School-based health centers can provide access to healthcare for students who may not otherwise receive care. Rural students may face barriers to accessing healthcare services including long distances to providers, lack of reliable transportation, work demands of students" parents, poverty, lack of health insurance, and the cost of healthcare. School-based health centers often operate as a partnership between the school and a community health center, hospital, or local health department to improve the health of students, as well as the community as a whole.

I'd like to thank my opponent for creating this debate.

PLAGIARISM

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

https://www.ruralhealthinfo.org...

I ask the voters to consider this when voting on this debate.

paridhi forfeited this round.

Con

Well, as Con, I'm supposed to negate my opponent's arguments, but that's the problem... He hasn't made any original arguments. I'm supposed to be debating him, not the author of the essay my opponent plagiarized. So, with that in mind, I'm still waiting for him to make his own argument. Hopefully my opponent will return to the debate in the next round.

Con

With our national debt over $19 trillion, the last thing we need is another government program. [1] This would be a drain on our economy, and therefore should be avoided.

Reasons for voting decision: Biases: I agree with con Conduct: Pro plagiarized (-1), both sides failed to make arguments at the appropriate times (0), and con introduced a new argument without giving pro the opportunity to respond (+1). The result is a tie. Spelling and grammar: N/A- no debate occurred. Arguments: N/A- no debate occurred. I neither recognize pro's plagiarized opening nor con's closing statement wherein he introduces a new argument without giving pro a chance to respond. Sources: N/A- no debate occurred.
