Why Uniforms are a Good Thing!

By October 9, 2006

Follow me on:

One of the first things you notice about most private schools is that the students are wearing uniforms. The uniform is often euphemistically referred to as a dress code. Still, it amounts to the same thing, namely, that the students dress in a uniform manner. Well, enough puns! What are the advantages of uniforms? Do they infringe on individual freedoms and rights? Not at all.

Read Why We Love Uniforms. It's a fairly typical defence, er, explanation, of uniforms. School Uniforms offers a look at the pros and cons of the issue from the public school vantage point. Want to learn more about private schools? Read What Are The Questions Parents Ask Most Often?

Uniforms are pointless because they just give us something to rebel against.

I think uniforms are needed in every school because clothes should not be the way the students express theirselves, they should express theirselves and feelings with their actions and personality, they just have to be their own selves. Equality is the most imortant factor feeling equal, it mentaly helps all students. All students have to do is be a student thats it…

I think school uniforms are good because there are always the kids getting picked on by other kids because they shop @ wal mart instead of the mall and its not right. Another thing im sure there are girls mostly out there that when people do that it breaks down there self asteem:(

Uniforms are the best! They are just so easy to deal with and you don’t have to worry about not being “fashionable”.
