school uniformThe years that we as individuals are in primary school is a testing-ground for the development of our personalities and values. A common occurrence during this phase is individuals vying to look original – appear different than the ‘crowd.’ Our appearance, clothes and style is one of the most efficient ways to express our uniqueness. These facets of expression aid others in reaching an understanding of who we are, and why. However, there has been an ongoing debate on whether school uniforms should be abolished in schools, both private and public, or if uniforms should become a compulsory addition to all middle-level educational institutions in the United States (Gregory, Pull House). Despite the friction between the pros and cons, I personally gravitate towards the idea that school uniforms should be introduced in primary public and private schools ubiquitously. Wearing school uniforms does not promote unfair comparisons between student’s incomes in terms of clothing, they aid students in developing their inner qualities instead of focusing on the outer aspects of themselves in the crucial earlier years of their lives, and provides a platform for practicing discipline.
