This should be an interesting debate!

Well, to start off, I would like to point out the main flows in pro's first argument. They said that electives "always make kids fell better and relieve the stress of school". However, I disagree with him/her. The first reason for this is that this sentence that I quoted is grammatically incorrect and makes no sense as it is. How can somebody "fell better"? Assuming they meant "feel", I will continue to refute this. I also disagree because there are many electives that do not make kids feel better, add stress to them, and require more work than a regular class. Some examples of these include pentathlon and debate. Therefore, I reject my opponent's one and only argument.

I would also like to point out a flaw in this topic. Longer electives? At the school I currently attend, electives take up normal class period, 42 minutes, and are everyday. Also, I believe at the school district I live in, electives take up a 45 minute class period, therefore this topic is flawed.

My opponent has forfeited Round 2, so I would like to take advantage of this and emphasize the important points I have made.

Pro's case is all about helping kids feel better, and relieving stress of school. However, in Round 1, I believe I did a good job of refuting this. First off, they made a spelling mistake that makes the argument hard to understand, so I can only assume what they meant. Secondly, to refute this, I stated that "there are many electives that do not make kids feel better, add stress to them, and require more work than a regular class. Some examples of these include pentathlon and debate." I believe that this is a solid refutation and will cause for my opponent's one and only argument to be discounted.

Secondly, I pointed out a flaw in the topic; that school electives are already long.

I have no idea why m opponent has forfeited, but I believe I have won this debate so far.
