Pros and cons of school uniform

Extracts from this document...


´╗┐Pros of school uniform Cons of school uniform 1. Kids come to school looking really good in their uniforms and it's always good to know that you're not the only one wearing a school uniform. Bullies are identified much quicker because they're not wearing a different outfit every day. 2. You won't be getting judged on what you are wearing. 3. Quite easier to dress 4. Wearing the same uniforms encourages students to behave friendly, helps to develop good social skills and a sense of belonging to a special community of the school. Also, when students wear the same uniforms, they feel more connected with each other and learn to pay more attention to the person?s identity, but not to the person?s clothing. 5. If students wear uniforms with their name tag and school emblem, they feel that they represent their school and are expected to behave more considerately. 6. It allows students to focus on their lessons, physical or other activities instead of spending time for choosing their clothing every day. ...read more.


5. It won't save money either. That is rubbish. If your kid leaves the house, as kids are ought to do, they will still need something to wear. Kids these days buy clothing still & don't wear them which explains why they have a large wardrobe with unworn clothes in it. 6. Are an unfair additional expense for parents who pay taxes for a free public education 7. I do believe that we are at school to learn, but we're also there to find out who we are and what we stand for = IDENTITY. 8. School Pride: It shouldn't matter what you wear. Pride comes from spirit/personality. (St. Xaviers) 9. Uniforms as ID tags... There are things called phones/pagers/internet/COMMUNICATING WITH OTHER PEOPLE TO ACCESS THESE RESOURCES. Hence students are vulnerable. 10. Those with long skirts are bullyed still. 11. Fascism, dictatorial movement, agaist freedom 12. if wearing a uniform is forced upon the students they turn rebellious and try to alter the uniform the way they like by tightening or shortening it according to their desires. ...read more.


4. At times when syllabus is more and time is less, the pressure is created and this is a fact that true potential of human beings explodes only when pressure is put on them etc. 1. Exams must not be avoided. But the pattern must be changed. 2. If we don't have proper way to know about ourselves, and our strengths and abilities we can't lead in this society. Examinations are the things to see ourselves. If we don't have exams, we don't and won't learn and at least we don't try how to grow up our personality. 1. It's so sad that a student who know's traffic rules but don't know how to cross the road. 2. Partially killed education, nowadays student are just running behind marks and nobody bothers about learning the basic concept, in this cut throat competition scoring highest marks became more imp than gaining knowledge. 3. Everyone has an individual talent but they cannot implement it. Only mug up and writing do not help them to shine. Some do have talent in other activities. 4. Students aren't memorizing machines. They are curious people to quench the thirst of knowledge. ...read more.
