Do you believe school uniforms make a difference in the lives of students attending schools? In the opinion of most high school students today, uniforms won’t make a difference. Around the world students are required to wear school uniforms to help their education. As of 2006 roughly one in five schools in the United States had some type of dress requirement. (“Update: School Uniforms.”) Schools in the United States are getting stricter when it comes to dress codes.
Landon Stewart Mrs. Luker Government A4 10/23/12 Cons of School Uniforms There are many schools in the U.S. that require their students to wear uniforms, and there are more that don't. I believe that school uniforms should not be required for a few reasons. Uniforms take away from a person's individual identity and freedom to express himself or herself. They can be costly to people depending on a family’s financial status. School uniforms can also be a very uncomfortable fashion that students would not take a liking to.
No matter how they dress for school, other kids will always find a way to pass judgement and bully each other. For example, kids would tease other kids because the uniform doesn't fit their particular body type and shape. Kids should be able to wear what they chose looks best on their own body. The clothes aren't the cause of bullying, so making kids all dress the same won't stop kids from bullying each other. I believe making students wear school uniforms is taking away their freedom to make choices.
School uniforms are an unnecessary addition to public schools. Who wants to wear a plaid skirt or a choking tie every day to school? School Uniforms are being pushed more and more in schools these days. When most people think of the words “school uniforms” they think of private schools or alternative schools, not public. There is no reason for public schools to force students to wear these uniforms.
CONS * School uniforms may hinder self expression through clothing, forcing children to find other ways to put across who they are. Children who wear school uniforms are more likely to use makeup early, and many resort to extreme accessories or to alter their uniforms to differentiate themselves from others. For example, many girls shorten their skirts as a way to rebel against the severity of school uniforms. * Self expression and individuality is important to a
If this is the case the child could start to under achieve and decide to not concentrate as hard on their school work. Doing this may also cause the child to act out in their class and disrupt other children’s learning, as the teacher needs to take time out of the scheduled lesson to tell the child their behaviour is unacceptable. B) How a health factor may impact on a child’s social or emotional development: A health factor that may impact on a child’s social and emotional development could be their height and weight for example: If the child is either short for their age of over weight they may experience a form of bullying from their peers, have a lack of friends at home and at school. This could affect them both socially and emotionally. Socially the child could be a loner or on their own during break or lunchtimes at
Also there was countless number of bullying reports because of clothing. The students who could not afford nice clothes were usually picked on and taunted. It started to get so out of hand that parents started pulling their kids out of Augusta and transferring them to another school. So to prevent bullying problems and students from wearing irrelevant clothing the school established a new dress code policy where students were required to wear uniforms. This new policy helped reduce the amount of bullying throughout the school and also made the school look more professional.
Why gym class (P.E.) should, and shouldn’t be counted against your GPA. Physical education is required by almost every school in the country, and the grades are counted against the students G.P.A. This causes a problem for some students that are physically unfit, but need to keep up a good grade to maintain a good G.P.A. An easy solution for this would be to take off gym as a class that counts against a students G.P.A, but many schools and universities do not agree to this.
Anel Zequera April 11, 2011 Mrs. Nunez English 1301 Uniform Policy Uniform policies can be very brutal and too strict. Many high schools choose to have uniforms so that students can focus more on school academics and not in the way they look or dress. Schools try to do what’s best for the student, not for punishment; without all of these rules, what can I school do to help out their students education and future? School uniforms should be allowed because it helps the students concentrate on the work and not what another student looks like or how they are capable of dressing. School uniforms are to be used to limit skin exposure and anything gang related to prevent anything that might harm students or symbolize anything unsafe.
However, if students have the right reason to drop out of school due to their personality and personal interest, family issues, or they have own business, they should be able to decide their future since talent is not based solely on academics. Personality and personal interest are a crucial factor for student to drop out. Because of the family environment or personal disability, a student may not understand the way the teacher teaches. The student may grow with negative attitude to teacher and course, which prevents the student to absorb knowledge. Students prefer to learn by themselves.
