This program would be a bad idea because with all the money we would be paying students with we could actually buy school supplies. Another reason why this is a bad idea is because students should not be getting paid for doing the right thing. Lastly, students could put weapons or drugs into someone’s locker and snitch on them. To begin, saving money on school is better than paying students for snitching because we could get more school supplies. Instead of kids getting video games, candy, ECT.
Having a mandatory uniform limits teenager’s creativity and their expressive side. Lastly, the uniform can be harmful to schools image because some schools may have nicer uniforms than others causing other schools to envy them and not feel equal and uniforms are all about making everyone equal. Students will most likely be in their uniforms after school hours. If some students are caught up in bad behavior it can make the school look bad and gain a reputation. Also, when students don't agree with the uniform they wear many of them alter
There are some really strong contradictions in Devlin's article. He says that “helping students appreciate and welcome differences in culture, racial heritage, and personal identity, are increasingly hard to teach.” Yet Devlin’s solutions offer up ideas like enforcing a “dress code”, having gender segregated classes, making the students where I.D tags so they would be easily identified by cameras, having more drug sniffing dogs, and random spot checks of cars and lockers. Turning the schools into a police state does not set a good example for tolerance. Dress codes do not show tolerance. Gender segregation is not going to teach men and women to work together as
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.
It would be a shame to let these opportunities for the students to lessen. Closing the high school would hurt the community especially the parents. The parents will have to send their children to other schools because parents will seek better opportunities in other school. Students from Bryant are involved in school activities and
You may be thinking that teachers are unable to stand up to students or outside threats under current school conditions, but that doesn't mean we have to take these extreme measures. Since school districts want to minimize violence in schools, enhancing security would be the best option; Adding guns to a school environment will only increase the amount of violence. Despite the unruly shooting of young children in Newtown Connecticut,
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.
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. 4). Joie L Green, Superintendent for Mahanoy Area School District (personal communication, September 4, 2012), said of parental and student arguments against stricter dress codes, “It will make them (the students) rebel more than they already do”. She continues to speak of the wonderful changes that the dress
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.
As violence increases, the pressure for a safe and orderly school does the same. I believe that the first step that we can make to ensure school safety is to work with the students and explain that it takes everyone to establish a safe school. Violence in school has changed from bloody noses to pulling out a bloody gun and shooting an innocence person. , Children are so desensitized to violence from TVs, video games, and especially their environment. Young teenagers tend to imitate what they see exposing them to violence before they can understand it does not help them Violence just destroys their future by ending up in prison or the grave at an early age.
