Can prevent bullying and other problems

The cost and quality of the uniforms

As a kid I always hated the school uniform. Then again, I hated most things about school, but that's a different topic. The topic of school uniforms has been around for years, usually with children saying it should be abolished and most parents being for wearing a uniform. There are of course...

School uniform is one topic that is always going to be a source of great debate amongst teachers, parents and students, with a minority always willing to claim that being forced to conform is a violation of the individual persons right to freedom of speech.

Excessive cost in recession

Should school uniforms be abolished? In short: no. It is an issue of contempt among children and parents as to whether schools should have uniforms or not, I never had an issue with wearing a uniform when I was at school, looking back I am glad I wore one. Uniforms provide a number of functions...

I don't think uniforms should be abolished, uniforms for schools are a good idea it helps us recognise the school's colours and logo's and help children belong to the school and be apart of it. The whole reason for uniforms is so that it unites all the members together and shows the pubic what...
