The strongest argument against wearing school uniforms is the negative connotation of uniformity.
When students are forced to wear uniforms every day, they don’t have a chance to explore their unique style and express their individuality through the clothes they choose.
Uniforms are much cheaper than most clothes offered in the stores.
A student needs only two or three uniforms per season, which means that the expenses of the parents will be drastically reduced.
Everyone has the right to express themselves freely and by the way they look. Think about it, you go into a school that has uniforms you see everyone wearing the same stuff who is who? They say this is a free country, when they do this and make students wear uniforms, this curtails their freedoms. Students will also inevitably talk about their families, vacations, and hobbies.
What kind of personality could they have, maybe one like being a brick in the wall. The school board is giving off one simple message by doing this... Finally, students will be wearing normal clothing at social events outside of school, which can establish social hierarchies based on clothing, if these hierarchies exist.
Although uniforms are less expensive than most pieces at stores, these families usually get second-hand pieces and the yearly investment in these clothing sets will impose a great burden on their budget.
If school and governments find a way to give uniforms for free, the greatest disadvantage of this issue will be solved.
Such differences may lead to serious psychological consequences for the ones who feel inferior, as well as for those who earn superior positions because they wear more expensive clothes.
Opponents, on the other hand, argue that the uniform will suppress the child’s individuality.
