{March 23, 2009}   School Uniforms
In highschool what you wear is a big part of identifying who you are, school uniforms take that identification away.    Most students at our school do not think we should change to uniforms, I agree.    Individuality is what makes life fun, if everyone was exactly the same and wore exactly the same thing life would be so dull.    Its nice to wake up every morning and being able to decide what you wear, noone wants a school board to pick out your entire wardrobe for them.   
 I believe that highshcools should not have uniforms. Although many schools want students to have uniforms to correct behavior issues, the uniforms will not change the way kids act.  If anything making the students wear uniforms will cause more behavioral problems within the school.  The school board should let students wear what they choose to wear but I do think that they should have rules involved such as no tummy shirts, or short skirts, or really baggy pants.  If students can wear what they want they can really show who they are.  Uniforms violate the students choice of wardrobe and fashion.
I have grown up in a world that tells us to be different and to express yourself. Each and everyday I express myself through what I wear and the clothes I put on. Schools are strict enough as it is and I think they should give kids the choice of what they wear since they don’t really give us the choice for anything else.  Uniforms should be the last resort of punishment for clothing vialations.
Picture yourself in a school, walking down the halls, your looking for a friend, but everyone is dressed the same and you can’t find your friend. THIS is what uniforms would be like, they would be a miserable onsight of the same thing over and over.  Nothing would ever change and nothing would be different.
In conclusion I do not think that any school should have school uniforms just because I believe in individuality. If you are reading this and you believe that schools shouldn’t permit uniforms, speak up.  I believe in a world where everyone should be able to wear what they choose to wear.sapporo-junior-high-school-female-uniforms3
