Some people who are not in favor of dress codes say dress codes should not be put in place in publicly funded schools because they limit a student’s freedom of expression. They are correct, dress codes do restrict a student’s freedom of expression. However, expression is not as important as a student’s ability to learn how to be well off in the adult world. The benefits of dress codes outweigh this one con. The first main reason to impose dress codes in school is that they decrease gang violence.
School uniforms should be required in all public schools across the united states because, school uniforms reduce the amount of distraction in the classroom, school uniforms create a positive, no violence culture and climate on campus, and lastly school uniforms end the competition between the rich and poor, weather it being about who has the nicest or most new up to date clothes. Firstly, school uniforms reduce the distraction in the classroom. According to “UNIFORMS: are they a good fit?” it states, “Many of these students say dress down days are somewhat distracting”(Marsha 36). This evidence proves that at a school where school uniforms are usually worn, they get to have a free day where they can wear whatever they want, but even then, one, just one day, students claim for it to be a little distracting. It also states from the same article, “Sixth grader tiffany gets sent to the principal's office because
Children who wear the same clothing everyday are not able to express their individuality and creativity. They even think that the root cause of bullying should not be addressed on students wear uniforms or not. The interest in encouraging on requiring uniforms for public school students is not a new phenomenon, “principals believe that the use of school uniforms can have a positive effect on violence reduction and academic achievement, and can reduce the need to discipline.” (Stanley, 424) Teenagers can be judgmental of each other and compare with each other sometimes. Uniforms can prevent students in school getting bullied, killed, sexual harass or even fight with each other about what they wear to school, if everyone all had uniforms, students would not pick on other people; especially protect the students from lower income family will not feel inferior, and reduce sexually harass based on what they are wearing. If all these issues can be removed and many school violence can be avoided.
Uniforms Are Not For Students What if every student was required to wear uniforms at school? This question is brought up a lot with discussing school dress code. Many people think that wearing uniforms would be beneficial to the students. Some do not care what they wear and just want to go to school. Others think that it is the worst idea ever.
Many people agree that they should because it will decrease amount of bullying and violence, other people disagree and say that the amount of bullying will not decrease and that kids should be able to express themselves. However, wearing school uniforms is a big problem that students don 't need to have. Students not being able to express themselves because they are hidden in a school uniform. According to ( Resisting Conformity in Thailand) in the video it says “These students have to have to have their hair a certain length and girls had to dye there hair back to black if they had dyed their hair over the summer and the fingernails had to be a certain length.” How bad is that having to have to have your hair a certain length. However, from the article (Student Protest Over Dress Code Leads to Parents ' Arrest in Miss) it states that “At Rosa Fort High
In fact, the odds are against you.” -robert greene I picked this quote because teachers are not going to going to hold you hand throughout high school. Their just their just their to teach the students who want to make it in life and some do not care if you pass or not. My grades have changed since I first started high school they were really good at first but then I got side tracked thinking I would pull up my grades last minute. I was horribly wrong and realized that it wasn’t as easy as middle school. My sophomore year was probably the worst because I slacked off and procrastinated but I picked myself up thanks to a little motivation.
Alan Gribben, the editor of the new edition, asserts, “Seems to me I'm doing something constructive by simply eliminating a word that's a clear barrier for many people”. However, the word ‘nigger’ itself does not cause any problems; it’s the intolerance of people exposed to it that makes the word secluded from society. The setting where this issue is most prominent is in high school classrooms. While the use of ‘nigger’ may cause inappropriate behavior by mischievous students, the censorship does more harm than good. It would prevent readers from understanding the word’s prior applications.
For high schools specifically, attendance is a serious issue. Students would be less reluctant to go to school if either a Friday or Monday was omitted from the school week. Because of this, students might have an improved attitude at school, which could lead to less violence. Going to school one less day per week would also conserve energy and save money for the school. For students whose parent or guardian drives them to and from school, driving to and from school one less time during the week would save them gas.
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.
The school said they expelled the narrator because it would hurt the honor of the school, but this might not the entire truth. If the school had let this event fly it would have damaged the reputation of the school, while also hurting the narrator too. The future of the narrator would have been damaged because he might not have become a writer. When the narrator left the school, the school’s reputation didn’t fall, and the narrator was in a better position than he would have been. This means that it’s a win-win scenario for the narrator and the school.
My first year at Brookdale I joined the ALP program because I didn’t get a good grade on the Accuplacer. I decided to join this program so I wouldn’t have to take a English course next semester and be so behind. I joined Brookdale because I didn’t know what I wanted to do as a major and also didn’t know what four year college to go to. I didnt think Brookdale was going to all that great so I didn’t really want to go, but it was the best decision I made. Going to Brookdale was a good choice for me.
Zero-tolerance policies will teach children how society works - when you make bad choices, you will have bad outcomes. Parents and administrative claim that it’s important to keep these policies in schools because they help maintain a safe environment, while teaching students unacceptable behavior is (Sellors). “ Zero-tolerance policies remove difficult students quickly,” said Sellors. After these students are removed from a schools, it is harder for them to get into another school. Although some students who are expelled from school are offered an alternative education at disciplinary schools, those schools fail to provide a “meaningful education” (ACLU).
