EdgeOfTheInfinite

First round is for acceptance and definitions though definitions can be placed and clarified in the second round as well but none else. Second round for arguments only. Third round for rebuttals only. Fourth round is for counter-rebuttals and concluding statements. Evolution-the process by which different kinds of living organisms are thought to have developed and diversified from earlier forms during the history of the earth.

I will start this debate by defining the motion. By single-sex schools, I mean schools with only girls or only boys in one school. As I am done defining to motion, I will begin my arguments. 1. Distraction Children of he opposite sex can be a distraction. Especially for middle and high school students, there could be students who date each other, and this could be a big distraction for students who need to study. As you know, middle and high school is the time to study to o to a better high...
