Is school uniform necessary?
Is there really a point in the school dress code? is it really needed? In America they do not require school uniforms is this a good or bad thing? Teenagers often criticize school uniform about not being trendy or it just is not comfortable. however, school uniform also has multiple benefits says Macy Vallance “I like uniforms because everyone is the same and no one can be left out by the way they are dressed.” Though “everyone is the same” is not always a benefit in my opinion because it becomes boring and repetitive and doesn’t allow you too express yourself.
