I will be taking the side of Pro, I think that students should not have to wear school uniforms. The average annual cost to parents for uniforms is $249. Uniforms are so expensive that kids can't have their right to a free education. Also, many think that bullying is reduced when students are forced to wear school uniforms, BUT. When students wear similar clothing they compare how their bodies look like in the clothing. This can result in low self esteem issues and bullying. Not to mention that when focusing on uniforms schools don't focus on finding genuine solutions to problems in education.
I will be taking the side of Con, I think that there is a necessity for children to be familiar with uniform until they leave school because there need to be familiar with not having their own way and having themselves dictate what they wear, at schools the teachers may have to take time to make the pupils get used to that system. However to be a civil servant or many other jobs, you must wear uniform, and if a young person goes to a job without the correct uniform or does not think that it is a big deal, the manager of the facility will simply just not have the tolerance to deal with it. Remember, young people will NEVER come up against people as tolerant as teachers for the rest of their lives.
Well, considering you forfeited, I will look a point you made in the last argument, that people have to pay $249 ("165.57), this really does not effect people's economic stance, because this is exactly what the child benefit is for, to pay for child welfare, e.g. uniform and food. It would be nice if you made an argument this time.
