School uniforms should be compulsory for all students at all grade levels. There are many reasons,which justify this including discipline,discrimination and to give the students a sense of identity. If all students at a particular school didn't wear school uniforms,there would be discrimination between the financially advantaged people and the disadvantaged people.

P1. School uniforms won't help change discrimination
P2. School uniforms cost more for the average household
C. School uniforms are an impractical idea in modern society
No matter what you do people will still form cliques and pass judgement on others. If they aren't judging people for the clothes they are wearing then they will do it on many other factors such as weight, height, or hair color. Also one of your main arguments was that financially disadvantaged people would finally fit in with the general populace. But school uniforms would cost more then average clothes therefore not making the financially disadvantaged equal but rather making them repugnant to their classmates.

The wealthier people would tend to look down and shun the poorer people as it gives them a chance to flaunt their wealth. When students wear school uniforms, it shows the similarities between them, and not the differences. Each school has their own rule of law and based on that, students need to obey on that law and respect. When a student wears a uniform, it shows a sign of dignity and it means that student has confirmed the school expectations and that student feels that he/she belongs to that school.

I strongly believe that wearing a school uniform is crucial to the way children behave and also affects them academically. Most importantly, wearing a school uniform shows respect for the school, and gives children a sense of belonging. We wear school uniforms to show pride in our school. Taking our identity away would mean that we could come from any school, any state, and in any country, making school uniforms an important and crucial part of our school life. Additionally, being identifiable from a particular school reduces the opportunity for students to skip school or get into trouble on the way to and from school. If students wore normal clothes they may be mistaken for adults and could do things they shouldn't, such as smoking or taking the day off.
