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 taken 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
This book should be taught to High School students across the country, and it should not be a banned book. To Kill a Mockingbird teaches students morals, and ethics. The book is still partially accurate to what some people go through even in today’s world, and what the books reads is still a part of history that should not be covered up and tucked away. To Kill a Mockingbird should still be taught in school systems, and should not be a banned book because the novel focuses on a part of history that should not be ignored.
Then, there are people who agree with wearing school uniforms. Thesis: o Uniforms are not beneficial because they affect students’ academic achievement, freedom, and their image. Main points: o Academic achievement o Students freedom o Students do not like them and it effects their image.
My school would greatly benefit from the application of an honor code as long as such a code is approved by the student body. Such an honor code would bring about students to reconsider their actions before cheating on a test. This is because an honor code has the ability to create a culture among students which discourages cheating. Also, including harsh punishments within the honor code would dishearten students from cheating out of fear of potential consequences. Schools which have not benefited from honor codes are very different from Classical, and therefore do not prove that an honor code would be ineffective at Classical.
While some might claim that seeing people who dress differently are distracting, some actually claim and praise the “nonconformists” for being true to themselves. Which brings us to the next issue that uniforms restrict the students from expressing themselves and individuality, wearing school uniforms restrict the students from showing physically their personalities- no more dressing up according to whatever their mood is for that day; and while conformity isn’t really a bad thing on most cases, school uniforms promote and value conformity over individuality. Also, some argue that promoting school uniforms would be a lot like suppressing individual thought and ignoring how diverse and different the students are and how different they think. Next, researchers claim that even though the students are dressing the same way, uniforms do not really conceal their socioeconomic standing, it gives only the illusion of equality that only lasts a couple of months as by the time goes it will be pretty evident to everyone who is up on the social ladder. Lastly, we now live in a time where everyone seems to value humanism.
The school did a preemptive ban by saying they will discipline anyone who wears the black armbands. The students wore the armbands in spite of the warning and were punished. The Supreme Court granted certiorari and ruled in favor of Tinker. They decided students don’t ‘shed their constitutional rights to freedom of speech or expression at the schoolhouse gate’ (ACLU). The case illustrates the students’ determination to change society’s present so the future can prosper.
Nobody can have a trendy outfit and pick on others who have less “cool” clothes. There would be more equality between the students. Another way students wearing uniforms will prevent bragging is clothes with opposing sports teams logos. When
Kennedy’s Christmas Truce proposal. The school officials discovered their plan and decided to create a preemptive ban where armbands weren’t allowed; any student who was not in compliance with the rule would be suspended and not allowed back until they agreed to abide by the dress code. The Tinkers and Eckhardt decided to violate the policy and were subsequently suspended (“Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District”), so their parents filed a lawsuit on their behalf and were represented by the American Civil Liberties Union (Tinker v. Des Moines). The Tinker party felt as though the Des Moines School District was violated the Tinkers’ and Eckhardt’s right to freedom of speech (through their expressive clothing) and did not deserve punishment for their actions. The school board believed the protest was potentially distracting and disruptive to the schools’ environments (Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District).
The student wearing it would have to wear it all day, the goal of this is too embarrass the student so much that the students would not break the rules again. This can cause bullying, and a complaint from parents that make the school look
Clothing of choice can be argued as a method of expressing personal identity as well as beliefs (Swafford 8). A student may like to wear a new outfit every other day, or wear more comfortable clothing. Evans believes that uniforms are not required to prevent wearing clothes that represent gangs, as there should already be rules that prevent this (Evans 3). Many parents corroborate this and believe school uniforms are not required to further students education, and that it can be done by placing basic rules on what can and can not be worn in school. While rules such as these are enforced in schools that lack a dress code, they can only do so much to prevent
Plagiarism can be defined as submitting another person’s ideas, words, images, or data without giving that person credit or proper acknowledgement. Plagiarism, a form of academic dishonesty, is equivalent to stealing and will not be tolerated. Because of the increased prevalence and the ease of copying other people’s work, the teachers and administration of Westisle Composite High School feel the need to inform students how to maintain their integrity and academic standards. In order to clarify what constitutes plagiarism, you should be aware that you have committed plagiarism when you: Use phrases, quotes, or ideas not your own; Paraphrase the word of another, even though you may have changed the wording or sentence structure Submit a paper
Students cannot be trusted when it comes to their work and it definitely can 't be trusted when it comes to honoring a code that is dependent on students having the discipline and integrity to uphold it. I see having an Honor Code as just another wall that students would eventually tear down and bury in their dus on the way to what they
Hostility not Expression James Peter recently was suspended for refusing to remove a Confederate flag belt buckle to school. The student had refused to remove the belt after the principle told him he needed to remove it because it violated the school policy. The policy was developed a few years back because of racial tension in the district. The student is suing under the first amendment freedom of speech clause with emphasis that the buckle was an expression of his southern heritage and interest in the war and not slavery. According to the fourteenth amendment equal protection clause, case law, and the Turner test for the first amendment the school was well within its rains of authority to ban the flag.
One survey question reads, “If you ever experienced a form of bullying, how did it make you feel? Did you go to someone for help?” One student answered this question by saying, “yes it made me feel really shitty and made me hurt myself. No, I did not go for help, nobody would listen.” This student shows that they chose to not say anything because they feel or know that nobody would listen anyway.
