A school uniform consists of a limited range of clothing, including footwear and headwear. It identifies students as belonging to a particular school. Schools usually expect students to wear the uniform during school hours, while traveling to and from school, and when engaged in school activities out of school hours. One of the chief benefits of school uniforms, say proponents, is that they make schools safer. Uniforms are said to reduce gang influence, minimize violence by reducing some sources of conflict, and help to identify trespassers. Parents benefit because they are no longer pressured to buy the latest fashions, and they spend less on their children's clothing. Having a uniform stops gang members from displaying their colours and garb. The schools also believe it helps stop violence and helps instill a sense of pride in the students. It also helps to break down the barriers between different socioeconomic groups. I feel we should keep to the uniform. It sets an example of the school. t is representation the community. It is easy to point out different people. Also there would be more fights/bully due to the lack of 'fashion'. "

I think that there are many pros and cons to having schooo uniforms. I, myself, think that we should have school uniforms. Some people say that you can't express yourself, but there are many other ways to express yourself other than your clothing. i also think that if you have a uniform you are judged on personality instead of clothing which i believe is improtant. There would be less bullying because you are all egual.

it makes the school appear more proper and it basically forces students to look deeper than on appearance therefore causing most cliques to disappear. the world today is based on looks, whether you going for an interview or simply to the store, you're being judge. wearing uniforms could possible start a revolution.

Students should wear school uniforms because it will cause less people to get made fun...
