Inception

Pro

School is good because one needs an education to achieve their dreams and earn a lot of money with their college degree someday instead of continuing through life uneducated and not prepared to take on the real world. School is helpful because you are able to learn many new things that will benefit you in the future and can help prepare you to take on challenges.

while my opponet makes an excelent aguement i have to disagree on this topic. while eductaion is important you don't need a formal education to achieve your goals. some peoples goals entails thenm to work at mcdonalds for the rest of their ike. the didn't need a formal educations to reach their goals. Some people are uneducated andthey achieve their dreams. such as William Kamkwamba. If you haven't heard of him. he is a youing man in africa who with no education built a windmill to supply electricity to his little village. His dream was to go to a collage and with no education he achieved his dream. so you don't have to neccesarly get an education to reach your dreams.

Reasons for voting decision: Education is important, though Pro could have had much better arguments, as they were exceedingly general, while Con used specifics. Pro forfeited a round which nearly always causes one to lose conduct, this not being an exception. Con, you have to write in English. That sounds harsh, but it's really important. You look so much smarter when you use real words and proper grammar. Sorry to be so frank.
