If you drink alcohol and tell your children not to drink to you thing they will take you seriously, its the same thing with teachers and learners.

Con

Neither the teachers nor the students should wear uniforms. It restricts freedom, promotes conformity over individualism, and neither stop bullying or improve test scores(or any other success metric).

Pro

Imagine that a class is sitting at their desks waiting for their class to begin when their teacher walks in wearing old sweatpants and a stained tank-top. Would you imagine that those students would listen to the teacher or take the teacher seriously?. If a teacher is dressed like a student, a student will treat the teacher like one. Vice versa, if a teacher is dressed like a grown up or an authority figure, a student will treat them like one. A student is more likely to listen to a teacher who is wearing a professional-like outfit than a teacher who is dressed sloppy.

No, I do think there should be a dress code. No mistake. But a uniform would mean all the male teachers dressed the same, and vice versa for the female teachers. These are professionals, so they absolutely should maintain an air of professionalism, but uniforms wouldn't be in any way helpful. As far as for students, if a teacher is judging them on their fashion choices, that is a whole separate issue. But some sort of dress code should apply. Like, no ripped clothes, no underwear showing, etc.

You said it yourself Teachers are regarded as professionals, so they in no way must have a problem showing it. restricting certain dress code's will not help the situation they must have a specific dress code in which they can be identified and given the proper respect they deserve. Foe instance when people see a policeman they get frightened because of what he/she has on, that's the type of authority teachers most use in class rooms.
