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

  • 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.

  • 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

  • I am opposing this notion

    I agree with the person above me. If you are Muslim, you may not be able to wear your religious clothes, like the jilbab. Besides, you can't just go around making adjustments to certain groups, you have to be consistent. If you aren't, there really isn't an imperative enough reason to be an advocate for this notion. Those are the few reasons out of many why I am opposing.

  • Not not at all

    If a student is forced to wear a uniform then cultural dress won't be allowed in schools. In fact you are not allowed in class at school with a uniform policy if you are not wearing a uniform. If you can not wear religious clothing to school chances are that you will drop out.
