It allows you to show that you see and appreciate good reasoning on the part of the opposition. You recognize how the other side is valid,

but then you prove the superiority of your position. The opposition might be right, but you are more right. Why is a concession important? Remember that a concession is not a form of weakness. In fact, a concession is a strength as it finds common ground with your opponent

and establishes your ethical appeal: you are a reasonable person willing to listen to/ acknowledge that there are more sides to an issue than yours. Example1: Where is the Concession? Some people say that standardized testing is good because it provides a way of measuring ALL students using
