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.
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
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.
The cost of one uniform for a standard private school is $249. The cost is extremely expensive and the average amount of children in a family is 2. So that $249 doubles if you choose to have both your children attend a private school. Uniforms are expensive, they take out the personality of students, and some students think uniforms are overrated and not needed. A lot of schools make students wear uniforms when they believe they should wear whatever they want.
In the essay, “Schoolwear Association Research Reveals Uniforms Can Be a Powerful Tool,” the printwear and promotion point to a study done by the Schoolwear Association disagrees and points out that having school uniforms will lower bullying caused by where they are from and economic class. They that,”83% of teachers thought "a good school uniform... could prevent bullying based on appearance or economic background. "(Schoolwear Association ). What this means is having school uniforms can lower bullying. 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, 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.
This lessens differentiation and nervousness, which then results to the student being able to do his or her list of activities. To support this point, 5 Reasons Why Wearing a Proper Uniform is Important (2015) states that a dress code policy saves a lot of time and effort because the person doesn’t have to choose again and again the clothes to be worn at school, thus preserving his or her time for other productive
Dancy Bailey, a teacher, writing for School Uniforms, quoted,¨The push for students to wear uniforms to improve behavior lacks validity and seems ill-advised for a democratic public school system. Today 's school uniforms seem more a punitive measure meant to deny students their right to freedom of expression and individuality. Public schools can still have dress codes without resorting to mandatory uniforms. There are much better goals to address safety and overall school climate." School uniforms are uniforms that people wear to school.
Envision waking up every morning to put on the same outfit and walk out the door, stress free. People would not have to worry about what fits, or what is fashionable at the time. Schools would not have to worry about inappropriate clothing but at the same time, that clothing may be a way for a student to express himself. Many schools view uniforms as a solution to several problems, but many schools view uniforms as a lack of self expression. School uniforms should continue, even though children may not get to express themselves, because they prohibit violence, provide cheaper lifestyles, and promote better education.
Clothing of choice can be argued as a method of expressing personal identity as well as beliefs (Swafford 8). A student may like to wear a new outfit every other day, or wear more comfortable clothing. Evans believes that uniforms are not required to prevent wearing clothes that represent gangs, as there should already be rules that prevent this (Evans 3). Many parents corroborate this and believe school uniforms are not required to further students education, and that it can be done by placing basic rules on what can and can not be worn in school. While rules such as these are enforced in schools that lack a dress code, they can only do so much to prevent
