Open for comment's , votes , and arguments.


I'll accept this debate and start off with a short explanation of why i accepted. Firstly i think you made this debate on purpose , thinking that there would be no way for you to lose. So from the star ti'm only argueing to prove that wrong.

Now, I belive that parents should be allowed to , through the democratic process lower the number of schooldays that their child attends school a year. Affter all if anyone is deciding that children aught to go to school less it should be parents not some government official who neither knows or loves our children like we do.
Debate Round No. 1


First I just made a argument to argue , okay.

Second I think that parents should have a certain amount of days they should be able to pull there kids out of school. Maybe 15 days per year.


I do not advocate parents being able to pull their children out of school at whim, the child's education is more improtant than a family trip. However what i do support is the abbility of parents, not school boards to decide how long, and how much their children go to school.

One sided debate IMO.

I think they already do. Parents can cause any number of things to prevent the kid from attending.
