“YOUNGSTOWN, Ohio – Requiring students in urban public high schools to wear uniforms results in increased attendance, higher graduation rates and fewer student suspensions” (Campus Safety Staff). Schools with strict uniform policies have more retention rates from students which overall is great for students. Some may say that this limits expression, but this expression comes from education itself, and if students are attending school more they will learn to use this expression even further.The convenience of having something you can wear everyday without having to think about it keeps a students focus on strictly school when in
Gangs can be formed by clothing, like students wearing a certain color or symbol on their shirts. If all students wore school uniforms, there would not be a way for gangs to be formed. Gangs can harass others and cause them to be afraid to come to school, which would lower their attendance and their grades. Bullies also play a big part in school violence. Students are constantly being picked on about their clothing.
(Kohn). What this means is that nothing probably can stop violence and bullying amongst schools even if everyone looks the same. Think of it this way, you are a student at a public school and bullying is a problem. The principal then decides in order to stop it they require mandatory school uniforms. A week goes by, and the bullying still goes on even though everyone looks the same.This proves that adding a small thing won’t eliminate a huge problem that’s been going on for many
Most schools would suspend both students right away. What if one student in the fight had a good home life, his parents punished him, and he never got suspended again, but maybe the other student’s parents did not care, he would just simply get some time off of school, and continue to act out. If all students were talked to about what they did wrong and punished inside of school, there may be a chance to drop the percentage of kids that get in trouble. Yes, it may not be the school’s responsibility to punish the kid, but if they do not and neither do the parents, then who will? Giving out school suspensions may give the student that needs to be punished the most, time off from school, which is what they would prefer.
Schools can develop programs or activities that include drawing, music, dance, martial arts, theater, sculpture and even crafts. In conclusion, school uniforms benefit students in a number of ways. School uniforms are cost-efficient, promote equality among students and reduce the distractions that don’t relate to school work. Even Bill Clinton, former President of the United States of America said that uniforms are a “better” choice for students. I strongly believe that school uniforms should not be banned from schools and I encourage other schools who don’t require school uniforms to try as uniforms create a better learning environment for the future leaders of the
So, in conclusion these are two good reasons why some people are against school uniforms. My first rebuttal to the first argument that people against school uniforms (which the argument would be “it takes away freedom of expression “) is again, kids can still accessorize with certain things when they must wear uniforms. The Administrators at schools aren’t requiring uniforms to take away kid’s freedom of expression they are there because kids feel more comfortable knowing that they are all wearing the exact same thing so that there will be less bullying or that the more school spirit that the kids bring to school each day that they come to school. There are so many ways that kids can express
With uniforms in hand, after school clothes won't be wasted, school uniforms will be only used in school. School uniforms are exactly that, a uniform, instead of a fashion statement. School Uniforms can even limit some of the pressures that keep students from wanting to attend school. Some students in daily life in school face peer pressure with the outfit their in, or what others are in. Peer pressure can occur because of clothing, students get so pressured about the issue and decide not to go to school.

This lessens differentiation and nervousness, which then results to the student being able to do his or her list of activities. To support this point, 5 Reasons Why Wearing a Proper Uniform is Important (2015) states that a dress code policy saves a lot of time and effort because the person doesn’t have to choose again and again the clothes to be worn at school, thus preserving his or her time for other productive
I understand shootings have happened in the past at schools, but I don’t think having police officers in the school is going to stop someone from shooting someone if they really wanted. It seems to me that the police officers are affecting more things in the school than actually helping. If the police officers are going to stay in schools I think they should only interfere when they are needed, for example when there is violence happening. I think that punishment should be by the schools principle or school board, like it used to be. I cannot seem to understand why I police officer would arrest a four year old child, I feel like they should be smarter than that and should know
