School Uniforms in public schools

Extracts from this document...


School Uniforms in Public Schools In the past few decades' schools have shifted their focus from education to fashion. Students are judged upon their shoes or jeans rather than their knowledge. Uniforms in the public education system is a great idea, not only is it cost effective, but also it gives the students a chance to concentrate on their studies and not have to worry about what to wear tomorrow. Plus the crime or violence rate drops in schools that have a uniform policy, and those that do not belong on campus are spotted quicker and easier.

If the children have to wear them, then so should the rest of the school. The problem with the current dress codes is that the principles are not doing their jobs by enforcing the rules. A quick cover up for school problems is to change. This is why I believe school uniform should be worn in school.

    Also he shows that although the British won battle after battle, their leaders seemed to lack the instinct to finish off the Americans when they had the upper hand. The fact that Howe could sit in Philadelphia and not attack Washington's tattered army only 20 miles away at Valley Forge in the winter of 1777-1778 seems almost miraculous.
