I agree to the terms of this debate. I will be supporting the side of that students of all lunch should have long or longer lunch periods. Since my opponent has not clarified what he/she states as "longer" I will be using the term 'long' as 45 minutes to 1 hour when stating my argument.
I am a high school student and my lunch period is 1 hour long and it is very benefical to me and the rest of the student body and teachers.
That is exactly the point I am trying to make. During that time, students could go to their teachers and ask for help if they do not understand a subject. Or they could go retake a test that they got a bad grade on. Or they could just hang out with their friends for that whole one hour if they wish to do that.
