Should Summer Break Be Ten Weeks Long?

Joey888
SJM

Many people do not like school. I, on the other hand enjoy school. When summer break comes around, I am relieved, but after a few weeks, I get bored and long to go back to school. My point of argument today is if summer break should be shortened from 10 weeks, to perhaps, 8. Many students can benefit from longer school years. Over the course of the school year, there are many breaks, including winter, Thanksgiving, and spring. On top of that, you have several holidays. Two extra weeks wouldn't h...

They all tell me you should be aware of the happenings around us. I tell them that since current events don't affect me and I don't affect them, then why shall I fill my head with unuseful knowledge? No answer....

Should wolves be feared, or are they just as scared of us as we are of them?

MWonderWolf
SJM

I am pro, so I will be arguing that wolves are not scary. I am for wolves. First round is JUST FOR ACCEPTANCE! Please do not accept if you do not take this seriously. So, if you accept, your first round argument should just be something like, "I accept". It is under the tab 'education' because this will test how much education you have had on real wolves, and not the big bad wolf, which isn't real. Thank you for debating....

Homework Should Not Be Required

Danielle

Many thanks to my opponent for accepting this challenge. I'll be arguing that on balance, teachers should not assign homework. My opponent can use Round 1 for acceptance and I'll begin my contentions in R2. Thanks!...

High schools have a tardy policy of 3 tardies to equal a detention

Tardy-Policy
PowerPikachu21

I think tardy policies should be changed to three tardies to equal one detention because I think some of the students have a hard time getting to school and usually it is not really the student's fault. In some cases the students have to depend on their parents or on trains which would at times either break down or the parent would just not take the student at all. I strongly believe that we should give students a chance if they arrive late and detentions have mostly been about tardies only. < 3...
