I will post a quick argument since i have 10 minutes left.

So, learning a second language is beneficial to the student, as most countries and states have two official languages, Learning both of these languages greatly benefits the student when seeking employment in the future, as they will be more likely hired because of this extra skill.

The main goal of a school is to educate students so that they can seek employment in the future. As a result, students should be required to learn a second language, as it greatly increases their chances of employment in the future and that is the goal of a school.

Therefore, vote PRO.

Another broad base debate topic that can go here, there and all over the place with arguments for and against. Nothing wrong with learning another language

No, I mean to get into college, the military, etc.
This debate is about whether a second language should be forced upon them, but obviously they can choose to.
