He also shares that he tries to get out and be with the students each day likes to go look around at lunch and noon rec. He also spends part of his day dealing with paperwork. He says he has a hidden talent for remembering useless information when it’s not needed.

Should Schools Make Kids Wear Uniforms? by Cameron A.

Schools should not have uniforms, Students should be able to feel like they have rights and they might feel uncomfortable. When people wear uniforms they have a possibility of getting teased on how they look, Kids should be able to wear what they want to school. When kids wear their own clothes it let’s them express themselves. If kids wear uniforms it was slightly lead to being uncomfortable in class. ProCon.org states that “wearing school uniforms increased the schools violent attacks by 14 per year.” According to ProCon.org “middle school fights doubled within one year of introducing school uniforms.” ProCon.org also states that “school uniforms do not improve attendance, academic preparedness, and exam results.”
