Con

If students have to wake up at 6am to go spend 8 hours sitting in a class cant they at least wear whatever they want?

The dress code is there for a reason. A major reason that the dress code exists is so that kids who are poorer, or can't spend money on big name brands, don't feel bad about not being able to do so. Even if the children go to an expensive private school, they could be there on a scholarship and if they are unable to purchase clothing from big name brands such as Nike or Under Armour, they may feel left out because people will easily realize that they do not have as much money as everyone else. While with a dress code, all this information can be kept confidential and people will not feel bad about their money situation.

Aside from that fact; if students were able to wear whatever they wanted they could wear "distracting" items of clothing. Such as skirts that are to short, or a shirt that exposes to much of their chest. Or they could wear simply nothing at all. Not only would that repel people from the school, but it would not be pleasant to others in the class room. It would also give the school a bad image.

Reasons for voting decision: Con chose to make this 1 round debate, and only put 1 line in. Pro clearly offered more in terms of argument, and Con didn't address any of those points because of how Con set the debate up. A clear win, it seems to me, to Pro. As always, happy to clarify this RFD.
