For example from the article “School Uniforms- Pros and Cons” it says that there is less peer pressure to fit in when they’re not wearing the trendy brands and they’re all wearing the same thing. From the article “Pros and con” it states “Students always want to wear the “popular” brand of clothing and they talk about it too which gets them off topic” (Hertzler,1). By having school uniforms students will stay more focused on schoolwork instead of what the “popular trend” or brand is for that moment. Students like talking about in class what style or type of clothing they’re getting. Usually kids also compliment each others clothes which would get them off topic and not paying attention in class.
Next this is a free country and nobody should be able to tell you what you can or can't wear. If your child gets sent home for dress code issues then I would be reporting it because it needs to change. It may not be a big problem for some people but for majority it is. When there is ⅓ student getting discipline for dress code that should be a little hint to talk about changing the dress code.
For day 9, I would change the lesson to "Where are All the People Like Me" instead of "Why are All the People Like Me". Although the goal of the lesson would be same - to examine who is overrepresented/underrepresented in media like magazines and books - the lesson would flow a little differently. In Starr 's school majority of the students would focus on who is underrepresented and why, while at the Carter family 's school students would focus on who is overrepresented and why. The other lesson I would change is day 20. For Starr 's school, this lesson would focus more on learning how not to label others based on appearance.
Opportunity brings desires and expectations in people’s life. However, never-ending opportunities or choices not only bring frustration in people’s lives but also make them saddened for prolong period. In “The Paradox of Choice” by Barry Schwartz argue that more is less, for to have more doesn’t mean it will meet people expectations. Every little thing is developing so vastly in today’s time, and people are running behind to achieve it. However, they don’t understand the fact that they are putting themselves in a pressure, where they have to make a decision.
In Penrod’s Anti-Intellectualism: Why We Hate the Smart Kids, Penrod provides a brief summary of how teens are affected by their peers ridiculing and judgement. *insert supporting (integrated) quote from the article* From this, it is clear to see that it isn’t harmless what is being done in these situations. Kids are going home from school feeling broken, embarrassed, and outcast by those who were once their friends. Anyone can tell stories about how high school is all a popularity contest of different cliques, but no one is ever really willing to talk about how extreme this contest really is. There have been several news articles chronicling the bullying of kids who are designated as ‘too intelligent’ and are thus being bullied because of it.
The second article by Laura Clark, is more embracive towards the uniform idea, as she claims throughout the text that uniforms lessen bullying, increase the individual student’s behaviour and concentration and simply make the daily triviality of picking clothes disappear. The last article written by Suzanne Moore, shares the negative sides of wearing uniforms in school. Moore informs us how the idea restricts children and teenagers from doing certain activities and the uniform made her feel “dispirited by the ridiculousness of it” (p. 1, l. 12-13). There are plenty of reasons to why the uniform should be abolished; uniforms are expensive, many good schools don’t have uniforms and children bully each other because of their accessories instead of their clothes.
Firstly, school uniforms reduce the distraction in the classroom. According to “UNIFORMS: are they a good fit?” it states, “Many of these students say dress down days are somewhat distracting”(Marsha 36). This evidence proves that at a school where school uniforms are usually worn, they get to have a free day where they can wear whatever they want, but even then, one, just one day, students claim for it to be a little distracting.
The essay “In Praise of the ‘F’ Word” by Mary Sherry explains some flaws Sherry has noticed in our education system. These observations are from her teaching perspective, and from her son’s own experience in high school. Sherry claims that some students that have earned a high school degree should not have because they are “semi literate.” She starts out her essay by stating this bluntly, but further explains herself as it goes on. Sherry is an adult literacy grammar teacher, and often faces students that wish they could have had a more beneficial experience in high school.
School Dress Code is Sexist School dress code has gotten out of hand, limiting young girls and boys on what they can wear to school. Telling young women that they are distractions in class because of what they wear. Girls get sent home because of their outfits it makes it seem like the administration is not worried about whether or not they get an education. Many types of clothing d or that have such as leggings, low cut shirts, and shorts have been banned or have restrictions. It is hard to find clothes that meet all these requirements.
Many students that know uniforms will be beneficially, but don’t agree with school uniforms will continue to disagree with implementing them. It can be easily agreed that school uniforms may take away their self-expression in school, but what matters more in school is the way of learning. It can also be agreed that many students do not accept the self-expression of their classmates and make fun of them. Students, parents, and school administration should be able to recognize the benefits that school uniforms come with.
There are some students that feels that dress code is needed but also thinks it is a waste of time. Some students like dress code because it doesn 't show their social class to everyone and makes them feel the same. “ I believe
This is one of those debates that happens over and over again. My judgement on school uniforms is a yes and a no. It would stop bullying over clothing but it basically tells the kids that they can’t express themselves at school. School uniforms would stop distractions but the children would feel like they can’t show their differences in clothing like some kids like colorful stuff and some have traditional clothing and some like certain things that they like to dress in. School uniforms are not a bad idea but the flaw is how the uniforms affect the students minds.
Dress codes are more distracting than the clothes the students wear and if the students get distracted, it’ll be their fault for not paying attention in class because they are supposed to be paying attention to the teacher and not the clothing on others. The dress codes even ban religious clothes! In Kentucky, a 14 year old girl was suspended for wearing a headscarf or a hijab.
It has the possibility to boost gpas. Removing students preforming these acts will also improve student’s mindset, who do not perform these acts. Lessening tension felt in school by reducing stressed students from dangerous people or the possibility of being peer pressured into drugs. This will over all improve the function of the school, and its popularity among students who only want to go to school for an education.
Another reason standardized tests aren 't a good way of teaching children is that they are stressful and pointless. Studies were done that show standardized tests cause sever anxiety and stress, even in the sharpest students. Researcher Gregory J. Cizek says that these tests cause gripping anxiety, causing younger students to vomit, cry, or both(7). Another example, NCLB standards are different in every state, meaning the comparison between states education is pointless. Evidence shows that in some states, students of the same grade level were shown to be answering mostly open-ended and essay questions, while in other states, students were answering mostly multiple-choice and short answer questions(120).More evidence shows that the multiple choice format some states are using for standardized tests are a useless assessment tool.
