School Uniforms Today

By: Anna Dawes


All schools in the United States, both public and private, should require their students to wear uniforms.

reasons why

Promotes unity

  • Less expensive
  • Less distraction in the classroom
Reasons why…
unity among all

Schools give their students limited choices of the uniforms that can be worn.

  • With limited uniform choices, students look professional and put together.
  • In 2009-2010, approximately 57 % of public school principals reported that their school enforced a strict dress code, an increase from 47 % in 1999–2000” (NCES).
  • Inner City schools example
UNITY among all
cost and benefit

Research has shown that “keeping an only child properly dressed to age eighteen will cost an average total of $22,063, according to the USDA” (American FactFinder).

  • Argument that initial buying of uniforms is expensive
  • With uniforms, families can budget their money elsewhere.
  • Uniforms can easily be bought at stores like Target, Kohl’s, and discounted stores as well.
Cost$ and benefit$
fewer distractions in the classroom

My personal experience

  • Since there are only selective styles and colors that most schools let their students wear, more focus is put on school work and learning.
  • Elimination of “label competitions” - uniforms set the tone for a proper work attitude in the classroom, reduce behavior problems and improve student performance (Why School Uniforms 1).
  • Argument of INDIVIDUALITY
Fewer distractionsin the classroom…

In conclusion, I feel that schools in the United States would benefit much greater in academics and learning if there was a requirement for students to wear uniforms during school hours.
