As children, we blossom into our adult characters. Part of this development is our freedom of expression. School uniforms severely hinder our ability to express ourselves. By having everyone uniform, you sacrifice the personality that comes with unique clothing choices. It is unfair to the students and often costs money for the parents.
In my opinion, forcing children to wear school uniforms is antiquated and does more harm than good in our current society. Our society is heavily rooted in independence and individualism, and school uniforms infringe on these ideals. Uniforms often make kids feel like outcasts compared to their peers who are free to dress as individuals, especially when children reach adolescence.
I think school uniforms are bad because it doesn't give you the ability to express yourself by wearing what you want to wear to school especially. I also think it is bad because I think it increases the chances of bullying at school on the types of different clothes you wear and how you wear the clothes.....I just think it is bad!!
What if the student has sensory problems and takes off their uniform or is defiant to their parents? Uniforms may cause significant problems beyond recognition for kids with tactile defensiveness. The issue I am concerned with is the feeling of the clothing on a student's skin, and not visual styles and colors.
This will significantly distract students with tactile defensiveness. Collars on the uniforms may feel like knives cutting the student's neck off. The fabric may feel like sandpaper rubbing on skin to some students.
Sure, bullying may arise from certain styles and differences, but that does not give them the right to torture children with sensory issues.
Would you rather be bullied by students or teachers?
Why do some people prefer to wear certain types of colors and styles? To make themselves look better. Since there is such a variety of kinds of clothes, students and adults both pick what type of clothing makes them look better. If everyone is wearing the same colors and styles, students won't be able to cover up their insecurities, or, rather, feel confident with their image. As a result, there may be the same amount of, if not more bullying. Choice of clothing leads to more confidence.
When students wear uniforms they can be bullied less. Some times students get bullied because of their clothing choice. If they wear a uniform, that wont happen! Uniforms also save a lot of time in the morning beacause kids don't have to choose what to wear to school.
Because of that, i think uniforms cause more good than bad.
I think that uniforms do more good than harm because it gives us more of an opportunity to focus in school instead of worrying about our clothes. We also get more sleep and don't have to worry about clothing in the morning. Uniforms also take stress off of the popularity impact at middle school.
1. Dress codes or uniforms can help schools be less divided by race and culture.
2. Students often divide into subgroups based on clothing and musical style.
Dress codes or uniforms may help reduce social fragmentation based on style.
3. The work world requires an understanding of dress codes and uniforms.
Students need to understand how to dress for the job they hope to get.
4. Students on the edge of socially acceptable dress are often targets of bullies.
Dress codes might reduce some targets for bullying.
This is what I consider to be the only valid point. I guess sometimes students from other schools do go to other schools to cause trouble. I guess if they're in a t-shirt and baggy clothes they will stick out like a sore thumb. So from that respect the school will be protected from unruly outsiders. However, I somehow doubt uniforms will stop circle beatings in the pit and students sneaking in contraband weapons. I am also sure it would not be that hard to borrow uniforms from friends who may go to the uniform school. If there is a will, there is a way, especially with students who have lots of time conjure up ways to create mischief.
School kids are always competing to be the best and to have the best. No matter how often you tell them that looks do not matter, that the type of clothes do not matter, they're not going to believe it. Having school uniforms at least gives everyone regardless of their income and style an even playing field. No one would be bullied over their choice of clothes.
uniforms are needed for reasons like peer pressure,focus and gangs students can feel peer pressured to wear the same thing as the higher class students because they get told by other kids to wear clothing that they dont wanna wear gangs because in high school sometime middle school students try to show bad influence by wearing gang colors that can end in fighting. last reason is idintification.
When everyone is uniform, no one should distract from anyone else. This is the idea, so a better work environment is attained.
Another concept is, when everyone is in uniform and a team work group forms a much stronger bond forms. It is the same reason jobs put in dress codes. Instilling professionalism and teamwork at an early age can only benefit children.
The issue is there will always be rebellious children who will be counter productive to the cause. These children are good too, they challenge the status quo and if a uniform can help them grow too, then it's good too.
