Debate Activity:

Should Uniforms be mandatory in all


Western Quebec Schools?
PROS

CONS

YES TO UNIFORMS
I believe that uniforms should be mandatory
in all Western Quebec Schools. Firstly,
uniforms are a much more economical choice.
As a result, uniforms can reduce the amount
families spend on clothes, allowing more
money for other things. Equally important,
uniforms can serve as an equalizer amoung
students. For example, instances of bullying
and classism may decrease as a result of
instating uniforms. In conclusion, instating
uniforms in all Western Quebec Schools is the
economical and equal choice for students.

NO to UNIFORMS!
