19 November minutes

8:00pm study-hall every school night affects students positively.

To summarize, the affirmative insists that study-hall develops studying habits; prevents the wasting of time at internet cafes, bad influences, shenanigans and tomfoolery; helps students learn group manners. The negative insists that study-hall is ineffective; students cannot use services because they are stuck at school until 8:00pm and those establishments close (e.g., banks, post offices); students do not often study at study hall--many sleep, disturb others, and create a bad atmosphere.


Combined score (constructive, rebuttal)
  1. Affirmative: 117
  2. Negative: 115
Follow-up questioning
  1. Affirmative: 4
  2. Negative: 8
Final result: Negative persuasion
  1. Affirmative: 121
  2. Negative: 123
The negative constructive side consisted of Kim Min-seop, Lee Ji-hyeon, and Lee Kang-woo; the negative rebuttal side consisted of Kang Ji-soo, Bae Jun-han, and Jang Han-su.

In a recent school poll, sixty-one percent of class 2-10 students said that staying at study-hall until 8:00 pm has affected them positively.
