Everyone in your whole class looks the same. Also it’s really hard to wear accessories with the uniforms. These are just a few reasons I feel wearing uniforms doesn’t allow us to express who we are. Last but not least, it’s just simply boring. I mean who would want to wear the exact same outfit for the whole school year?
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.
School uniforms can also be a very uncomfortable fashion that students would not take a liking to. They also won’t be the “quick fix” that many people think they are. The first reason uniforms should not be required is that most schools across the country believe uniforms take away from an individual’s identity, so they don't require their students wear them. In today's world a person’s identity and having a good sense of self is important to the diversity that Americans have shown in the past. In schools that require uniforms the student body all look like the same person, very bland and boring people.
According to some parents, their children waste as much as an hour in front of the mirror getting ready for school. Sometimes, it is main reason why their children are late to school. In addition, it can cause conflict between parents and their children. Uniforms, thus, save students time in the morning by eliminating the time they use to choose what they should wear. They help students focus on what is more important than fashion and beauty trends.
I understand that some people feel that uniforms are a waste of time, but they can never tell anyone why. It seems as though whatever the schools try to do is always wrong. Students’ ability to get dressed in the mornings has become less and less of a hassle because they do not have to make big decisions on what to wear or what not to wear. The only decision they face is if it is hot or cold enough to wear pants, skirts, or shorts. I know that with my high school requiring school uniforms I was able to wake up an hour later for school.
The Language Police Throughout “The Language Police,” the angered author, Diane Ravitch, speaks her mind on the issue of censorship. Censorship shelters students from the real world and gives them a false sense of reality. Ravitch believes that students are being censored to such an extreme that their freedom is being limited. The goal of the language police is not just to stop us from using objectionable words but to stop us from having objectionable thoughts (Ravitch 158). The language police are restricting what students learn by removing anything that may appear controversial.
Mary Adams Mr. O’seland ENGL 1113/0179 5, December 2011 Hot Topic Essay In recent years, many schools across the United States have adopted uniforms for their students to help create a safer environment and to direct their attention away from “what’s hot” in fashion to academic performance. A majority of the schools are only implementing uniforms because of the possible benefits from doing so. They base this decision only on the positive statistics recorded from other schools. However, there are plenty of negative statistics that show that uniforms in public schools may not be such a good idea. So the question is, should uniforms be worn in public schools?
As I said before, its 2012 and many people voice their opinion and everyone isn’t God fearing human beings. Some may feel as though their rights are being ignored. As it was in my school you had to recite the Pledge, whether you liked it or not. I have heard of things such as if the child is an atheist or doesn’t want to say it could sit down or be sent out the room while that time is going on. But if we are a country of democracy why should someone be forced into reciting or doing something they don’t feel believe in.
Persuasive essay School Uniforms are in a way very unique and different, but what is really the reason that students should have to wear them? The United States is supposed to be a country of freedom and individuality. Each and every person in the world is different, and by making people dress the same they cannot express themselves fairly the way that they would like to. It is sensible for schools to be able to make dress codes, but telling students they have to all dress the same is absolutely ridiculous. Having school uniforms is not necessary, and there are many reasons to prove why schools should not make their students wear uniforms.
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.
