School uniforms solve problems
Shirts with logos promoting drugs, pants below waist, flirty and sexy crop tops with short skirts and piercings. This is not a good view for students who are supposed to study at school - not showing off their new clothes and jewelry. That’s why the school must have a uniform policy. A major reason is because students will get along better. They wouldn’t compare each other based on whose wearing what. In public schools where uniforms are not required, lower income students may feel shy over the cheaper clothes they wear, compared to the more expensive clothes their peers wear.
This competition does not exist when schools require uniforms. This enables students to shift their focus towards schoolwork and away from clothing concerns. So, it will reduce non-academic distractions. In high school, the more cloths students have the more popular and noticed they will probably be. For example, I have a girly teenage sister who loves to look the hottest and most popular girl at school, because what all of her friends think about is to look hotter that other girls in order to get the school’s most popular guy’s attention. So, they have been divided to several groups who are fighting all the time. Uniforms lower the chances of jealousy between students. So, there would be no discrimination because of what they’re wearing. Uniforms require students to get to know each other by knowing who they really are. Negar Gholami, UPEI student
