Imagine getting a call from your daughter during the school day, her saying, “Hey, mom/dad, I need you to come get me, they said my outfit is too distracting.” Leaving home or work to pick her up or bring her new clothes because others can not focus. What was your daughter wearing, leggings, she was wearing leggings. Dress codes are too controlling, it is sexist toward women and unfair on students. Public school dress codes are made to restrict certain clothing that students are allowed to wear, this can be good and bad, but people take it way overboard. Many schools have school uniforms for reasons such as showing school spirit, safety, and to reduce bullying.
Students wake up every morning staring at their closet wondering what they are going to wear to school making sure that it fits the dress code standards. school dress codes don 't allow you to dress with the trends without getting dress coded. School dress codes is body shaming Girls by what they want to wear to school. Girls have trouble with dress codes because they can 't show their brushed up or any skin on their body that 's distracting. school should have a dress code because students can express their identity through their clothes, show their creative imagination, and dress codes are unfair to girls.
Dress code rules teach students that their individuality is not important in addition to discouraging creativity. Some schools have even gone as far as digitally altering school pictures to raise necklines and add sleeves to female’s shirts (Orenstein 2). In a school environment, dress code rules impose on students’ rights to free speech, require extreme difficulty to enforce equally, and suppress students’ individuality and freedom. In today 's Society men and women all over the country are challenging their schools’ dress code rules and their constitutionality (“Taking on School Dress Codes: Teen Rebels With a Cause” 1). Part of withholding the democracy depends upon the people.
Schools can develop programs or activities that include drawing, music, dance, martial arts, theater, sculpture and even crafts. In conclusion, school uniforms benefit students in a number of ways. School uniforms can be cost-efficient, promote equality among students and reduce the distractions that don’t relate to school work. Even Bill Clinton, former President of the United States of America said that uniforms are a “better” choice for students. I strongly believe that school uniforms should not be banned from schools and I encourage other schools who don’t require school uniforms to try as uniforms create a better learning environment for the future leaders of the next
Atticus is teaching Scout not to give up because she has had a bad experience and to be a law abiding citizen even if others do not follow the law. During school Ms. Caroline who is a school teacher tells Scout to stop reading. Ms. Caroline upsets Scout which is another reason Scout does not want to return to school. Atticus explains “ If you’ll concede the necessity of going to school, we’ll go on reading every night..” (Lee 41). Atticus believes that attending school building an educated person who based their morals on information.
In hopes to solve such problems, some schools even implemented school uniforms. By enforcing school uniforms, schools hope that uniforms will decrease the pressure felt by students to wear the most popular trends and lessen the harsh judgement of other students. As stated by the website ProCon.org, “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” (“Should”). By having students dress in uniforms, schools create a new normal that is more equal for all students. Unfortunately, not everywhere as made this change.
School uniforms help because if everyone is wearing the same clothing and they all look the same, you won’t be concentrating on what your friend is wearing, but you will be actually listening to what the teacher has to say. In the book School Dress Codes: A Pro/Con Issue it says, “If you are looking at a guy with a purple mohawk and six earrings you probably aren't concentrating on your teachers as much as you should be.” Page 20. Those are some of the reasons why I think school uniforms help you concentrate more in school because as I said if someone is wearing something crazy in front of you it is going to be really hard to concentrate during class. Instead when everyone is wearing the same thing you will be ready to learn in class without any distractions from what other people are wearing. People also think that it makes school a lot safer.

The dress codes that many adults have put in place to protect us has actually done the opposite. Strict dress codes are not necessary and can even be toxic to young minds.
