Every school in the world has its own regulation about the way to wear. During this time, many schools debated whether students should wear uniforms or not. At several schools students required to wear uniform, but in some school uniforms are not required. They allow students to wear casual clothes. Some people think wearing uniforms should not be required because it prevents students from expressing themselves, it can make them uncomfortable and they don’t want to be seen the same as all the students. However, there are still arguments for it; school uniforms have increasingly demonstrated their importance and influence in many ways. Students should have to wear uniforms because school uniforms make students perform better at school, it can save parents money and uniforms also make students feel proud of their school.
First of all, School uniforms improve student performance by helping students focus on learning rather than fashion. According to Christen Gans, the National Association of Secondary School Principals stated that “When all students are wearing the same outfit, they are less concerned about how they look and how they fit in with their peers; thus, they can concentrate on their schoolwork.” It is easy to choose what to wear to school when you wear a uniform, so students aren’t tardy as often. Less time is wasted in class dealing with inappropriate clothing, too. Fewer tardies and distractions mean students who wear uniforms are able to devote more time to learning.
Secondly, School uniforms can save parents money. Parents can reduce their financial burden when their children are limited to wearing one simple outfit every day. According to Christen Gans, “ A national survey of 517 US school leaders found that 94% of those surveyed believe one of the main benefits to parents is that school uniforms are more cost-effective than regular apparel, and 77% estimated the average annual cost of school uniforms per child to be $150 or less.” Therefore, parents didn’t have to be worry about how much money they would have to spend. Uniforms are a set price and can be used year to year. Parents Will be able to calculate how much money they would need to spend and have an exact amount for their children’s clothing.
Finally, school uniforms also make students feel proud of their school. According to Dahlia Muthanna, a study conducted by Oxford Brookes University in the United Kingdom found that “uniforms often directly contribute to a feeling of school pride.” For example, if a student do a lot of good things such as helping people, get good grade or returning the things that they have collected from others, people will think that the student are taught very well, and the school that the student are studying is very good at education. Thus, the school’s reputation is spread out, which is very helpful for the school. Therefore, students are wearing uniforms make students feel proud of their school.
In conclusion, wearing school uniforms are better than wearing what students want. It is not only convenient but also very important to the school and students. Besides that, it is also a beautiful cultural of a school. School uniforms improve student performance by helping students focus on learning rather than fashion and uniforms can save parents money. Furthermore, they can be proud of their current schools if they are recognized by lots of people. Therefore, although few people do not like to wear uniform, students should wear uniform and feel proud of them because it is the symbol of their school.
