The limitations for school uniforms are more strict then ever now just because they type of clothing that young kids or young adults are wearing today. School uniforms limits students freedom of expressing themselves. All over the world students are required to wear a uniforms just to make the school look good or have a appropriate professional look. Not enough students has a chance to have a self image
Prayer should be allowed in school because some people who want to go to a religious school cannot because of the cost and some areas do not have religious schools around, people who believe in God or just want to pray have a right to freely pray due to the first amendment which says congress cannot make laws against religious practices, and it is said that prayer is controversial, although some teachings taught in school are extremely controversial, so it would not be fair to rule out prayer because not everyone believes in it. Some people don’t believe in polytheistic teachings, yet it is mentioned in social studies books all around. As you can see, prayer in school would not only benefit individuals but groups of people. Prayer in school helps, and does not hurt. In addition to this if any institution doesn’t allow an individual to pray in the U.S.A, it is unconstitutional and infringes on the right of the
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.
With uniforms in hand, after school clothes won't be wasted, school uniforms will be only used in school. School uniforms are exactly that, a uniform, instead of a fashion statement. School Uniforms can even limit some of the pressures that keep students from wanting to attend school. Some students in daily life in school face peer pressure with the outfit their in, or what others are in. Peer pressure can occur because of clothing, students get so pressured about the issue and decide not to go to school.
Gangs can be formed by clothing, like students wearing a certain color or symbol on their shirts. If all students wore school uniforms, there would not be a way for gangs to be formed. Gangs can harass others and cause them to be afraid to come to school, which would lower their attendance and their grades. Bullies also play a big part in school violence. Students are constantly being picked on about their clothing.
For example, having a dress code and wearing uniforms should be allowed in school, because the school won’t have trouble with any clothes that might not be appropriate and wearing uniforms make the school look way more organized than not having a uniform. They also won’t have any trouble with any attitude that might not be appropriate for school. Many people think the opposite. Since many people think dress codes and uniforms are bad we shouldn’t have them in schools. People should have different opinions and this is mine and many of the communities opinion.
While some might claim that seeing people who dress differently are distracting, some actually claim and praise the “nonconformists” for being true to themselves. Which brings us to the next issue that uniforms restrict the students from expressing themselves and individuality, wearing school uniforms restrict the students from showing physically their personalities- no more dressing up according to whatever their mood is for that day; and while conformity isn’t really a bad thing on most cases, school uniforms promote and value conformity over individuality. Also, some argue that promoting school uniforms would be a lot like suppressing individual thought and ignoring how diverse and different the students are and how different they think. Next, researchers claim that even though the students are dressing the same way, uniforms do not really conceal their socioeconomic standing, it gives only the illusion of equality that only lasts a couple of months as by the time goes it will be pretty evident to everyone who is up on the social ladder. Lastly, we now live in a time where everyone seems to value humanism.
For example, sweatpants are not against dress code but they don’t show professionalism. They are also just students and should be able to live the child life as long as they can. These reasons are why dress codes should be banned. There should be no school dress code because it limits the freedom of expression, targets girls, and they are hard to enforce. Girls should not have to follow extra rules because boys can't control themselves around girls.
In the website EBSCOHost: School Uniforms: An Overview it says.”Some kids spend hours just to decide of what they are going to wear that day and it might be very stressful for them just to choose what to wear.” In schools with uniforms there is not that kind of pressure. Those are some of the reasons why I think that uniforms cause less stress in what students have to wear to school because they won’t have to worry about getting the best brands or decide of what to wear to school that
Some deem others who do not wear the most fashionable clothes unpopular. In fact, according to the website Daily Mail, “children are so heavily influenced by brands that they bully or shun classmates who do not keep up with fashions and logos” (Clark). For example, in Heather Havrilesky’s essay “Bobos”, she discusses conflicts in school with fellow classmates treating her differently and ridiculing her because the shoes she normally bought were not the name brand shoes everyone else bought (Havrilesky 34). This is merely one example illustrating people being viewed differently and judged because of a misunderstanding of what normal is. In hopes to solve such problems, some schools even implemented school uniforms.
Although, knowing this would create responsibility over their uniform. This would help them not take for granted want is given to them. For low income families, purchasing expensive clothing that can only be used for school can be a hassle and a waste. The option of finding secondhand uniforms is also available. Some people give away their uniform for a cheaper price or for free as they do not need it anymore.
This is one of those debates that happens over and over again. My judgement on school uniforms is a yes and a no. It would stop bullying over clothing but it basically tells the kids that they can’t express themselves at school. School uniforms would stop distractions but the children would feel like they can’t show their differences in clothing like some kids like colorful stuff and some have traditional clothing and some like certain things that they like to dress in. School uniforms are not a bad idea but the flaw is how the uniforms affect the students minds.
These codes are expected to be lived by but have done nothing but become a burden to students and faculty. High schools, colleges, and universities should not have honor codes or honor systems because, some colleges cannot enforce them, students will not tell on one another, and the responsibility of others honor is burdened on students. Contradictory to what many may believe many schools lack the authority and control that is essential in maintaining honor codes. This makes it less likely anyone will abide by such codes. As aforementioned, schools don 't have the ability to enforce honor codes in such a way they would change a student 's behavior.
Students should not have to wear uniforms in school. Uniforms are so bland and tacky they have no emotion. While students wearing their own clothes get to show and express what they want. Students wearing uniforms do not get to show or express what they want. You might never get to meet people or start conversations because of your outfit.
