Dress codes are not helping schools like they are meant to do; they are actually harming students in the school. Dress codes shame students and make them insecure about their bodies. They also disrupt precious class time that is vital to students. Buying clothes to fit the school dress code is costlier than some families can afford. Not only are dress codes stifling, but they are also unfair toward specific body types and different genders. Dress codes also decrease a student’s ability to be different from all of their peers in the way they dress. Schools should not have dress codes because they are sexist, unfair and disrupt class time.
That school was a weird school different from most regular middle school’s. I seemed to fit in real quickly though because that school made me who I am now. I went there from 6th to 8th grade, and there was some good times in the Charter School days. The thing I liked the most about that school is the dance class/singing class we has the best teacher his name was Mr. Blackburn he was both funny and serious, and made that class really fun. I learned how sew at the Charter School which was beneficial if I needed to sew something. There was a class called games class it was PE basically but we called it Games class. We played games like bunker ball which is the teacher is in a bunker with a certain amount and the students with one life. When I graduated at the Charter School we went to place in Carmel where the graduation had happened in. Everybody said there speeches, and when it was time for me to say my graduation speech all I said was I graduated to keep it short and sweet. While all of the others said some important memories they had at the Charter School. When they showed pictures of the past them I was there for a little bit then left to go eat at a chinese
The controversy about dress codes asks an important question: are dress codes targeting girls and transgender students? Several sites including:https://www.adl.org/education/resources/tools-and-strategies/table-talk/what's-fair-and-unfair-about-student-dress-codes, stated that when they spoke to girls they said they feel shamed and judged by dress codes. Are dress codes limiting students creativity. Should these girls really feel harassed men and boys at their school?
Dress codes is a standard of clothing for school, office, club, or restaurant. Schools have dress codes to promote professionalism and a distraction-free learning environment. More standards of dressings are set in place for girls than males. This causes an unequal amount of bias towards women and sexism to occur in the dress code.
Most of the people there were obnoxious, and wanted to fit in and gain the attention of everyone else by doing the worst, craziest things. This involved things such as breaking school rules, ditching class, and etcetera. I believe at one point, a kid actually ran a dangerous distance away from the school in order to gain recognition from his or her peers, or possibly some other unknown reason. Other than that, there were the usual loud-mouthed brats who seemed as if they were going to be unemployed in the future due to utter laziness and recklessness, people who acted as if they were the nicest around but were actually manipulative and snobby, and the list goes
Although the schools portrayed in media were all different, they all had the same type of social set up. There were the evident jocks, the theatre kids, the nerds, the jokesters and more. I entered middle school and then high school, along with the rest of my generation, thinking that this was normal. The people you sat with in 4th grade began to divide. People began to develop cliques and groups. The “You can’t sit with us” became very
School dress codes are the most enforcing and restrictive policy out of all the school policies. I know everyone hates and don’t understand why we need dress codes. Sometimes dress codes can be ridiculous and nonsense. I’m on the same page as them. Dress codes informs high school students what we can wear and cannot wear.
How many times have you heard of a child being sent home due to their outfit? In so many towns and cities there is ridiculous dress codes. Most of the dress codes are directed towards females. These rules somewhat make them feel as if they have to hid their bodies so they won’t distract men. High school dress codes are detrimental to all student’s confidence outside and inside the classroom.
At the end of my sophomore year, my humanities teachers gave my class a project, one bigger than we'd ever had. We had to take a theme or subject from the year and twist it into a presentation with a thesis. I took the idea of oppression from learning about Hitler through a classmate's presentation and I did research on the oppression of the female gender, specifically through a lens that applied to myself. The high school dress code.
"I just feel like [the dress code] needs to be explained better, like they need to do a better job of presenting it to us, instead of just saying we can wear crew necks and then taking us out of class if we wear our crew necks," (Tori Taylor). This quote is a perfect example of how dress codes are not properly executed in schools all across America. Varying depending on school, dress codes can be confusing and extremely hard to navigate. Girls all over the country have been forced to take time out of their day to change or even leave the school, because of shirts they’ve worn a thousand times before. If there is a shirt that supposedly breaks dress code, a girl should be reprimanded every single time she wears it, right? Wrong. This is because
7th and 8th grade year at Lake Road were atrocious. My teachers made me feel worthless as they screamed “You can’t get from point A to point B.” and “You’re so stupid it’s not even funny.” The best one came from my least favorite teacher, “No one likes you. None of them laugh with you they all laugh at you. You need to grow up because you’re annoying.” The teachers made fun of me and stood in the hall talking about my friends and I as we walked to class. I didn’t understand what I did wrong to make the teachers dislike me so much. I had good grades, started at every sport I played, never got in trouble unless it was for talking, and they still treated me as if I wasn’t even good enough to go to the school. One day it got so bad I called my mom and we went to the Obion County Board of Education.
At Trump high school. It had an awful atmosphere. With harsh teachers, and brilliant students, who works hard. The students in language arts were doing speech and debate.
I loved it for most of the time there until middle school. After elementary school, nobody was the same anymore and i was the only one that seemed to notice. I went through alot of harsh bullying in middle school all throughout sixth and seventh grade. Little sweet Sammy was completely walked over by the "Queen Bees" and the "Wannabes". Nonetheless, there comes a time when the going gets tough and you have to move on. I begged my mom to switch me out of that school because I just couldn't take it anymore. Nevertheless she finally caved and I switched into my local public middle school. I had never felt more free. Even if I didn't have that many friends, there was so many people that I just kind of went unnoticed and no longer had to keep trying to please
