Do school uniforms make school and student better?What are the advantage and disadvantage of having one?

According to my researches, having uniforms can promote discipline in the school. The uniform code requires discipline.

In most school rules, skirts must be at least knee length and shorts must be worn under the skirts or dresses.

School uniforms help to get ready for school earlier each morning. ‘’Having a uniform makes me prepare quickly in the morning because I don’t have to decide what to wear everyday.’’, according to a student.

If the students are wearing the same clothing. Students can prevent comparison between each other. Also, there will be no jealousy between them.

School uniforms cost less compared to the trending clothes that cost a lot of money. Buying uniforms can also help parents and students that are working. They don’t have to buy trending clothes for their child or for themselves.

Having school uniforms can/can’t prevent gang formation in the school campus. The students are grouping according to their personality and passion in life.

The first school uniforms were worn in 16th century in the United Kingdom. The Christ Hospital School in London in 1552 was the first school to use a school uniforms.

The practice of wearing school uniforms have been adopted by many other countries, and is now common in many parts of the world. There is around 43 countries that are wearing school uniforms today particularly in Asia.
