Pro

I think that schools should have security for various reasons, like to prevent bullying, or for more safety like in case an emergency, there are more people to help
ninamary54

Con

Schools should not have security guards because that puts lot's of pressure on the kids. The parents will feel like the school is so unsafe that they need security guards. Imagine a parent having to tell someone that they have security guards at school.

Pro

yes but the parents' would think that the school is safer with security and less accidents would happen less and children would be hurt less

Con

Schools should be locked at certain times, but security guards are not necessary. The students will be distracted and wantting to get out of class to look at the security guards. The students will also want to push the security guards to see what kind of things they can do.
Debate Round No. 2

Pro

Are you serious? A student would totally watch a security guard they've seen 100 times watch the school and keep an eye on students out of school and get distracted? Because that's totally going to happen.

Con

Have you been a student. When they get bored they stir things up. Students will eventually want to test the guards.

Schools need security guards to prevent unauthorized people from entering the school and start stealing stuff.

I do not understand why you create this debate because school absolutely needs security guards. The debate itself is unfair for the Con. This is not a kind of controversial topic.

Reasons for voting decision: Con, many of your arguments were based on something that might happen, not will happen. Even so, protection of the students are far more important than a couple of kids getting distracted by them.

Reasons for voting decision: Con should have brought up the extra cost security would bring or stuff like that, but all she said was kids would try to instigate them. That's not a strong enough argument to beat Pro's argument about added security, so I'm giving the win to Pro, although his argument wasn't stellar either.
