What are the advantages and disadvantages of having uniforms at school?

The fact that school uniforms are compulsory in some parts of the world but play an insignificant role somewhere else somehow proves that uniforms don’t always have beneficial impacts. On the one hand, uniforms create a sense of equality and unity among students regardless of their social backgrounds. Whether they are from underprivileged families or come from money, students would not be discriminated by the way they dress. In addition, it would prevent some children from making inappropriate clothing decision. On the other hand, some claim that having students wear uniforms interferes with their creativity and self-expression. Clothing defines people and personal identity, therefore, being forced to put on identical garments with others would deprive students of their self-determination.
