The student can accessorize with many colors, even wearing a uniform. Some students who wear uniforms would even wear accessories that stand out from the crowd. Overall, the students will receive a higher level of learning, without the help of any peer pressure from the styles and designers, which the student wears. Uniforms are very helpful in helping out needy families. Financially, a typical family would be able to buy a uniform at a reasonable price.
Why Uniforms Should Be Mandated For as long as I can remember, I have always worn uniforms to school. Growing up I never had a problem with wearing uniforms; I actually liked them. A lot of people may be against school uniforms, but I am for it. School uniforms should be mandated in all public schools because it prevents bullying, it saves time, and it saves money. First, mandating uniforms in public schools can prevent kids from getting bullied.
He believes uniforms help parents as well as the students. The private schools are no longer the only schools requiring the students to wear uniforms. I agree with Kelly’s proclamation that uniforms increase studying and take pressure off of parents. I also believe that uniforms help students to see themselves differently from the inside instead of just the outside. Generally schools require students to wear uniforms for the desire to increase the students’ academic levels.
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.
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. Often students are being picked on at school because of the clothing that they are wearing.
Enforcing Dress Code Are you tired of being mistreated because of your appearance? Uniforms will help you solve this problem. Wearing uniform helps students pay more attention in school because they’re spending less time thinking about who looks better. Parents are saving money by not buying expensive designer clothes. Students who wear expensive clothing alienate those students who are less fortunate and cannot afford to.
It also can make it easier than in the past for a student who switches schools, because now schools broadly have to follow a similar curriculum. The national curriculum was introduced to enable assessment, which also helped to compile league tables. League tables (1988 education act) are another change that has helped the education system. League tables are used to compare the academic achievements of different institutions and parents can use them to decide which school they want their child(ren) to go to. Using league tables is a good thing as if you want your child to go to a good school, you can chose the one most suitable with good education and exam results.
Not many students are going to agree with a high school’s dress code policy, unless of course the dress code is no dress code. The issue of students wearing clothing that are outside of the dress code regulations is clearly an everyday kind of thing. By this point most would think that the administrative offices would have tried to do something to ease up the regulations, or at least find a better way to go about the situation when a student is dress coded. As cliché as it is, shouldn’t teachers and administrators be more concerned about our education than the clothing we wear? Yes, I do understand that the policy was written with good intentions; to keep students dressed in a manner that will represent the school well and also keep students focused on their learning not on how short the girl’s shorts are in the seat in front of them, but certain rules have gone to an unnecessary extent.
The Clark County School districts policies were not intending to squelch free speech but instead were aimed at ‘creating an educational environment free from the distractions, dangers, and disagreements that result when student clothing choices are left unrestricted,’ said Judge Michael Hawkins.” (Egelko) If there is not a distraction of what people are wearing, there is more of a chance that students would focus more on learning. School is not holding a fashion show! Students are the leaders of tomorrow and the outrageous outfits worn by students need not to distract them. According to an opposing viewpoints resource center it says, “Uniforms instill discipline, helps students focus on their studies and eliminate
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. This idea is called in loco parentis (pg. 378). This concept was once more important in schools than it is now but it has brought forth it idea that no matter the student, disabled or not, there needs to be a certain level of responsibility put on all students for their behaviors when they are at school. This would be a great chapter of the book for parents to read because it would help them to understand why the school is doing what it is doing.
