Dress Codes Needed!

Why Would we Need Dress Codes?

I believe schools need and will be grateful to have a dress code/uniforms. Dress codes/uniforms is more than wearing a certain clothing, it is there to enhance your learning environment, and teachers will actually be getting the information to the students because they won't be worrying about how they look and will concentrate more in class. Dress codes/uniforms also dramatically change student's behaviors and help them concentrate on academics, and also make the school a better place it wants to be!

More Than Clothes?

Dress codes/uniforms have been found to do amazing things like decrease violence and theft of expensive items, social status since everyone is wearing the same thing; making everyone feel like everyone is on a equal level,fear of gangs, vandalism, and dropouts. Some dress code rules at Four Points Middle School is no clothing that supports violence, drugs, drinking alcohol, and/or anything inappropriate. A high school that just started uniforms drop out rates went from 11.2% to 2.7%. It also helps students concentrate more on academics. Dress codes/uniforms make it easier for school ambassadors to identify non-students, trespassers, and visitors. Students will most likely work together easier because everyone, even the ones who can’t afford fancy clothing, can feel like they are all equal. Dress codes/uniforms also keep you and the school safe from dangerous things students might be sneak into the building. Also students will know what to wear and no longer stress out on what to wear!

Though some people debate about the idea of dress code/uniforms, they should re-think it.Though students say uniforms are not in style, but what they don't know is that dress codes isn't really made for style, and they are made to look nice, they are made to help enhance your learning environment, and dress codes/uniforms can change the school drastically! Some people say they are uncomfortable, but some schools give more than one choice of style, and the uniforms shouldn't be uncomfortable in the first place. Even though students say they can’t express themselves through clothes, they can express themselves through other things like hobbies, because the school has a lot of programs, and unlike clothes it doesn't cost money to show your talent!
