Your phone rings and its the school your child attends. They are calling to tell you
that your child got into another fight over the clothes they were wearing. He is suspended for 3
days, and is missing out on education. To think, all of this could be avoided if the school required
uniforms. High schools obviously should impose uniforms. There are three reasons. For one, it
reduces bullying. Furthermore it lessons the stress of student and parents. Lastly, it gives scholars
a sense of responsibility and discipline. Now a day, many high schools, both public and private,
require students to wear uniforms. However I think that all high schools must require uniforms

This is because
in the world today many people care about their appearance, so now students are taking time

misbehave outside of school because their uniforms identified them easily (Clark 1). Uniforms
encourage the individual students of a school to feel like part of a big group. Their feeling of
being together, working together and having something in common are all helped by uniforms.
As matter of fact, many people who are against school uniforms say uniform take
away the students ability to express themselves. Why have people forgotten that we are not all
books to be judged by our cover. Why don't people compliment someone on their personality or
something they have done, instead of the clothes they are wearing. Why are people so quick to
judge someone by the belt on their waste, or the purse on their arm.
In today’s society clothing is a big part of how someone judges you. By enforcing
uniforms, you push students to find new way to standout, such as been social...
