The Power of the School Uniform People make many difficult decisions everyday that possibly may change the future. When we think of future, we think of the young students and how our future depends on them. The awgovernment continues to find ways to increase school’s ways of enhancing young students’ minds.

MaCoHigh Instructor McCauley ENC 1101 February 27, 2012 Should Uniforms Be Worn In Public Schools? Many parents argue about whether or not uniforms is a good fit for their children to wear to a public school. Uniforms are a good fit for a public school just as we as it is for a private school. If kids were enforced to wear uniforms to school it could solve a lot of issues: Kids won't be picking at other kids because of their clothes, staffs do not have to worry about whether or not the student outfit is inappropriate or not, and students could help promote themselves for future workplaces.

Yell explains the current laws and regulations on disciplining students in special education. Throughout the chapter Yell breaks down the different aspects of discipline in schools in regards to special education. Yell starts out explaining the procedural due process used to create fair polices. Yell also talks about how schools are given the power to act as parent for the child while they are at school. This does not mean that parents have no rights to what happens to their child while they are at school but this allows school to guide student behaviors though discipline.
Students should always feel that they belong to the school for the right reason: getting an education in a safe and friendly environment. A survey carried out by the Department for Education & Skills revealed that 83% of parents are in favor of school uniforms, claiming that they contribute to better school standards and good behavior(Shaw, Michael). The use of school uniforms would tremendously cut down on bullying, lost class time, and intruders. Hundreds of kids come home from school each day with hurt feelings. Their feelings being hurt by fellow students, also know as bullies.
“School officials have a responsibility to provide a safe, secure, and productive learning environment. Dress and appearance play a role in doing so” (“School Safe and Security Services”, 1996-2012, para. 1). If children place too much emphasis on what they look like, or how expensive other student’s clothes cost, it can make an unsafe and unhealthy environment. Students and some adults claim that, “School-uniform policies infringe upon students’ First Amendment rights to freedom of expression” (“Dress Codes Verses Public Schools”, 2012, para.

Like my professor says “ A mind is a terrible thing to waste.” I agree that dress codes will not make public schools perfect, but i can guarantee that it will make a big difference. Dress codes will keep the students more focused on the studies rather than worrying about what other students were saying about clothing.

Over the decades there has been an ongoing debate to change the United States education system in guiding students on a superior future. With the establishment of the No Child Left Behind Act, the importance to score higher on the standardized test has resulted in making budget cut to have more academic courses. When the current U.S. administration made budget cut decisions, the first thing to go is the art, music, and theater classes.

First, mandating uniforms in public schools can prevent kids from getting bullied. Bullying is a big issue in schools nowadays. Kids can be so critical when it comes to judging others. Kids will judge other kids by what they’re wearing, if kids don’t wear certain brand names they’re not considered part of the cool kids and they will exclude them from their group. Kids who wear uniforms don't have to worry about what people think about their outfit and they can focus more on their studies and schoolwork.
