Issues Related against School Uniforms
I am a student that has attended 3 schools and has never worn a uniform in my life. Although, I have never experienced any issues with school uniform, I have noticed a few issues that can be prevented from the use of a uniform. Uniforms, not only had they been proven to be helpful at school, but they are also helpful at home.
Parents spent couple hundred dollars per year on clothing just to make their son(s) or daughter(s) meet the latest fashion. An average shop favoured by many teenagers, such as International, sells a piece of clothing for around $40 each! Parents can really find this money useful while paying bills. Uniforms are cheap, after my brother when my RH King, my parents had a lot of excess money to spend on me! A typical gang fad is to have a gang name, gang color, and other characteristics, that make them diverse.
There is a possibility of violence due to an article of clothing. If a student is dressed up similar to a member of a gang, another student who is not in favour of that gang might plan an attack towards that person. In this case uniforms can protect the safety of another. I believe if you compare a uniform school with a non-uniform school, you’ll see that violence is much popular in the non-uniform school. As stated above clothing can be quite expensive, how would one feel if their garment has been misplaced or stolen?
... In today's society, students are fighting each other in schools, because of other students that wear rival gangs colors and clothing. Uniforms eliminate gang clothing like baggy pants, ... shoe (although penny loafers were recommended) or sweater. The last issue that critics address is the unnecessary burden that may be ...
A lot of students love to brag about their shoes, especially basketball shoes, when they first buy it. Basketball shoes are worth $120 on average, and not everybody in your school is positive. Envision you replacing your new shoe, with your old one for gym class. You return to the change room, and it has disappeared. That shoe had cost you a lot of bills, and now it’s gone! This would have never happened if your school requires a uniform. Instead of bring your fancy shoe you would have brought your leather shoes, that matches your uniform. Uniform decreases the amount of theft on school property. Uniforms make it harder for strangers to sneak in the school, because for sure they’ll be the center of everyone’s attention.
Every parent would like their children to be as safe as possible during school, with uniforms their children will be safe and secure at school. They wouldn’t have to worry about a criminal kidnapping their child on school property. Uniforms can guarantee that your child is as secure as possible. Uniforms can also decrease the amount of bulling happening in the school. Many kids get bullied because they are poor.
Bulling happens for various reasons. Students that are poor or look poor because of their clothing are a great target for bullies. Fortunately if you attend a uniform school, no one would ever know, you’re someone who wears Rocawear, or if your someone who wears second-hand cloths. Uniforms help minimize school bulling. Overall, in my opinion the advantages of uniforms are by-far ahead of the disadvantages of uniforms; therefore I believe every TDSB school should use uniforms, or at least have a dress code.
