Should kids be forced to wear uniforms?
Should kids be forced to wear uniforms? Will uniforms really help kids? Most schools are debating this issue. A lot of kids would instantly say “No.” Although I believe that we should not have uniforms, there are plenty of reasons why we should have uniforms. Uniforms cannot help the school out, or can they? One thing that the school would benefit from enforcing school uniforms is no violations of the school dress code. Sometimes kids are called up to the office during class time because their clothes violate the dress code. This time up in the office could have been used for education, but instead they are up in the office getting a lab coat. Kids would not be able to violate the school dress code if they were all wearing the same outfits. However, that would mean no kid would be able express themselves. Kids like to express themselves in different ways and that will not be possible if they are forced to wear one type of clothing. Some kids are not as lucky as others. Some kid’s parents are rich while others may be poor. If the school enforced uniforms, no one could judge each other by just the look of their clothing. Although this is a positive for the kids, there is a negative for the school. If they ever needed to identify a student for whatever reason, it would be nearly impossible to identify that student unless you had help. If a student commits vandalism in the bathroom, for example, the camera might catch them but as long as the camera does not catch their face, it would be impossible to find out who did it. You may be thinking, “Having kids wear uniforms will cause them to make better grades.” This might be true, but would you want to risk the chance of losing some of your students just because you force them to wear uniforms? My guess is that most people might simply give up because they are forced to do something unpleasant. Most people would not like to wear uniforms...
