When there are codes limiting to what students can wear they won’t wear anything too indecent. Teachers, parents, and students will be more proud to represent their school when everyone looks nicely dressed and decent. Also when people outside of the school notices how well-dressed everyone in the school looks it’ll make a good impression. When the students look good, so does the school. Another positive effect school uniforms and dress codes have on students and their schools is it helps lessen social and economic
Another important reason parents explain is that in a uniform-worn high school, students seem to act more discipline. Uniforms can also get students more focused into education and give everyone equality. It can also give students an experience of wearing ties, blazer, or vast. They get to learn that golf shirts must be tucked in and how to tie a tie. The last reason parents point out is that they can spend less money on uniform than clothes.
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.
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.
This helps to keep kids from teasing students who parents cannot afford to buy the high price clothes. According to Anderson, “when students dress alike, “team-like” culture develops, and this promotes school spirit and positive self-images” (66). The wearing of uniforms also helps students to focus because it removes the fashion trends and competition distractions. “Students who wear uniforms can focus on academics, rather than on what others are wearing” (Walmsley 66). Secondly, uniforms save time and money.
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.
The dress code prevents this from happening, so the students will stop worrying about what everyone is wearing and more on learning. It creates a better learning environment which is what school is all about right? At OHS the teachers actually care about the students a lot. If they didn't then there would be no set dress policy and people could wear whatever they. wanted.
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.
Conformity in Schools Although many people think schools should be conformed to show who has control, conformity actually just takes away from students individuality as proven by, schools making students dress a certain way, what classes are mandatory, and telling students how to prepare for standardized tests, illustrating that conformity in schools makes students less individualized. Schools making students dress a certain way takes away from their individual expression. Some schools ban kids from wearing any kind of logos/symbols/colors because of gang affiliations. If such rules are so severe, students may take extreme measures to change their look. For example, wearing crazy accessories, hair style, decorating backpacks, etc.
“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.
