Students have enough stress in their lives; why add more?
With so much stress about getting good grades and getting everything done on time, we shouldn’t have to deal with the stress of uniforms.
While wearing uniforms, confidence is sometimes a hard thing to accomplish, but this isn’t the only distraction of wearing a uniform.
Uniforms can be quite distracting during the day because of all the restrictions.
How is telling us exactly what to wear teaching us responsibility.
We should be able to know how we can and cannot dress without having the privilege completely taken away.Having guidelines for how we dress will also help teach us to follow simple directions.With different rules in place we can reclaim our individuality.Frank Quatrone, superintendent in the Lodi district of New Jersey, stated that "When you have students dressed alike, you make them safer.If someone were to come into a building, the intruder could easily be recognized." A bulletin published by the National Association of Secondary School Principals stated that "When all students are wearing the same outfit, they are less concerned about how they look and how they fit in with their peers; thus, they can concentrate on their schoolwork." Former US Secretary of State and presidential candidate Hillary Clinton, advocated school uniforms as a way to help students focus on learning: "Take that [clothing choices] off the table and put the focus on school, not on what you're wearing." When all students are dressed alike, competition between students over clothing choices and the teasing of those who are dressed in less expensive or less fashionable outfits can be eliminated.Having a uniform takes that away from us, and this may lead students to try to find other ways to be different.They might begin to act out so they stick out from the crowd.I believe that students should not have to wear uniforms.Traditionally favored by private and parochial institutions, school uniforms are being adopted by US public schools in increasing numbers.After enough uniform violations there will of course be consequences such as a detention.I personally am not always thinking about what I should be, but instead checking my uniform over and over to make sure not to get in trouble.
