I think that school uniform can help to students to save theirs time, because you always know what you will wear the next day, and there is no need to lose you time at the morning for preparing new clothes.

For example when all students in the school will wear uniform, it will be more easier for teachers to identify who do not belong on the school, because sometimes children from another schools or teenagers, who have bad behavior, enter to the schools and starts to steal mobile phones, bags, money, books and etc.

I don't believe clothes are the only factor, or even a major factor, in what makes kids feel better or worse than others.

Also, what if the uniform is uncomfortable, wouldn't a student feel better if they could choose to where more comfortable clothing.

school uniform is definetely good idea, and first of all because it strengthens student's sense of discipline, which in my opinion is the most important thing students should learn in schools. Schools should provide all students with uniform by themselves (and obviously get paid for that) because from my personal experience, tasking students to get uniform SOMEWHERE THERE, ON SOMETHAT street would not get to any good.

Discipline is not the job of scholls. it is the job of parents. Too often nowadays schools must take the place of the parents and adding to that just makes the situation worth. Children learn discipline not by being controled by rules etc but by the example of people they look up to. it is just silly to think kids behavior improves etc when wearing uniforms!

I agree entirely, schools are to large and impersonal to properly raise a child. They can try all they like but the reality is that children need to be raised in smaller groups, so that each one can get the attention it requires.

Side: bad idea

A study i read shows that students whose parents spoke with them about the dangers of alchoal were less likely to binge drink when the go off to college compared to the students who were warned by the schools instead. Parents have a greater impact in their child's life than any school assembly could ever accomplish.

I know of a high school near where i live that does have a uniform policy, but it's drug user's population is no different if not worse than mine which doesn't use uniforms.

Watch as the Republican contradicts his or her own beliefs. That's SOCIALISM. Where would you get the money for the schools to pay for these uniforms? Here's a clue, it rhymes with shmaxes, which are obviously socialist, or so the Republican party and Fox News like to argue and twist. School uniforms are an awful idea. They deprive individuals of creativity and personal freedom. Every kid from elementary school through high school is searching for his or her identity. Clothing is culture and culture is identity. Depriving one of their identity is what Hitler tried to do. So Aselyaj, hail Hitler?

How does it strengthen their sense of discipline?

You claim this but provide no rational or support. In fact in my experience seeing kids in uniforms has given the opposite sense. They do everything they can to deviate from tat uniform.

Some people say that by wearing unoforms they cannot express themselves. In my opinion schools are not intended for that kind of self-expression. If you want to express yourself then do it outside the school.

Schools are intended for education. And pupils should think about studying but not about clothes. That is why a lot of schools have uniforms.

I am studying in university now, and we don't have uniform here but I would wear it with a great pleasure, if it was

There are several reasons to support uniforms in public schools. First of all, uniforms act as a leveler, allowing all students from the most different backgrounds to walk on common ground. Also, wearing a school uniform helps for all students instill a sense of belonging and increases self-esteem. I look forward to your comments. Support me and read an article

Wrong! At least here in America. Self-esteem is not garnered by the clothes we wear. That is part of the problem with society. We base our judgements on silly things like clothing. School uniforms do not make everyone equal, some may not clean there uniforms as often as others do. They will still be picked on for the condition of said uniform. Kids will also find other reasons to discriminate against others. As I have stated on this thread numerous times. Hair style, braces, backpack, apparent intelligence or lack therof, financial situation etc will all still become targets of other students. Also it does not make children more disciplined ever see a child wearing a suit at a wedding etc.? I was a rebellious student is school and it would have been 3 times worse if I was forced to wear a uniform!

In my experience, I went to two different schools. The first school was not the form, the second is. I went to another school, that is 2, only because of lack of form. Absence of form in the first school negatively affect my studies. I know the difference and I can confidently say that.

Among the reasons why school uniforms are a good idea, the most strongly stated one is that they promote equality. Distinctions made on the basis of economic status are reduced. With everyone dressed alike, there is a hope that kids will judge others based on character instead of the clothes they wear.

School uniforms can save parents a lot of money as they then only need to buy their kids casual clothes to wear on the weekends.It prepares children for working life where they often need to wear uniforms, or at the least dress conservatively or follow a dress code. Also, the purpose of attending school is to learn, and anything (such as clothes) that take away from that goal, needs to be discouraged.

uniforms would not make a child's socio-economic status irrelevent, they would make it more obvious, because if everyone would wear the same thing, the tiny differnces that inevitably emerge would become harder to overlook, due to smaller contrast. Not only that, but that's not even a major problem at schools, not even highschools, the biggest reasons for harassment at schools are homophobia, personal habits and just plain boredom.

I believe that school uniforms are a really good idea, because every student will be equal and feel just like other students.

I think that school uniforms can help students to save their time, because you will always know what you will wear the next day.

If all students in the school wear school uniform, it will be easier for teachers to identify who belongs to the school, because sometimes bad people enter schools to steal mobile phones, bags and stuff like that.

I agree with you. You presented a very accurate and important arguments that can persuade others. Some feel wearing a school uniform helps build school spirit. It instills a sense of belonging. As a Beach Boys said, "Be true to your school." Schools report an increase in school pride.

Side: Good idea

Also uniforms are great in security. It is easier for someone to sneek in the school if it has no uniform and in trips you don't have to ask and go through the register if you find a boy claiming to belong in the bus. You can basically easily tell if a child belongs in that school and that decreases the chances of getting lost or escaping.

Side: good idea

In my opinion, I think that all the students should wear uniforms for school.

The first reason is that with uniforms all the students will look better and orderly because it will look like all the students are clean and intelligent persons who are dedicated for their work in class. And maybe if they look like that, they can feel like that.

The second reason is that buying uniforms is cheaper that buying jeans and shirts for school and that is a benefit for the parents of the students that are in the school. Also the students won't have to worry about the clothes that they have to wear to school.

Another reason is that if they are out of school and the people want to know about what school that the student is going to, the people can know easily if the student is wearing a specific uniform. If a student from that school does something bad, the people from other places can know if the student is from a specific school.

I think that we have to support that the students should wear uniforms in school.

So you support uniforms because it makes people look smart? So do glasses. Do you think all students should wear those as well? It is rediculous to teach kids if you look good then you should feel good. this is the narsisistic crap that has permiated our country. Kids should be taught to feel smart and good about themselves based them being themselves. Intelligence should not be garnered from the clothes one wears! As for knowing what school a child goes to. That is noones business and in fact can be dangerous. We live in a world of preators and knowing what school a child goes to can be just what a predator needs to harm a child. Waiting outside for them etc.

I do not agree. This is all nonsense. First I would argue that students should wear uniforms. If we want to teach children to look smart, then we must start somewhere. So the introduction of school uniforms is the best option.

Why do you think that intelligence should not be taken from clothing? If you know the famous saying "Meet on clothes ....." you will support me because every self-respecting man should look good.

As for which school a child goes to. I mean, if the student will know the rules, he will be more disciplined and will not disgrace your school.

In my experience kids in uniform do everyhting they can to express themselves and it tends to make them far more rebellious than kids just wearing whatever. They do not not look neat or orderly.

As for cheaper etc., the kids shift emphasis to what they can change. They wear jewelry, shoes, socks, makeup etc to show who they are.

As for doing bad things and knowing what school they are from. They may do bad things just to show their disdain of the uniform. Also it is not that hard to guess where kids are from in times they would be wearing their uniform and what good would that do anyway?

I have worn a school uniform before. School uniforms aren't that bad! Think about when you get a job, you have to wear a uniform at a job even if it is a hat. Also school uniforms won't take away your personality. You can still express yourself in other ways. You don't have to wear something that can be found at a fashion show and wear it at school. School is a place of learning not a place for a fashion show. Like I said before, I have worn a school uniform before, back when I was in a private school. School uniforms are not ugly. So the question is, does it really matter if you wear a school uniform? The answer is NO. You can still express yourself, even if you wear a school uniform.

I am absolutely convinced that school uniform isnt so important to pupils. Because this modern time society need educated and skilled future workers and for them it is not the most goal their uniform. As far as I am concern I thint that the knowledge the most useful and important thing. Pupils can try more and more to be trustworthy and realiable. The government first of all look at amount of accumulated knowledge! The main task of the government educate and train a person that can reach a goal and can improve the culture or the economy on the top level*

School uniform disciplines the students. If you look at how our students dress up, you will be able faint. When each school has its own form, it unites the boys. They feel as a team.

In my opinion, the wearing of school uniforms

1. educates

2.distsiplins

3. instills children a sense of style and action.

The form provides equal opportunity for all parents

1. buy it

2. family budget

3. makes it possible to support low-income families.

With this in mind, Board of Education the Karaganda region recommended for departments of education to implement a school uniform with regard to the factors for children and parents.

Side: bad idea

Children are not people, they are children. If the parents who raise them and cater to their ids want to dress them up, they can; period. If the schools who let them congregate into groups, learn social mannerisms, and put up with them for free want to dress them up, they can; period.

They're a good idea. They promote equality by making sure every student has decent clothing to wear regardless of how much money their family has. They also teach students what type of clothing is appropriate for a workplace - which is what a school is, even if you're not making money by going.

They also reduce distraction - no more guys failing classes because they were too distracted by the lower back tattoo of the girl in front of them to listen to the teacher.

Not only are school uniforms a good idea but they can also prevent students from hiding weapons under their clothing.

School uniforms help to close the gap between socioeconomic classes by having every student wear the same outfit to school.

Students who require student uniforms might benefit from higher self-esteem because they do not have to worry about the latest fashion trends. Instead of worrying about wearing that popular new brand, students can focus on getting good grades.

Advocates of school uniforms claim that regulated attires decreases potential gang activity on school grounds. Uniforms prevent groups from forming based on attire, and they prevent students from hiding weapons underneath their clothing.

School uniforms help teachers, administrators and students to identify potential intruders. If everybody is required to wear a similar uniform, then people who do not belong to the school will stand out. This may prevent potential threats on the school.

Uniforms may create a better learning environment because students are not distracted by clothing. The uniform reminds students that they are in school to learn, and then the environment becomes more about education and less about socialization.

These are reasons and they are good ones as well at times school uniforms can be bad but instead of you people focusing on all the bad things about them start focusing on the good things about them.

No it is silly and rediculous. it is all about control. Telling people what to wear, how to act etc. This does not make kids equal. Kids will always find something to pick on other kids for.

of course I agree that it is such kind of control,but school uniform make kids equally, if every student will wear similar clothes, people will be not judge by their clothes , because of finance status of some families. Some families can buy good and beautiful clothes for their child, but another cannot and as we now nowadays kids really attract attention on that what their peers wearing, especially girls and if kid who have no money will wear everyday same clothes, all will laugh to him.

Actually, there are no financial benefits to having uniforms anywhere, just because you have a uniform for your job, does that mean those are the only clothes you ever wear? No, you own other clothes that you wear when you are not at work, so unless you have 24/7 school days in the near future(which have a whole host of problems the likes of which you've never seen) or it just doesn't work that way.

Fashion is an art form and through fashion everyone can be an artist. If we have everyone wear the exact same clothing we are stunting creativity.

It is not so much it is a bad idea as a useless idea.

First of all it does nothing to stop students from seeing each other sexually. The school girl look is one of the most common sexual icons.

It does nothing to foster equality as students all find way to express themselves and their style and wealth.

It does nothing to create respect. School uniforms are always abused.

It requires people to buy clothes they will only use for school.

It does nothing to stop kids from misbehaving. The ones who are misbehaving could care less if they are associated with the school.

The only real benefits I can see is to companies that sell the uniforms and people who like to see teens in School girl uniforms.
