This is a debate of tenures for teachers. The definitions are to be set such that: Tenures are to be defined as allowing a teacher to be guaranteed the teaching position for the rest of their life (just for this debate to simplify definitions). All terms and words are to be based on the U.S. culture, economy, system(s), etc. Pro will be for the removal of tenures while Con will be for the status quo which is the existence of tenures.

Death Penalty

I don't believe that serious criminals should be sentenced to death. Horrible crimes, like murder or rape, don't deserve a quick exit. The criminals will die at some point anyway, so why not keep them in jail until their deaths? It's worse....

This is a debate that Gay Marriage should not be legal where limits are to be set for Californian law and customs. Gay Marriage is defined as being: Lawful Marriage between 2 people of same gender.

Current California law makes gay marriage illegal. This however, violates the 1st Amendment as well...
