Central thesis: school uniform costs should be subsidised/reimbursed in cases where students not changing schools. Example paragraph Whilst it is made of quality fabrics and supports local small and medium enterprise, the uniform is an expensive purchase for most Mongolian families. Not only will students only get 1-2 years of wear out of it, but at 100,000 tugrik, the uniform costs XX% of the average monthly wage. As a country with a young population, rising rental prices and with 30% of the population living below the poverty line, many families are already under a lot of financial pressure. To demand that families buy a completely new uniform discriminates against financially-disadvantaged – and large – families. A subsidy scheme must be introduced so that both families and small businesses are supported.
Q: What shall we argue? Argument / point-of-view: Each group produces a ‘TEEL’ paragraph The class produces an introduction and conclusion together
