While it feels tempting to keep allowing students to wear clothes of their own choice, as long as they follow the dress code, for reasons such as it enhances individuality of students, there are several motives for why ISL should impose the rule of school uniforms. It looks more professional, brings students together more and helps children avoid potential embarrassments from others for the 'have-nots'.
Generally speaking, school uniforms have always had an image of professionalism. It allows a more businesslike approach to learning by automatically avoiding distractions usually confronted like the dilemma of wearing clothes from the latest fashion lines or whatever is 'hip' at the moment. There is no question about what to wear on each day, as you do not have to worry about clothes as part of your 'look'.
Also, school uniforms have a propensity of getting the students more involved like a team at school.
This allows everyone to be included in the sense that everyone is wearing the same shirt and pants and the level of image is the same for all, at the same time as students can keep their respective individuality.
Last but not least, with school uniforms at ISL instead of the latest clothing trends, it may help our students avoid mockery, embarrassment, or exclusion from other students for the 'have and have-not' stigma. School uniforms are of great help in avoiding such problems by not having to worry about what to put on in the morning and risk conflict; at least during the time of the day which the students spend at school, which in our case is more or less all day.
All things considered there are several motives for why ISL should impose the rule of school uniforms. It looks more professional, brings students together more...
