As it is easy to see in American schools, many children are easily distracted and tend to rank education low on their list of priorities. To combat this, school administrators are considering implementing a more professional dress code so that students will treat their education with more seriousness. The plan sounds good on paper. In real life, however, it will not work. Schools should not adopt a more professional dress code because professional clothes are too restrictive, the strict code will create numerous problems, and many families cannot afford professional clothes.
Girls feel as though they are looked at sexually by everyone (students and administrators) when they are called out for their clothing being ¨distracting¨ just because they are wearing clothes that express their personality or are comfortable but have a noodle strap. “Distracting” is a very vague term because one person might think something is completely distracting (even in a good, complementary way) but somebody else might not even think anything of a certain clothing item. Who is to determine whether or not something is distracting. When girls are constantly called out it lowers their self esteem. It also is hard to see a boy with a potentially distracting piece of clothing and not get called out on it as a girl would.
Dress codes also make people uncomfortable, which means they are attentive. Dress codes are a necessary aspect of school, and they help teenagers to focus more in school. Rules for how to dress prevent boys and girls from being distracted by fancy clothing. Often times, girls tend to focus on what other girls are wearing and how other girls may look super attractive or trashy. In addition, boys look at girls who are dressed in very releasing clothing.
The dress codes for school are very unconstitutional. A lot of schools are shutting down student rights and what they want to wear. The schools will overreact and the things that the school dislikes they will ban whether it is in the dress code or not. The dress codes that they put in to action are too broad. The things that express us the most are not allowed.
Mira attends a school which requires students to wear a uniform, but she finds it constricting, as it interferes with the ways she chooses to express herself through her appearance. As Mira explains how having a personal style makes her feel more comfortable in her own skin, she describes the restriction placed on her by the school’s required uniform: “But the uniform”, she explains “was meant to erase all individuality, guarding against anything that could be deemed ‘inappropriate attire for those representing the institution of St. Francis…’” (Scelsa, 9). Although deprived of self expression by the school’s uniform, Mira still attempts to make herself look as personalized as possible. Mira’s school uniform restrains her from personal expression, and she needs to find ways to express and maintain her individuality, and this is common throughout the novel. Her need to express individuality represents a common theme in coming of age.
But at the same time, sometimes that can be a disruption to the school. That's where the fine line comes in there. "C(The anatomy of dress code)This quote represents that without dress code people like teenage girls will take advantage of it in school because of how people look at them as.What I’m trying to say is that you should trying to care for what your kids could be doing now days because many people get dress coded and they would be mad because they would say that the dress code is very strict if they can’t even obey it. You could argue that“Can hinder creative expression in
Girls should have the freedom to wear what they want to school without being told to change or go home. How many of you have seen, heard, or have been told to change your clothes because they don't follow school dress code? Were most of those people girls? Girls are mostly targeted for their clothes because the school thinks they are distracting or inappropriate. We need to stop teaching girls to cover up because society can see their thighs or shoulders, and give them the freedom to go to school without being dresscoded or discriminated against.
For example, in today’s day and age it is consider forbidden for women to dress themselves in apparel that is short or skinny, because it is perceived as inappropriate. Young girls are taught to cover up every square inch of their body, because showing even the tiniest amount of skin can be seen as distracting. Teenagers are expected to not apply too much makeup because that can come across as looking fake, but, at the same time, are supposed to wear enough makeup so that they don’t come across as looking ill or immature for their age. And, if they slip up or decide one day to not follow these strict guidelines of society, they forever will be called names, made fun of, and ostracized from their peers. In fear of these unjust consequences happening to them, today’s young men and women are forced to abide by the strict norms that have been placed before them.
Some people who are not in favor of dress codes say dress codes should not be put in place in publicly funded schools because they limit a student’s freedom of expression. They are correct, dress codes do restrict a student’s freedom of expression. However, expression is not as important as a student’s ability to learn how to be well off in the adult world. The benefits of dress codes outweigh this one con. The first main reason to impose dress codes in school is that they decrease gang violence.
He would not only be judged for the skirt, but it would be to short which everyone is judged for how short the length of their clothes our and the tightness. Women are judged a lot on clothes length like, a girl in school cannot wear a tank top that is not three finger length. Even though a boy can wear whatever tank top they want, which shows girls can be sexualized at a young age but males are not ashamed of what they wear. The clothing of gender has not really changed, but still stereotype girls on the clothes they
