Others believe it stifles individuality. However, in most cases it seems the pros outweigh the cons. School uniforms need to be implemented in public schools because they eliminate pressure to be trendy or fashionable, help school officials to keep campuses safe and allow students to focus more closely on academics. School age children are very impressionable and will often do whatever is necessary to be liked by their peers. Many times they will wear clothes that are inappropriate or pressure parents to spend extra money on designer labels.
I feel it is a good idea in theory but in some cases it is just not a reasonable solution to me. Some disabilities are so great that I think it would do a student a disservice to be placed in a regular class. One thing I can say I like about the inclusive classroom is the fact that students get to interact with students that they normally would not. I am torn between the two when it comes to which classroom setting I think is better. I think it should be up to an educational team on which situation fits the student the best.
In addition, some school heads believe that school uniforms vanishes social, economic and class divisions and inculcate a sense of pride in students(McCarthy, Lisa). A way bullying can be minimized is by enforcing the use of school uniforms. This way all students are wearing the same clothing, leaving no room for judgment. A large fraction of class time is
“Uniforms Rule” by Pat Wingert talks about some advantages and disadvantages of uniform and how that affects school safety and student’s behavior. As in article, uniforms affect students in so many good and bad ways. As educators, researchers, and experts think of dress code and uniform as very useful school system which can solve so many problems that school is facing today, students tend to respond as their freedom and rights are violated. I agree with them because for the students to accept uniforms it may take some time. I think if all school has uniforms system than students will more focus on study not on fashion.
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.
This shows that education is positive for society because if everyone is given an equal opportunity it means that young people all are able to do well if they put their mind to it. However, this could be seen as a negative because if everyone has an equal opportunity to do well and they all took that opportunity then the lower class jobs would become non-existent and this indeed would cause a problem for society. Schools reflect values of the wider society. Young people are required to act in a certain way in the classroom as they would be in the world of work. This shows
Becker concluded that it was much easier for middle class students to meet this ideal since they are better dressed and spoken than their working class counterparts. Thus, working class children are not going to be perceived as academic which will impact the opportunities available to them in school and therefore result in them having negative views of school influencing their attitudes and leading them to form anti-school subcultures. Paul Willis found that working class boys form sub cultures as a response to their limited opportunities. This leads to disengagement from education and underachievement. By contrast, many sociologists have found that the reason the effect of labelling is so great is due to the self-fulfilling prophecy this sociological explanation was examined by Ball he found that pupils who that pupils of similar ability were placed in different streams.
Generally schools require students to wear uniforms for the desire to increase the students’ academic levels. Many critics rebuttal that uniforms “infringe on student’s First Amendment right of free expression” (Kelly). Although the use of uniforms might take away some of a student’s freedom of picking what new outfit to wear every morning, to exercise the use of uniforms in a school environment gives the students more time to focus on their homework after school rather than
Contract Grading System Do you think that the grading system that we have now is right for everyone? For some people it works, but for others, it just doesn't. What would you do if you could choose the grade that you get in school? What if you knew exactly what the teacher wanted instead of sitting there trying to guess what they wanted? The contract grading system would be less stressful for both the students and the teacher, as well as, easier to understand, fair, and accurate.
Teachers judges students by obedience. Teachers favours the clever children more by giving them better text books, more help, wider feedback, detailed improvement and higher knowledge. Causes the teachers to become biased towards the students Some children are able to reject the label given. Internal factors and achievement Internal factors | How does it affect achievement | Labels given to students | Would believe that their label was chosen was true and would follow its path (Self-fulfilling prophecy) | Streams | Higher stream- being encouraged to do better and given all the help that it needed. Lower stream- feels dumb, do stops trying | Peer groups | Some friends can be more encouraging towards school than others | Processes inside school | Different processes can cause you to either become more motivated or not to do well.
