Against school unis

I am against the fact of public schools enforcing the rules of school uniforms. There are two reasons why I am against this rule.

First off, school uniforms can have an effect on students’ self- image, which can take their focus off of class, and more of their image.

Second of all, school uniforms will emphasize the socioeconomic divisions they are supposed to eliminate.

School uniforms can have an effect on students’ self-image.

Most students will usually tend to compare other students based on their clothing. Robyn Silverman, a child and teen development specialist, told NBC news that he hears from many students that they allow for a lot of comparison, so if you have a specific body-type, women often feel they do not look their best. School uniforms can take students off task with their classes, and focus on their clothing.

School uniforms will emphasize the socioeconomic divisions that they are supposed to eliminate.

Uniforms cannot conceal the differences between the “haves” and the “have-nots.” “More affluent families buy more uniforms per child. The less affluent… It’s more likely to be torn and faded. It only takes two months for socioeconomic differences to show up again.” So stated D. L. Brunsuma, PhD.

Socioeconomic divisions are only emphasized with school uniforms then removed.

Schools should not be enforcing the rules of school uniforms.

All they are doing is affecting students’ self-image and emphasizing divisions. But what they really are doing is denying the First Amendment, with the Freedom of Expression.

School uniforms are removing the many different ways that students can express themselves, be from pins to hats, or bracelets to hoodies. School uniforms are revoking these expressions, which is why I am against the enforcements of school uniforms.
