Wearing a school uniform takes away a child's right to express his or her uniqueness. Children lose a piece of their individuality by having to dress the same as everyone else.
School uniforms cause children to give up their self-identity. Clothing allows a person to show a unique part of themselves. Uniforms do not allow them to show what they like or who they really are . Also, uniforms are not cheap. If a child's parents cannot afford more than a couple, they will have to continuously do laundry. Most uniforms need to be ironed and hung up to avoid wrinkling. This adds unnecessary stress on the parents.
