The introduction of school uniforms in the public school system would make a positive change for the students and the entire school. A common argument today is whether uniforms should be introduced to the school system. I agree for many different reasons. The main reasons for having uniforms are; it would prevent violence,parents will save money, and students will be less distracted. Even though some students see it as their self-expression will be taken away from them. Their are different type of ways to express yourself. First, by enforcing school uniforms statistics have shown that the crime rate in school has decreased because students are not able to wear their gang colors which can start fights. Additionally, students are not able to be bullied for how they dress. Some students are not able to have the latest designer clothes as other are able to do so. In a lot of schools, in order to be considered popular, it is important to wear the latest clothing styles. If uniforms were worn in schools, students wouldn’t have to worry about the newest fashion. Importantly, for parents it will be a big financial relief to have uniforms. Every year there are thousands of dollars spent on keeping your child in the latest fashion for school. If schools require uniforms, the cost will be cut more than half; you will be spending approximately $250 yearly on uniforms. Parents will just need to spend a good amount at the beginning of the year.
Students won’t have to worry about who looks better than who, because at the end of the day everyone is wearing the same thing. Even though parents still need to buy clothes for students to wear after school and on weekends. They will not have to spend as much, and the clothes will last longer. Students who wear uniforms are more likely to focus on school work than the latest fashion. It also cuts down on distractions caused by students who wear inappropriate clothing to school. In class students become distracted because they are so busy looking at females showing their skin, as male students wearing shirts with writing. Statistic have shown that a school with uniforms students grades have stayed at average which is a C. School administrator could take the time they are using to make sure students are following the dress code to something more productive.
All schools,in each state should require school uniforms. Parents should support the idea of school uniforms even though students maybe against it. Students are still able to express themselves through their hair style or different types of blouse or shirts with their uniforms they still have a chance to be different. Enforcing school uniforms there is a decrease in violence and parents will have a financial relief. Students will be more concentrated on there grades rather than fashion. Although students may be upset at the fact they have to wear uniforms they’ll discover that it is the best for them. Hopefully uniforms will be enforced so that there can be a positive turn around for the problems that are within schools today.
