The School RoutineImagine having to wake up and put on the same thing you worethe day before and the day before that! School uniforms are becoming morecommon in our society and have gone past private to public schools. Studentsand even most parents don’t agree with the enforcement with schooluniforms; stating that uniforms take away the right ofself-expression.
School uniforms are not a negative thing to have. Yes,uniforms limit what the students have to choose to wear to school everyday, but it doesn’t limit them from learning each year debates rage over thepositive and negative effects of school uniforms, and there are many differentpoints of view. I believe that school uniforms have more positive effects than negative.The positive effects are reducing abuse, control dress code and looks different.First of all, school uniforms reduce abuse and bullyingbetween students. Some students get bullied for their clothes which effectstheir life and their grades too.
Based on a study around 16,000 child missesschool daily because they are afraid from their friends. The students thatcan’t afford buying well, enough clothes as the other kids, they’re mostgetting bullied. So by requiring school uniforms eliminates the chances ofbullying.
Bullies usually pick on kids based on what they wear. Whathappens when they are wearing the same thing? Everyone will be dressed thesame, leaving less room to get picked on. When I was in 9th gradeI went to school that doesn’t have uniforms. I used to see many gets gettingbullied because of what they wear.

The dress code also teach the students how to be moreprofessional. And I mean by being professional is when later on when they havejob interview.
Having boys dressed as gentlemen and the girls dressed asladies. There are kids walking around with pants sagging to the ground andunderwear showing. Some kids will even be wearing inappropriate logos onshirts or jackets. That gives the school a bad look and reputation.Schools with uniforms have all the students dressed nicely in the assigneduniforms.
Also the dress code gives a good look for the whole school. It helpsstudents to focus to their teachers not what their friends wearing. By this wayit will help them improving their grades. Some parents claimed it’s a lot ofmoney to spend on clothes. These parents think that because they already buytheir children’s own clothes so there’s no point to spend more money on school uniforms.
Based on my personal experience, I used to go to public school with uniform.Life was so easy because I don’t have to think about what I will wear the nextday for school. There was two uniforms which are one for the basic days and theother one is when we have gym. And we couldn’t wear the gym uniform on anyother day, it had to be the gym day only. Besides that, uniform help the students and the teacher.Uniforms makes everything easier in schools. It will help students identifyteachers faster.
It will also help the security know if there’s any strangers enteredthe school. By this way the school will be safer for everyone. Additionally forthese reasons uniforms make students safe inside and outside the school.
Uniformsmakes it difficult on gang members to show themselves. It also helps school securityquickly spot intruders and any other individuals who do not belong. Reducesthe risk of students being robbed to and from school, or for that matter inschool, of expensive clothing, jewelry, etc. Bolos3Theimportant reason from having uniforms is students can’t carry weapons inschools. Some of the other reasons are improving attendance, increase a senseof belonging and school pride and Diminish economic and social barriers betweenstudents.
Also according to Ivan Chan Ka-chun an eleven years old student at NLSILui Kwok Pat Fong College said “Teachers and principals should wear a schooluniform as they are a part of the school. If they wear the uniform, peoplewould know that they are working in that school, and they would feel a strongersense of belonging”. Also teachersshould wear uniforms so they can support and make students feel better aboutwearing uniform. In the same time according to Prudence Mak thirteen years oldstudent that went to Tak Nga Secondary School said, “Why should teachers? Butunlike students, teachers are already grown-up, and have professional judgementto decide what they should wear”. Overall, school uniforms are a great thing to have. Even thoughthis argument whether or not school uniforms violates the students right toself- expression will be never ending. There seems to be more positiveoutlooks than negative on schools that require school uniforms. Havingschool uniforms be required for the students to wear gets rid of thebullies who pick on other students based on what they are wearing.
in that casehaving school uniform is a good idea. By making the students wear uniformyou’re controlling their behavior in a good way. The result from controllingtheir behavior they gets good grades. Also the uniforms help them to be readyand professional for their future. In additional, uniforms makes everyone looksdifferent.
