I think students should wear uniforms to school for 3 reasons.

One, a lot of kids have the temptation to wear inappropriate clothing to school. They will do it. I repeat, they will do it.

Two, it saves you the stress of having to find clothes for school and getting in trouble for being late because you had to find clothes.

Three, kids won"t get bullied as often. Kids get made fun of because of how much their clothes cost, how they look, and whether it is "cool" or not.

What do you consider inappropriate clothing? Clothing which states their political views, their attitudes, or their personalities? Or clothing that, for example, reveals their midriff or back or exposes their legs? If the teen is comfortable wearing clothes like these but YOU are not, then it's your problem. Your fault. As an adult, you should not look at children in any way that would cause their cothing to make you uncomfortale. You may think it's ugly, of course, but the discomfort should not be present.

I have never encountered anyone who was late because they couldn't find clothes to wear. I and several people in my class wear the same clothes several days in a row, so long as the clothes are not dirtied. It's also quite easy to find clothes when you're under pressure; you care a little bit less.

Kids will still be bullied for the clothes they wear. Bullying happens outside of school as well. Kids may still bully other kids during school time about the clothes they wear in their free time. Rather than trying to avoid the problem by hiding it, children should be taught by their families, schools, and political figures not to bully or discriminate anyone for any reason. Many children simply copy what the adults do and think it's fine.

Uniform does prevent bullying but maybe we should try and work on bettering our children's attitudes instead of avoiding the problem by making everyone wear the same thing.
