Thanks to pro for an interesting debate topic.
Shoud Facebook be allowed in school, I will provide 5 reasons why we should not allow Facebook in school
1. students would abuse, if you gave them access, they would find a way to get through all loopholes
2. It distracts students from their work
3. It's the same as talking in class
4. No benefit
5. as the instigator, he requires Burdon of proof, he has provided no evidence for Facebook in school

See thats why I said only when they get there work done. Also Teachers should be allowed to monator the students while they are on Facebook at all times to make sure that they are not screwing around. Also any student that is allowed on Facebook I believe should have to sit away from the rest of the class that isn't done with the volume off on the computer to ensure that the other students don't get distracted.

1. I'd like for any type of benefit of letting kid's be on facebook
2. Extend that students would abuse, if you gave them access, they would find a way to get through all loopholes
3. Also, my opponent lists that we should make them sit apart from the class. Why waste time and effort to let people blog
4. school is for work. (Yes I know the irony of this situation) but believe me, while in school, people need to work.
5. Also, Facebook is proven to cause lower grade
