Should schools have open lunch?
Debate Rounds (3)
Also, some students won't use this time devoted for the students to have lunch for other purposes like selling/buying drugs. Honestly, many students just can't be trusted to leave the school for lunch. At school they are protected and disciplined.
This argument is not my own, but when I was reading about this I read something that someone else wrote about one of their experiences with open campus/lunch:
In high school, my school allowed open campus lunch. One day at a local store about a quarter of a mile from school a hot headed young woman got into an argument with a friend of mine. While I was there to witness the argument, my friend was the bigger person and walked away. The girl proceeded to call a friend of hers and in about 3 minute he pulled up to the store we were at. She described what my friend was wearing and the guy left the store. I tried calling my friend just to let him know what had happened and to be careful and I went back to school. In the last period of the day our principal came on the speaker and made an announcement that my friend had been involved in a hit and run accident at lunch and was in critical condition. The next morning he died. So I say no because sometimes you give to much freedom to the wrong people. Their argument was nothing that serious to lose his life over.
Let say I go to Dairy Queen. Since it's not that far from my school, I walk. When I walk in, the line is 50 miles long. So I go to a different restaurant, and order food. I sit down and eat it and head back to school. When I get back, I find out I'm 10 minutes late to my next class. I get sent to the office and get my open lunch privilege taken away, along with my driving privilege.
So you see, when I'm late, I get my privileges taken away.
Since mostly everyone will go someplace for lunch, they will see someone doing drugs and report them. And the teachers will be able to tell if they have taken drugs or not.
As for the accidents, i live in a very small town. There are hardly any accidents because of how small the town is.
Wholock forfeited this round.

Reasons for voting decision: Pro had the burden of proof and they failed to provide any arguments in their favor. Simply providing rebuttals to Con's case is insufficient if you have the burden of proof. Con's sole argument still stands since Con's argument stated that people will come back from school late. Pro then responded using their personal life as an example to counter. Since the resolution is about all school (it simply says schools), this means that Pro's rebuttal is rendered insufficient in the case of most schools and therefore Con's sole argument stands and Pro was unable to meet her BOP. Conduct is awarded to Pro due to the forfeiture.
