Con

Hey there! Just wanted to hear from people that don't think homework is necessary for schools. I will be taking the Con side of this debate, and will argue that homework is indeed necessary and should be required for any school.

The debate will work as follows:

Round 1: Acceptance
Round 2: Arguments (NO rebuttals)
Round 3: Rebuttals
Round 4: Rebuttals to Rebuttals, Final Remarks

Good luck!

Round 1 is for acceptance... thanks, and good luck!

Unfortunately my opponent has forfeited the round set aside for Arguments.

He has asked that we scrap this debate and start an entirely new one.

I have no problem with that, and will challenge him to a new discussion.

If he doesn't accept, he is free to make his proactive case next round, and we can continue this debate outside the framework we have initially agreed upon. I look forward to a great debate either way. Thanks!

Hey! Sorry I forfeited. Can we redo this on a different debate? I was busy this weekend and didn't have a chance to respond.

The challenge could use some additional detail in my opinion.
The term homework should be defined.
The number of students and classes that an imaginary teacher has should also be stated for example purposes.
What kind of evidence is needed or will both sides have the benefit of assumption?
