Lets be real. We all go to school for the diploma. No one loves to learn or more like we are forced to learn. Most of us forget everything we learned after we graduate.

I want to thank Pro for starting this debate.

Pro is affirming the resolution that: We Go To School For The Diploma Not For The Love Of Learning.

I'm negating that resolution based on the grounds that "we" is plural and thus Pro is making an absolute claim about all people.

This is an incredible burden for Pro to overcome as he now has to show why every person alive goes to school just for the diploma.

I now return the floor to Pro so he may begin fulfilling his burden.

Thank you.

Con

My opponent has forfeited Round 2.

I will extend the opportunity, once again, for Pro to begin with opening arguments.

If Pro fails to present anything in the next round, I will begin with my own arguments in order to negate the resolution.

I now return the floor to Pro, thank you.

I. Pro fails to affirm the resolution

There has been no evidence given by Pro to justify the claim that we only go to school for the diploma. As it stands now, it's nothing more than a baseless opinion.

II. Proof saying otherwise

At this point, I just need to show one case where someone goes to school because they love learning:

It's why Justin Chess goes to school. [1]
