    Frankly I like the idea of school uniforms.

    However, we are not going to do your work for you. Do a web aearch on the subject (there are some previous threads here on it) and form you own ideas. If you would like us to critique them, then post them and we will be glad to help.

    This must be a question that comes up once a semester at your school:

    Check out this thread:

    So, why do I not like school uniforms?

    Few reasons:

    1) The cost to the parents and child goes up. Not only does The Parent have to buy the school uniform, but he also has to buy other regular clothes for the child when the child goes out to socialzie with theire friends.

    2) Children do not ge to learn about freedom of expression or simply how to express themselves. Children need to learn to express themselves and be accepted for the choices they make. School Uniforms simply hinder that process, not help it.

    3) All the students will be the same. In the real world, that's not the case. In the real world, people ARE different and it should be reflected like that in the school system. We need to teach the children to get along with others EVER WHEN THEY ARE DIFFERENT. If everyone looks the same with uniforms, you can't really teach the children that lesson now can you?

    4) Censorship. School uniforms are a form of censorship. While censorship is sometimes neccesairly in cases or hate crims against religions and races, we can't let it get out of control. School Uniforms are censoring a child's creative side. And alsmost always, Paretns never sees eye to eye with the child, and it's the paretns who are trying to implement school uniform. Look at the 1960s and the hippie revolution. Paretns and Children didn't see eye to eye, so should there have been a school uniform policy then? Perhaps it would have crushed the hippie movement. Would that have been a good thing?
