should there be a dress code in all schools or just catholic?
Debate Rounds (2)
Well, first of, I'm not saying that all schools should adopt uniforms, I am here to just to support the use of uniforms.
Lets introduce a basic fact here. Many public schools across the world have uniforms, and for some nations that is standard practice, so it's not just private Catholic schools.
Second, I think that wearing school uniforms eliminates some peer pressure and the focus on appearance. There is no denying that teenagers tend to obsess over their looks and what brands they have then what really matters: an education. It may not stop all bullying, but then again I don't suppose uniforms have anything to do with an obsessive "crush".
In addition, I think what this girl said really rings true when talking about uniforms and freedom of expression:
"If you're really a true individual, then you should be able to express yourself without wearing certain clothing."

Saying that dress codes (I assume uniforms) are lame and worthless are unsubstaniated because you haven't provided any real facts too support your case. You even said that "i know that it makes all kids equal and limits bull(y)ing".
School uniforms don't level the playing field. Not all school uniforms are flattering to every body type. In all likelihood, the selected uniform will not fit well on every pupil in the student population. Overweight and even underweight students may hear taunting and harassing comments made by their peers because of their ill-fitting uniforms. Also, students who may have faced bullying in the past may continue to face the wrath of their tormentors, despite how they look in their uniforms, as bullies always find ways to harass their victims.
in conclustion like i said uniforms should be banned they just lead to bad things.
Uniforms actually tend to be cheaper, as long as your school doesn't require clothing like suits. You could continue to wear those clothes as long as you wash them. However, with casual wear, parents usually have to buy a larger vatriety of clothing.
SInce my laptop is at 1% battery, I leave with this quote:
"Having to wear smart clothes encourages children to respect their school and their teachers and behave themselves. This is because of the association between smart clothes and work. Casual wear at school can also make students feel over-relaxed and 'at home,' meaning they don't focus as much on work. A lot of schools are bringing back school uniform because they want to improve discipline.
