We also need to reinforce other school issues, but the mst thing is school dress code. 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.
Students were expected to maintain a neat appearance, and until the second half of the decade they generally complied without much complaint. The impact of the mod look was felt a few years into the decade in school wear. Young women wore as high a miniskirt as they could get away with, and brighter colors and patterns filled the school halls. But the first half of the 1960s, especially in high schools, was characterized by a general tendency to maintain a conservative manner of school dress codes. As the mod look became more standard, and as the tremors of the anti establishment sentiments of the latter part of the decade started to be felt, many high-school and college students alike quickly adopted it.For the first half of the twentieth century the big designers targeted adult women since they or their husbands had the money to spend.
The following expectation is written, “dress in appropriate attire which does not distract or offend others.” By changing the uniforms and creating a guideline for the students, we can encourage both individuality and professionalism. The students still have a choice as to the color, style and brand.This issue takes place in a majority of schools systems. In my school, Windham High, we have a uniform. They have changed the “appropriate attire” multiple times over the past year. We are only allowed to wear maroon, blue, white and gray with our school logo.
Children are placed under tremendous stress to “fit in” or be accepted during school. When students are dressed exactly like their peers, they automatically have something in common. Simultaneously, a first impression cannot be ruined due to what a child is wearing. Consequently, students see each other as equals and are slower to judge each other
The students just need to get the help. As long as the students are getting the help, there’s no point in the no pass, no play rule. For school teams, the coaches are typically teachers. The teachers understand the struggle students are going through, “Coaches are very understanding about a student putting schoolwork ahead of sports. They will be understanding if a student needs to attend extra help after school before coming to a practice.” Students can balance school and sports, they just need to find the balance first.
No matter what a student wears to school it doesn’t block or contribute weather a student will learn or not, so if a student wants to wear a crop top to school they should be able to wear it if a girl decides to wear shorts to school she should be able to wear it. Sometime boys might feel it’s too hot to come to school in a t-shirt and decides to wear a tank top he should be able to wear it and not have to serve a consequence. No matter how much schools have dress codes students will try to outbreak those rules. At the end of the day students come to school to get an education, students use their brains to learn and not what they wear to school. According to “Dacula high school dress code” students are not allowed to wear multiple things to school like shorts, crop tops, tank tops, rip jeans and trench coats and the list goes on.
If public high schools are going to adopt a dress code, the dress code will prepare the students much earlier for that change. If a typical public high school student heads to work, they would not feel comfortable with the dress code that the workplace requires as they are not used to it. However, if the same student is used to the dress code, they would feel more comfortable and at more ease with the workplace as they dealt with a dress code in high school. This is one reason why public high schools should adopt dress codes for the students.
While with a uniform you wear the same thing all year. Another example is, “When everyone is dressed the same, worrying about what you look like isn’t so important. There is no competition about being dressed in the latest trend, which would put a great deal of financial pressure on students and parents. Potential bullies have one less target for their insults; it’s hard to make fun of what someone is wearing when you’re dressed exactly the same” (Spencer) This evidence conveys that with everyone at a school wearing the same thing this gives bullies one less thing for them to make fun of. When you take away bullies “fuel” this leaves less kids being attacked by them.
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
