Why do kids hate wearing school uniforms? Is it because they don't get to express themselves as they please? 23% of schools have a dress uniform, so that would have to suck for them...

Yeah, usually kids hate wearing school uniforms because they can't express themselves the way they want to. Of course, some like the school uniforms because they don't have to think about what to wear, or worry about fashion sense/being made fun of because of it.

My friend used to go to a private school, and she personally thinks it's fine.

I went to a boarding school for a short time, and we had to wear a suit and tie as our uniform.

I was always trying to bend the rules as much as possible though (for example, by wearing a band sweatshirt and saying it was because I was too cold).

I think it's tough for kids at that age to wear uniforms, because it's the age when you're discovering who you are, trying to "prove" that you are an individual, and also dressing in a way you're comfortable with can act as a confidence boost for teenagers too.

BUT if I had to wear a uniform now, I probably wouldn't mind as much.

It is less hassle that picking clothes each day, and it's true that it brings people closer together/breaks down boundaries between students.

Like anything in life, I guess there are pros and cons!
