Growing up with this Reputable Catholic School, I have heard different cries and arguments both from students and school administration regarding School Uniforms. Now I want to share the Pros and Cons of School Uniform for both parties involved not to mention, the parents.
The Pros and Cons of School Uniform
The Pros and Cons of School Uniform: SAFETY– Most of the school designed their uniforms for safety purposes of the students. How? Students in uniform are carrying its identification with the school, much that the security officers can recognize their students even at a distance.
The Pros and Cons of School Uniform: COST EFFICIENT– Schools using uniforms are budget friendly for parents, as well as to those self-supporting students. Instead of buying more than 5pairs of outfit (most of the time, MORE!), by having school uniforms required in school, you can at least, if you’re in a real budget, just get 2-3 pairs to wash it alternately.
- The Pros and Cons of School Uniform: CREATIVITY– As students are more concern on how they look like, or the ‘fashion’…and as the school requires that you should all look the same, the individuality and creativeness will surface. Some will make it fitter, or looser, longer or shorter…depending to their own style, and still in accordance with the school uniform policies.
On my opinion, I’d rather go to a school that require uniform because of the security. That’s the main reason why they use uniforms anyway, identification. Also, it will saves you a lot for buying fashionable clothing, and you can save your best clothes for best occasions and parties, making it more appealing when you wear it, rather than wearing fashion clothes that you wear in school most of the time, its colors and designs were already ruined and faded.
More time to take care of your clothes, besides, school is a place for learning not showing off designer clothing and expensive accessories, but anyways fashion is everywhere… Its the values and character that is more fashionable in school.
