Letter: Students shouldn’t be forced to wear uniforms

I feel like the schools that have to wear uniform shouldn’t.

I feel like wearing uniforms is unnecessary. Why should we go out and pay extra money for clothes we’re only going to wear on school days and only for one year, unless you don’t grow out of them.

We could easily buy clothes that we could wear to school and in public.

It’s a waste of money and I know I’m not the only one who thinks we shouldn’t wear uniforms.

On top of not wanting to wear the uniforms, we have to buy them and they’re expensive.

Wearing whatever you want is a good way to show off your own style. Again, my biggest issue about wearing uniforms is the fact that most people don’t enjoy them and they aren’t cheap.

What happens if you grow out of them? What happens if you accidentally stain them? You have to go and buy a new pair. One pair of my uniform pants that i won’t be wearing anyway else is $20. To me that is a big waste of money.

That is why I feel we shouldn’t have to wear uniforms
