Do We Need Uniforms

Ezekiel Durning

Uniforms have some positive effects but also have some negative effects. Some of the positive effects of having uniforms are

  • More organization in school and out of school.
  • Better school environment
  • Helps parents save money
  • Prevents students from some forms of bullying 

There are also some negatives of having a uniform which are

  • Belongings and some clothes can be stolen from non-students.
  • They can cause discomfort for students for a 5-6 hour period.
  • They could cause outside bullying by other students from different schools.
  • They can slow down a child’s decision-making skills during interviews or during school sporting events.

Uniforms can have positive and negative effects but are sometimes needed for professional purposes.
