Wearing uniforms to school will be the best decision you could ever make as a parent for your child. There have been debates on why students should or shouldn’t wear uniforms.

Some students would skip school because they didn’t have the latest shoes or clothes. Skipping school meant their academics dropped and they failed the class. This is something I witness for myself while going to Centennial Middle School. There will be some people who may disagree with me that students should wear uniforms in...
