    Every school is in essence a learning environment. That which aids learning is acceptable, and that which hinders it should be unacceptable. Add to this the fears of school violence and student safety, and you can see why many school boards are calling for school uniforms. In this article we will look at the pros and cons of school uniforms.

    When you think of a dress code or uniform, what comes to mind? Most people will call to mind the stereotypical images we see in media: pressed and proper uniforms at military academies, the navy blazers or sports coats with ties and slacks at boys schools, and the plaid skirts and white shirts with knee socks and dress shoes at girls schools. But is this actually the norm at private schools?

    Many American private schools trace most of their uniform traditions and dress codes back to their British public school roots. The formal starched collars and tails worn by Eton College boys are world-famous, but they are hardly typical of a normal school uniform these days. Much more common is dress code consisting of the ubiquitous blazer, white shirt, school tie, slacks, socks and black shoes. Dresses, or a blazer and blouse with slacks or skirts are pretty much standard for girls.

    School uniforms are nothing to new to most of the world’s public and private schools, but in the United States, the use of uniforms in public schools is almost unheard of. The way that students dress may seem insignificant to the learning environment, but it absolutely plays a large role. There are strong supporters and arguments for both sides of this issue, but in order to truly understand the conflict, you must understand all of the benefits and consequences that come from implementing a mandatory school uniform.

    1. Helps To Prevent Bullying
    Clothes are a status symbol in schools. Many students who are unable to afford the newest fashions or name brand clothing are ostracized and made fun of. School uniforms puts everyone on an even playing field and prevents this type of bullying from happening.

    Although many schools across the country require that their student body come dressed in a uniform, others do not require that children adhere to a predetermined policy. Allowing students to make their own determinations regarding dress code teaches them to make their own decisions and allows them to express their unique personal styles.

    Uniforms, especially those that have color and style requirements for every part of the outfit, are not easy for many parents to afford. Adults who have elementary aged children in school are especially prone to financial difficulties, as younger students participate in excessive physical play and are not always careful to protect their clothing. Additionally, young people of all ages change their styles on a regular basis and grow rapidly, resulting in the abandonment of old clothing and requiring the purchase of new accessories.

    Most parents, educators, and students are quick to weigh in on the issue of school uniforms, citing their reasons for and against an across-the board-uniform policy. While many kids instantly dismiss the idea of school uniforms because they want to be able to choose their own clothes, others point to more compelling reasons for why they should or shouldn't wear specific clothing. In any case, in order to answer the question, "What do kids think about school uniforms?" you have to look at both sides of the issue from students' viewpoints.

    What do kids think about school uniforms? Regardless of what the adults might believe, kids also have definite opinions on the topic of school uniforms.

    There are no more public school uniforms at High Schools only if you are going to a private school. Dropout is caused by other reasons, lessons, teachers or the student sometimes just does not care.
