Study on Skipping School

Thursday's show will bring you some of the results of a new study on skipping school:  how many American students do it, what they're doing instead of attending class, and what they say could influence them to skip less often.

What are your ideas on that?  How would you encourage someone to stop skipping?

What Makes a House a House?

Monday's edition of CNN Student News will show you what one man calls the "world's smallest house."   There's no question that, for a house, it's small:  It measures just one square meter, which works out to a little more than 10 square feet.  It has a roof, a lockable door, a foldable desk, and a window.

But that's it.  No bathroom, no kitchen, no couch, no TV.  So calling this a house really depends on how you define a house.

We're hoping you'll define it here.  What makes a house a house?  ...and as far as this house is concerned, could you live in it for a week?

Cameras, Security and Privacy

On Thursday's show, we discuss how the U.S. government pays for projects that use security cameras to monitor certain places. In some of these projects, cameras are installed around a building or a city, and they send images to police who keep tabs on what's happening.

What are your thoughts on this?  Do you think security cameras are a threat to privacy if they're recording what people do in public, or do you think they're acceptable if they're intended to keep people safer?
