There should be uniforms in schools because they are cheaper than everyday clothes, they create a school spirit, they make every student equal in a sense and they look professional.

I would challenge the claim that school uniforms are cheaper than regular clothes. Regular clothes can vary in price a great deal. the fact that you can buy them for only a few dollars at Goodwill or garage sales (or various other venues) would contridict this claim. A link to support it would be appreicated.

School uniforms are not needed because.

1) they have no direct effect on grades. Clothes will not make you smarter, and only a simple dress code, not uniforms are needed to combat distractions of revealing clothes. Remember, correlation does not equal causation.

2) they cost families more money, since kids would not be expected to wear their school uniforms ourside of school. So they would need 1 set of clothes for school, and another set for after school and weekends. That is additional clothe costs, and washing costs.

3) Strict uniforms limit individuality and personal growth. While a limit on clothes is ultimately good, going this far to the extreme is not helpful to anyone.

The 10 minutes is almost up, so I will pass it back to my opponent for their arguments.

Okay, I thought this would be a fast paced back and forth, based on what we know off the tops of our heads, rather than something where we just pull what other people have said and done, but it seems that my opponent left.

Maybe my opponent will come back?
