Wow. My opponent starts off with a forfeit!

I'll move straight onto refutations (due to lack of time).

"Laptops should be allowed in classrooms!"

1.) Supports my Side

Yes. I completely agree with; laptops SHOULD be allowed in classrooms. As a Neg, my opponent was to negate the resolution. Unfortunately, due to lack of understanding, my opponent supported my side.

2.) Laptops are Useful for Education

A. Statistics prove that Laptops increase the quality of education.

"A 2004 study reported in USA Today claims that laptops and hand-held computers help with schoolwork and improve grades.
Scientists gave laptops to 25 students from Yankton High School in South Dakota during the first quarter of the year, and found
that test averages of students with laptops increased, on average, by 5.7 percent.

Test scores rose 3.2 percentage points for students without laptops, although a teacher at Yankton High School said, 'Those with
laptops may have simply been better students.'

The 24 students with laptops had higher grade-point averages than the students who didn't use laptops -- a 3.26 GPA, compared to 2.82 among 21 students without laptops." [1]

This statistic proves how students with laptops usually do better, during school.

For all these reasons, please vote for the Affirmative side of this debate. Thank you.

Laptops will provide a faster and easier way to sources and information for an essay, research paper, etc.
School Laptops could have restrictions which will prevent students from going on to inappropriate websites, such as Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.

2. already laptops provided by school..?
3. allowed to bring laptops in school?
