Uniforms by Abby age 12


So how do you feel about school uniforms? Some think that uniforms are helpful in more ways than one. Supporters of the school uniform think that uniforms prevent bullying. They think that if everyone wears the same thing, than nobody would be made fun of because of what they wear. When these supporters say that, they could be right but that doesn’t mean that under all circumstances that someone would be teased. A slightly less significant argument is that children that go to schools that wear uniforms say that it is easier in the morning to pick out what they would be wearing.

On the other hand, people like me who think uniforms are unnecessary have a much more different opinion. We think that uniforms are a restriction for kids who like to express themselves. Me and many other kids like to express their personalities through different types of clothing, and many of us like to sport certain types of styles that we like. I personally think that bullying is a problem that shouldn’t be associated with what types of fashions kids wear, because someone bullying someone for their clothing is probably a bully even when it doesn’t have anything to do with clothes. So what do you think? Are school uniforms necessary or irrelevant?
