Yes many students and few parents do not agree with public schools adoption a uniform. Students disagree because they feel that by having a school uniform policy you aren’t able to express who you are during school. They also feel that school is a place to learn not a place where you should be told what to wear. But this is where they are wrong school is a place to learn and be safe while doing this. For example because of the uniform policy taken place in Long Beach California system 56 elementary and 14 middle schools in the fall of 1994 , violence and discipline problems have decreased majorly (Portent). The reason why few parents disagree with the school uniform policy is because some uniforms range up to $100 or more for shoes, pants/shorts and, shits/jacket. But in many cases schools are willing to supply the student with this specific clothing they are required to have if it’s an issue for the parents. All public schools should have a uniform policy it would be a very practical thing to have in a school there are many positive things that come out of adopting a school uniform like violence , sexual assaults , gang member associates and , drug use have all went down majorly ever since uniforms have taken place in schools .


All public schools should have a uniform policy requiring a uniform. It creates a good learning environment for the kids to focus and participate in class.
