They are super overpriced in my school


I accept. Based on my opponent's first round comment, I will assume that he/she is Pro and that I am Con, despite the debate set-up saying otherwise. I await my opponent's arguments.
Debate Round No. 1


AndreaEspinal189 forfeited this round.


Despite my opponent forfeiting her round, I can still make a negative case.

Negative Case

Marked by high prices [3].

Premise: You have to wear clothes anyway

If you consider that you have to wear clothes regardless of whether there is a school uniform, then the gap between school clothes and regular clothes becomes smaller, depending on the school.

A1: School clothes are not expensive

Case in point this school dress [1]. At only $18, it is rather cheap for a dress in comparison to the alternatives available, some of which can be found here [2]. Notice that not a single dress here is cheaper than $18, PLUS some of them nearly double in price compared to the school dress.

As you can see here, the school dress is not at all "marked by [a high price]". Rather, it is cheaper than a non-school dress. In showing that this school dress is not at all expensive, I have negated the resolution.


"They are super overpriced in my school"

Even if this were the case, this is a hasty generalisation, which is a logical fallay [4]. One instance of school uniforms perhaps being expensive (my opponent has not shown us yet that they are) does not mean that school uniforms are expensive.


Debate Round No. 2


AndreaEspinal189 forfeited this round.


My arguments and counter-arguments have been dropped. Please also note how my opponent was essentially Pro in this debate, as indicated by his/her first round.
