Con

Should school uniforms be allowed?
Devinflynn

Pro

I believe school uniforms should be worn. School uniforms have a lot of benefits. When you're rushing around in the morning trying to get ready and find clothes to wear, a uniform could be a great help. It's quick and easy because it's the same outfit everyday, and you don't have to worry about picking out/finding different clothes to wear every day. Also, if everyone in school is wearing the same uniform, it decreases the amount of judgment towards other people's clothing. A uniform creates no sense of individuality, but that is not important at school, because we are at school to learn, and our outfits have nothing to do with it. Nobody's uniform is going to cause distraction to a learning process.

I believe that there should be no uniforms in school. People should be allowed to wear whatever they want- it is their God given right. The first amendment establishes freedom of speech, which is hand in hand with freedom of expression. If you take away a persons ability to chose what they get to wear, you take away their sense of individuality and the things that set them apart from other people. As long as there is a reasonable dress code, what people wear to school should not affect learning of others in schools.

A sense of individuality can be shown through more than clothing. Yes, people express themselves with their clothing, but that can be done in places other than school. Individuality also comes from personality and people's actions. Individuality can still be expressed if you wear a uniform.

Reasons for voting decision: Conduct - Tie. Both had proper conduct throughout. S&G - Tie. Both had adequate spelling and grammar throughout the debate. Arguments - Pro. Pro presented two arguments, efficiency in the morning time while getting dressed, and a decrease in negative judgement from the lack of individuality brought about by uniforms. Con didn't rebut the efficiency argument at all, so I'll consider that a dropped argument. Furthermore, Con argued that a lack of individuality is bad and freedom of expression is important to uphold. Pro rebuts this by stating that student can still have individuality. Due to Pro rebutting every point raised by Con, whereas Con dropped an entire argument, I award the win to Pro. Sources - Tie. Neither utilized sources in this debate.
