Student Rights By: Joey James Do students ever think that the schooling system takes away some of their basic rights? Should they have to trade their rights for a ticket into school? Sometimes school systems infringe the rights of students through aspects of privacy, freedom of expression, and freedom of speech.
Those against school uniforms make the argument that the introduction of uniforms cause many students to rebel, making a more difficult learning environment. Almost all schools have dress code policies. An argument that follows naturally would be that students will rebel against any rules set in place. In contrast, uniforms actually create a calmer, more businesslike environ-ment. As teacher Ms. Barry said, "The kids wearing uniforms are less cocky towards adults." She also noticed that after introducing uniforms, her "kids sit up and pay attention. They 're quiet. I think the school takes on a quieter, studious atmosphere. They are getting along" (Huss 36-37). Rules are also good for young people. It gives them the structure that is needed.
In this day and age, it can be difficult to keep children mentally youthful and acting age appropriate. School uniforms teach students to dress adequately, a necessary and useful skill that will be valuable later in life.

This is one of those debates that happens over and over again. My judgement on school uniforms is a yes and a no. It would stop bullying over clothing but it basically tells the kids that they can’t express themselves at school. School uniforms would stop distractions but the children would feel like they can’t show their differences in clothing like some kids like colorful stuff and some have traditional clothing and some like certain things that they like to dress in. School uniforms are not a bad idea but the flaw is how the uniforms affect the students minds.
Indirectly school uniforms will help increase the safety in schools. Most gang members are perceived that they are in a gang through the color combinations of their clothes. Take, for instance, blood represented by the color red and hell represents the color black. There won 't be any room to promote gang activity if everyone is wearing that same school uniform. The department of education was reported, when school dress became a mandatory policy in public schools, incidents of vandalism went down by a massive 69% and cases of assault decreased by a whopping 85%, which are both know forms of gang activities.

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

Middle school students must wear uniforms. I am arguing against that middle school's student must wear uniforms, I think that kids need to express themselves and the best way to do so is with what you wear. There are kids who have worn uniforms and they say that it is uncomfortable to walk around in close you don't like. Schools that are making kids wear uniforms are taking control over those children, control only the parents should have. Kids need to learn how to be independent, when they wear uniforms they are being taught to follow.
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 the article of Dr. Alan Hilfer from 2009, “Disadvantages of a School Uniform Policy” stated that “We need free thinking children of to become thinkers of tomorrow, not droned who will continue making the mistakes of previous generations”(Hilfer, 2009). Feelings on school uniforms seem to differ as much as the reasons for having them, hate it, or love it. Recent studies done in the University of Alabama states that: “Student Uniform use was not significantly correlated with any of the school commitment variables. 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.
