School should NOT be 4 days long. The main purpose of school is to ready students foe the future. If students do not get enough school time, In the future the economy will collapse completely and the human race will be in danger.


Schools in the U.S. were private up to 1820, public by 1870. Over time schools crowded out apprenticeships. Kids are unexposed to the real-world. The economy will not collapse with a 4 day week. It did not occur before 1870. My plan: 4 days of school, day 5 will be employer day care. As kids mature they will participate and get real-world experience. School day length will increase to match a business day making it easier on parents. This will address schools current short-comings.

Not a good start to a debate. Apart from the slippery slope, you didn't specify whether or not there would be less school days throughout the year, leaving a lot of wiggle room for your challenger. If you want a challenge, I'd be happy to debate you.

Reasons for voting decision: Arguments were refuted by Pro by showing how it wasn't that bad and how the economy wouldn't collapse. Due to the fact that there was no second round Con could not refute Pro's arguments.
