What is the history of school uniforms?

I do not understand the need for kids to wear uniforms.

Historically many schools required either uniforms or formal dress for the students because it showed that they were privileged, prior to the 1900s it was a mark of wealth to attend school. Uniforms also equalize the playing field and remove obvious disparities in economic status.

People cannot afford school clothing and competition is terrible. Everyone is equal in dress and no can make fun of anyone they think does not dress to their liking.

We all wear school uniforms because it helps to keep us focused. No one wears expensive clothes and such. This makes the classroom and equal environment and there is less competition on the irrevelant issues. And more attention is given the relevant school work.
