Students don't always like wearing it and if they wear it incorrectly then are given detentions - I don't see many positives at all.
In the US there are no uniforms and there is no major difference between us and them....also its one less thing for the teachers to worry about and because the students are allowed to wear what they want (within reason) then its better for there confidence.
having a non school uniform makes a much more relaxed learning environment - studies show it makes teachers and students get along better - however having a uniform promotes structure. Enforcing a school uniform takes time effort - wouldnt it be better if teachers concentrated on teaching.
Personally i think 6th former should be allowed to wear what they want - teacher-student bond in 6th form is important i think - non school uniform promotes this
i think the whole principle of school uniform started so that people were not able display their wealth by the way they dressed and the "plebs" were not bullied. they were assumed a pleb by the clothes they wore.
so by wearing a uniform everyone was deemed equal.
well at least i THINK that's where it stemmed from
benefits of school uniform
1. makes a clear distinction between the pupils of a school and an outsider.
2. i do not have to spend time deciding what to wear.
3. after 2 weeks of constant school i will run out of new clothes to wear. would then have to constantly buy new clothes thus putting a dent into my balance.
Steal my thread why don't you. There is a difference between American schools and British schools ,look how horribly rigid their school stereotypes are, something in part I think which has to do with their ability to dress as they please. School uniform is also a wonderful British tradition.
in my school uniform was very strict, and i have to say that in many ways it was used to add to the authority of the teachers. it sort of kept you 'scared' of them because they could just give a detension if a shirt was untucked/something similarly minor.
