Are School Uniforms Band-Aids? Generations of young adolescents have been bullied for the types of clothes they wear. Uniforms were thought to be the answer to this problem. Sadly this example has failed.
Students who wear uniforms should not have to worry about their appearance since uniforms are supposed to fix this dilemma. Today school uniforms are to be more of a punitive measure meant to deny the student’s rights of freedom , expression, individuality. Schools can adopt a school uniform policy without resorting to a mandatory uniform.
In 2009-2010 uniforms were the official play, 19% of public schools are forced to wear uniforms. This became the brilliant idea from many other's because young adolescents bully one another over the things they wear. Schools made it final that this would be the fix and for the past 7 years this has been the school code. Is there really no report in those 7 years about uniforms? Children are always going to be bullied no madder what they wear or how much time they spend getting ready for school. You could be a child with life skills and all you want is to talk to other peers and i'm sure through the day there's always that one group that is "perfect" and makes fun of that child or children. A uniform is no way to fix the actions of children.
Some schools dont take inconcideration the families that don't have money for them to take care of their own families plus a dress code for their child because some children will never stop being bullies to others. So many other's suffer. How is this fair ? Well everyone say's its not but what can they do ? We have so many bully programs and some kids take it to heart and then some laugh it off.. There's really no aswnser to us young adolesne problems but what can be said is that uniforms violate a students rights to freedom expression. Basically kids are told to look alike to get an education. Kids that have little to no funds need to find away to meet the requirments to the dress code policy. But princibles can sit there and talk to a wrestler, football player that is out of uniform and be perfectly fine with it. But as soon as someone who is not a daily visitor etc they are in school for a detention or sent down to the nurse to be changed ... If this doesnt set problems then i am not sure what does!
