First, schools should not have dress codes because they target girls and limit freedom of expression. Dress codes ¨...reinforce that girls are expected to act to a different standard than boys, and that boys are incapable of controlling themselves around girls,” said the Huffington Post. For example, in some schools girls have to wear a one-piece in the pool but guys can go shirtless. Dress codes also limit
Schools are not allowed to strip away this basic human right just because the conversations causes discomfort to them. As long as the students do not cause any chaos in school or threaten someone’s safety they should be allowed to say as they please which is what the case settled. Of course, not everyone believes it should be like
Most of the rights for Pakistani Women aren’t quite rights but restrictions. First, women must follow the code of purdah by covering their head and face. As Fazlullah rose to power, he made the rights for women quite a bit more strict, banning women from the public. At one point, Malala and her Mother were stopped in their cars by a Talib who told them they were bringing shape because they were not wearing burqas. Because women had limited rights, going to school as a female was frowned upon by most.
This is limiting the ways we show our individuality amongst our peers. School is a place where kids should be able to express themselves, not be put in regulated clothing. School is probably one of the only place kids can express themselves. Kids should not have to wear uniforms because uniforms take away our freedom of expression.
We should not be shaming a person for being comfortable in their skin, we should be supporting. Instead of shaming us girls for our bodies, teach the boys that we should not be seen as sexual objects. Girls should not feel guilty and be forced with the responsibility to not distract boys from their school work because of the clothes she is wearing. If you send a girl home or force her to change because what she is wearing is “distracting the male students” then you are telling her that hiding her body is more important than earning her education. That she must cover her skin so boys can be given a distraction free learning environment.
“All students should be able to dress comfortably for school and engage in the educational environment without fear of or actual unnecessary discipline or body shaming,” the code states in its “values” section,” (McCombs). There are a total of 269,995 schools in the United States and just a hand full of them have realized the insufficiency of their dress codes. Admittedly, girls’ have the potential to be scandalous; however, school dress codes shouldn’t be so sexist towards them because it allows contemptuous behavior, affects women scholars’ education, and it is extremely outdated. While it’s true that school dress codes were made to ensure the decency of each individual’s body image, it has been often used by students to target each
Scholl intentionally disregards norms to retain her individuality and rebelliousness. Despite being knocked down by her teachers and principal, Scholl refused to have her spirit and resistance completely smothered, “Later, Sophie would not buckle again on her political views: In another letter to Fritz, she wrote, ‘I don't like to think about it, but soon there is going to be nothing left but politics, and as long as it's so confused and evil, it's cowardly to turn away from it,’" (Campbell Bartoletti). Showing her resilience and distinct identity and will, Scholl believes that it is cowardly to not take action against adversity. Although she knew that having and voicing her opinions was heresy, and that Fritz could turn her in, she still remained confident and unwavering about doing the right thing. Scholl made an impact on the world because she held onto her personality, and without her iconic and rebellious attitude towards life, she would not have made nearly the difference in the world.
While there is some truth to this argument, it is wrong because only teachers think of this and not parents who are the ones who have to pay for uniforms. For example,you don’t want to buy something for your child that they won’t want to wear or use, especially if they don’t help with absolutely anything. To sum up the fact, many of the people who agree on not having school uniforms stand strongly. However, they are completely convinced they will work wonders for two main justification bullying can’t be eliminated and clothing can’t boost performance in academic environments. This is true due to all statistics stated by many studies, if we want to live in a world where kids want to be able to be themselves everywhere then we must think more deeply about not just our thoughts on uniforms.
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
School Uniforms should not be required for all students to wear. Students of all ages and genders must learn to make decisisons for themselves and determine wether those decisions were right or wrong, each day a person wakes up they most likely throw on clothing before heading outside, when they do so they determine what style they prefer and what reaction they are looking for from others. When a student decides to dress up a certain way, they are usually trying to fit in or stand out, students feel good when they are dressed the way they prefer. When others accept the way a student looks, the student is most likely to become more confident and hard working throughout school hours, getting more school work done or learning to be independent and gaining self control. Former California high school principal Dennis Evans says teenagers who decide what to wear in the morning are developing descion-making skills and learning to take responsibility for their choices in life, many students agree.
