Due to the fact that the curriculum, instruction, assessment, school funding, and desegregation aren’t made for ALL students to succeed we as educators must use what we know about our students, education, and history to inform our teaching. It is important to use the experiences and culture of our students (getting to know them) to make our instruction more relatable. In classrooms students shouldn’t feel like their stories aren’t heard. Educators must construct a positive classroom environment so that students will feel comfortable being themselves and taking risks with their language (ELL) which includes ALL students not just one population. This might mean making changes or adding to the existing curriculum.
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.
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
Wearing uniforms is a debated topic talked about all over America, even across the entire world. I strongly agree that uniforms should be worn because it decreases the chances of bullying and creates a badge of pride and gives an identity for the school. Kids wearing their own clothes could cause more children to be bullied by others.Some kids might not even have clean wearable clothes, they could be torn or have holes in the fabric. The bullying could cause depression and in some extreme cases have lives be lost. When you send your child to school you want them to be in a safe learning environment and never want be in harm 's way, right?
Another benefit of uniforms that one may not realize is, that uniforms force students to dress their age. In this day and age, it can be difficult to keep children mentally youthful and acting age appropriate. School uniforms teach students to dress adequately, a necessary and useful skill that will be valuable later in life. School uniforms positively affect schools because they create a neutral atmosphere. Children are placed under tremendous stress to “fit in” or be accepted during school.
School uniforms should be required in all public schools across the united states because, school uniforms reduce the amount of distraction in the classroom, school uniforms create a positive, no violence culture and climate on campus, and lastly school uniforms end the competition between the rich and poor, weather it being about who has the nicest or most new up to date 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. It also states from the same article, “Sixth grader tiffany gets sent to the principal's office because
Henry Ford once said, “Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress. Working together is success” (Brainy Quote). From here, the concept of inclusive education, including students with and without learning disabilities as peers in the same classroom, originated. The aim of this type of education is to get students with learning disabilities involved in the society. Teachers and fellow students will also provide help for students with disabilities; in this way, students with learning disabilities will be motivated to study as they feel that they are a part of a group instead of being isolated in special places.
Why We Shouldn’t Have A Dress Code? Students should be able to wear whatever kind of cloths they want to school because its freedom of expression. There shouldn’t be a dress code mainly because some people can’t afford the clothes the school wants the students to wear. Then there parents would have to worry about there kids getting in trouble at school. The kids should be able to dress the way they want and not have to worry about buying clothes you can’t even wear to school.
Blue Valley should adapt a school uniform policy for many reasons. One of them being it prevents distraction and evens out the social status between students. The second reason is that studies have showed that attendance and test scores have improved when uniform policy is implemented. The last reason is that it has stopped most crime and bullying in schools. This is why Blue Valley schools should adapt a school uniform policy.
There are ways to better a school 's atmosphere and to correct or even eradicate certain behaviors that are plaguing the lives of children and teens alike; the path that some high schools and middle schools are taking is the implementation of uniforms. In recent years, it seems, there is a lack of respect between students and those of authority. This behavior can become disruptive to the dynamics of a classroom setting. This could be due to a number of means, from lack of discipline for unacceptable behavior, to a student feeling that they are entitled due to the clothes that they wear. Uniforms could prove useful in the reversal process of such an epidemic in today 's schools.
