Debate Round No. 2

Singhal forfeited this round.

I have demonstrated that the participation in sports can be damaging to one's ability to learn, and that sports should not be compulsory in school. PRO has made a bald assertion and has failed to support it with either argumentation or evidence.

Are you arguing to Require all students to be a part of a sports team in school?

I feel forcing a student to participate in an extra-curricular activity would not be beneficial to students as a whole at any level of schooling.
