Does a school uniform affect school safety?
No it doesnt affect the school academic acheivments or the
attendance but it causes an increase in behavioral issues and loss
of time during classes because the children are uncomfortable
looking like each other instead of expressing themselves.
Conversely:While those who currently/previously have worn
uniforms tend to be vehemently against them, the truth is that they
help. In schools where uniforms are implemented, students tend to
be more successful because they come to school, dressed their best.
The tendency among students is that those who are dressed in
uniforms do perform better in school because they are not focused
on the latest trends or possibly their lack of the monetary needs
for these styles.As far as school safety, uniforms can prevent
students from wearing gang related clothing. In many high schools
the se of uniforms has significantly dropped gang related violence
on their campuses. Also, uniforms tend to create a unifying
denominator that allows for students to feel less threatened from
their peers which can also decrease school bullying.
