Many people say that uniforms are a good thing because of the fact that everyone looks the same, people will not compare each other, and think that someone has more money or better clothes than someone else. But if everyone is wearing the same thing, then wouldn't it be easier to compare people? Say there were two girls, both wearing khakis and a white collared shirt. What if one girl didn't look as good in the pants as the other girl. It would be easier for someone to say, "That girl looks terrible in those pants" because they are looking at how much better they look on the other girl. And say that that girl gets bullied because of how she looks in those pants. She probably wouldn't have worn those pants if she was given a choice because she was probably aware of how they looked on her. Most likely she has lots of clothes that look good on her, but the uniform isn't one of them. I think that bullying is inevitable in schools today. So if uniforms would only hurt the situation, then why bother?

Hi there, thanks for starting this debate!

So, let me start with....why doesn't anyone ever think about what the kids want? Blah blah blah, bullying and safety, stuff like that. But then, if they're all wearing uniforms, doesn't that make them all look like clones? Also, the uniforms will cost money, and they'll have to wash them often. Their parents won't get away from buying regular clothes either- no kid will want to wear their school uniform on the weekend or during summer.

So, good luck =)!

Major oops! I did the wrong side!

So let me restart. Uniforms show school spirit, and if you don't like your school because it has uniforms, than go to a different one!
Also, YOU will not be the one taking care of the payment. The school covers that, and the kids can express their individuality by doing stuff with their hair.

So, good luck! =)

Why do you think that about half the schools in the world are required to wear uniforms?

Thanks for debating with me :)
