This debate is over the idea of after-school detention and whether it does or does not help high school students.
I do not believe that after-school detentions help high school students in any capacity. I will be basing this belief off of the following points:
(1) Detentions do not help the student's personal relationships.
(2) Detentions do not help the student's academic standing.
(3) Detentions do not help the student's work ethic.
(4) Detentions do not help the student's overall preparedness for the real world.
The contender will be arguing against these points. The contender is free to add any points that s/he feels will help his or her argument; all that is asked is for the contender to please post the points at the beginning of the first round. Any new points introduced after the first round will be disregarded.
