School Uniform Policy in America high school

Here is a recently news: “Mesa shooting: suspect in custody, Mesa police source says”. As I know most of high school in America have no policy for uniform, it’s kind of freedoms. However, if someone outside of the school wants to do something bad for us, we even have no warning to realize that. However, if we have our uniform, that can make things simple because people who come from outside will be easy to distinguish.

“Should High Schools Have a High School Uniform Policy?” “Should High Schools Have a High School Policy?” The introduction of school uniforms in the public school system would make a positive change for the students and the entire school. A common argument today is whether uniforms should be introduced to the school system. I agree for many different reasons. The main reasons for having uniforms are; it would prevent violence, parents will save money, and students will be less distracted. Even though some students see it as their self-expression will be taken away from them. Having a school uniform policy is necessary in the public school system. There are a few issues that can be prevented by having a uniform policy not just at school, but also at home. They are essential for school students because it allows them all to look the same and they do not have to keep up with all the current fashion trends while in school. It is also an economic factor with saving parents money.

Firstly, violence. A high school uniform policy can solve many problems and also they can cause many others. The good part of the problem creating issue is that about 95% of the time it helps students get together and form a group. That group can grow in a more educational experiential course. First, I do agreed that high schools should have a high school uniform policy, because its can help prevent gangs from forming on campus. By wearing a school uniform all students will be extorted to wear a uniform and 9:10 chances the students will not come to school claiming some gang and wearing their color. It also encourages discipline in the child. By being extorted to wear the uniform the child will learn to obey and that lesson will stick with them for later future references. Also, there is the possibility of violence due to what a person wears. If a student comes to school in new sneakers or new sports jersey there is the chance he or she could get robbed of those items. Having a school uniform can decrease the amount of theft on school property. When every student is dressed the same there is no reason for anybody to steal another person’s clothes or shoes. If a person comes to school dressed in gang colors, it can cause a hostile environment. Another student who might be wearing rival gang colors might attack the one student. The attacks can lead to violence like stabbings and school shootings. A school uniform policy would make it a lot harder for strangers to sneak into a school, because they will stick out because of the way they are dressed.

Second, saving money. Parents will spend on average a few hundred dollars per year on clothing just to make their children happy and so they keep up with the latest fashion trends. A store like Gap and American eagle sells a piece of clothing for around $25 each. Parents can really find this money useful when it comes time to pay bills. Uniforms are cheap in the long run compared to having to buy five different outfits in the wintertime. Then another five outfits for the fall/spring time. That will total out to $500 a year on clothes for one child and that’s the minimal. If you had a school uniform you might only need three a week. An average school uniform costs around $36.95. If you buy three of them for the year it will only be $110.85. Parents would be saving $389.15 by having a school uniform. It helps students resist peer pressure to buy trendy clothes. There are some
