 Pro Longer Lunches = Smarter Students Kids are time crunched at lunch Kids need food Kids need energy from food Kids are sometimes protesting longer lunches Kids have recess, and then lunch, they need more food to make up that energyReport this Argument Con For one, I don't understand where you made the connection "Longer lunches = Smarter students". Secondly, a lot of your argument is generic. Yes kids need food, and kids protesting longer lunches in no way adds to your argument. Now, for my argument, I'll go on the offensive. In your argument, you stated "Kids have recess, and then lunch, they need more food to make up that energy". How so? There is a very specific meal cycle in a day. The average meal takes six to eight hours to pass through your entire digestive tract, nearly an hour more than the average school day, which is seven hours. It is during the digestive process that nutrients are released into the blood via the stomach and the cilia in the intestines. While I know this is a conglomeration of facts, please allow me to explain. The average lunch for a student 4 - 9 years of age in 500 to 600 calories. What I find absurd is that you believe a student can somehow burn these calories in half an hour, which is the typical recess, and at the longest, an hour. The amount of physical activity required for this to occur far exceeds the time and the physical capability of anyone of this age. This calorie intake (lunch) supplies energy until the end of the day. Dinner, well, this supplies calories in your sleep, which believe it or not, you burn a significant amount of calories in your sleep. If your problem is children running out of energy during the day, well this is a problem with their calorie intake in the morning (breakfast) not their lunch. Next argument I plan to attack educational issues, I didn't want to exhaust all my options in one go...Report this Argument

7 points to Con. Reasons for voting decision: Con overall had a better point and Con actually tried.

[*Reason for removal*] (1) The voter doesn't explain conduct, S&G or sources. (2) Arguments are too generally explained, as this could be applied to practically any debate. The voter needs to directly and specifically address points made by both debaters.

3 points to Con (Arguments). Reasons for voting decision: Con made a well thought out argument that used good logic, whereas Pro just sort of made statements without backing them up by any credible means.

[*Reason for removal*] The voter needs to directly and specifically address points made by both debaters. This RFD is too generalized and could be applied to practically any debate.
