OPENING STATEMENT

I strongly believe that uniforms should be banned from schools.

Firstly, uniforms restrict creativity and self-expression. Uniforms can not only affect children's mind as a child, but also when they grow up. For societies, governments, and businesses to grow creativity in necessary. School is here to prepare children to be adults. If they are taught to limit their self-expression, because they can't dress uniquely, then these things would not be any different than what they were centuries ago.

Secondly, uniforms are expensive! According to greatergreatereducation.com the average cost of uniforms are $250 in Washington D.C.

Other notes (common myths - disproved):
1. Though uniforms are thought to disguise social classes, students and teachers can still identify the "rich" and "poor" 95% of the time.
2. Uniforms do not necessarily decrease the cost of clothing (there are no studies).
3. Uniforms create, not demolish, problems between schools and parents.

Obviously, uniforms are a bad idea.

OPENING STATEMENT

I believe that uniforms are a great idea.

First, Uniforms are a great way to show school spirit. Wearing their school logo will also make students feel proud to represent their school. Second, many students worry about what they are going to wear in the morning, but with uniforms, they already know what they are going to wear. This is also helpful to younger students because it will help create a routine every morning. Third, many students are judged by how expensive their clothes are, or if it's the latest trend, but with uniforms, all the students are equal when it comes to clothes and fashion. This is why uniforms are obviously a great idea.
