Should Middle School start at 8 or 9 instead of 7
Debate Rounds (3)
Also, if school starts later, then the school would have to leave later. It is required by law that school be at least 7 hours a day. This includes lunch and breaks in between classes. If school were to start at 8 or 9 in the morning, then the school would have to tack on that one or two hours to the other end of the day and school would get out at 3 or 4 in the afternoon, giving students less time to complete assignments and enjoy themselves.
DuhBossSoss forfeited this round.
According to Pro, school should start late because students would be more aware.
Why you should vote Con...
As I stated earlier, schools should start at 7:00am instead of 8:00 or 9:00am because that lost time must be added on somewhere else. The only logical answer to that would be to add it on at the end of the school day making school stay later into the day. This gives students less time to complete their homework and less time to enjoy themselves before having to sleep again.
There would be no sleep deprivation issue if schools started at 7:00am because students can still get the recommended 9+ hours of sleep if they would just go to bed at 8:30 or 9:00pm. Getting the recommended amount of sleep would keep kids alert at the beginning and throughout the school day.
And finally, students would still have enough time to get ready in the morning if school started at 7:00am. Students can get up at 6:00am and still have a good half hour-forty five minuets to get ready for the day ahead without being late or waking up at an ungodly time.
Thank you. :)

Reasons for voting decision: Pro provided little argumentation, which Con addressed adequately. Con showed how kids could still get 9+ hours of sleep, and still go to school, during the currently allotted times. Con also brought up the problem of delaying the start of school, which Pro never addressed. Conduct to Con for Pro's forfeit.
