Over time, more schools are requiring students to wear uniforms. Teacher, parents and students have argued over whether or not it should be required. I have been required to wear a uniform for the past few years, however, I do know what it is like for it not to be mandatory.
Uniform has made mornings a lot easier for me. It is less stressful knowing what to wear the night before or when you’re running late. Uniforms save students a lot of time in the morning because they won’t waste time deciding what to wear. Schools that have uniforms have better attendance rates.
But, uniforms restrict the student’s freedom. Students won’t be able to express themselves. Not being able to express yourself limits the student’s creativity. The way you dress in the real world affects your future. However, it is also harder to enforce school uniforms in the upper grades, since some students dislike them. I speak from experience when this is said, because in one of my past schools, many students disliked uniforms. Students can express themselves through clothing, but having uniform restricts that.
In my opinion, both sides have pros and cons. It is up to you to decide.Tags: freedomschooluniforms
