Debate Round No. 1


Many studies show that students who get breaks (like recess) fare better in school. says, "studies show that kids behave better, focus more, and do better in school if you let them out to play." [1]
I look forward to reading your arguments.




I"m not a kid.
Schools should ban extra recess because some schools send students outside for recess when the tempature is below 30 degrees and that can prevent frostbites and some schools send kids outside for recess when tempature is over 100 degrees which can prevent heat strokes kids can get hurt more easily during extra recess and bully"s will bully kids more often and there are higher chances of fights happening.

I can see that you are not a kid. Otherwise, if you were, you would know what every kid knows: While there are some days with inhospitable weather, the vast majority of days are perfectly fine and are highly enjoyable while outside. Yes, there are some days with bad weather, but most are not nearly bad enough to present health risks. If such a situation arose, the teachers could eliminate recess for the day.

Perhaps there is a *slightly* higher risk of injury while outside, but this is minimal and a normal part of life. If children are taught to avoid the outdoors at all, much less the shielded playground, but instead avoid the "danger", then what will become of our culture?
