Con

Legal liability is another justification for cutting recess times. Children could fall while
jumping rope or get hit with a baseball. Some administrators are skittish about making
themselves vulnerable to any legal action.
" As schools cut back on expenses because of budget cuts, paraprofessionals are often cut
from the staff and supervision at recess becomes a problem. Volunteers are difficult to
find for a recess duty.
" Strangers can access a playground easily at some schools and sexual predators could be
a concern.
" Bullying can also thrive in an unstructured environment. Bullying usually takes place
outside of the classroom in hallways, locker rooms, playgrounds, buses, and bathrooms.
Less recess time allows for less bullying time.

Pro

I would like to thank my opponent for creating this debate.

PLAGIARISM

My opponent plagiarized his entire first round argument from the following website:

https://prezi.com...

I ask the voters to consider this when voting on this debate.
Debate Round No. 1

Con

extra recess should be banned because students can get frostbites and heat strokes
dsjpk5

Pro

The resolution is "extra recess should be banned". I am Pro. My opponent is Con. With this in mind, my opponent has just conceded the debate this round when she said, "extra recess should be banned...".

I accept her concession. Please vote Pro.
Debate Round No. 2

i didnt playderize my first round. i believe my opponent is trying to cheat. extra recess should be banned bc of alot of reasons
dsjpk5

Pro

Again, I would like to thank my opponent for a lovely debate. It was fun!

As for whether or not she plagiarized in round one, I invite the voters to click on the link I provided and decide for themselves.

Again, the resolution is "extra recess should be banned". I am Pro. This means I agree with the premise of banning extra recess. So, when my opponent argues for banning extra recess, she's agreeing with me. That's paramount to a concession.

My argument is simple: I think we should ban extra recess because it's unsafe. Kids would be safer if they stayed inside. If they have extra recess, they take unnecessary risks by going outside. They could be struck by lightning, or engulfed in a swarm of locusts!

Having said that, I think the voter meant "concession" when he said "forfeit". I'm not lobbying for reinstatement, just clarifying what I think he meant.

I knew that vote would be removed if anyone reported it.

>Reported vote: Mharman// Mod action: Removed<

7 points to Pro. Reasons for voting decision: plagarism and ff

[*Reason for removal*] (1) The voter doesn"t explain S&G. (2) While a forfeit and plagiarism are certainly reasons to award conduct, and the latter can be used to justify sources, the voter must take the time to do so. Plagiarism, however, cannot be used as the sole justification for awarding arguments. The voter must explain those given the points made in the debate.

I am not sure if this is some sort of joke between the both of you in messing with the language, but based on the title of this debate, Extra Recess should not be banned.

One may argue that recess is a liability to the school and a waste of resources (hiring staff & time).

But studies show the contrary and the benifits of having extra recess.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct: Pro, Con plagiarized. S&G: Pro, in the rounds Con didn't plagiarize I spotted numerous errors. Didn't affect readability but it was still bad. Arguments: Pro. Con argued against his own position. Sources: Pro, due to lack of plagiarism.
