Slang is a form of spoken identity so don't ban it!!!!!! Slang shouldn't be banned in schools because it is a form of identity for the children and teenagers who use slang. They use slang because they want to be individuals, without others telling them that they can't use their own from of informal language. Everyone adapts to their environment when they are speaking. As long as people speak formally to those who have more authority, their informal language with friends shouldn't be banned since it shows them as individuals

Slang, sure it is a form of speech. But it is not a proper way to use correct speech!!!!

What is (informal and casual language)? An everyday speech sick and wrong view of a language suited to common usage by different groups of people using the language. This definition is too general as it includes different (different versions of a language),secret codes and languages within languages that do not really count as (informal and casual language).
So will define (informal and casual language) as the language of the young people; that though is understood by older people, it is not employed by those who think of themselves as old because it is considered to be childish, immature and casual.
People argue that (informal and casual language) in the form of AIM language causes students to under-perform in English tests or exams because they do not always fight the habit/desire to use AIM shortenings (of a word). (informal and casual language) in the form of ghetto language is also filled with problems when it comes to these tests because, while fanciness are encouraged in these classes; including words that do not fit into a worldwide, universal and/or clean clear-cut English.

Teachers of school take their time to teach the students of a school of proper speech, grammar and punctuation. Although not all people can afford schooling, but everyone should have a basic understanding of the proper English language.

If people lose their identity, it is a way of causing bad behaviour. Many people adapt to the situation they are in depending on who they are talking, which is used by everyone in society. Adapting your speech to situation is natural such as in classrooms and interviews.

People like to be independent and not controlled, so banning slang would make children less independent than they would like to be. It is also based on conforming to be accepted a certain group of people so they don't feel like an outsider of that group.

at least be pro for this topic so someone would actually argue, no one thinks it should be banned, there is no way to control it.
