Imagine a school with students wearing ripped up shirts and dusty old pants. They would look less like students than like werewolves! Other students are wearing raggedy old clothes. If you visited, would this seem like a good school to you? Students should definitely wear uniforms because schools would look more serious, it helps parents save their money, and it would be easy to tell which kids belong to a certain class on trips.
Students should wear uniforms because school will look more serious. First, the kids would look more educated if they are wearing uniforms. This might not be true, but it is how they would look. When grown ups go to work, people dress to show that they are serious about their jobs. They wear suits and ties and collar shirts. Students would also look serious like school is their job if they wear uniforms. It makes it look like they are all part of the same group, a group of serious students.
Second of all, parents will save money if students wear uniforms. The parents won't become poor because they can buy a few sets of uniforms for their children and not a lot of other clothes. Kids could even just have one uniform, so the parents won't have to pay too much. Then parents can spend their money on things the family really needs instead of a lot of clothes for their children.
Lastly, uniforms will help everyone be able to tell who is in a class when they are on field trips. For example, if a kid is lost on a field trip, you would be able to spot the kid easily from the other students because of his uniform. The whole school would have the same types of uniform, so the kids would all match the other kids from the school. It would be easier for students to find their class on field trips, too. They would just look for the school color.
I really don't think individual clothes are as appropriate as uniforms for school. Why, you ask? Schools with uniforms look more serious, it saves families money, and it helps to make field trips more peaceful and safe. Bye bye, personal clothes. Hello uniforms! How could you not be convinced?
