School uniform: Do school uniforms satisfy religious and cultural needs?

  • They do and they dont

    The First Amendment allows for mandatory uniform policies or dress codes in the public schools. However, it also generally permits exemptions from such policies or codes for students to wear religious clothes, head coverings, symbols or other attire. Under many circumstances policies or codes that prohibit students from wearing religious clothes or other attired are unconstitutional or unlawful. People that are involved are the students and the teachers and the issue presented in this bill is that the bill says that religious students would affected them if they don’t wear the uniforms. This bill is important because it make
    s the students at the school wear uniforms instead of wherein inappropriate Clothes and my position on the bill is against school uniforms and for school uniforms.

  • Yes, to an extent.

    School uniforms help those who are poor and do not have proper clothing for schools, and also makes it easy to have every student feel they are the same no matter their belief, or cultural. However, it is still important to allow teens and children to express themselves and be creative.

  • Yes, School uniforms satisfy religious and cultural needs.

    I believe that school uniforms satisfy religious and cultural needs. Some religious schools, such as Catholic schools, want students to wear uniforms so there is no distractions from clothing, such as girls wearing too tight shirts or guys wearing jeans that fall down below their hips. Cultural needs are met because uniforms get rid of the "have" and "have not" feeling among students--some students have designer clothes, while others do not.

  • I object, your honor!!

    With once being enrolled in a uniform-enforcing school, I saw many Muslim girls head coverings get punished such as detention, and such, and be placed in an isolated classroom so they would be tempted to take off their head coverings... Not cool I, being a christian dude dont care much, but would not hesitate to report this school and sue them. I have friends that are affected by this.

  • School doesn't support religious needs

    People might need to wear a bracelet but some schools ban jewellery
    This in very racist but schools teach student not to be racist and there are doing this themselves.My friend was a Muslim and she needed to wear a hyjab but she was told not to wear a hyjab because it is not part of the uniform

  • They don't satisfy religious people

    They are made to wear certain clothing and religious people don't like to wear them but they are made to wear it. They get into trouble for wearing something other than what they are suppose to. Some people find that wearing school uniforms go against what they believe in so then they feel like they are going against it.

  • Why should they

    Wearing school uniforms can be very distracting, during class. Students could be fixing, playing, e.C.T. With their uniforms. And the cost well they cost more then regular clothes would. So why would u want to buy your child something that she/he would be wearing, everyday of the week! It's outrages

  • Certain cultures and religions do not wear certain cloth. There is not a way that this is satisfying to religions and cultures

    This is not a way that cultures and religions like things. School uniforms destroy religion and individuality. They are locked up in cloth that they are not allowed to wear or goes against what they believe. So why should we still have uniforms around anymore. Uniforms are bad for children and other people.

  • Kids should be able to show there cultures

    Even if its free clothe it u still need to pays and most schools with uniformes are pravite and take lost of money to get in and they will trop out cause of the prise people should be able to express them self were aver they go and uniforms dont show that

  • Not at all

    Using the example of muslims, if their is a young muslim girl who is going to school with a uniform, and she habitually wears a headscarf or a veil or a jihab, than she would have to give up her religous beliefs, or not go to that school. Or if a sihk wears a turban, he will not be able to. Or if a jew wants to wear his kippa, he should be able to, no matter what.

  • Religion And Culture Is Restricted Under The Rule Of School Uniforms

    Under school uniforms, personal expression, including religious expression is restricted. Let me begin with the idea of religious expression being infringed upon. There have been many cases of Muslim girls who have not been allowed to wear their religious wear to school under the ordinance of a dress code. This is a not something like a proclamation of faith (as a cross is to a Christian) but is is part of the religion itself. Many other religions also have these sort of "dress codes" like Jewish people and their Kippahs. (The round flat Jewish hat.) Next comes cultural. Culture is part of who you are. Whether it be Native or Asian or the like, these sort of cultures that are expressed through dress for some people. You can't just ban part of who someone is, you can not ban something that is part of them as a person. That is too important of a thing to get rid of during school hours. What we need is not a uniform, what we need is stricter enforcement of the dress code
