I think school should not have longer days because, 1. kids are already tired by the end of school days now. 2. with a longer school day people would learn less because they would be more exhausted and cause a sorter attention spam.
who ever my oppenet is please donot critacize about spelling.

I would first like to thank my opponent for instigating this debate; I look forward to an engaging and constructive result.
Now, as my opponent set the timer to ten minutes, I'll skip the rhetoric and get straight down to countering my opponent's points.

My opponent first claims that students are not capable of lasting through any additional hours of schoolwork, however, she has yet to cite a source backing up her beliefs, therefore, said point is invalidated until further notice.
In fact, (Since I am assuming we are talking about the United States here.), in comparison to several Middle Eastern countries (Japan, etc.),[1] we are actually falling behind in school hours, and considering the level of international competition, we should further extend school hours to bolster our ability to compete at a global level.

Thank you.
