If you wear what they force you to wear where's the fun in that for you. It doesn't allow you to wear what you like. Kids like to wear young stuff like their fav band or a catch phrase if schools take that right away you won't get to express yourself.
School uniforms do take away a student's right to choose what they wear. Whether the student really needs to have this right is the bigger debate. I think school uniforms should be an option for students that way they can choose to wear them or choose to wear something else.
A lot of places of employment have a dress code, whether you're restricted to wearing a uniform or abide by a standard dress code (khaki pants or dress pants, collared or buttoned shirt, neck tie, appropriate shoes, etc.) When you're away from your job, or school, you wear what you want.
School uniforms statistically increase a school's overall student performance. When you are more concerned with what John and Jane are wearing than what the teacher is saying about the Law of Sillogism, then you obviously aren't learning as effectively as you could be. Although, i'm not very concerned with fashion, and girls tend to flip out when they don't "Look cute"
School uniforms do not take away from student's rights. This is because of the fact that the schools are their own institution. Members of these institutions can be subject to any rule regarding dress code that the institution has. School uniforms are no different from company dress codes and uniforms.
There is no place in the Constitution where it outlines that children have the right to dress in the latest fashions at the expense of their parents. Uniforms keep the focus on learning. There's nothing about wearing a school uniform that could be remotely considered as taking away the rights of a student.
Students who wear uniforms may feel like they're losing their ability to express themselves, especially today in a generation where kids really like to decorate their clothing and create their own styles. However, kids are free to dress how they want at home, and also over the summer. The few days that they're at school and needing to wear a uniform will also equip them for their future jobs, when they will be expected to dress in a certain way. Overall, it can also be beneficial for helping kids feel like they fit in and are part of a cohesive group.
As minors, students do not have the full set of civil rights as adults. It is necessary that students wear a uniform in order to keep a sense of order on campus. It is not a violation of their rights becaue they do not have any rights, at all. They are in the care of their parents and teachers.
No, school uniforms do not take away students' rights as students have no right to self expression within the school environment. Schools are a place of learning, and school uniforms ensure that a student does not take up a distracting form of self expression through dressing in an unruly and unsightly manner.
School uniforms are usually hated by the students. They feel as though they have a right to be able to choose the way they appear. However, school uniforms do have real benefits depending on what the school's goals are. In an effort to reduce trashy dressing and preserve the standard of appearance at the school, uniforms are a good way to go.
