According to the article, “School Uniforms: Should…”, “Opponents [of dress codes] insist that fashion is an important venue for young people to display their individuality and identity.” Also from “School Uniforms: Should…” Opponents [of dress codes], however, argue that uniforms stifle creativity. Another problem that arises from the lack of individuality is the fact that student are not getting the experience of picking out clothes for school. According to Soraya Chemaly, there are times when dressing more mature is just fine for students, especially girls. (Chemaly 40). Overall if students are allowed to dress themselves and express their own individuality like adults, they will get a better school experience.
Students need to learn what clothes are acceptable and appropriate to public and at school. This will make it easier when they look for work. People who are hiring teenagers for jobs are not going to hire someone that doesn’t know what to wear to formal and public areas. If we want our schools to train our students for adult life, we need to have a dress code in place to teach them what is ok to wear. Many critics of dress codes say that dress codes disadvantage students whose families cannot afford decent clothes.
School dress code changes as ages change. Elementary school dress code is antithetic compared to High school dress code. First, Elementary school limits to no hats and not tank tops. How does an eleven year old know what a “short-short” from a normal short? Next, Middle school, we are flooded with another wave of new dress code rules.
But at the same time, sometimes that can be a disruption to the school. That's where the fine line comes in there. "C(The anatomy of dress code)This quote represents that without dress code people like teenage girls will take advantage of it in school because of how people look at them as.What I’m trying to say is that you should trying to care for what your kids could be doing now days because many people get dress coded and they would be mad because they would say that the dress code is very strict if they can’t even obey it. You could argue that“Can hinder creative expression in
Last year as I was leaving the cafeteria to get to class my peer, who wishes to stay anonymous, got pulled over by an administrator because she was violating the dress code. She was a wearing a crew neck t shirt with a flannel which had a collar. She told me, "The school should focus more on my education instead of prosecuting me for wearing a collared shirt that revealed nothing. When other people walk around with worse infractions to the dress code and get away with it. I just want to live my life."
Because of her examples from people who you would never think to dress provocatively, this will help to persuade the readers of the realization of how women just to want to dress out of the norm. Stephanie Rosenbloom argues the message and logical reasoning for, “Why have so many girls grown up to trade in Wonder Woman costumes for little more than Wonderbras?”(165). She drives the readers to reflect upon their own experiences on the night of
It is public property that individuals change their behaviours to fit in with the perceived and accepted social norms (Lyon, 1994). In this gender stereotypical city, modern female youth are searching for alternative forms of belonging and a palpable sense of ‘self’. Just as ethnic groups try to define themselves by analyzing their characteristics that mark other ethnic groups apart (Barth, 1969), female youth create their own subcultural identity. Different from other fashion trends, there is no restrictions or reservations on members of sneakerhead subculture. Female youth are free to opt for their favourite footwear which fully speak for them.
No matter what a student wears to school it doesn’t block or contribute weather a student will learn or not, so if a student wants to wear a crop top to school they should be able to wear it if a girl decides to wear shorts to school she should be able to wear it. Sometime boys might feel it’s too hot to come to school in a t-shirt and decides to wear a tank top he should be able to wear it and not have to serve a consequence. No matter how much schools have dress codes students will try to outbreak those rules. At the end of the day students come to school to get an education, students use their brains to learn and not what they wear to school. According to “Dacula high school dress code” students are not allowed to wear multiple things to school like shorts, crop tops, tank tops, rip jeans and trench coats and the list goes on.
For example, in the movie “Mean Girls” when Katy is first introduced to the popular girls at the school she is told that on Wednesday she must wear pink in order to sit at their table. In Katy’s school wearing pink on a certain day is one of the tacit codes she must follow in order to belong. In doing so, she is giving up her unique style and conforming to what the other girls are wearing. She does this to calm her natural urge that pushes her to fit in. Katy is one of the many people out in the world that has willingly followed meaningless tacit codes instead of being unique.
Girls should have the freedom to wear what they want to school without being told to change or go home. How many of you have seen, heard, or have been told to change your clothes because they don't follow school dress code? Were most of those people girls? Girls are mostly targeted for their clothes because the school thinks they are distracting or inappropriate. We need to stop teaching girls to cover up because society can see their thighs or shoulders, and give them the freedom to go to school without being dresscoded or discriminated against.
