If schools could automatically have more safety, a stronger sense of unity within students, and higher self esteem for every individual student at a minimal cost without transgressing any laws, or stepping over students rights it is doubtful that many would turn up their nose to all of these things. There is no difference between this situation and the benefits that school dress codes would provide. While the majority of public schools do not require uniforms, the ones that do report it as a large success (School Uniform Statistics 3). In one study conducted by NAESP, 79 percent of principals said that school uniforms positively affected classroom discipline, 67 saw an improvement on students’
Many students feel that school uniforms are unfair or unnecessary because you can´t show your personality through your clothing or you can´t express yourself. Most students don´t understand how much school uniforms would help. School uniforms will change multiple things in a positive way. They will keep students in a better learning environment. School uniforms should be enforced because the amount of bullying would go down and it will keep students focused on school work.
How would it feel to be made fun of every day at school just because of what you wear? Is that fair to the person being made fun of when they have no control over the matter? I think not. If schools required their students to wear uniforms, It would make student feel more equal, there wouldn’t be discrimination just because of what a person is wearing: everyone would be wearing the same thing. Schools should require uniforms for the following reasons: an increase in test scores, a decrease in school violence, and it will also help relieve the financial issues of buying school clothes. “‘I certainly think it will help. Having uniforms will reduce the financial burden on parents, it will eliminate dress competition and it will reduce the number of instances of stealing or having clothing stolen,’ said Lawson” (“Will”).
As a society we value the individual choices that we are able to decide upon in our everyday life. School uniforms have a negative effect on students, due to the lack of individuality and self-image that they are able to express. Therefore passing student policies requiring school uniforms is misleading as it creates more issues than it solves. Students should feel they are different from everyone else and have to freedom to act the way they want and wear what they want. Enforcing school uniforms does not affect academic situations in any way for uniforms to be mandatory. Schools need to re-think their decision on school uniform policies for the mental and physical well-being of their students.
Over the past couple of years, there has been an ongoing debate about whether students should wear uniforms. There are some people who believe that it does have an influence on students as far as improving grades or behavior. Opposing arguments say that students wearing uniforms restricts them from expressing their individuality. Wearing uniforms should be a requirement in public schools. The reason why students should have to wear uniforms is that it helps focus more on learning rather than clothing, uniform apparel can be less expensive than casual clothing, and it reduces violence in schools.
It is a belief that school uniforms teach students to respect their learning environment and behave themselves, and, therefore improving discipline. However, that assumption isn’t entirely correct. Researchers have actually found that school uniforms don’t make students better behaved. According to a study of more than 4,500 students, those who wore a school uniform did not have fewer behavior problems or better attendance. Forcing students to wear uniforms lead to more problems and misbehavior instead of encouraging discipline. Students could get into trouble if they did not wear their uniforms correctly. Many kids in today’s society cannot stand the thought of someone telling them what to do, especially what to wear. Instead of encouraging respect, uniforms may cause rebellions. For example, in 2009, a group of students at John A. Ferguson Senior High School rebelled against their school uniforms. Instead of following their school uniform requirements, the students wore what they thought would be a better school uniform to school. Not only uniforms don’t earn schools the respect from its students, but it may also lead to more problems.
Seeing students wear uniforms in school may seem either too strict or too traditional, but when one figures out, and understand, the reason why for this formality, more will see the advantage of wearing school uniforms. Some may feel that uniforms should not be required in schools because they think it’s a waste of money, students don’t want to be told what to wear, or because they don’t want to look the same like everyone else at school. However, uniforms are much less expensive than the clothing brands that students wear, so parents are saving more money. Students also need to understand that they can’t always get what they want, they need to realize that not everything is going to be their way. Students don’t want to wear the same clothing like others because they want to stand out, but this can create conflict at school because the students will begin to judge each other by what they wear, and if everyone wears uniforms we would be avoiding these types of conflicts.
In my opinion, regulation school uniforms hinder learning and development in students rather than provide an advantage. They have shown to increase bullying and ridicule among students rather than decrease it, as one might be led to believe. Furthermore, school uniforms violate the Charter of Rights and Freedoms (s. 2(b): Freedom of Expression) through restricting students from expressing themselves through clothing. Additionally, although there may appear to be many benefits to uniforms, studies have shown a surprising lack of evidence that uniforms have any positive effect to students’ learning and development whatsoever. For these reasons, uniforms are more likely detrimental, rather than encouraging, to the education of students.
School uniforms and dress codes are becoming a popular trend among schools. Most Students and some parents don’t agree with the enforcement with school uniforms, saying that uniforms are taking away self-expression in schools. But, school uniforms are not a negative thing to have. Yes, uniforms and some very strict dress codes limit what the students have to choose to wear to school every day, but it doesn’t limit them from learning which is the main reason they are in school. Some students treat school as a fashion show, so eliminating the size of wardrobe shifts the attention toward their school work. Although requiring students to wear school uniforms may violate their self-expression in some ways, a uniform is supposed to be looked
School uniforms can benefit low income areas, places where crimes are high, and even to help the image of the school. I?m not saying with school uniforms that there will be no bullying or no crimes what I am saying is that school uniforms eliminate some of the issues. You can believe me because I have done a lot of research and checked myself with multiple different websites. I will first tell you the need for these uniforms. Then I will propose a solution, and last I will tell this affects you and maybe your future kids.
A major reason that schools should have uniforms is because students will get along better. They wouldn’t compare each other based on whose wearing what. This is opposed to a school with no uniform some students will feel inferior to the one’s wearing brand name
