Alright, lads n' lassies, it's time for the June Debate! Please, please make sure that you are familiar with Collapse ) before you start posting! The last few debates, we've had a ton of comments, but not all of them got points. Make sure that you get it done right the first time. Especially the one about deleting and reposting a comment if you forget to sign it. Are we ready? Are we?!

Alright then. Let's go!

Should Hogwarts stop sorting students into different houses in order to obtain unity?

House pride runs deep in the hearts and souls of the students of Hogwarts. The house you are sorted into means the world to you- it is who you are, who you've been, and even who you will become. It reads into your character and your very being, pushing you into a world with people simular to you. Many people see it's benefits: one would easily find friends they could level with, and people with interests like their own. But, on the other side of the coin lies a world where people are looked down upon, students form a deeply embedded hatred for one another, and assumptions are made.. all because of the house they are placed into.

The decision rests in your hands. Should Hogwarts stop sorting students into different houses to obtain unity amongst the students, or should they see the many benefits of grouping students together by like personalities and interests?

For Houses: Slytherin and Ravenclaw
Against Houses: Gryffindor and Hufflepuff
