So, in conclusion these are two good reasons why some people are against school uniforms. My first rebuttal to the first argument that people against school uniforms (which the argument would be “it takes away freedom of expression “) is again, kids can still accessorize with certain things when they must wear uniforms. The Administrators at schools aren’t requiring uniforms to take away kid’s freedom of expression they are there because kids feel more comfortable knowing that they are all wearing the exact same thing so that there will be less bullying or that the more school spirit that the kids bring to school each day that they come to school.

Uniforms help students to prepare for when they leave school and may have to dress smartly or wear a uniform in their future jobs, they gain responsibility to dress smartly, and dress appropriately. It brings so many benefits for so many reasons. Parents don't even have to spend so much money in clothing for their students.

Dear Wicomico County Board of Education, Schools should be a safe place for all students and staff. However, the increasing number of active shooters are threatening and changing school security all over the United States, including Wicomico County.
