7: Conclusion | If school will take on uniforms they have a chance to stop fights and improve academic scores. How would a safe school sound? In my opinion school uniforms would solve that. Schools with uniforms are less likely to have kids get into fights or get suspended. Grades will also improve seeing how teens won't be focusing on what things other students have.
