Who is going to catch everyone breaking the dress code anyways and what are you going to do when you do catch them? Some schools send them home to change but then they are either going to stay home or come back and miss school. Others order a detention but is that really going to keep all students from breaking the dress code?

Whether we like it or not, we always worry about how we look and are in the constant state of a wardrobe dilemma. The use of school uniforms would let the students’ worry less about how they are seen by the people around them, their worry if their “top matches their skirt” or if the question “are my new kicks cool enough?” would be off their list, and if they stop trying to look a certain way, they will actually be able to put their attention on their studies. Also, it is given that this will improve their punctuality as they no longer have to spend a lot of time deciding on what to wear that day.
