Facts about School Uniforms

A school uniform teaches students to dress smartly and take pride in their appearance... Perhaps most importantly, a uniform means students don't have to worry about peer pressure when it comes to their clothes. When everyone is dressed the same, worrying about what you look like isn't so important.Jan 30, 2017
