Many students here at Sheridan High School show their self identity through clothes. In forcing the uniform rule would limit others self expression. Students use their clothes to express themselves and to identify with certain social groups of other students. This also limits students freedom to wearing what they like. Students buy their clothes to show off at school. Here at Sheridan High we have a simple dress code, if you are not taken by a teacher or any staff member, then your outfit is safe to wear. Camille Guaty once said that she went to a Catholic school, and she had to wear a uniform. So the only way she could express herself, was through her shoes. Many people show their expression through different ways.
