- So students spend less time in the morning thinking about what to wear.
- So students don't have holes in their pants or tops.
- So students (particulary girls) don't show too much skin.
- So students can wear their school colors (most schools have to wear their school colors).
- So students can look somewhat professional.
- Less fortunate students wear the same clothes as fortunate students
- If a dangerous out-sider were to come in to the school he/she would be easily identified
- It removes allot of the girl distraction for boys
______________DO YOU REALLY NEED ME TO GO ON?!?!?!?!?___________
Let's say this boy give up his seat to an old lady on his way home from school and all the commuters on the bus saw his act of consideration and civic-mindedness. The people would know his school teaches the students correctly and is a good school sine his actions show. Hence I feel that we, as students, should wear uniforms.
Yes, kids should wear uniforms. It saves money and there is not much bullying. People that don't have much money like them better because their kids don't get made fun of because of their clothes. I like uniforms because It's easier to pick out clothes in the morning. I love uniforms(unicorns!!!!)
Kids should wear uniforms for multiple reasons. One reason is that this puts kids on an equal playing field. Kids who may not have much money will stand out. This also reduces sex appeal. In general, these uniforms are rather conservative, allowing kids to focus on work, not body parts.
You guys think you can wear whatever you want but you kids should know that uniforms represent the school. Casual clothing can make other schools think that this school is informal, inappropriate and adults can think poorly of you, too. School uniforms are not as expensive as your Xbox or your PS3 so think about that. Plus the clothing that you wear is more expensive than uniforms. Think before you say anything. I don't have what you have, I was born with no technology in my house and this computer is from the school. They just let me borrow it. You with "everything" kids, should be formal, obey and learn that uniform is a representation of your school.
Yes, kids should have to wear uniforms. You can reduce the amount of bullying that is being done this way. The poor student wouldn't have to worry about being picked on because his or her parents can't afford the name brand clothes that other kids are wearing. It would reduce a lot of the school problems. Boys would concentrate better on school work instead of what the girls are wearing and how attractive they are trying to be.
There is so much pressure on children to have clothing that is popular. Uniforms will take some pressure off of children, as well as save money for parents on buying loads of different clothes for their children. Uniforms will also cut down on unwanted teen pregnancies as young girls will not be wearing seductive clothing.
Uniforms make it easier on the parents in the long run. Although shopping for school clothes is fun for kids, parents on a limited income often struggle when it comes to that time of year. Uniforms take the stress out of the equation. Everyone looks the same at school, and nobody is competing to be something more than what they are, everyone can focus on school and not on looks or the latest fashion trend.
Wearing uniforms in school for children solves a variety of issues. First, it will minimize one area of bullying that children are exposed to. In addition, it removes the constant one-upmanship that occurs in schools. Individuality in school should be directed toward the results and performance in a subject, not based on either what a parent can afford or what a child chooses to wear.
Children should wear uniforms mainly because it will cut down on some of the bullying and shame that some kids encounter when their parents cannot afford to buy them the "best" clothing. I remember as a kid, if you didn't wear name-brand clothing, you got picked on pretty badly. Also, uniforms will cut down on the cost of "back to school" clothing for parents.
I could go on FOREVER with my reasons and my argument.
~LIST OF WHY NOT~
-No spirit Days
-Picture Day would be boring
-Takes away freedom of choice
-Uniforms may be uncomfortable
-Same boring look EVERY day
-Depending on style, could be hot in summer and cold in winter
What information/research there is, including on those websites that provide evidence based research into those aspects of school that have the most impact on learning/performance, indicates that wearing a school uniform has little if any impact on this area of school. Not sure that there is more than anecdotal evidence to demonstrate an impact on behaviour. I just wonder why it is that every country in Europe, apart perhaps for Ireland, has not had uniform as a culture for decades, and yet perform as well, mostly better, than we do!! Perhaps they are more comfortable with the concept of children and young people being individuals and not 'standard industrial units'.
According to teacher Alastair Endersby
Uniforms requiring dress pants, skirts, ties and pressed button-up shirts can be uncomfortable for students. If students are focusing on adjusting their clothing and on their discomfort, their learning can be affected. Many uniforms may also not be appropriate for all seasons, such as skirts in cold winter months, instead of having a uniform a school might create a dress code. Generally a dress code is much less strict it just states rules of how you are to dress. But not having someone pick your outfit. But the case of a middle school in Napa, California they are required to wear solid colors and banned images or logos on clothes. But when a student wore socks with an animated character, Tiger friend of winnie-the-pooh she was sent to detention. The family sued the school for violating her freedom of speech.
Uniforms ultimately cost more.
Uniforms do not teach children how to deal with people who are different then themselves.school uniform is that uniforms will lessen children's individualism and creativity by not allowing them to choose their clothing as they please, but rather be in an "army" of students all looking exactly the same.
The school uniforms keep the children of from their creativity that are essential for creating ideas that might save their lives someday... Free clothes rule, down with the uniforms. Uniforms stinks Uniforms stinks Uniforms stinks Uniforms stinks Uniforms stinks Uniforms stinks Uniforms stinks Uniforms stinks Uniforms stinks Uniforms stinks Uniforms stinks Uniforms stinks
When you try to eliminate one problem by force another arises. By trying to make them equal by wearing uniforms you make them look at other ways to make fun of other children. Maybe their weight, hair, or skin color. Some of these cannot be changed and have a lasting effect on the emotional state of a child. If a child is picked on for wearing cheap clothes because his family can't afford them, he can grow up and but nice clothes but he cannot change his eye color. If you think you have solve bullying by make them dress the same you are wrong. They will turn to personal features to tease about. Personal features that they can't change will stress the child more.
I don't think that's necessary. What would be the point of it? There will always be a reason for children to bully one another. Putting them in a uniform isn't going to change anything. There's nothing that says a uniformed child is more well behaved than a non-uniformed child after all.
Kids need self expression we need to show who we are with how we dress. Plus if uniforms are a distraction. They are uncomphertable. A student can feel more at ease with there own clothes. Not a uniform. So I vote against it I think that it is a bad idea for students.

Because we lose our rights as citizens when we wear school uniforms. We should be free to wear what ever we want. If we wear school uniforms we have no feeling to represent who we are. It doesn't effect our grade in school it just proves where we go to school at. Its a waste of money and that is what I think of school uniform.
