Pro

This round is mostly for fun; this is my second time doing this. First round is acceptance.

Rules
1. Can use only 1 (one) sentence in each round (after acceptance round)*
2. No run-on sentences
3. No profanity; keep it clean
4. No personal attacks
5. Sarcasm is allowed, as long as use of it doesn't violate rules #3 and #4
6. Failure to adhere to rules results in forfeiture.

*If your opponent violates one of the rules, you are allowed to use more than one sentence to address it.

Debate Topic
Here are three possible debate topics. Con will decide which to use. Pro (me) will be for the topic and Con will be against it. Please say which topic we will be using. :-)

1. Time is more valuable than money.

2. School should be year round.

3. Quality has been lost.

Any questions? Ask in the comments!

Con

I'll accept this debate. I think I will choose the second topic. Good luck!
Debate Round No. 1
LegalizeLiberty

Pro

If school was year round, more information would be retained by the students.
TN05

Con

If school was held year-round the economy would suffer because students would have much less time to find, attain, and work at a job.
Debate Round No. 2
LegalizeLiberty

Pro

A student's main priority is to learn; school through the summer assists in that end.
TN05

Con

Year-round school would nessecarily limit the freedom of families to move, plan vacations, or visit relatives.

Reasons for voting decision: Spelling and conduct to counter Georgenewland's unjustified vote. Neither of them made any spelling, grammar, or conduct errors. Arguments go to Con because Pro basically repeated his argument, which wasn't very strong in the first place.

Reasons for voting decision: Con was the better one here, I think he used better spelling and grammar, and who wants to do something all year round it would get boring after a while.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro didn't meet his burden of proof, and Con's argument about the economy and student's lack of ability to work wasn't bad.
