School Uniform - Good Tradition or Outdated Habit?

School uniform, is it a good tradition or outdated habit? School uniform has been there since schools were established. In my opinion, I think wearing the school uniform is an outdated habit. A school uniform can be defined as a specific dress code, set by the education department.

Why do I say wearing a school uniform is a bad habit? It means wasting money and time to buy specific school uniforms set by the education department. Why can't students wear jeans. or shorts with a T-shirt to school? It means saving money, because you need not buy extra clothes. The current school uniform is also quite uncomfortable, because the current dress code for boys is white shirt and long pants. in a hot country like Malaysia, wearing long pants can be sometimes quite unbearable.

Furthermore, wearing the same old thing everyday can be a bore. Everyone's wearing it, where is the creativity? Where is the freedom of expression? Choices of clothes to wear to school can denote one's identity. The current school uniform is not up to date with the latest fashion too. Teenagers, like to be up-to-date with the latest fashion. In Australia, students have the freedom to wear anything they like to school, as long it's proper. Why can't teenagers in Malaysia follow suit too?

The specific dress code should be abolished! Students should have the freedom to wear anything they like to express their identity. School uniforms are outdated!

Actually I don't really mind having to wear school uniforms, because it means that I do not even need to think of what to wear every morning~save time~XD
I think it's good that we have school uniforms. I've read books like 'Chicken Soup' and 'jJr High' and it seems that 'what to wear to look cool?' is included in the typical teen's 'worry list'.
Still, I think Form 5 should be the last year for uniforms! After that~freedom!

我反而会觉得校服很不错呢!
因为假如没有校服的话应该是会有一些人会穿一些不恰当的衣服来学校不是吗?
再加上,那只不过是简简单单的一套衣服罢了……它阻止不了什么……

Actually school uniforms are better than other clothes..
Although I hate wearing that damn thing, but at least i don't have to think about my dress everyday..
And, a person's creativity can be shown in other ways, if only can be shown in dressing, that means the person is not so creative.. Loz.. Why you think so much? This is the last year ald lo..

Can you people not spell?!? And I agree uniforms are horrible. I mean, gosh. Freedom of expression gone much. And sure you could find more ways to be creative WHILST wearing the atrocity, but the easiet thing to do is pick out your own clothes to wear and say 'Look at me! This is what I like! And you can't make me wear anything else! MUAHAHA'
