Posted on Updated on

There has been evidence pointing to the fact that uniforms lessen the socio-economic issues and create a more equal environment in schools. Many schools have adopted this practice with great success, however, many students feel it prevents their freedom of expression.

    School Uniforms
    Many people believe that school uniforms prevent gangs and create equality in schools. They think that uniforms are the solution to school issues. I think uniforms are a bad idea.
    One reason uniforms are a bad idea, is because of religious reasons. Some people must wear certain items according to culture. If that’s the case they can’t wear uniforms.
    Another reason uniforms are a bad idea, is they are too expensive for some people to get for their kids. Some uniforms can range up to 100$ and some people may not be able to afford 2 sets of clothes, one for school, one for home.
    The third reason uniforms are a bad idea, they may not be weather appropriate. Uniforms are not meant for cold places like Thunder Bay. It would make no sense to wear that in Thunder Bay or in a winter Climate what if you had to wear a skirt.
    The last reason uniforms are a bad idea, is because disability or disorders. It’s a bad idea because if someone is in a wheel chair the cannot get dressed by themselves. They could get hurt because they have to sit all day and jeans are not good for siting all day.
    As you can see for the above augments above that uniforms are a bad idea for schools.

    Many people believe that school uniforms prevent gangs and create equality in schools. They think that uniforms are the solution to all school issues. I think that uniforms are a bad idea.

    One reason why I think that they are a bad idea is for religious reasons. People can’t wear uniforms because they have to wear a curtain type of clothes.

    Another reason why is they aren’t weather appropriate. What if you’re wearing pants and it’s super-hot out you should wear shorts in the summer and pants in the winter. Therefore, uniforms aren’t always reasonable.

    Another reason uniforms are not a good idea is that they would get expensive. The uniforms are way too much money to pay for and the price would rise. Now people have to buy clothes for school and home.

    My last reason uniforms are bad is peer pressure from other schools. The other schools would make fun of us because they think that they have better uniforms then us or don’t have to wear them.

    As you can see uniforms are not the answer.

    Expensive. If you go to a store and find a uniform it cost like 100$ and you don’t have that much money to buy it.
    If white isn’t your color. If you find a cheap uniform and its white and you don’t like white and you try to find another one.
    Weather appropriate. Winter t-shirts or shorts doesn’t make sense.
    Freedom of choice. Students, kids need to be able to make choices. Learn right from wrong.

    Many people believe uniforms prevent gangs and create equity in school. Think that uniforms are the solution to all school issues. I think that uniforms are bad.1 reason why they are bad is prevents gangs because people will start asking kids’ to join their gangs and then it will start teaching kids to do bad stuff and kill people kids’ and they will kill any one and they will be shooting guns’ and stuff like weapons and Valeant’s.

    Next to much money if the clothes were 20 dollars some kids can’t afford stuff that much some can’t afford anything or they have no plays to live and some people are broke. third freedom to make choices kids should be able to make their own choices what they want to wear and what they like to wear not any buddy else choice what they want to wear just the kids pick their own choices of what they want to wear so they would be happy what they can wear.

    Last pear presser’s agent’s other schools if kids wear uniforms kids from other schools would laugh and teas and bully the kids and you could upset them especial little ones and that’s called making fun of people. I think uniforms are bad.

    Many people believe that school uniforms prevent gangs and create equality in schools. They think that uniforms are the solution to all school issues. I think that I think that uniforms are bad idea in school.

    Religious reasons some people can’t for cultural or religious reasons.
    Kids need to be able to express themselves. For instance, kids like color they like to look cool and maybe kids want to wear their new clothes went to buy new clothes at the clothes shop. Maybe kids want to wear their new clothes to school.

    Maybe white isn’t your color or you don’t like skirts white is usually the color of a uniform.
    Style is important and shows our uniqueness because kids want to wear their clothes because it’s shows who they are.

    My conclusion is that uniforms are bad idea in school.

    Many people believe that school uniforms prevent gangs and create equality in schools. They think that uniforms are the solution to all school issues. I believe that uniform can’t solve school issues.

    One reason I think they are bad is because of religious reasons. Some people can’t wear uniforms in other places. For example, some schools in other countries don’t allow uniforms because it’s their religion that prevents it.

    Another reason is that some uniforms are too expensive for some people to buy. Some uniforms range past fifty dollars. So some people in the world can’t buy them.

    Another argument is that some uniforms aren’t weather appropriate. For example, in places that are hot you need to wear hot uniforms or in cold weather you need to wear cold uniforms.

    Also kids need to practice making good choices by picking out your own clothes Making your own decisions will help you follow your own path in life, and will help you make your dreams come true.

    As you can see from my arguments, uniforms are a bad idea in my opinion.

    Many people believe that school uniforms prevent gangs and create equality in schools. They think that uniforms are the solution to all school issues. I think uniforms are a bad idea.
    One reason I think they are bad is that kids want to show who they are or express them self’s. If they don’t, they will be like clones or be all the same. You can’t wear what you want to wear that is not good
    Another reason is maybe if a kid needs to wear something that is suppose to be for religious reason, then if you have to wear a uniform, you can’t wear it.
    Also, if it is cold or hot at school and you are wearing a uniform, then you can’t take it off at school.it may not be appropriate to the weather
    And my last reason is that maybe white isn’t your colour or the skirt is too short .Then you can’t change the colour you cant make the skirt more longer and you can’t change anything so it’s better to wear some thing more comfortable.

    As you can see from my arguments , uniforms are a bad idea.

    Many people believe that uniforms prevent gangs and create equality. I believe that uniforms are bad.

    One of the other reasons there bad is for religious reasons. Some people can’t where them for cultural or religious reasons.

    Another one of my reasons is it is expensive. Some families can’t afford uniforms because some uniforms are dressy, and dressy cloths cost more money than normal cloths.

    Also one of my other reasons is some uniforms are not weather appropriate. In Australia students have to wear long sleeves and pants, and in Australia it is really hot.

    My last reason is some kids won’t be able to finish their homework. Because some uniforms could be uncomfortable or itchy.

    As you can see from the above arguments uniforms are a bad idea for schools.
