Schools should have uniforms because it easier for the student in the morning. It takes less time to get ready because the student doesn't have to figure out what to wear. Also, parents save money on back to school clothes.

Con

School uniforms will also cost a lot of money, and they are not part of your everyday attire; they are extra clothes that the school expects the parents to pay for. Students will also not feel the freedom of wearing what they want to wear, and will not be able to become responsible for themselves.

Parents can still buy their children "everyday clothes" that they can wear after school. Parents can buy used uniforms through used book and clothing sales run by parents of children who have graduated. Parents don't have to spend hundreds of dollars at Donnelly's or other companies. Also depending on the school, the school may allow the children to be more expressive.

Con

Those uniforms that are used book sales are also very torn and worn out. Some of them may even be stained. The uniforms are also not the most appealing attire to go out in public with; let alone, they are uncomfortable. Teens should get to wear what they want and when they want to, and to be comfortable all the time.

Pro

Uniforms are held to a specific standard when they are given to the school for re-use, just as if you were donating clothes to the needy. Children will not receive uniforms that are stained or worn down, they have to be in moderate shape. Kids at pubic school wear spandex to school and ill fitting clothing that isn't appropriate to wear to school. If the school isn't strict with their dress code, then children will be able to dress more freely.

I'm in favor of uniforms. Brooke had a better argument, and Paul even forfeited!

I agreed to wear uniforms, because it actually takes very long time to think about what to wear in the morning, especially for girls. About the cost of uniforms, it does not spend too much money as the everyday clothes.
