That is why I strongly believe uniforms should be enforced in every school whether public or private. I think that wearing school uniforms would help students do better in school for mainly three reasons. One is because they save valuable time, they can make school a lot safer for everyone, and they save money. First, school uniforms can save time because students, especially girls, don’t have to spend a lot of time trying to choose clothes to wear. In eliminating this time consuming task, students would have a lot more time to do more important things such as eating breakfast in the morning or doing homework.
Dress Codes in Schools Kelly Mennillo Com/220 Due: 4/22/12 Kelly Munoz Some people believe that our schools should require their students to adapt to a dress code to improve student behavior, enhance students’ self-confidence, and reduce differences among socioeconomic levels. Others may say that policies enforcing dress codes, or requiring school uniforms violate students’ First Amendment rights, and suppress individuality. The argument over school dress codes and school-uniform policies continue to rage in the meeting rooms, administrative officers, and classrooms of public schools throughout the country. School officials place dress code policies so there will be orderly dressing amongst the students’. Dress codes are important, but they are troublesome at the same time.
Kristin Nugen English III Mrs. Colclasure Due: September 23rd, 2010 Dress Code Dress codes can be very useful and they can be very annoying. Dress codes help make the school look good. Even if it’s a bad school a good dress code will make the school look very neat and tidy. I am glad we don’t have a dress code enforced in our school because this would be very hard for me not to be able to get cute clothes and have my own individual style. The pros of a uniform dress code are that it can reduce drama in the style area.
Public Schools Requiring Students to Wear Uniform Danika Washington English Composition2 (AXE1433k) Kari Lamanno 09/16/2014 With many public schools requesting students to wear uniforms, I feel this is a good idea because they will help safe money; they will help them be identified, and with security purposes, uniforms will also help students focus on the more important things school has to offer. I personally believe that schools requesting students to wear uniforms are a start to improving the school systems. Although, I am not saying that uniforms will solve all problems but I feel they will allow the students to feel comfortable within their surroundings which will help them focus on the more important things at school. Saving money is always a great thing; purchasing uniforms are much easier and less expensive than going to a mall or department store looking for designer or the most popular clothing. Wearing uniforms to school will allow students the ability to focus on what is going on within the classroom instead being involved in small talk about what another person is wearing.
Sociological studies show that school uniforms help to improve academic performance. People are apt to change their action depending on what they are wearing. Since school uniforms set a serious atomosphere in the classroom by removing distractions, students may achieve their goals easier. Also, teens are sensitive to their appearance. According to some parents, their children waste as much as an hour in front of the mirror getting ready for school.
This is important because no matter how the children are – rich or poor; healthy or unhealthy; fashionable or non-fashionable – we will all fit in together, we will be less distracted from our school work towards our fashionable clothes and we will stress less about what to choose to wear to school. To begin with, school uniforms will help us as students to all fit or blend in together. If we do not have any school uniforms, we will have the choice of what we wear to school. If someone is rich and another is poor, it most likely that the rich person will wear rich clothes and the poor person will wear poor clothes. As a result of this, the rich person might be the most popular person who is wanted by everyone, while the poor person is bullied, made fun of and left out by everyone.
Students in grades kindergarten through twelve should be required to wear uniforms because it creates school unity, is safer, and it helps students develop a higher self-esteem. School uniforms makes students feel more connected with their school and classmates creating school unity. When students pay more attention to what name brands their peers are or are not wearing, the school becomes segregated making the poor students seem as outcasts. However, "when the emphasis is off fashion," students become united as one and are able to focus more on learing ("Wear a School Uniform"). Wearing school colors can make a student feel more proud of their school.
Students who wear uniforms are more likely to not get in trouble in school. They would pay more attention and listen to the teachers. Moreover, “the U.S. Department of Education maintains that mandatory use of standardized dress reduces violence within the school” (Asaff). A second advantage of school uniforms is the cost of clothing. With a uniform policy, there would be no pressure to buy expensive, “in” clothing.
First, they protect us. You may be asking how clothing can protect you. It is much more difficult to conceal a weapon in a uniform that it is to conceal it in a pair of baggy jeans. In a way this could be good because there would be less crime on school grounds. Students would have a less chance of getting hurt or committing murderous acts.
So, I made up my mind to take an initiative to resolve this dilemma. Let’s take a look at school uniform pros and cons. Schools Uniform Pros: Let us see the pros of college uniforms (These are mostly from the PTA point of view). School uniforms are a good way to keep up a level of social equality amongst the students of public schools: The idea of knowing the social background is avoided. As such, personal biases aren’t formed and merit is the simplest deciding factor.
