Pro

i think that no matter what school you go to kids should have the choice to wear whatever they want. I think that it helps them express themselves
kenito001

Con

Freedom of expression is limited by private educational institutions. Saying that all students have the inherent right to dress as they wish, within reason, under the 1st Amendment, violates the rights of that private institution to function freely.

To defend the actual concept of uniforms at private schools, uniforms allow students to readily dress within the rules without having to question daily attire within the already restricted dress codes.

Private schools do as they wish. If free dress is one's criteria for attending a private school and said school does not match that criteria, then the student should reconsider their enrollment decision.

I really hope you went to a school with a uniform dress code. Otherwise, you really have no frame of reference to base your argument.
I've gone to Catholic school my entire life and wasn't able to wear my choice of clothing until college, and I can assure you, students have no shortage of ways to express themselves. Further, the dress code supplements the superior discipline of private schools, which is a large part of ways in which private schools are better than public.
