When students where uniforms, students can further represent their school community. According to a high schooler studying at Neale-Wade Academy (March, England), he says “Wearing a uniform is a badge of pride, it creates an identity for a school.” It shows that you’re proud to be in your school community. “Uniforms show you’re a part of an organization. Wearing it says we’re all in this together” says Jason Wing, the headteacher at Neale-Wade. Showing that you’re a part of a school community is important. It shows that the school is one big organization and not a bunch of small ones. A strong school community creates a stronger bond between students, teacher and parents.
School uniforms can excite students. From my own personal experience, I remember when I was about to go to a school that has a school uniform, I would be extremely excited to wear a new school uniform. Also, when I was a lot younger, I would be excited to go to school because I could wear my uniform. And according to Bill O’Chee, an Australian politician and a former senator for the state of Queensland says, “What excited children going to school for the first time is usually their uniform.” Uniforms are just another thing that makes students more excited about school. When students are excited, they concentrate better, and they are more enthusiastic about studying and going to school.
You could argue that school uniforms are expensive. According to an article on ECONOMY.org, “95% of parents think that these cost [of uniforms] are “unreasonable”” Even though uniforms are quite pricey sometimes, it can help students concentrate in class.

In order to help the lives of the entire school community, schools should make uniforms necessary because students further represent the community, it excites students to go to school, and it helps students focus on learning. Now the lives of students, teachers, and parents are easier.
