Many thanks to my opponent for accepting this challenge. I'll be arguing that on balance, teachers should not assign homework. My opponent can use Round 1 for acceptance and I'll begin my contentions in R2. Thanks!...

English spoken by today's youth

Last week, on my way home from an old friend"s house, I expected to sit in peace in the bus and relax through the forty minutes ride home. Unfortunately, my quiet time was suddenly interrupted when three adolescents entered the bus and started speaking in an almost unrecognizable way to each other. I could not help but wonder how English became such a strange language to me. English, the language I have used to communicate with thousands and thousands of people throughout my life, the language I...

Should Schools Have Longer School Hours?

Most schools start at eight in the morning and end at half past two in the afternoon. Some people believe that school hours should be extended, but I don't think so. School hours should remain just the way they are. This is because long hours of school will lead to stress and cause students' academic performance to drop. We do not want this...

Should zoos be banned or abolished?

Dark_Soul943
jscher

I feel that zoos should not be abolished, and therefore, I am taking the con side of the argument.1. Zoos save animals from extinction, and they reproduce the endangered animals so that they can release them into the wild later. Zoos also provide a safe environment for many endangered animals. In the wild many of these animals would die because of illnesses, hunting, and starvation. Without zoos caring and breeding the endangered species of the black rhino, they would have been...
