Therefore, I believe every school should use uniforms. Though school uniforms may take away from an individual’s creativity when dressing themselves, they will help rule out bullying because of one’s clothing style. School uniforms are cheaper and they can provide unity among school children as well as teachers. School uniforms can stop the battle of what to wear in the morning which will also get children to school on time. School uniforms can help identify visitors or intruders quickly when they enter the school.
Students should have to wear uniforms to help emphasis from competition on who looks better to better academics, less violence, self-esteem and personal achievements. Many experts insist that uniforms improve learning, make schools safer, and happier students feel happier. (Tarshis, 2011). Wearing uniforms can actually enforce a more professional look to many students. When students arrive to school looking professional, they tend to become more focused on their education.
When a child knows what is expected of them, as far as dress goes, it helps with distractions in the classroom. Uniforms ecourage modesty and also reduces the need for discipline from teachers because a student is not following dress code. When uniforms are in place, children come to class looking professional which can promote a better learning environment. The last and possibly the most important reason why I believe school uniforms are necessary is for social equality. School uniforms reduce the stress children feel when trying to fit in with their peers.
School uniforms should be required in public schools because their use would lead to higher education, less violence, and lower cost to parents. By requiring school uniforms in public schools, education will be improved. A dress code will enforce discipline toward learning. Uniforms improve a person’s outlook toward success. Students generally act the way they are dressed.
School uniforms improve school academics, prevent gang violence, and assist families, who can not afford expensive clothing. Worrying more about others, rather than themselves, students pay more attention to the appearance of their peers instead of their academics. To begin, if school uniforms became apart of the school policy, students’ academics would improve phenomenally. Hanley noted that “The reason for the policy [was] to further improve ascending test scores and provide a safe, comfortable learning environment” (A1+). Clearly, school administrators wanted to improve test scores, and they figured if students dressed the same, then they would have no other choice but to focus on their school work.
School uniforms should be required because they reduce peer pressure by not having to wear anything special because others are. School uniforms also help reduce bad behaviors in schools. They do this because if students are all dressed the same other students don’t need to show off to get more attention. School uniforms also help improve student’s grades. They help in prove grades because the student’s concentrate more on academics rather than what they are wearing.
Students generally act the way they are dressed. With fewer fashion distractions, school will be seen as a priority for teaching and learning rather than trend competitions. This alteration leads to modification in grades because it’s much easier to focus when everyone is dressed alike. Furthermore, a student’s attendance also improves; with the relief of picking out a new outfit every morning. Schools requiring uniforms will experience reduction in violence.
Students go to school to learn and grow their knowledge so they can then achieve their goals. They don’t go there to be judged and be a victim of bullying just because of what they wear and what they have and not have. School uniforms help create an effective learning atmosphere because it removes disturbance (Adkins). More students can concentrate better when everyone is not looking and laughing at them. They feel much safer with school uniforms and learn so much better.
Those are the three main reasons why schools should adopt dress code: one it will save families money and time, then teens will stop trying to impress their peers with what they wear and focus more on school because everyone will look similar, and will make a better school and better environment. Families will save money and time by buying polos and khakis. Teens will stop trying to impress peers by wearing similar clothing, and it makes a better school environment by lowering gang related actions and grades will improve because teen will put academics before fashion. So lets adopt dress code in public schools.
School uniforms should be part of the school systems, because statistics had shown that students who wear uniforms are doing better than dress codes. More students also feel a sense of equality among each other and there are fewer judgments of others. It allows teacher quickly to identify people who do not belong in the building and limit the ways that gangs can identify themselves. School outfit provides students identity, individual spirit, and pride. Uniforms are increasing throughout different schools.
