Should students have to wear uniforms? Ryland Mitchell

claim

No students should not have to wear uniforms because it makes everything harder because you have to go out and buy them and its just easier wearing the clothes you already have.

Expensive.

Uniforms, especially those that have color and style requirements for every part of the outfit, are not easy for many parents to afford.

uncreative

Students of all ages, especially those who are making the transition from childhood to adolescence, are naturally creative and yearn to express themselves in everything they do.

misleading

Although student bodies of schools with uniform requirements may appear orderly and controlled, they are not protected from the formation of cliques and gangs.

uniforms actually attract bullies.

If you thought that requiring all students to wear uniforms can lessen the chances of bullying, you are dead wrong! In fact, it can actually increase the incidence of bullying, especially in school districts where violence rates are soaring.A 1999 study conducted by experts from Texas Southern University showed that bullying incidents increased by as much as 12%, after the implementation of mandatory uniform wearing.

uniforms can be detrimental to adult development.

Imposing a school uniform requirement is degrades development.
