Are school uniforms good preparation for future careers?

  • School uniforms is a good preparation for the future

    Schools making students wear school uniforms is definitely something that helps them prepare for the future. It lets them know that in a setting where they must conduct themselves professionally that they should also dress the part. I don't completely agree that it is something that is necessary to learn at such an early age. As far as wearing it goes, they should just use it around high school age and not earlier.

  • They help in the future

    When you get a job it is likely to require a uniform so wearing a uniform as a child will help it won't bother you as much so what I'm saying is that it is good to have uniforms ok so it would be better to go to a school with uniforms

  • Uniforms as preparation for the job at hand.

    When you put on a uniform, whether as a child in school or an adult in the workforce, you are preparing yourself for the task at hand. When a healthcare professional puts on his/her scrubs it clicks something in the mind. You are now no longer an average Joe/Jane, you are a medical professional. It's the same with other professional. Take a good look at someone when they put on dress clothes and head out to a fancy event. They have a different mindset then when they were in the informal clothes. Children deserve the same opportunity to get their heads in the "zone" before they start their school day.

  • Uniforms are good

    Even though we are all very different, school uniforms can help kids to think no matter what social class they are, they are really very similar. It would cut down on bullying and violence. A lot of times bullies pick on the clothes you wear and what you have. In a school uniform system, you couldn’t make fun of someone’s clothes and it would be hard to determine if they were poor or rich. If kids get picked on, they might snap and hurt several people, or get themselves hurt.
    Some great students are terrible dressers. In a school without uniforms, students like this wouldn’t be able to be the great student they could be because of peer pressure. In a school with uniforms, this kid could reach his full potential.

  • I believe in uniforms

    As a student working on a debate, I believe my school should implement a uniform. It does prepare for the future by the discipline that it creates. The uniforms start a sense of unity and trust that we all need with our classmates and future co-workers. Uniforms should definitely be added to many schools across our nation to prepare the future generations.

  • It prepares a child for future jobs

    Many jobs in offices require suits. Some stores require a certain color shirt and some fast food places like Subway provide you with the clothes you need to wear to work so no matter where you go in life you will always be under dress code so why not start early?

  • It's just like work

    Many jobs have a uniform. Many more have a de facto uniform; like an office where one is required to wear a business suit or other attire. Since this is pretty much how it is nowadays, I don't feel there is any harm in getting kids accustomed to it early in their lives.

  • Yes they are

    School uniforms prepare students for the mostly inevitable future if they want to(or have to) be a part of the working class. A lot of common well paying jobs require uniforms (Police Officers, Doctors, Nurses, Chefs, Military, Pilots ect.) and sometimes their is not always the option of being picky in the matter.

  • I think that not

    The school uniform does not improve children results because if you are not so smart, a uniform can not make you more smart.
    So I think that a uniform can not change your personality and also you can not get a job only because you are looking nice or pretty.

  • Uniforms are definetly not acceptable.

    We believe that school uniforms should not be required in any schools. School uniforms can be harmful. First of all, uniforms take away freedom of expression in kids. Kids can not express their interests and hobbies in clothing, instead they have to wear the same thing as everyone else. In the Huffington Post middle school student Kyler Sumter wrote, "They decide to teach us about people like Rosa Parks, Susan B. Anthony and Booker T. Washington... We learn about how these people expressed themselves and conquered and we can't even express ourselves in the hallways." This quote tells us that even middle schoolers think that they are being cut from expressing themselves. They do not want uniforms. Scholastic supports this from one of their surveys sayang that 81% of all Americans believe school uniforms are wrong and do not benefit the kids in any ways. This leaves them with no freedom of expression at all.
    Another big reason why uniforms should not be used is cost. 47% of schools that require uniforms are located in high poverty areas. A lot of kids do not go to school and get an education because uniforms cost outrageous amounts of money. According to ggwash.Org most uniforms cost about $75. Students need about 4 of these every year. That is about $300 each year. That is about $200 more than the cost for a regular wardrobe. Although some people may say that education is free, it is actually funded by taxes. When uniforms also become a factor, parents need to pay another $300 for the education.Uniforms do not decrease bullying or violence, in fact bullying happens about the same amount as it does in non-uniform schools. Uniforms delay transitions into adulthood as well. Students shouldn’t be forced to wear something that doesn’t always fit their body. It is embarrassing. Embarrassment can lead to depression, companies do not want to hire someone who has previous accounts of depression. Depression often leads people to quit their job, no company wants you quitting.

    Adults make choices everyday. Adults choose what to wear everyday, they get to express themselves through clothing. With uniforms children can’t make their own choices on what to wear, this then delays their transition into adulthood. It will take longer for children to be independent. According to Merrilee Boyack, an author and life coach,“When children are independent, they have better self-esteem, confidence, and will be better educated.” Parents always want their children doing things themselves, without uniforms, they will.

  • They won't help us get ready in the morning when we get dressed for work.

    School uniforms do not help students prepare for anything. If they have school uniforms then they won't learn how to pick out their outfits on the morning. Plus, they need to learn to pick out their outfits and not be scared of what others think of what they're wearing. Then, they'll be scared to wear anything other than uniforms.

  • Can embarrass kids

    When students have to wear certain cloths that do not fit their body type it can be embarrassing. Embarrassment can cause future implications like depression, Which makes less companies want to hire that kid when they become an adult. So in my opinion total uniforms totally stink and should not be required.

  • NO, they don't help

    Think about it, there are poor families and having to pay for extra clothes every year for your growing child is just a lot, plus not every job requires you to wear a uniform, so it really isn't "getting you ready for the future!" Most of the time it just makes it worse, because some of the poor families have to buy school clothes from stores like GOODWILL, and other students notice that and they start bullying, while not having uniforms, but making it to wear you can't wear tank tops, you know something make it just a little strict, but not too strict.

  • I think that not

    The school uniform does not improve children results because if you are not so smart, a uniform can not make you more smart.
    So I think that a uniform can not change your personality and also you can not get a job only because you are looking nice or pretty.
