Uniform

  1. According to me uniforms should be mandatory because of different types of students are coming to school such as caste religion and financial status. If students have uniform in school there is no question of other dress. Some students the they are coming from rich family, some students are coming from middle class family ,of there is no dress code they can use as per their choice. Those are coming from rich family they can use costly dress but those are coming from middle where they will get costly dress as a result in a very early they will start differentiate we are poor , they are rich etc. Not only that their mind will be diverted from their study as she wears the dress she looks good but I am not looking not good not smart etc etc, so uniform should be mandatory.
