On one hand it takes away the student's ability to fully express themselves through their clothing. It emphasises conformity at the expense of individuality.

On the other hand, uniforms help people identify with a group. In the school situation particularly, it prevents the students from competing over who is wearing the most expensive clothing. This is very helpful for the poorer students. Where students wear uniforms, they cannot exclude parts of the group by clothing choices.

school uniform deprives youngsters of being themselves and express themselves. wearing your own clothes will be more comfortable and so because of this students are more likely to behave well in school.
