Thesis Statement

My own view is that although in principle uniforms may seem like a good idea, they ultimately take away one of the most interesting and exciting aspects of school; individuality,as well leading to an increase in spending by parents, as well leading to an increase in bullying

In recent discussions of freedom of speech, a controversial issue has been whether or not high school students should be required to wear uniforms to class. Althoughin principle uniforms may seem like a good idea, they ultimately take away one of the most interesting and exciting aspects of school; individuality, as well leading to an increase in spending by parents, as well leading to an increase in bullying. A uniform requirement strips students of the thing that makes them different. It allows for no originality in a place where there is already little enough. It also leads to an increase in spending by parents. Now parents must spend money on five pairs of khaki’s, as well as five polo’s. However these polo’s must fit each students size and for a family with more than one child this can be incredibly expensive. Uniforms even increase bullying by turning it from a who’s clothes are nicest to a who fills out the clothes better competition. This leads to harsher critique of students features that are much harder to change than just a simple wardrobe change.

The group discussion helped me to realize that athough two of my points may have made sense much more money could be saved through the use of uniforms. I also gained new ideas as well as a new reason to replace with my cost reason, which is that uniforms do exactly what a dress code does but has more negative effects.
