Years ago I would argue that wearing school uniforms infringes on freedom of self- expression and individuality however now that I?m older I support the wearing of school uniforms in public school at the elementary, middle and also high-school levels. School uniforms may not solve the problem of violence or disruptive behavior in the public schools, but it is a step in the right direction. The implementation of uniforms can promote good order and discipline, communicate respect, reduce the competition/envy of brand-name clothing, and provide a serious learning environment.
Peer pressure in school can be overwhelming. At times peer pressure can entice students to do things they may not normally do. Keeping with “In-Style” clothing and accessories at school can be emotionally taxing to students and expensive to the parents. These types of problems sometimes overshadow the importance of academics in public schools. No one ever wants to be ridiculed for what type of clothing he or she may wear to school. Some children who go to public schools may come from low-income families, which make them stand out amongst their peers. School uniforms can help minimize some of these problems. They help decrease the destructive competition among students
