You said you wanted to debate it, now here's your chance! I have to go to sleep, but here was my post from the earlier one. In the event that you want to debate the pro side, we could have another debate if you want. XD Anyway, to the argument. The fact is, I've been noticing trends throughout areas, especially in my school district, where people and the school administration tend to give more funds for the athletic department, rather then all the academic programs that exist in the scho...

This is my first debate on this site, and I'm glad to try it out! Anyway, to the argument. The fact is, I've been noticing trends throughout areas, especially in my school district, where people and the school administration tend to give more funds for the athletic department, rather then all the academic programs that exist in the school.
