Uniforms in Schools

Grotesque, Boring, and Unconfortable

Introduction

Are you or your kids wearing khakis, polo shirts, and unique logos? Or decking out in the newest shoes and star wars shirts? Personally, I think that public schools should not require uniform because cloths provide a way for kids to express themselves, kids often compare themselves in the same outfit, and most of all, uniforms can be very pricy.

We are all different, and uniforms takes that away!

Starting this argument, I think schools shouldn't require uniforms because regular cloths provide a way for kids to express themselves. For example, Kids wont be able to see what other kids enjoy (Example: Pokémon shirts). Kids wont be able to express themselves through clothing. Without clothing to express themselves with, they could end up trying a formidable hobby or something absurd to actualize individuality for themselves

Comparisons... My worst nightmare!

Ongoing,I think that schools should not require uniforms because kids often compare themselves in the same outfit. For example, if someone is tall, they could get made fun of if their pants were to short, and without uniforms, they could have worn something longer. a bulky person could made fun of if their cloths were tight, and without uniforms, they could have worn something more flowing and loose. 'If some girls have a body that is a plus sized body, a curvier body, a very tall body, or a very short body, they don't feel at their best," says body image expert, Robyn Silverman. Uniforms are sometimes catered to one or a few skin tones, which could create racism.

Why are they so pricey?

In spite of the fact that I think that schools shouldn't require uniform because they take away a way for kids to express themselves, and kids often compare themselves in the same outfit, I especially think that kids should not be required to were school uniform because they are often pricey. For example, the average school uniform cost about $249 at most. Uniforms tend to have unique logos which need to ordered and shipped (rather than buying it in person), which cost more. Only 1 in 4 schools in America have another way for kids who cannot afford the shipping cost of uniforms to buy them.

To Conclude...

Those were my reasons why schools shouldn't require uniforms. Some critics say that uniforms make schools seem proficient & sharp, or that normal cloths are a distraction. I personally think that uniforms make a school seem uptight, and the distracting clothing. Besides, Is it really worth it to take creativity away from the growing minds of America?
