Uniforms infringe on student rights, are impractical, and not effective in achieving their intended goal. The 2012-2013 uniform policy includes not only intermediate schools but also high schools. High school students deserve the chance to develop their individualism. Some experts believe that uniforms suppress self-expression, diversity and individuality and that a program encouraging students to pursue individual thought is much more important than what students wear. Critics of uniforms in schools believe uniforms inhibit creativity and self-expression, forcing students to conform or because uniforms can be ugly or unflattering and are harmful to students' self-image. In fact in 1997 the Australian government made it ILLEGAL for school districts to require uniforms and dressing identical is shown to have negative psychological effects on adolescents. School uniforms are much more expensive than what the average student is willing to pay for clothing. Many people feel that uniforms are an unnecessary expense and can create an economic hardship themselves especially considering they will only be worn for a year or two in some cases.
