POLL: Should Public Schools Require A Uniform?
This question always sparks a fire. But I think it's something worth taking into consideration. Schools across the country require their students to wear a uniform or follow a strict 'dress code'. But should they? Look, I'll be upfront and honest with my opinion. YES.
Do I think having a dress code would solve issues like bullying? No. But, I do think requiring a uniform, or dress code, does make sense for other reasons:
- It prepares you for the workforce where a dress code is required.
- In most cases, a dress code is more affordable.
- Teaches kids to take pride in their appearance...face it, not all kids do.
There is a difference between a dress code & a uniform. I am more pro dress code and less on the uniform. A dress code allows you to have some say in what you wear, while a uniform dictates what you will wear.
What's your opinion?
