Topic- Some people say that government should not put money on building theatres and sport stadium. They should spend more money on healthcare and education. Do you agree or disagree ?

In this modern era, it is undeniable that education and healthcare are essential for our life. Therefore some people think that the government should spend money on healthcare and education rather than theatres and sports stadiums. While this approach can be proved beneficial up to some extent, I disagree with the given statement.

On the one hand, there is numerous reason why the government should devote equal money to the entertainments sector, the first and foremost is that entertainment is also a basic human need even entertainment sectors encourage creativity and promotes harmony in society one tangible example, people learn about their history, tradition and culture through movies, songs and painting made by the artists. So, artists are the ambassadors of culture and play a vital role in elevating the level of civilization of the country. Secondly, without government funding, some sports and entertainment theatre would not be able to work. For instance, most of the stadiums and theatres depend on government funds because there is no visible source of income, therefore most of the entertainment sector depends on government aid.

Furthermore, sports stadiums attract millions of spectators to watch matches every year. Many more millions watch games on television, read about them in the newspaper and discuss them with their friends. Consequently, we can not say these are unnecessary expenditures and therefore government not ignore them.

On the other hand, it often believes that the government should allocate more sense to the education and the healthcare sector. Admittedly, I will agree with the given statement generally in the unprivileged country, where the people's first priority to get food and basic necessities. I believe that in these places the government should focus more on healthcare and education compare to entertainment.

In conclusion, while medicine and education are needs that we recognize, theatrical or sports events are also basic needs. Therefore the government should allocate resources for both these things.

Feedback

(1) Be careful using prepared/memorized sentences. There is no "approach" so to speak in the topic, so the examiner will see that this is a memorized phrase.

(2) How about ticket sales from sporting events, plays and concerts?

(3) I am not sure what you mean by 'sense'? Funds maybe?
