Hey Inquisitive writers! Today I am collaborating with Wormal with a debatable topic: should school uniforms be worn? We will both be talking about our opinions, so be sure to check out her post ,too!
Should school uniforms be worn? My short answer would be no. I honestly think there are a lot of reasons why schools shouldn’t make their students wear uniforms.
1: Students can’t be unique
The students wearing the same uniform promotes sameness, essentially. This can be damaging to students in middle school and high school because they are trying to figure out who they are now, and they should be allowed to wear what they want to express that.
2: The outfit can be uncomfortable
Apart from other issues, the outfit can simply contain a material that can be uncomfortable, or possibly a pupil could be allergic to. This would distract from learning in school, which is the opposite of what the outfit is “suppose to do”
3: Students should have their own decision in their clothing
I wouldn’t want the school or the government making a choice in my clothing. It’s just not right. It’s kind of like a choice between freedom and conformity, in a way.
Do you still think that students can be unique even when wearing school uniforms? Sure, they can add accessories to their outfit, but anything else? No, they still have to wear that same outfit to school, like everyone else. It’s true that you can’t express yourself as much with a uniform than if you wore clothes that you preferred.
Also, you can’t really argue about some students not being uncomfortable in their uniform. This will distract them from doing performing their best in school, I know it would distract me.
Lastly, students aren’t deciding on what they are wearing. The school/government is. Unless it was voted on, it wasn’t their choice to a) Get the outfits and b) Choose the outfit that they are going to wear.
Should schools force uniforms on their students? If you were/are a student, how would you feel if this happened to you? Or has it already? Don’t forget to check out Wormal’s post ,too!
