One day at Independence High School (IHS), administrators came to the conclusion that they would allow students to use their electronic devices during lunch. Students were happy as they jumped and screamed when they heard the news. Gianna, a junior at IHS what happy, but wasn't a estatic. She was proud, self-proclaimed introvert, so she didn't see the point in the new rule. Maybe it was because she questioned plenty of things or maybe because she always saw the negative things instead of the positive, but she didn't think the new phone rule was a great idea.
Dress Codes: Fitting Into Strict Standards The ringing of the bell echoes through the hallway, as students step into their first period classes. Girls and boys enter, some wondering if their tank top straps are three fingers, or if the words on their shirt will get them into trouble.

Public schools do not require students to wear uniforms, but public schools do have a dress code which every student must adhere to. People believe there should be uniform because it reduces bullying by instilling discipline among students. Students cannot express themselves and wear their favorite clothes. According to Nancy E.

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.

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.
Dress codes should always be implemented because they focus students and better prepare learners for endeavors later in life. Teenagers tend to get distracted by short-shorts or tight pants. However, a dress code would prevent such distractions from occurring. Also, a dress code teaches children how to properly dress themselves, which will be a necessary ability later in life. Dress codes also make people uncomfortable, which means they are attentive.

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.

In addition, students wearing uniforms did not appear to have any significantly different academic performance” (Brunsma & Rockquemore, 1998). The problem whether schools should still be continuously implemented is a highly debatable topic.

It can also be agreed that many students do not accept the self-expression of their classmates and make fun of them.

“Uniforms sends a message and remind students that they are in school. One element of the message that when students are going to school that is their place of work” a quote taken from Joe Palumbo, the Co-Principal of Newacomb Academy.
