School Uniforms shouldn't be banned.
In the word “uniform”, uni- means “one”, and school uniforms show that “we are one”. A lot of students disagree with the school uniforms because they think they can’t show their personality and that they will not have freedom of speech and expression. They also say as long as they follow the dress codes, the uniforms should not be mandatory. But, do uniforms really have anything to do with showing their personality? Also, do students follow the dress codes that their school provided? If they cannot take the freedom the school gave them, they should not have freedom. Back in 1980-90s, they didn't have mandatory school uniforms and states of United States didn't force them to follow the dress codes nor have the dress codes. However, students started disobeying, making rules even more strict. It would be the students themselves who made the uniforms mandatory. Uniforms should be mandatory for all the states in America. School uniforms can help students to focus on their studies and curb the school violence.
