Many schools go with a broad uniform look to help either education or benifical needs. Schools should not have school uniforms. Everyone says that uniforms make students equal which will cause less bulling but has anyone ever thought about people who are forced to wear certain items, such as a head scarf, to school. We all have a right to individuality, to make personal choices and to express our personality. Additionally, children may be laughed at by outsiders. Most kids absolutely hate uniforms.

When expressing yourself in as public a setting as a school, there is such a thing as too much. If you came to school in an outfit that was skimpy, revealing, and altogether inappropriate for a school setting, the school is within its right to tell you to change. Yes, there is such a thing as freedom of expression, but the school has a bit of control over that.

When you are in the school building, you're being put under their rules. If they have a dress code, you are expected to follow it. Uniforms are no different than a dress code, really.

If all schools had a dress code, there would be no bullying, because everyone would be adhering to the policies set by the area.

If the children hate uniforms, then that's their feeling. It shouldn't influence whether or not the uniforms stay or go. If the uniforms help promote a better learning environment in which people can go through the day without having to worry about being stopped and addressed about their clothing, the feelings of students should not matter.
