This policy makes all the children at school equal regardless of their family background or income. If students are able to choose their own clothes then the more fortunate kids compete to show off their expensive designer labels and costly sneakers.

Uniforms can be just as expensive as buying regular clothing depending on the brand of uniform you buy and where you purchase them.
Also it is not as if children will not need other clothing also for the evening, weekends, and holidays.
Parents feel they would be buying two sets of clothing for their kids during the school year.
That would add to whatever financial strain they might have and unnecessary cost when they could just go shop for clothing.
What’s the next thing thats going to happen, will schools having edible food. It takes freedom of expression away Students wouldn’t be able to express themselves like others can.
Schools should not have uniforms for these three reasons: It takes the students freedom of expression away, it’s a bandaid reason to cover up violence, and some parents might not be able to afford the uniforms.While school uniforms are typically found in private schools, it was in 1987 that the first public uniform policy went into effect. Then in 1994, the Long Beach Unified Schools District in California adopted a mandatory uniform policy in some of its schools, making it the first urban district to do so. Their children could wear the clothes year- round and for any occasion whether it is school related or not. These three reasons to me would be very beneficial to the student’s in numerous ways and also to the parents. With uniforms taking away this pressure, there is usually a much smaller overall cost for the parents. Students will always find ways to tease or bully others regardless of what clothes are worn but by their hairstyles, height, or weight. Families who are hard-up can often get help with the cost of uniforms in some schools but when it comes to buying regular clothes that type of assistance is not available. They also expressed it was a form of punishing kids from being individuals and feel that uniforms violate the fundamental right of ‘Freedom of Expression’. I as a parent agree with students and parents who are for uniforms in public schools for the following reasons: it helps with social leveling, bullying, and economics. Social leveling is the first reason why I agree with students wearing school uniforms. Also, they should be able to wear what they want and be free to wear what they want.They should also be able to share their personalities with their classmates and family members. Some students can’t express themselves with art or music so, there way is through clothing like: buttons, band t-shirts, etc.
