1110 Reasons School Uniforms Are a Bad Idea and School Uniforms Should Be Banned

In the past few years, more and more schools have been requiring their students to wear uniforms. As many as one in eight American public schools have been implementing this policy. While there are many advocates for the continuous usage of school uniforms, there is another side that rallies against it. Why? You’ll find out in the list below.

First, a Brief History of Uniforms

Although the uniform requirement has just been recently imposed, uniforms have been in existence for several centuries now. The first documented usage of a ‘standard’ garment in education was in 1222, where students were required to wear a “cappa clausa” or a robe-like outfit.

Fast forward to 16th century England, students of the Christ Hospital Boarding School became the fathers of the ‘modern school uniform.’ These children wore blue cassocks and yellow stockings, to mirror the look of the clergymen who looked after them. Up to now, this uniform is still in use, making it the ‘oldest uniform in history.’

School Uniforms in the United States

While the English have long been using uniforms, the United States was quite loose with the uniform system. Only the students of private and parochial schools were first required to wear uniforms – at least until 1987. Maryland and Washington DC were the first states to implement uniforms in public schools. Later on, other states followed suit.

Despite such changes, all states are not compelled to require uniforms. However, more and more school districts are going against this ruling. If your school directors are thinking of doing so, then make sure to let them read these top 10 reasons why school uniforms are a bad idea.

    there is a typo in #4 that says “Those who are in favor of uniforms believe that they are cheaper alternatives, because the students have to wear every day.” you missed the word them in “…. the students have to wear every day….”

    So on your list “Why School Uniforms Should Be Mandatory” wouldn’t numbers 4,6, and 7 just make the “facts” listed in the mandatory list counter intuitive?

    • Counter-intuitive? Contrary to intuition or to common-sense expectation? I’m gonna say no.

      • AzinKoro

        My mistake. I meant they are contradicting each other.

        • Yes they are. May the best argument win!

    You have a pretty biased view of school uniforms, putting them in an unfair light by using such words as “They’re just boring” “They should be banned!” , etc, etc.
    When i read the “uniforms actually increase bullying” one, I was intrigued, then shocked to find out that you guys posted nothing but “It increased so-and-so percent”. There is absolutely no significant evidence that the uniforms caused that (false cause), except for the percentages of course. Maybe the bullies did find another thing to bully them about, and that’s why it increased!
    And the first amendment violation one? Bull-poop. Basically anything a parent says to do to a child (etc: “eat your veggies”, “clean your room”) should be counted as a violation of that. That rule only counts towards serious things such as communism, where a person’s freedom is CLEARLY supressed.

    I once attended a school that required the students to wear uniforms. My family, at the beginning went to a pace where they sold overgrown shirts as well. Our family wasn’t really poor, so we bought new ones. Unfortunately they started to wear out in the middle of the year. There was only one place to obtain new ones because I attended a school that sold its own shirts. I was once in a public school, in the same area, that sold shirt or four dollars. The charter school however, sold shirts that were almost thirteen dollars. The funny part, my old uniforms for the public school lasted three years and my brother, in sixth grade, has yet to wear them out. I don’t understand why the charter schools shirts cost more money. I have gone through three of my shirts and one is starting to fall apart. The mornings are hard, trying to find a shirt. According to the principal “If you want to wear it, it has to have a logo.” I was fine with the requirements until there was a new rule where you “may not wear a jacket that does not have the logo on it. The school board made the rule in the middle of of the day, in the midst of winter. Children, at the time I was in eighth grade, was forced to take off there jacket during recess. The eighth graders have recess with the sixth graders. At the time I felt bad for the siblings, most of the eighth graders had siblings in sixth.

    Uniforms could possibly linked to bullying and low self esteem. When I went to school, one could say I was definitely not a size zero. The uniforms were designed for slimmer girls, and I tried everything I could to appear slim. If the main goal of those uniforms was to stop obesity in children, they would certainly win some kind of award. Now I know what you are thinking, “this is super biased” and “this is probably just one school”. This happened to me in multiple schools, the sizes always brought down my self esteem.

    There are some perks to a school uniform and people may disagree with my protest against them. I can not truthfully say that I am not biased. I have had, multiple, extremely horrible experiences with them.

  • I had to go to a school with uniforms for 5 years. What I learned from that experience is that school uniforms may seem like a big, cool thing in all, but you actually do get bullied more in a uniform school vs a normal public school. More kids than at the school I went after the uniform school killed them selves from bullies than the new school I went to. I remember one girl was small, and wasn’t very good looking, so many made fun of her and laughed. She was very hurt and many could see it. I moved and I called my friend and he said that she killed her self 2 weeks after I moved. 5 other people committed suicide within a space of 7 months at the school. Even I remember being bullied. In fact, everyone got bullied at my school, except for all the cool kids and stuff. I don’t want people to pity me, I’m just saying that if you are excited about school uniforms, maybe check twice.

    My best friend went to private school…we’ve been friends since high school and are almost 30 now…she is attracted to rebellion possibly because her parents were strict….the biggest issue with her and “rebellion” is she’s hanging out with extremely trashy people….she can’t tell the difference between an artistically, intelligent, interesting rebel vs straight up white trash. I think this is due to the uniforms. I sound incredibly snobby saying this but she’s not hanging around nice people who came from poor families. These people are IDIOTS. And they are gross, miserable and dumb. She’s the prettiest girl I know and its obvious she comes from a family of educated classy people. She told me I’m not ” real” lol because of my snobbishness lately. I don’t think she knows what she means by “real” we are 30. It’s not cool to be gross. We are from New England. The “hillbillies” here are usually white kids who wanted to be black in high school. It’s very trashy especially when their wearing faded FUBU or PACO jeans 15 years later. She’s not hanging around the laid back faded Levi’s blue collar guy…she’s hanging around gross ppl! It’s annoying. She’s engaged to the white trash ghetto guy. I call them “white trash ghetto”. I would never be able to explain this to her. It’s just hard to watch. Clothes are very important! You can easily tell the difference between an intelligent person who isn’t materialistic and one whose just straight up trash or bad taste because they are dumb. My friend who wore uniforms doesn’t know the difference.

  • LaDiva

    I’ve been wearing uniforms my entire life ( I’m only in high school) and from my experience I’ve found that people get bullied a lot more than when they wear their own clothes. I’m a black belt in karate and it’s really helped me when it comes to people who ever try to bully me or my best friends. I’ll literally FIGHT for my friend and my mom.

    For your 3rd point, you said that uniforms prevent self-expression. But point #7 says that “Even when everybody’s wearing the same thing, a student’s distinct personality will still stand out.”. Also, a student can express his or herself in ways besides clothing.

    You can ask Trump to ban uniforms at public and private schools .that would not be an issue to him. Actually, speaking about education,MR Donald seems to be interested in banning education itself to those most in need.
