I am definitly a advocate for school uniforms in all publics schools I found a good article
http://www.educationbug.org/a/public-school-uniform-debate.html here giving some good pros and cons just a few examplesa are :
Pros
Wearing a school uniform will prevent cliques or groups
Stealing Items and belongings would be less likely if everyone is wearing the same thing.
Wearing a school uniform can help Identify intruder’s on campus quicker than when students are all in street clothes, intruders will less likely blend in.

Cons

Uniforms will leave students feeling less unique or leaving student feeling unable to express themselves through the way they dress.
Uniforms can be costly and create hardships on families financially
Uniforms can be unflattering for different body shapes and sizes and can hurt a student’s self esteem


In Psycology Today there was a study that show the positive effect that school uniforms have made on the community. Here are their results:

A case study of the effects of adopting school uniforms in Long Beach, CA which appeared in Psychology Today in September, 1999, reported the following effects from the switch to uniforms in 1995:

  • Overall, the crime rate dropped by 91%
