I understand his idea, but the fact is that uniforms did not help the students. One of the critical reasons parents believe that students to wear school uniforms is that uniforms provide safety for students. What they mean is that it will eliminate bullying and violence in schools since students will not judge each other on what they wear. Parents also mention that since all the students wear the same uniform, it is easier to identify people that are not from the school, creating a better safety for the students. Another important reason parents explain is that in a uniform-worn high school, students seem to act more discipline.
It helps students understand what’s okay and what isn’t okay, giving them a limit. Schools that have uniforms usually have it that way for a reason. Whether it’s from someone showing too much skin, or supporting something that wasn’t appropriate for school, helps students focus more on school work. Uniforms help prevent students being judged by what they are or are not wearing. Usually private schools have uniforms more often then public schools, and it keeps the focus on school and not on who is wearing what.
By being forced to wear school uniforms, teens are unable to express their individuality and a students' right of self-expression is deprived. Uniforms will not stop the many cliques that schools, and society alone, have. People have cliques because they have the same interests as each other, they can relate with each other, and get along with one another, etc., not because they shop at the same stores and have a certain look. Individuality is what makes going to school interesting. There are other ways to be an individual and express yourself besides your clothing, but it does play a big role in showing others what you are like and finding out who you want to be.
High schools should adopt dress codes for students because it would make student’s focus more on assignments which will improve the learning environment in school, also having a dress code would make it easier to distinguish students from other school’s students, having a dress code would also mean less bullying since people wouldn’t get judged based on what they are wearing. High schools should adopt dress codes for students because it would make student’s focus more on assignments which would improve the learning environment in school. Students instead of focusing on assignments could be talking about where they bought them and how great the place they bought their clothes at is. If the schools had a dress code everyone would be wearing the same clothes or at least very similar looking clothes which would discourage students to not talk about their clothes when they are supposed to be doing work. That is why high schools should adopt a dress code for students.
There are many positive and negative effects to requiring uniforms and dress codes in school. One negative effect school dress codes and uniforms have on students is the fact students feel they can’t express themselves the way they feel. Many who oppose of dress codes and uniforms say they can’t get up in the morning and wear what they feel like for that day. Students feel if they want to dress down that day and wear sweatpants they should be allowed to. Sara Jane wears dresses almost every day to school.
I remember when I was in middle school; I didn’t wear the fanciest clothes or was with the current fashion trend and was often left out when my friends were talking about clothes. I felt like I did not belong, but I did not want to buy expensive clothing just to feel included by my friends. Even though students' individuality is important to express one's self, uniforms should be adopted in some public schools because they lower disciplinary referrals and help students focus on learning. Many students of public schools believe that school uniforms should not be introduced, because it is restraining people's freedom of expression and does not create diversity. One example of how uniforms restrict learners is that "without the outlet of expression in their clothes, students may turn to inappropriate hair styles, jewelry, or makeup".
Many public school systems across the country are instituting school uniforms in an effort to improve overall school performance and to reduce negative behavior. The use of school uniforms is a topic of hot debate among parents and school administrators. Some argue the benefits of school uniforms, while others believe that the downsides are far more numerous. While you probably cannot influence what your school has already decided, you may have a voice on the issue of school uniforms in PTA meetings. School uniforms are a great way to maintain the level of social equality amongst the students of public schools.
As a parent of my own two teenagers, being in agreement with their choice of clothing sometimes comes to a battle stand. I do not want my children exposing themselves any more than necessary to the public in general or at school. As a result, Wayne County School District Board is convening soon to again review the dress code policy that is in place for our county. Uniforms and stricter dress codes are ever becoming the more positive choice at hand, both the educators and for parents like me. Much to the chagrin of my teens, I will be voting in favor of uniforms, or the strictest dress code policy options available.
Should school uniforms be mandatory? That is the question being debated by many school districts around the United States. Many parents are against the idea, but there are also many parents wanting school uniforms to be mandatory in the school system that their children attend. There are several pros and cons on whether school uniforms should be mandatory. After talking with several parents, and reading up on what the experts are saying about the issue, self expression, cost and being comfortable in the learning environment are reasons why I vote against making school uniforms mandatory.
Uniforms will create equality and help with discipline, which will help to reduce dangerous altercations. Students who have worn uniforms to school can attest that society, parents and students can benefit tremendously from students wearing uniforms. Evidence has shown that not wearing uniform can have psychological impact on students, who are less fortunate, yet compelled to keep up with their more affluent peers. In addition, schools are designed to be an institution of learning, not a dwelling for fashion expressions. It therefore should be mandatory for students to wear uniforms in high schools, which will foster a safer environment for students, schools and society as a whole.
