Pro

Students need more free time. Too much homework really makes students tired.

Con

I will debate you that students do not need more free time and less homework. You did not specify, but as the instigator, you have the burden of proof.

Reasons for voting decision: It's close, as Pro points out "Too much homework really makes students tired." and Con does not address this nor provide any counter-arguments. However, Pro did not connect the dots and show the current level of homework is "too much". Thus, the burden of proof is not met and Con wins on arguments. Due to the forfeited round, Con also wins on conduct.
