    In modern societies, child labor is considered highly unethical and argues that

    In modern societies, child labor is considered highly unethical and argues that it is the right of children to get educated.

    Why use 'argues' and not 'argue'? I guess the subject of 'argues' is modern societies.

    The sentence is incorrect. 'Argues' has no subject.

    I made this sentence myself, that is why it is wrong. Actually, I should have asked to verify the sentence first.

    I think 'some argue that' is grammatical.
    I am not a teacher.
