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. It could affect how they act at home by that I mean that kids act the way they wanna be and dress how they want to dress. But if we change that their minds are saying that wanting
Public schools should not be allowed to enforce uniforms on the students by reason of having uniforms gives students a message that their identity is not important. In the article "Why School Dress Codes May Be Harmful To Girls," by Claire Felter, gives an explanation about how school uniforms and strict dress codes are shamming students and having the students think that what they wear is not important. It also explains how some students are feeling degraded and/or diminished on the grounds that they think uniforms are a type of discipline. On page 1, Claire Felter states, "but the result is often institutions telling impressionable young people that their identity and the way they choose to present themselves is unimportant, rather than actually
In The Giver by Lois Lowry, Jonas’s society has been shown to make everyone look the same, and Jonas wishes it was different. It is clearly shown that before the ‘sameness’, people had different skin colors. As The Giver was explaining the concept of colors to Jonas, he said, “There was a time, actually-you'll see this in the memories later-when flesh was many different colors. That was before we went to Sameness. Today flesh is all the same” (Lowry 94). Not only does the society control what they see, they also control what they wear. During the ceremony when Lily was going to become an eight, the author describes, “Jonas watched and cheered as Lily marched proudly to the stage, became an Eight and received the identifying jacket that she
Many people have different opinions of school uniforms. Some people think they have a positive effect on the classroom, others thinks it has a negative effect of the classroom. School uniforms are certain clothes that are worn by all students at the school and usually have the school logo or emblem. School uniforms were first worn in the 16th century by a school called the Christ Hospital school, in London. It was the first school ever to start wearing uniforms. After many centuries school uniforms became more popular and now about 20 percent of schools in the U.S have school uniforms and about 50 percent have strict dress codes. Some people say that uniforms should be used in all school because there are many pros to it like better school behavior, but others say that there are a lot of cons to school uniforms like they hinder student creativity. I think that there are so many pros of school uniforms and that they are a great thing to have in all schools. I think that school uniforms would help all school behavior dramatically and it would stop conflicts before they come up. The cons of school uniforms are not very strong and they are not cons at all they are just pros in disguise.

Regan Narine couldn't have been more eager to get through his first day of 3rd grade at Athlos Leadership Academy- “I was excited to meet my teacher, get new friends but instead I was sent home.” He and his little brother Rayshawn were pulled from class in the morning for not wearing the school logo on their shirts.

You might be thinking about the schools that rich kids go to in movies and TV shows or you might be thinking about Catholic schools with small children all wearing the same colored school uniforms. This is probably what most people imagine. We associate uniforms with students of foreign countries and private schools. Thoughts of students dressing in school uniforms have led to stereotyping and a gloomy outlook on schools pushing for a uniform policy. We live in a society that says you must express yourself and be an individual at all cost, but some fear that uniforms display us as robots who lack the ability to express ourselves, however, this is far from the truth. School uniforms give students a sense of unity because they feel like they can fit in without fear of being too different. Making a dress uniform mandatory will decrease sexual harassment, create more interesting humans and make schools safer.
Just envision moseying into school one frosty and crisp autumn morning. The sun is luminescing with its array of sunshine, you are passing your classes, and everything is going well. Suddenly, you get to notice around you that everyone looks the same and all look indistinguishable as it astounds you a little. Within more inspection, you grasp the concept that every guy is wearing polos and khakis and every girl is wearing the same as well! Then you detect what the magnitude of the situation is…school uniforms. Who would want to see everyone look the same? Uniforms look hideous, plain, and just an overall abominable enforcement in schools. Most students hate wearing them, and from experience, I was one of those students back in high school. School uniforms are overall a horrible enforcement because uniforms restraint one’s individuality, cost a good amount of money, and are despised by most of the student body.
In the eyes of many students, school uniforms are dull, unvaried and impede on their personal choices; in the eyes of the administration, school uniforms can be seen as a godsend. The argument concerning the students’ and the school’s views on school uniforms has been a controversial problem for a while due to the heavily clashing opinions of adults and children. In the beginning, school uniforms were used as a way of “schooling” minorities in the United States. Such examples of the minorities are women, Native Americans, African Americans, etc. It was believed to “train” their bodies that were believed to not be as aesthetically dispositioned. In early twentieth-century Argentina, the color of white smocks became a symbol of the “homogenous” environment in schools. While school uniforms offer both benefits and downsides to families and schools, it is important to go deeper into the statistics and facts that allow the topic to be this controversial. Some
Permitting school uniforms has been a controversial issue for the past decade. Nowadays, most schools require students to wear uniforms as a form of unity and an identity creation for the school’s name; it first happened in England amongst boarding schools, and it spread all around the world afterwards (History of School Uniforms). It has affected a lot of children negatively by degrading their development from childhood to adulthood; it also affects the child’s. Despite these drawbacks, some people believe that setting rules to wear matching clothing amongst students is a way of forcing discipline. School uniforms should be permitted because it degrades to a person’s development, and it affects his self-image negatively.
Imagine having to wear a plaid skirt or a button down shirt and tie every single day of school. Being forced to wear a specific uniform to a public schools can severely impact students and their families. With the growing amount of public schools choosing to require uniforms, more and more people are speaking out against this action. Students should not be required to wear uniforms in public schools because they limit self-expression, they cause students to feel self-conscious, and they are expensive.
“Uniforms sends a message and remind students that they are in school. One element of the message that when students are going to school that is their place of work” a quote taken from Joe Palumbo, the Co-Principal of Newacomb Academy. School uniforms create an identity for a school because without them there would be more difficulty in students to maintain school rules, and school uniforms teach students to dress properly and take pride in their appearance. One purpose of a school uniform is for identification and people will be able to distinguish which school students go to based on type of clothing they wear. I strongly believe that school uniforms should not be banned from schools because they are cost-efficient, promote equality among
