Many people worry that not allowing children to wear certain clothing will “stifle their creativity” (p. ) or restrict their First Amendment rights (Nevada, 2008).
Students should have to wear uniforms to help emphasis from competition on who looks better to better academics, less violence, self-esteem and personal achievements.

For example, teachers saw that when the students wear school uniforms, they will be more settled and ready to learn (Walmsley, 2011). In addition, LaPoint, Alleyne, Mitchell and Lee, (2003) talked about Lopez 's reporting that showed the benefit of school uniforms on school climate, attendance, and students discipline for elementary and middle school students in the Long Beach Unified School District .

Further more school uniforms can alleviate school violence, because it will help kids with less money escape the teasing they would get if the school had no uniforms.
Why, because if they don’t were uniform it would affect them on the school behavior, and they would not learn much during school hours.
