The Dubuque Schools district( in Iowa) is enforcing a new thing. When kids go on spring break, they lose their memory of what they learned over the 2 weeks. I agree. When kids come back from the break, They don't remember what they were taught. Take Algebra for an example; At our schools kids don't try to remember what they were taught. They just throw it away! And to that, my friends I say "THAT IS NOT GOING TO HELP YOU GET ANYWHERE!"

A 1-hour late start every Friday is not only going to have to cause all schools to revolutionise their timetables to miss out an hour of learning time that they would have done weekly (often resulting in more weekly homework as a result, per subject).

Additionally, one hour per week isn't going to help you cope with school. A nice, easygoing break is going to help some really stressed out students not kill themselves.

If you're a nerd, then good for you; use the holiday/vacation to structure our own study plan and get ahead of the herd. If you're a lazy student then so be it.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct for the forfeit. Arguments for Pro's presentation of arguments, and because Con forfeited. Sourcing did not seem justified. S&G did not, either, but it seems Con willingly forfeited that category, so I'll award it. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.
