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
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
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.
Let’s weigh the pros and cons of school uniforms states, “The cost of uniforms is prohibitive, especially when a family includes more than one school-aged child.” Some parents that are on a strict budget don’t want to and can’t pay the extra money for a uniform. School uniforms: Pros and Cons says, “Parents raise concerns about the cost.” Some other families can’t even afford these uniforms and are using all their money just to provide needed things like food or appliances to use around the house. Clearly, the evidence shows that most students and parents think school uniforms are expensive. In addition to uniforms costings a lot, they also take the individuality out of the students. School Uniforms: What are the Pros and Cons?
School uniforms, school uniforms have been debated among the states with tons of studies that say they help with school issues and other studies that contradict school uniforms have no significant change. In order to save money schools shouldn’t be adding more costs to school, school should be cheaper, its fundamental to all kids to learn and not for the parents to be spending more money on school uniforms especially with families on a tight budget. The issue of school uniforms has been around 1969 ever since the US Supreme Court issued a law that kids could protest if it wasn’t disruptive. Bill Clinton also supported this because he didn’t want to see kids fight over expensive clothing. Over time, it has evolved into a debate whether they
School uniforms help because if everyone is wearing the same clothing and they all look the same, you won’t be concentrating on what your friend is wearing, but you will be actually listening to what the teacher has to say. In the book School Dress Codes: A Pro/Con Issue it says, “If you are looking at a guy with a purple mohawk and six earrings you probably aren't concentrating on your teachers as much as you should be.” Page 20. Those are some of the reasons why I think school uniforms help you concentrate more in school because as I said if someone is wearing something crazy in front of you it is going to be really hard to concentrate during class. Instead when everyone is wearing the same thing you will be ready to learn in class without any distractions from what other people are wearing. People also think that it makes school a lot safer.
Prayer Should Be Allowed In Schools Most people believe that prayer is a waste of time, and should not be allowed in school. Even though religions are diverse, prayer should be allowed, or at least an option. Prayer should be allowed in schools because not everyone who wants to go to a religious school can, those who believe in God should be able to freely worship in school, and people accuse prayer of being controversial, when teachings such as evolution and global warming are controversial. Prayer should be allowed in school because not everyone can afford to pay the pricey fees of religious schools. Religious schools are very expensive.
School boards must understand that, “... school uniforms may well be a financial burden to poorer families, who will be forced to buy uniforms in addition to regular clothing… (Source B)” As some find it hard to have enough regular clothing to get them through the school year, it would be unfair to require them to buy a whole new set of clothing in order to attend public school. It would not only negatively affect the families, but also, “Another cost factor… is the increased burden on administrators, staff, and faculty to enforce policies. (Source D)” With a stricter dress code, comes stricter enforcement, for there is no point to a dress code if it is not executed. Goods such as “Loner” clothing would be a required purchase of schools for those students who do not fit the dress code, but cannot change, and a plethora of rules would need to be decided and put in order, such as: what length of skirts/shorts will be the regulation, tools for measuring precisely, what colors will be worn, jewelry or no jewelry?, type of socks allowed, shoes allowed, pants, even if nail polish will be permitted or not. It all puts a mental burden on administrators, costing them their peace of mind.
A recent study said more than two thirds of americans agree with the notion that “liberals have gone too far in trying to keep religion out of the schools and the government” (Rosentiel). Religion is a belief in and worship of a superhuman controlling power. Having religion in schools is a big controversy because religious people want prayer in school and non religious people do not want prayer in schools. Religion is a big topic to talk about but especially in schools. The controversial idea of praying in schools is detrimental to the school environment because it could cause arguments, it would have to be inclusive to all religions, and it would not consider the interests of non-religious students.
School uniforms are uniforms that people wear to school. If you wear school uniforms then you do not wear your own clothes and if you do not wear school uniforms to school. School uniforms should not be used in schools because if you wear school uniform It has been claimed that, it cost less to just have 1 or 2 uniforms then all your own clothes. Joel Donofrio, a principal of Woodland Middle School, wrote for Cdapress, Joel quoted,¨Parents can reduce their financial burden when their children are limited to wearing one simple outfit every day.¨ However, it cost to much money when school uniforms are worn to school. Kyler Sumter, a Chicago Junior High student, writer for Edweek, Kyler quoted ¨The cost of school uniforms is leaving hundreds of thousands of children at risk of bullying and embarrassment because they are sent to school in ill-fitting clothes or sent home for not having the correct kit, a children’s charity has warned.¨ This example shows, some uniforms cost too much money so kids end
Students are spending increasing amounts of time preparing for and taking competitive standardized tests. Standardized testing has become a controversial discussion subject, as it does not improve student achievement or teacher performance. Some advocate for these tests because it provides students, parents, and the government with information on the students’ progress. Although most schools make students take standardized tests, it does not measure the knowledge of the students, causes disadvantages for students and teachers, and can be biased or even unfair. First, high-status universities decided they wanted to offer more students across the country a better chance in higher education, but there was not a way to measure the proficiency
Dress codes are more distracting than the clothes the students wear and if the students get distracted, it’ll be their fault for not paying attention in class because they are supposed to be paying attention to the teacher and not the clothing on others. The dress codes even ban religious clothes! In Kentucky, a 14 year old girl was suspended for wearing a headscarf or a hijab. Sometimes, dress codes can prevent bullying, but it can also cause it. Since we have a dress code, students might get bullied by other students who don’t have a dress code.
School uniforms will help prevent bullying in public schools. Some students attending school have pretty low income and won’t be able to afford their clothes thus putting them at risk. Some of these students can’t afford it and would wait for a big or clearance sale to hit the store that’s why they would most likely be able to buy. These are the students that are picked on in school and made fun off and
