Most of the students and staff think dress code should not be allowed. Now I wonder why do we actually have a dress code? School dress code does not improve student behavior and need to be eliminated. So I go to oak grove middle school and we have a dress code policy. It contains shirts , shoes and pants.
Many women are too embarrassed to talk about it, some believe it to be untreatable and many women think that it is a natural process of ageing. Reluctance to express, embarrassment, culture, dependant on husband and families for treatment, poor economic background, fear of surgery and pain are reasons for non- consultation (Singh
Being a middle school teacher, I know there will be many students struggling with these issues from other students and from people at home. I may not be able to change home situations, but I can change things that happen at school. Like Celie, there will be students going through similar situations. Some may not have a voice because of the bullying they experience from other students of the same gender or different gender. The cause for bully can be triggered because of many different reasons, some reasons are because of race, gender, socioeconomic status, religion, or ethnicity, or just because they have found an easy target.
In the end dress codes end up doing quite the opposite. In schools, dress codes cause sexism in schools, they make schools place this code over everything else, the aftermath of dress codes are negative, and they also cause a lack of creative freedom. Sexism in schools is so prominent due to dress codes due to the unfairness between male and female dress codes. It is often thought that what a female student is wearing can be more distracting than what a male student wears. The reason for this belief is that ever since childhood society teaches kids that it is the woman 's fault if a male is distracted in any way by her.
From the beginning, she makes it apparent that the new law of women needing to wear a veil over their hair due to the revolution was very unfair and unnecessary. As a child, Marjane didn’t fully understand why they had to do this. After the veil law was put in place, her non-religious boys and girls school was changed to a religious school where boys and girls were split up. Many, many women did not like the new rule of the veil, so much that once protests began, women were arrested for not wearing the veil. Fashion moved from ideas taken from western culture to more conservative, like the veils or the full body dresses women had to wear.
For example, quoting, “https://www.greatschools.org/gk/articles/school-uniforms/” by Marian Wilde, “School uniforms violate a student’s right to freedom of expression...makes a target for bullies from other schools, are difficult to enforce in public schools, and are a financial burden for poor families.” This means that some families aren’t able to afford the school uniforms. Which, leads to many students getting bullied for not having uniforms like their
Clothing is such a statement to many children, and taking that away is not fair. It is important for students to embrace their individuality and find themselves during this time. School uniforms can also be expensive. A lot of kids in public school are there for a reason. Their family could never afford to send them to a private school, so why are they expected to afford private school costs?
Dress code is very discriminatory against girls and occasionally also against boys. We’ve all had a time when either you yourself were reprimanded or you witnessed someone else get reprimanded for their clothes in a school environment. What did you think about that? Chances are that it was a minor offence that got blown out of proportion. The dress codes that many adults have put in place to protect us has actually done the opposite.
Is There a Social Pressure on Females to look beautiful? Societies today always push on females to get the perfect look in peoples’ eyes without caring about females’ feelings. Unfortunately, societies care about the look instead of the personality. People do not understand the differences between females, and they think they all have to be pretty. This huge pressure can make females unconfident, sad, uncomfortable and it can make them hurt or hate themselves for who they are.
The second article by Laura Clark, is more embracive towards the uniform idea, as she claims throughout the text that uniforms lessen bullying, increase the individual student’s behaviour and concentration and simply make the daily triviality of picking clothes disappear. The last article written by Suzanne Moore, shares the negative sides of wearing uniforms in school. Moore informs us how the idea restricts children and teenagers from doing certain activities and the uniform made her feel “dispirited by the ridiculousness of it” (p. 1, l. 12-13). There are plenty of reasons to why the uniform should be abolished; uniforms are expensive, many good schools don’t have uniforms and children bully each other because of their accessories instead of their clothes. 2.
