Students can pick people they know best to become a prefect because students and the other students can pick friends who are able to become a successful prefect then a teacher picking on a student who is only the student that the teacher doesn't know personally. Like the teacher only teaches the student but doesn't really know much about him/her.

I thank the challenger for posting this topic. I accept the debate and it should be fun to think about. In this round I will post definitions and my opening statement. I will extend on the argument in the next round.

Definitions:
Prefect - in some schools, a senior student authorized to enforce discipline.
Peer Pressure - influence from members of one's peer group.
Popularity - the state or condition of being liked, admired, or supported by many people.
Discipline - the practice of training people to obey rules or a code of behavior, using punishment to correct disobedience.

Opening Statement:

Students should not be able to pick the prefects in a school. This can be a very dramatic and bad change to the order of discipline in schools. The choice of prefect votes can be influenced by peer pressure, popularity, and the want to not be caught or get in trouble. This can easily influence and shift power in schools.

I give the floor to my opponent. Lets have a good debate.
