Pro

Teachers use their phones in school all the time and its no fair to us students to not be able to.
The-Voice-of-Truth

Con

Acceptance:
I accept. I would like to thank Pro for arguing my side.

Arguments:
Teachers should not use their phones in school, as it can be distracting to the teacher using the device and other students nearby. [1] Plus, as Pro said (again, thank you for arguing my side), it is not fair to the students if teachers can use them, but not the students.

That is all, as I am very near my character limit.

>Reported vote: CommunistDog // Moderator action: Removed<

7 points to Con. Reasons for voting decision: Nice argument!

[*Reason for removal*] This is an obvious vote bomb. It awards all 7 points. Makes no attempt to explain conduct, S&G, and sources. And it's argument point explanation is no more than a two word restatement of the point category.

Reasons for voting decision: -Con gets conduct points because he had his arguments better organized. -Con gets more convincing argument points because, obviously , Pro's only turn was used to help Con. And Con did a good job in using that advantage. -Con gets most reliable source points because out of this debate he used a source, which was more than Pro with 0 sources. This was a fairly easy win for Con and I am kinda disappointed that all Pro put was quote "Teachers use their phones in school all the time and it's no fair to us students to not be able to."
