Need an research paper on the necessity of school uniforms. Needs to be 6 pages. Please no plagiarism. When one thinks of the word, schoolboy, the picture that comes to mind is obviously that of a boy in a school uniform. Britain was the first country to enforce this system in schools. This eventually spread to all of its colonies even though the attire may not have been suitable for tropical climates. In most of these colonies, the system is still in place, and there is no conflict whatsoever to the question of whether a student should wear uniforms to school. Uniforms are considered necessary. The disagreement that arose in the US after Clinton’s statement “If it means that teenagers will stop killing each other over designer jackets, then our public schools should be able to require their students to require school uniforms” (Clinton will advise schools on uniforms) brought this seemingly unimportant topic to the forefront.
Arguments for and against uniforms were heard across the country. One argument was that ‘uniforms helped students perform better in a test.’ One of the advantages of having a uniform is that students do not have to spend time deciding what to wear to school. Parents do not have to argue about the appropriateness of a piece of clothing. They also don’t have to worry about competing with the neighbors. Teachers also do not have to waste their time policing the outfits worn by students. They can concentrate on teaching. Students do not have to try to ‘fit in.’ They also tend to differentiate between playtime and work. Even though it has not been statistically proven that students who wear uniforms perform better, it is an obvious fact that they do not have to spend time deciding what to wear. They do not have distractions regarding clothing in school because when every student is wearing the same type of clothing, there is not much to compare. However, this argument is made with the assumption that the time saved by the students is used for studying and nothing else.
