Sum it up : 

Sum it up As you can see, school uniforms are bad for several reasons.

If higher-paying careers continue to attract the best and the brightest students, there will not only be a shortage of teachers, but the teachers available may not have the best qualifications. Our youth will suffer. And when youth suffers, the future suffers.
