One example could be, if there is an intruder in their school it will be easier to catch them since they obviously aren’t wearing the same color or style as everyone else.The intruder will be spotted out easier and will be a much and faster way of dealing with the situation. Even though it may not be safer, they can deal with what is going on faster so it could result in less people getting injured. Also it’s easier for the staff/ administration to enforce a dress code. When children are at a school without a dress code people wear whatever they want. There will be more kids wearing what they want which would be harder in enforcing a dress code.
Being in high school is time consuming. With some high schools adding community service as a requirement to graduate, it puts on more time for students. Yes, community service is good on college applications and it helps the environment and what not, but it should be optional. High school has enough requirements which includes certain classes that a student must take. Volunteering should not be mandatory because students already have enough responsibilities; they might have jobs, the need to be social and healthy, and if it’s supposed to be voluntary then it shouldn’t be forced.
Why Kids Should Have Curfews Curfews may not be ideal for the everyday high school student, but curfews play a really important role in making good grades. Also containing energy throughout the day and protecting kids throughout the night from kidnappings or serious car accidents. Curfews have become less and less thought about as the years go by, almost seeming like the past parents were stricter than today’s parents. Curfews are something that will have to become more relevant in today’s world with all the technology present to today’s kids. Of course the kids are going to be sidetracked from doing their homework or studying because of technology.
At Apollo Career Center, there are a lot of people who bring stuff like chew, dip, and vape pens into class. Even though they know that they are not supposed to do it, they still do and get suspended for it. They are wasting their time and money by coming to school and then getting suspended. They are also wasting the teachers’ time by pulling them away from teaching so that they can deal with the chewers, dippers, and vapers. If the school had a person at the entrance to the building to search their bags and pockets for those items, it would save time and money.
Since countless schools start early in the morning, it forces students to wait in almost pitch-black conditions for the school bus. After Sandra Himmel, school superintendent, pushed back her school’s start times, she saw drastic changes, “These include safety concerns. Having the youngest children in the district waiting for buses before the sun comes up is hardly an appealing situation...children 's safety concerns are uppermost in parents ' minds”(“Give Start Times a Chance). With the uncertainties of today, there should be no question as to why parents are afraid to leave their children out in the dark of the morning, waiting for the school bus. Since early school start times have already proven to cause depression and anxiety among students, it is common that because of it, suicidal thoughts can generate as well.
Many argue that the ALICE response program just exposes students to things situations that will cause unnecessary stress and fear. During the training, students are taught how to handle a situation where they is an armed intruder in their school. Many parents do not want these drills in place because they “don’t want to expose their young children to such discussions of violence” (Blad). The whole idea of a intruder coming into schools and trying to harm them is very scary, especially when your school is going over in detail how to defend yourself in a situation because the training can make it seem much more likely to occur. The training makes this situation seem much more real, which causes students to be scared and worried when they come to school because they may think they will be shot.
Middle school students should not have all purpose lockers. Why? For 1 lockers cause too much drama. When I say drama, I mean fights. Students will take the chance to pick a fight with a person they just so happen to dislike, and if they just so happen to be the last people at their lockers a argument or a fight can take place.
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
They will also be more focused in class to get better grades which will also help get more work done in class. It will help them because there will be less misbehaved students which means the teachers will spend less time correcting the students. You could argue that it will not help students get better grades, but there has been many
Lowering these distractions in the hallways will also dismiss academic distractions. 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.
