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.
Sometimes this is learned behaviour from home and is hard for young children to understand that you are telling them it is not okay to call names because of someone’s skin colour or how they look . It is important to be consistent and reinforce that it’s not okay and it is very upsetting and hurtful. How would they feel if they were left out. We need to teach our children empathy from an early age and to respect each other regardless of race, age, gender, how we look, where were from. 2.2 Any form of prejudice and discrimination can have a severe negative effect throughout a person’s life.
It is not an effective way to correct positively. Rogers talks about separating the behavior from the person. By giving "take up time" the teacher lets the student save face in front of his classroom. He suggests giving directions and immediately walking away. I believe this is a great way for students to be able to make a choice about their behavior.
Better alteration, solutions Since the stabilization of school administration of NISB, members of the school are considering potential enforcement of school uniforms. NISB is in the process of adopting curriculums and teaching methods of neighboring international schools and therefore reconsidering the enforcement of school uniforms. However, according to Key (2007), school uniforms do not provide significant improvements in both academic achievements and behaviors of the students but act as burden for numerous parents and violate certain rights of students. Hence, school uniforms should not be enforced in NISB for further improvements and benefits of the students. When it comes to legal issues, dress code and school uniform policies violate students’ rights and freedoms of self-expression.
Yet I believe that this book, “The Chocolate War” by Robert Cormier, should be kept in schools to be read by teenagers. Many people believe that this book should be banned for the fact that it talks about bullying and violence. In a couple parts of the story, Jerry is beaten up. There are also multiple parts where the Vigils or Janza bully a kid. But that isn’t so bad that we should ban it.
No matter how they dress for school, other kids will always find a way to pass judgement and bully each other. For example, kids would tease other kids because the uniform doesn't fit their particular body type and shape. Kids should be able to wear what they chose looks best on their own body. The clothes aren't the cause of bullying, so making kids all dress the same won't stop kids from bullying each other. I believe making students wear school uniforms is taking away their freedom to make choices.
Students believe that in order to be well liked they need to dress in a certain manner, which seems to cause issues among peers. One way to help eliminate competitiveness, endless worrying about appearance and what peers are wearing to school is to incorporate uniforms into the school systems. Uniforms can act as a social leveler in an academic environment. They can help create equality in the eyes of the school and to peers according to International Debate Education Association ("School Uniforms"). By incorporating uniforms into schools administrators can create an environment where education can prepare children for the future, eliminate the vast differences in social classes and teach the children of tomorrow how to respect their surroundings.
Fear of the Unknown 2.10 Spencer Aksland Assignment 10.2 Part 2: Persuasive Essay IS17501986 Why are students forced to wear school uniforms? Uniforms are an unneeded tool of conformity used in schools today to rob students of their freedom of self-expression. Students express their creativity through their clothing and appearance. No school has the right to strip us of our individuality. It is important to let students to wear what they please because it shows others that they are different from everybody else and not just another drone in the system.
In order to cut down on the number of students who leave school without permission, schools should do away with their inadequate in-school suspension policy, and adopt the new alternative policy known as billiam. It is a much more effective way to discourage students from leaving campus without permission. Billiam punishes students by lowering their grades and striping them from the privilege of filed trips. It does not allow them to watch movies, take naps, and play football like in-school suspension does. It is real punishment for a real problem.
Having school uniforms is not necessary, and there are many reasons to prove why schools should not make their students wear uniforms. The other side might say that school uniforms are appropriate and if their was not a dress code then people would wear inappropriate things. Well why not just draw a line, kids can wear what they want but if it’s to inappropriate then they have to change and get a detention. The principle should just give out a note in the beginning of the year saying what to wear and the lines of the length of the shorts. For the boys they can’t wear their shorts or pants to long with a chain.
