Yes, wearing hair accessories, bracelets, etc is always limited. If there are just a few color that are allowed to be worn at most schools, then that isn’t a uniform, that is a dress code. You are contradicting yourself. About boys wearing hair accessories, I agree that it might be pretty weird. But they sure can wear some sort of chain necklace if they are rebellious or some weird Star Wars bracelet if they like Star Wars. Yes, students that join a club might also be forced to use a uniform. Let’s say a student joins an art club. An art club usually encourages students to express themselves through art. An art club usually makes some sort of art show to expose the student’s art. When that happens, students express themselves through art. Another example is a debate club. If you join a debate club, you express and defend your opinions. Debate clubs usually have small debates within themselves or a serious debate with another school. There, students get to know each other. Clothing does represent style in some ways but style doesn’t only show with clothing. For example, if you see someone running in a different style than the others and he/she appears faster than the others, you could say he/she is in a cross country team and is trained in a special way.
*style can also mean the way you dosomething
If the school joins everyone together for pick-up, it is hard. But, let’s say you are in the mall or a public place and you are looking for someone. Obviously, they all won’t be wearing uniforms. But it is still hard to find them, right?
If parents help students choose what to wear, then the student isn’t really expressing his/her style. He/she is expressing their parents. If the uniform that the student bought the first and/or second time, they can return it to the store and buy the correct one for the same price.
Again, in order to look their best, this will take time to choose and outfit, which leads back to my previous argument. (If parents help students choose what to wear, then the student isn’t really expressing his/her style. He/she is expressing their parents.) The only occasion you see people from other schools is outside schools. Outside from schools, students don’t have to wear uniforms, so students from other schools won’t make fun of the school. Unless you tell them. If uniforms are ugly, a group of students could make a petition and convince people to sign it in order for a new design to be created and made.
School uniforms do save class time. If teachers check if they are using the uniform, it’s probably quick. All they need to do is look at the students. If she spots one that isn’t wearing the uniform, then it will be easy to spot. This won’t take much time
Yes, a school’s purpose is to educate. But if there were no forced conditions, a school would be messed up. Things such as stealing and bullying would happen. They do happen, but people are around to stop it. Yes, attire doesn’t interfere with education; no matter what you are wearing, you will end up learning (if you are paying attention). But, again, if attire took time to decide, then you would lose valuable class time. That interferes with education. Of course, there are other ways to feel part of the school community. Let’s put it this way: If you are part of a soccer team and the way you are officially part of it is being “blessed” with the uniform. If don’t wear your uniform, doesn’t that mean that anyone could be part of that soccer team?
“Teachers can not only be impress with school uniform presentation, they can…”
You agree. Teachers can be impressed. About the other part, what about kids that don’t dress well? The teachers won’t be so proud.
If you look at other people’s clothing during class because it’s pretty or it says something interesting, you will get distracted and miss the class. If your school used uniforms, then you have nothing to worry about.
“When everyone is dressed the same, worrying about what you look like isn't so important. There is no competition about being dressed in the latest trend.”, reports TheGuardian.

The stated purpose of school is to educate. The process of education, in its true sense, can only occur when the learner is not subjected to irrelevant control measures. True education does not seek to condition, institutionalize or force-by-rote; rather to nurture an ability to think critically. It would be hypocrisy to state that enforcement of rules that are in no way necessary for normal social function should co-exist with the encouragement of critical thinking skills and self-development.
Do you express yourself through the way you dress? Most students do that’s the only way some students can. Other students from other schools make fun of the school uniforms that some schools have. Which causes trouble adjusting to being an adult. Which affects a student or adult to stutter in day to day tasks.
Of course banning school uniform would be great . It allows students to express their individuality and personality so we don’t all feel like we are the same people . However , if uniforms were to be banned rules should be placed in to limit certain kind of clothing . For example , banning clothes that are too sheer . After all , this is a school and not your house you can’t just wear pajamas to school ~ it’s still a formal place to learn
Kids don’t want to have to worry about waking up every day and putting on the same boring uniform. They should be able to wear what they want. They also need their own freedom to wear what they want to, not what others make them wear. That is my argument for banning school uniforms.
