People should have different opinions and this is mine and many of the communities opinion. With so many stress about getting good grades and getting everything done on time, we shouldn’t have to deal with dress codes and to wear uniforms. Students already have been going through a lot in the school hours. I think that if we all stand together and convince schools to not have a dress code and uniforms we can. In this case we shouldn’t have to deal with dress
Are Plaid Skirts and Button Down Shirts Really Necessary? Imagine having to wear a plaid skirt or a button down shirt and tie every single day of school. Being forced to wear a specific uniform to a public schools can severely impact students and their families. With the growing amount of public schools choosing to require uniforms, more and more people are speaking out against this action. Students should not be required to wear uniforms in public schools because they limit self-expression, they cause students to feel self-conscious, and they are expensive.
Uniforms help students to prepare for when they leave school and may have to dress smartly or wear a uniform in their future jobs, they gain responsibility to dress smartly, and dress appropriately. It brings so many benefits for so many reasons. Parents don't even have to spend so much money in clothing for their students. If students wear non school uniforms to school, their clothing gets dirty, and over used, when students go out after school, they won't have clean clothes to go out with. With uniforms in hand, after school clothes won't be wasted, school uniforms will be only used in school.
The limitations for school uniforms are more strict then ever now just because they type of clothing that young kids or young adults are wearing today. School uniforms limits students freedom of expressing themselves. All over the world students are required to wear a uniforms just to make the school look good or have a appropriate professional look. Not enough students has a chance to have a self image
Dress codes are an enormous part of a high schooler’s everyday life, with over half of K-12 schools having some type of dress code (“Should Schools Have Dress Codes” 1). Even though these schools vary in the strictness of their dress code from no rips in jeans to standardize uniforms, the driving force is the same. Many adults believe that students need to learn how to dress appropriately, and that introducing and maintaining dress codes will stop distractions and greatly reduce bullying (“Should Schools Have Dress Codes” 1). However, in this increasingly uniform world, students should be able to express their uniqueness in any way that they can. Dress code rules teach students that their individuality is not important in addition to discouraging creativity.
There is also the burden and additional expense to parents with students wearing dress codes for school and the other clothes after school which could double family budgets. Students can express their style and identity through their clothes. Students would like the freedom to keep up with latest styles and fashion and having dress codes takes that away. Lee Rowland, “School dress codes are saying that the self-identity that you want to express through your clothes doesn 't belong here.”(Rowland 1). Having a dress code sends a negative message that a person self-identity doesn 't matter and all that matters is focusing on their education.
School boards must understand that, “... school uniforms may well be a financial burden to poorer families, who will be forced to buy uniforms in addition to regular clothing… (Source B)” As some find it hard to have enough regular clothing to get them through the school year, it would be unfair to require them to buy a whole new set of clothing in order to attend public school. It would not only negatively affect the families, but also, “Another cost factor… is the increased burden on administrators, staff, and faculty to enforce policies. (Source D)” With a stricter dress code, comes stricter enforcement, for there is no point to a dress code if it is not executed. Goods such as “Loner” clothing would be a required purchase of schools for those students who do not fit the dress code, but cannot change, and a plethora of rules would need to be decided and put in order, such as: what length of skirts/shorts will be the regulation, tools for measuring precisely, what colors will be worn, jewelry or no jewelry?, type of socks allowed, shoes allowed, pants, even if nail polish will be permitted or not. It all puts a mental burden on administrators, costing them their peace of mind.
Wearing uniforms is a controversial topic that many students, teachers, and parents have been debating since school uniforms were first proposed in the 90s. In today’s world, debates surrounding uniforms are becoming increasingly controversial and a direct fix might not be found, but compromises can be made that help benefit specific schools. School uniforms will be successful in increasing students’ willingness to learn, decreasing chances of displaying signs of gang relations, as well as curbing racial discrimination. Implementing school uniforms into more schools will not just keep order and sophistication, but will also benefit student behavior as seen in various studies. It can be seen that “uniform and dress code proponents argue that they
I believe this because I believe that school uniforms should not be enforced in public schools for the reason being it 's a public school which is supported by funds from the public. Why should we fund the school and have to fork over more money to have their kids wear uniforms. My reasons for say this is because school uniforms are high in costs, they don 't stop bullying but may increase violence, and their taking away their rights as a student. Think about this would you want to use your money to fund your kids’ public school just to be forced to pay more money for them to have the rights as a U.S. Citizen be taken
Have you ever thought about the many ways that a lot of students each day get in trouble and are out of dress code? There are so many ways that kids get in trouble in school due to what they wear. So, what are some ways that you can prevent kids from getting in trouble at school from their outfits? School uniforms can be a way for preventing the large number of students that get in trouble. I think that schools should make everyone wear school uniforms because they are such a big help to schools and students with the dress code and gangs that wearing uniforms creates a better environment for kids to learn in.
