It is a school's right to have their own uniform, as a chance to attempt unity and equality between all students, however that isn't always the case. If students are made to wear uniform, they can still, at times, get away with certain loopholes that lie within the school's code. For example, a school may have a school uniform shirt and pants, but I'm sure that its a small percentage that show discretion over the footwear that is worn in the school. So, with that being said, a student wearing hush puppies on their feet to school, may feel embarrassed or insecure standing next to a student wearing sneakers such as air Jordan's or foamposates. This can cause conflict within the school. And in reality, if a school is going to make their students wear uniform, they should TRULY be uniform, if not, then there should be no uniform AT ALL. That is the only way to truly prevent confusion and possibly embarassment

I understand the "uniforms" being required because of today's fashion. However, we spend eight hours a day at school, when we get home the day is almost over and we have no time to go out with friends and have fun, dressed like we want to be dressed. When a school requires their students to wear uniforms, they are taking away that students own unique style. Everybody dresses different, different people like to wear different things. Now, there has also been the discussion that people with less money can't afford name brand clothes. If the school didn't have a uniform they would be made fun of, so the kids that get their uniforms from Wal-Mart still get made fun of because they don't have Aeropostle khakis, or American Eagle polo's. School uniforms are what-so-ever not comfortable at all!! We have to sit eight hours a day at school feeling uncomfortable, feeling judged, feeling insecure, etc. I feel like the school uniform should not be required.
