Here are 4 of the reasons why I strongly believe we shouldn't wear a uniform:

Takes away our freedom:

Wearing a uniform takes away our freedom of expression as it limits how we can express ourselves. Children should be able to express themselves however they like and uniform doesn't allow individuality. How are we supposed to find out who we are if we can't even dress how we want?


It can be uncomfortable for students and they may find it harder to concentrate. Plus, in a lot of instances, it can be irritating and could be embarrassing for them as it may not suit their body type which can then lead on to bullying. Do you really want to spend your teens years being uncomfortable and irritated?

Wastes money:

Having a uniform wastes money as our parents have to keep replacing and paying for new uniforms year after year, when we could just wear our own clothes and not having to keep spending as much money.

Not appropriate:

Our home clothes are good and appropriate clothing for all year round, and if we wore them to school, we wouldn't get really cold in winter, and in summer we wouldn't get really hot. Also, wearing dark and tight clothing all day can leave us with a not-so-nice body odour.
