Should students be in smaller classes?

blueflames228
Natethemate

Students who were in a small class in grades 4 to 6 had better school achievement and higher wages as adults than those who were in large classes. This is shown in research done at IFAU, the Institute for Evaluation of Labor Market and Education Policy, in Sweden. Smaller classes are also found to be profitable to society. Whether a large or small class size plays any role in student learning is heatedly debated. Previous (primarily American) research has shown that small classes improve scho...

Hello, I am literally placing my entire argument for an old National Speech and Debate Association LD topic here. The high school debate season is over and I'm interested in continuing practice. I look forward to replies. Resolved: The United States ought to limit qualified immunity for police officers. "We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable Rights, that among these are Life, Liberty and the...

Is Jesus God? (Christian vs Muslim Debate)

ChristianAnarchist
Moobattle

My opening argument for the thesis on Jesus being God is that not only did he affirm and claim deity, but his own disciples believed in his deity as well. In order for my opponent to win this debate, he/she will have to demonstrate these three forms of criteria: 1. The Bible consistently as a whole attests to Jesus not being God. 2. The Old Testament is exclusively Unitarian. 3. Only Unitarianism is Monotheism. If my opponent can make an alternative form of criteria that is sufficient f...

smoking should be banned

smoking should not be banned because I believe that it's there choice and let them do what they want to do. if not, stress could affect the person consuming a cigar or tobacco and this could lead to worse health than taking a cigar and possibly suicide. even though this is bad for anyone's health it's there problem if they get cancer so let them do what they want to do....

Subjective Morality (Moral Relativism) ought to be encoraged over Objective Morality (Moral Realism)

MakeDebatingGreatAgain
JustMasum

I will be arguing that subjective morality should be preferred to objective morality, for reasons to be discussed in my arguments. My opponent will argue for moral objectivity/moral realism. (Moral realism falls under moral objectivity.)Subjective morality/Moral Relativism is defined as: Moral codes and laws can not be true of false from an objective viewpoint, but only from an individuals subjective viewpoint.

Does God exist

Mariodude34500
Oliver_Douglass

I'm arguing that god does not exist. Only two things need to be stated upfront. 1. The burden of proof is on my opponent because they are making a positive claim 2. Don't use your Holy book to justify your religion. Saying Christianity is true because the bible said so for example doesn't work because your basically just saying my holy book is true because it says so...

Cobalt

Rules of the debate: 1. No attacking each other personally 2. Don't try to forge or exaggerate facts 3. Let's debate and walk out of this as human beings 4. First round will be introduction round with no arguments I kinda gave some slack for my side for including hermaphrodite as a gender; but I (Pro) will be arguing how why there are two main genders, male and female, and a possible third gender of hermaphrodite. My opponent (Con) will be arguing how and why there are more than three gende...
