Public School System should be required to Wear School Uniforms
School uniforms are the specific design for clothing designated to be worn by the students when attending their academic classes at the schools. Different public schools in the United States and their respective different grades have different school uniforms. However, that is no issue, what is important is that schools should be schools and rather not fashion shows. Since all students go and should go to school with one primary aim, gaining an education, creating uniformity amongst all students is also paramount (Brunsma 216). I, therefore, strongly support that the U.S. public school system should be required to wear school uniforms. The reason being, the wearing of school uniforms serve to create and provide several positive benefits to both the schools and students as will be explained in details below.
First, the wearing of school uniforms in the public school systems promotes the identity with both the school and class. The identity with the school and class is a significant situation that creates an emphasis on the common educational purpose. The school uniforms put everyone on the schools, the students, to be in the same boat so that they can be more comfortable and likely to help one another succeed (Federle 1000).
Second, the school uniforms are the best solution to bullying. Students who cannot afford designer or expensive clothing are always an easy target to bullying. Therefore, it is possible for bullying to be controlled to be controlled to a considerable level though making all the students to be in same clothing through the implementation of the school uniform policy (Brunsma and Kern 21).
Third, the school uniforms improve professionalism and enhance the image of the students. Kids in uniform often grow to be professionals. Professionalism is very important as the child grows up and more specifically when he or she enters the corporate setup. Also, it is the desire of all parents for their kids to be well-mannered, neat, and discipline. Studies have proved that the students who wear school uniform are frequently well perceived by their teachers (Federle 1001).
It is no doubt that change is good only if it is for a purpose. The purpose of requiring the public school systems to wear school uniforms is to promote equality amongst all the students owing to the fact they come from varied backgrounds. Therefore, the school uniforms are the best for our new society and generation. The wearing of school uniforms serves to end several social evils by helping bridge the gap between the different social classes and make the students to focus on education and not clothing.
