Should Minecraft be in schools?

Should Minecraft be in schools? Would teachers allow that? Research from debate.org says that 87 percent of kids in schools agree that Minecraft should be in schools.

Thirteen percent of kids say no. Of the kids that do not agree, one person says it lacks realism and has no plot. We disagree because once you finish your first objective, you could create a brand-new one.

Some parents believe that it's just a waste of time -- that their kids should be learning in school, not playing video games. Backers of Minecraft say it should definitely be in schools because it teaches fractions, science and social studies.

We believe it promotes problem-solving skills. What do you think? Should Minecraft should be in schools? We think it should! It is fun and it definitely goes beyond entertainment.
