Students should not be obliged to wear school uniforms. People may say that it deters bullying because everyone clad in the same outfit makes them equal. Why do we need to force children to wear the same clothes to promote equality? Everyone is a unique individual and students should have the right to express their personality through their choice of clothing. That in itself will teach kids to tolerate and accept one another regardless of how we dress, and embrace one another's unique differences.

Students should be obliged to wear uniforms. The proposition asked the question why do we force students to wear the same clothes to promote equality? and my answer is simple. As alluded to by the proposition uniform is a detergent for bullying. Although my counter part is guilty of a miss conception of society I certainly am not. Within our society we must look at the way people are judged women, homosexuals the poor and how these differences can result in discrimination; school uniform is a solution to this problem. What school uniform is not saying is that being yourself is not okay, the message is in fact more important than this. What it is saying is that we must protect those who are most vulnerable within our society and that hopefully we can instill the values of equality upon all students. Surely the proposition would agree that the if school uniform were not apparent then the divide between these groups would be larger and the amount of discrimination would increase!

No on should be forced to do anything. But besides the fact that kids can't wear their favorite t-shirt to school and show their friends there is nothing wrong with uniforms. So what if you have to wear a hideous color for a few year? The good thing is you always match!

Individuality is one of America's greatest attributes. If we restrict the ability to choose something as simple as clothing, how long will it take to restrict more aspects of school. And if a kid wants to represent her school she can choose to wear school colors. She should not be forced to.

I think that school uniforms are useful. Not because it prevents bullying but because it is a great way for kids to represent their schools. Plus, if those kids grow up and decide to enroll in the military, they will be forced to wear uniforms and it is great practice. I see where you are coming from but there are other ways for you to express yourself other than the clothes you wear. Besides that I don`t really see anything wrong with uniforms.
