Many years ago, some scholars were strongly against the certification of English test that was a must for a student to get the degree. So some colleges canceled the rules. But recently, The Chinese first class university announced that swimming skill is necessary for degree. It has been the hot issue, then many people give their opinions.
On the one hand, some people are favorable of this regulation, because swimming skill is really important. Most of the accidents happened in the river. The swimming skill can protect them from dying. What’s more, foreign schools take the swimming class as the regular lesson. So almost every foreign kid can swim, which is the basic skill.
On the other hand, some people argue that even the student can’t swim, they can’t be denied by lacking the swimming skill. They need the degree to find a job. They are equipped with many skills and are capable of a lot of things. Their ability has nothing to do with swimming skill.
I think that school should open the class for students to learn swimming skill. If they fail, they still can make up by learning other lesson. The degree can be got by many ways.
