I think they should! AND this is an expiriment i guess. Im doing a paper for english and this is my topic and i need the opinion of the public. So please and Thanks!!
marinaspins

Con

schools should get more than 5. i would say 8. if the school uses them all thats fine, its better to be safe than sorry. and if the school doesnt use them, then thats better for the school because they got more time to teach.

I think in winters that are frigid we should get atleast 12 but normal winters would be about 8.

Con

Well they couldnt determine the amount of days ahead of time like that. no one really knows the weather for sure. i think 12 is a bit too much but better safe than sorry i guess

Yes, I believe they should too. We can't control the weather, we shouldn't be punished because of it.

Reasons for voting decision: This isn't even a debate because both Pro and Con took the same position! Con took the wrong side, losing her points in conduct. Then Con concedes to Pro's statement by saying "better safe than sorry I guess."
