School uniform has many advantages and disadvantages, also. It depends on what people
think about it. They have their own point of view, therefore we have many different opinions.
Some people think that school uniform is not really good for students because it prevents
students from expressing themselves, it can make them feel uncomfortable, and they don’t
want to be seen the same as all the students. In my opinion, wearing school uniforms is good
because it can help distinguish students from other people, make them feel equal, and also
make them proud of their school.
First of all, school uniforms help students be distinct from other people. We can identify who
are students or not at school or even outside school if they are wearing uniforms. Moreover,
students who are wearing uniforms can be helped by many people. For instance, they have
more discounts or benefits from others because people think that “Oh, they are students, they
study lots of good things at school, and they will be the future of the country. So I will give them
some discounts and encourage them to be a good student”. Therefore, school uniform is useful
for student because it helps distinguish students from others.
Secondly, school uniforms make students feel equal. The worst thing that could happen at
school is that if you identify who are the rich students and who are not, you will treat them
differently, although you didn’t realize that! Then, poor students who know your unkind
behaviors may feel uncomfortable, miserable, and disappointed. They don’t have any
encouragement to study hard, and they might be very bad students. But if students are
required to wear school uniforms, you won’t recognize who is rich or who is poor. Everybody
will give them opportunities equally. Besides, uniforms help poor students feel more
comfortable when they study with other students at school. There is no difference between
them, they can develop their friendship and they will focus on their studies.
Finally, school uniforms also make students feel proud of their school. For example, if there
is a meeting and they are required to connect with students from many different schools,
wearing school uniforms helps students feel more confident, and they participate in activities
voluntarily with high efforts to demonstrate their school is good. Furthermore, students are
wearing uniforms also feel proud of their school if other people recognize them outside school.
In conclusion, uniforms are not only help students to be distinct from other people, to be
more beautiful, but also make them feel equal to other students. Futhermore, they can proud
of their current schools if they are recognized by lots of people. Therefore, in my opinion, I
think school uniforms should be required.
