Lately, most kids or pre-teens are starting to dress to old for what age they really are. A solution that is by having school uniforms, they provoke that problem. School uniforms should be required for public schools. They have been increasing in public schools for the past five years. One in five public schools require school uniforms.
They may seem like they help, but school uniforms aren't what we're looking for. They are both a restriction on student rights and schools don't have the power to enforce clothing on students. Making uniforms mandatory is useless and won't solve the problem.- (Forster and Geier 1.) In agreement with this statement, some may argue with this saying some kids can afford better clothes, and it's distracting, etc. People make money in order to get nice things like that, because someone doesn't like something or can't get something doesn't mean they should take it away for others.
Students should be responsible with what they wear it might not be perfect but they shouldn't be told exactly what to wear. The reason why we shouldn’t have a dress code is because of how many people get disciplined for the things they wear. The reason why students get sent home is
That makes teams stronger. Fees also make students put a higher value on playing”. This is
One of the reasons of why we should keep uniforms is the fact that it would ‘cost less instead of buying clothing all the time throughout the school year (5). Students also wouldn't have to worry about getting sent home because if there outfit isn’t dress code appropriate. ‘There is also studies showing that students can focus easier because there not paying attention to what everyone else is wearing and they can actually focus on what their school work(6). Also another good thing about school wearing uniforms is the fact that you won't be able to wear gang or inappropriate words or pictures on a shirt. Even though the students have to wear uniforms depending on the school they are still allowed to accessorise there uniforms with a scarf or a different color sock and they can accessorise their
Being in high school is time consuming. With some high schools adding community service as a requirement to graduate, it puts on more time for students. Yes, community service is good on college applications and it helps the environment and what not, but it should be optional. High school has enough requirements which includes certain classes that a student must take. Volunteering should not be mandatory because students already have enough responsibilities; they might have jobs, the need to be social and healthy, and if it’s supposed to be voluntary then it shouldn’t be forced.
In the passage, Public School Uniforms: The Pros and Cons for Your Child by Grace Chen, it states "ACLU 's argument for the First Amendment, argue that uniforms stifle a student 's need for self expression. Students need to be encouraged to embrace their individualism, and uniforms deny that self-expression... Without the outlet of expression in their clothes, students may turn to inappropriate hair styles, jewelry, or make-up." Uniforms go against our basic freedoms. Furthermore, when teenagers can 't wear the clothes they want, they can rebel in other ways. Whether that is through language, actions, jewelry, etc.
In conclusion, school uniforms are a great thing to have in schools. Even though there is that argument on whether school uniforms will violate the right of self-expression to students it will continue either way. At the end of the day students should see that there are more positive effects with uniforms rather than negative ones. It should be taking in consideration that the clothes a student wears will not determine the ability of learning, but why not pick school uniforms that can help stop current school
Boys and girls can freely express themselves without “fear of embarrassment or feelings of inadequacy [that] may accompany the co-ed classroom experience” (Source #3). In single-sex classrooms, students also do not have to worry about impressing the other gender. For example, many students from both genders place much attention on their physical appearance, sometimes in hopes of impressing the opposite gender. Students can instead focus on their studies and schoolwork in a single-sex educational environment since many of these schools require a school uniform. Even if a single-sex school does not enforce a uniform, students typically are not as keen to wishing to impress those of the same gender.
Students would not feel the stress of what to wear. They would feel apart of the school, which would decrease the number of cliques and allow all students to feel accepted among their peers. Therefore, the dress code would be beneficial for all students.
