School uniform

by O. Piskun


  Lots people believe that school uniforms are not necessary and students should be able to wear what they like to school. I don`t agree with this view. School uniforms are very important in a number of ways, I feel.

   To start with, I think school uniforms give students a sense of identity. Wearing the same clothes as everyone else introduces a sense of belonging.

  Without, those students would lose some of their unity and the student body would break out into small groups related to what clothes they wear. Wearing the same clothes breaks down the barriers between children from different economic backgrounds.

  On the other hand, some people feel that uniform limits personal freedom to express yourself through the image you present to others. Nevertheless, many schools have a choice of uniforms, so teenagers can still express themselves in a small way.

    All in all I, am strongly in favour of school uniforms. I believe they play a valuable part in the school life.
