Everyone has made an argument. It could be as little as argueing so you can to your friend’s house to as big as why you should be president. Whenever you make an argument you’re trying to persuade the person to listen to you. The points you make are ethos (appeals to credibility), logos (logic), or pathos (emotion). You do it without knowing.
School is a place where kids should be able to express themselves, not be put in regulated clothing. School is probably one of the only place kids can express themselves. Kids should not have to wear uniforms because uniforms take away our freedom of expression.
This could also influence parents not to let their kid attend the school because of what they’ve witnessed other children from the school making bad choices. Finally, many people think uniforms can prevent bullying, but they really don’t (The Olympian.) Kids these days are being bullied for who they hang out with and their interests. Wearing a
School uniforms could eliminate all competitions, or even the feeling of low self-esteem stemming from the perception that some are more or less inadequate than others. School uniforms could even terminate the hierarchy that over runs schools all together. Though it may seem school uniforms fix problems and are generally regarded as a “good thing”, not all share in the enthusiasm. According to the article, Individuality vs. Conformity: The Issue Behind School Uniforms, there is an argument against school uniforms that states, “...forcing a uniform on students limits the choices they can exercise in this aspect of growing up and rebelling against authority... (Caruso, P. (1996)).”
Students need to be taught at an early age that we should respect one another no matter what we wear ; similarly students need to be taught that what a person wears does not define who they are. When students learn to respect others no matter what they wear it makes them be more open minded, and makes them more respectful and kinder. One example is that when people wear what they prefer and feel more comfortable in people will respect them more because they were taught from a young age to respect each gender no matter what they put on their bodies. Many people believe that school uniforms decrease bullying but actually in the article ¨School uniforms¨ it states that in a 2007 study school uniforms increased the number of assaults by 14 and school incidents rose by 12%. If we did not have school uniforms we will learn to respect one another and be kinder which will help us in the
There are many reasons why we shouldn 't have school uniforms but I thought this is the most important reason, uniforms give the administrator too much control over the students yes it 's good to have control over the students but with uniforms it is a little too much control. Uniforms allow the school decide to choose what you wear and later in life they won’t know how to think for themselves they will have to rely on someone else or they will always be over dressed, I know what you 're thinking what 's wrong with being overdressed well it may be better than underdressed but there are times to be overdressed like weddings or funerals but not like at the beach or birthday parties if you do it makes you look like snooty rich kid thats why its not good to always be
For example from the article “School Uniforms- Pros and Cons” it says that there is less peer pressure to fit in when they’re not wearing the trendy brands and they’re all wearing the same thing. From the article “Pros and con” it states “Students always want to wear the “popular” brand of clothing and they talk about it too which gets them off topic” (Hertzler,1). By having school uniforms students will stay more focused on schoolwork instead of what the “popular trend” or brand is for that moment. Students like talking about in class what style or type of clothing they’re getting. Usually kids also compliment each others clothes which would get them off topic and not paying attention in class.
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. Bailey, PhD, an education author and activist, she states that ,“ Students should learn to make informed decisions about the clothes they wear.”(ProCon.org) Overall, people should consider public schools because of it does not require uniforms.
Six thousand kids have died not just from bullying in general, but from the clothes they wear. Google reports that “Nineteen percent of public school principals reported requiring uniforms in the 2009-2010 school year, up from 12 percent a decade earlier. The percentage of public schools whose principals reported enforcement of a strict dress code rose from 47 percent to 57 percent during the decade.” This means that every year, more and more schools are instituting school uniforms. If more schools were to do the same, many more schools would be
This shows uniforms can remove distractions from what students wear. School uniforms create a level playing field among students, reducing peer pressure and bullying. When all students are dressed alike, competition between students over clothing choices and the teasing of those who are dressed in less expensive or less fashionable outfits can be eliminated. Research by the Schoolwear Association found that 83% of teachers
Imagine how delighted parents would feel if they reduced their back-to-school spending by hundreds upon hundreds of dollars as a result of not investing in designer clothes for their children to wear to school. Envision a student roaming down the congested hallway at school not having to fret about someone teasing them because of their outfit. Picture a school that is safe, content, and unified. With school uniforms, all of this is viable. First of all, uniforms save parents heaps of money.
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.
In conclusion, school uniforms are a great thing to have in schools. Even though there is that argument on whether school uniforms will violate the right of self-expression to students it will continue either way. At the end of the day students should see that there are more positive effects with uniforms rather than negative ones. It should be taking in consideration that the clothes a student wears will not determine the ability of learning, but why not pick school uniforms that can help stop current school
School uniforms give students a sense of unity because they feel like they can fit in without fear of being too different. Making a dress uniform mandatory will decrease sexual harassment, create more interesting humans and make schools safer. A school uniform would make schools safer. The idea of wearing uniforms to schools was originally introduced to reduce violence in schools in 1996 by the Department of Education (Underwood, 1).
Requiring every student to dress the same can help to make everyone equal and therefore cut down on feeling superior to one another. On the other hand, you have to consider that bullying happens everywhere and most likely will still continue to exist in a school with uniforms, although it may help to decrease it a significant amount. Bullying is a serious issue, but the school board has to figure out if uniforms will help or hurt their cause. As far as hurting, I am not sure what damage it could do to the bullying cause but I am sure there is some. Now that I consider it, it would make those less fortunate easier to discover.
