Uniforms Around the Nation
A Controvertial Issue
Developing your individuality during school is an expectation in the United States ("Four Reasons Public Schools Should Think Twice Before Instituting School Uniform Policies").
Uniforms would conceal a gang's identity, making it more difficult to prevent gang-related conflicts (Cruz 44).
Clothes are only one part of expressing yourself to other people. Students can be expressive through other scenarios and ideas. Uniforms promote the idea that everyone is the same while at school. Uniforms are preventing students from knowing and showing which students are from which gangs. This makes it easier to prevent conflicts from happening while on school campuses.
