While finding Pros and Cons about school uniforms, I have learned that school uniforms may decrease the rate of bullying. Also, school uniforms may help those that can’t afford school uniforms. I have found some pros and cons about wearing school uniforms from a couple of articles including; https://www.greatschools.org/gk/articles/school-uniforms/ and https://www.newyorker.com/culture/culture-desk/the-unquestioned-goodness-of-school-uniforms. These articles are about why school uniforms may help those who go to school today. They talk about how uniforms may decrease problems at school that we have in our world today.

In the article https://www.greatschools.org/gk/articles/school-uniforms/, this was about how it would affect students negatively. Although, it talked about how uniforms could be beneficial. It is said that uniforms may encourage discipline and it will help schools identify intruders in the school. This may also improve attendance according to this article. Also, they talk about how uniforms may affect schools due to the fact that it may violate students right to freedom of expression. As well as, the difficulty to enforce uniforms in public schools.

https://www.newyorker.com/culture/culture-desk/the-unquestioned-goodness-of-school-uniforms In this article, I man is talking about his daughter and her school uniforms. He mostly talks about how school uniforms will help those that don’t have much money and those that aren’t that successful. Also talks about the different styles that the school provides such as skirts shirts dresses and even athletic clothing.

I think you make some really good points, but personally I don’t care about uniforms anymore. I’ve just gotten used to them at this point. But the advantages of them aren’t just to help everyone look the same or help stop bullying, but it’s nice to have them. Instead of sitting in front of your closest picking out an outfit for 10-20 minutes every morning you can just put on your uniform and only worry about your hair. Its more about the simplicity rather than all the other stuff.
