How many times in your life were you stopped from doing what you want to do? Well, many students around the world sacrifice all 5, or even 6 days a week to wear the uncomfortable school uniforms for approximately 3 to 15 years of their life. Ties, buttons, thick textured clothing, socks, shoes and even hairstyles with chosen colour; schools with mandatory system of wearing uniforms set these kinds of dress codes for students to wear whenever they attend classes. Remember the long dark pants and skirts with thick jackets and shirts that you had to put on every time you went to school? I am pretty sure you could relate to these students of how irritating those were and how you wanted to go home quick just to take the uniforms off back in those days. But, do you really think these were helpful for students for their school lives? Today, I’d like to talk to you about the problems of school uniforms; its’ exceedingly costly price, the unnecessity of it, and how it promotes conformity rather than individuality.
First of all, I will explain why uniforms are exceedingly costly.
Did you know that Americans spend around $ one billion on school uniforms every year? That is approximately the cost of the Chicago Cubs, LA Lakers and the Solomon Islands. Parents spend this ridiculously high amount of money on just 4 or 5 sets of uniforms that will just end up in the bin when kids graduate. Some of your peers struggle because of these costly uniforms as it gives financial burden to them.
