School uniforms are becoming a popular trend amongst schools. Students and even most parents don’t agree with the enforcement with school uniforms. In this paper I will present the argument towards school uniforms. Yes, uniforms limit what the students have to choose to wear to school every day, but it doesn’t limit them from learning. Requiring school uniforms eliminates the chances of bullying. Bullies usually pick on kids based on what they wear. But what happens when they are wearing the same thing. It leaves less room to get picked on. Some kids are very specific about what they are comfortable wearing. Some are sensitive to certain materials while others are just opposed to restrictive clothing. Having uniforms in schools also erase the defined line of the social classes. Everyone would be wearing the same brand of clothes from the same stores. Nobody would be able to determine what social class a person is in just by looking at their clothes. Some children are also uncomfortable wearing certain styles of clothing. Many girls, for example do not like to wear skirts or dresses, which some uniforms require. But schools that require uniforms look more formal and well put together. Schools with uniforms have a the students dressed nicely in the assigned uniform. Overall, school uniforms are a great thing to have. Even though this argument whether or not school uniforms violates the students right to self- expression will be never end. School uniforms are a positive thing, because they take away bullying opportunities, judging of social class and make the school look more professional.
