The topic I have chosen for my issue paper in the uniform policy in schools. I chose this because I think it will be interesting to research both sides of the subject. The two opposing sides will be people (or educators) that encourage the uniform policy upon students and people that are against it. The people that want to push the uniform policy on students will be arguing the positive impact that it will have among students. This will include making all students feel equal and reducing distractions throughout the day. If each student feels equal to all the others, they might feel less pressure on the way they look and focus more on their education. It might also encourage a better learning environment, which might raise the grades. Uniform policies set a higher standard for students because they are expected to perform as well as they dress. Uniform policies may also help low-income families send their children to a better school so they will have a better chance at getting into college. The main argument for the side approving school uniform policy will be that students will have a better learning environment and have fewer distractions. People that are against the uniform policy may argue that it would take away from student’s individuality and creativity. Some students take pride in their clothes because what they wear defines them in a way. They might also argue that students will not want to get an education at a school that enforces a dress code because it takes away from their uniqueness and transfer to a nearby school. Individuality is a big thing in school-aged kids. Also, the people against this might argue how there is no such thing as a dress code in college, so why make kids have one now? The viewpoint opposing the uniform policy overall will talk a lot about student’s individuality and how it plays a part in the school environment. My topic primarily impacts students in public or private schools today. This is becoming a bigger topic every year and I think it will be interesting to research both sides of the issue.
