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
They would be wearing very short shorts, crop tops, etc. You might also have bullying from people because of the way someone wants to dress. With a dress code people have less of a chance of being bullied because you don't have the chance of being called out for wearing really short shorts or a shirt that shows too much. I'm not saying schools should have a really strict dress code where students
Dress codes also make people uncomfortable, which means they are attentive. Dress codes are a necessary aspect of school, and they help teenagers to focus more in school. Rules for how to dress prevent boys and girls from being distracted by fancy clothing. Often times, girls tend to focus on what other girls are wearing and how other girls may look super attractive or trashy. In addition, boys look at girls who are dressed in very releasing clothing.
One of the reasons of why we should keep uniforms is the fact that it would ‘cost less instead of buying clothing all the time throughout the school year (5). Students also wouldn't have to worry about getting sent home because if there outfit isn’t dress code appropriate. ‘There is also studies showing that students can focus easier because there not paying attention to what everyone else is wearing and they can actually focus on what their school work(6). Also another good thing about school wearing uniforms is the fact that you won't be able to wear gang or inappropriate words or pictures on a shirt. Even though the students have to wear uniforms depending on the school they are still allowed to accessorise there uniforms with a scarf or a different color sock and they can accessorise their
Dress codes are put into place to promote the safety of the students. An article published by Fresno.edu compiled a list of benefits to a dress code. Some of the benefits included are helping the student dress appropriate to protect the student wearing the clothing and the fellow students. Dress codes give students a feeling of safety and comfort when they see their students wearing similar, if not the same, attire as their fellow classmates and would not feel like a target of bullying if they cannot afford the same brands as their peers if there was a more lenient or no dress code at all. One of my fellow classmate, Rodney Louima, brought light to this topic by telling me, " Dress code is good because it doesn't make a person feel bad that they don't have all the "hot brands" because we all basically look the same no matter what the brand.
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.
Others think that it is the worst idea ever. Since everyone wants to stand out, be different, and not having to be restricted of what clothes they can wear is why students should not have to wear uniforms. Students not being required to wear uniforms would eliminate students from having body insecurities. Students having to wear uniforms makes everything more of a competition. For example, it becomes less of a best-dressed competition and more of a best-body competition.
Students will have a more realistic view of the world; young girls will no longer feel that they are the reason behind a teenage boy’s hormones, and they will be able to express their individualities. Now I’m not saying to walk into school as if you are a hooters employee but dress yourself in the way that expresses you. We should be able to feel comfortable on school grounds, were judged everyday by our peers and the last thing young teenage girls want is to be judged by administration
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.
It would be a lot easier with only seven classes with a study hall too. Then we would have longer lunches or at least more than eight periods. The classes can give us more time to finish our work. The less classes we have the less homework we have to do. So that you won’t keep falling asleep in class if you just get your work finished and turn it in on time instead with a short class with not any time to get to your next class.
East Jordan High School must return to the Dream Big reward cards also because it doesn 't require time. The dream big cards don’t remove from class time because it’s not an event. The card don 't require anytime besides the time to pass them out in Edp. This is a key reason because many teachers are pressed by time to achieve the state-required curriculum.

Now that doesn’t mean if the dress is shorter than your knee, it should result in consequences, because longer fashionable clothes are hard to find . Similarly, if the student’s arms are longer than the shorts, I don’t see an issue with that as long as there is not anything sticking or hanging out of them. During colder weather there are not a lot of problems with the dress code, but when it gets unbearably hot, girls want to pull out their shorts and tank tops. The main reason for the girls dress code rule is because guys are not able to control themselves, but they will have to learn to in the real world. Placing these rules so the guys can’t do anything is not preventing anything, it is just covering up the real problem at school.
Although schools may enjoy all of the new materials, they may forget that corporate sponsorships in high schools can make teens’ way of thinking more dependant on advertisements. Being able to buy new, updated textbooks would mean that students can have accurate information without having to use a technological device.
