Composition 101 16 September 2012 Should Students Have to Wear Uniforms We are living in the 21st century which technology and fashion are designed for the young people, especially students. They want to use and wear something new, modern and style. Most of the students need to wear whatever they want to school to show other people. The school should have a policy for students to wear a uniform. School is an education center; it is not a fashion show place. All students should wear uniform at school.
When students wear uniform the school develops a disciplined climate, the students feel equal in spite of the fact that some people say that student should not wear uniforms because lose important freedoms. Uniform helps students concentrate on studying instead of clothes. Most of the students naturally think about fashion. Some parents spoil their kids about clothes. They buy the expensive clothes or the electronic devices to encourage their kids to study hard. When they have the value clothes, they will not chat with friends about study.
They are proud of themselves to have the expensive clothes on them. On the other hand, if they wear uniform at school, they do not have something to say about fashion. They will concentrate about study because everybody wears the same clothes and the same brand name. For example, if one of their friend have North Face brand, their feeling will think about it. How can I get that or I have to have it. In their age, students need to be attractively from the other people.
For this reason, uniform keeps students feel equal of their family situation. When students wear the same clothes; they feel in the same page. Clothes can express a lot about people and identify their situation. In addition, they do not have any space for their brain to think about who is poor or rich because everyone wear the same cloth and help to close the gap between students those who is poor and those who is rich. Furthermore, they cannot judge other students because of the cloth.
For instance, at my country Cambodia, all students wear uniform with white shirt and black pant for male and white shirt with black skirt under the knee for female. Students feel like almost the same that we are in the same financial situation. No one look down each other or separate the class room for poor or wealth students. Parents can save some money on their kids’ clothes because uniforms are not expensive to buy. Opponents say that students should not wear uniforms because of lose important freedoms.
In their age, students need to express their opinion or what they want to do. We live in the freedom country, and people can do whatever they require. We are parents should encourage their children to develop their brain. We should not ban them in any reasons to express their opinion. For example, if they want to decorate their body with clothes or jewelry, we should bring to them. If we do not let them wear what they want, they will feel bad about themselves that even the favorite clothes cannot wear what they can do in the future?
It is impact their mind that can slow down their thinking and maybe suspicion about their parents loving. They should do the way they are. Parents should not do something opposite from Mother Nature that provide to their kids. I believe that they are not losing the important freedoms. They have opportunity to show their opinion like voting or having a request when they have meeting. If you cannot wear clothes instead of uniform at school, it does not mean you lose freedoms. It helps you to look organize and make you become a good student that respect the rule and regulation.
Furthermore, uniforms assist you to be preparing for the future when you are looking for a job. If you go to interview for a job, the interviewer will look at you how organize you are. It is a part of your successful life. In conclusion, students should wear uniform at school to keep student feel equal and make school develops discipline. I suggest that the government should pass a law that force all students should wear uniform at private schools and public schools. It is useful for students to move forward and avoid them from the wrong way.
