The reading discuss that educators,students and professionals envision school uniforms as an excellent mean of reducing stress and difficulty of students providing three reasons of support. However, the professor says that the reasons in the article do not provide the kind of support, opposing each of the author’s reasons.
Firstly, the reading contends that the family of students will benefit by saving on the cost of clothing. On the contrary, the lecturer refutes this point by saying that families still have to spend money in buying the uniforms and clothing. The uniforms are not free, parents have to buy them in specialties stores, most of them are expensive. Additionally, students love to wear trendy clothing during the weekends. In this case parents have to spend more money too.
Second, the article avers that the second major advantage of uniforms lies in elimination on unnecessary distractions. However, the professor says that students use clothing to emphasize their attractive features. Uniforms do not emphasize students attractive features at all. That could cause more distractions among the students that looks less attractive than the others.
Finally, the author says that a mandatory policy to wear uniform will develop a sense of community within the school. On the contrary the professor refutes this point by saying that the is not way to create a sense community with uniforms. Students put clothing on to express themselves, if they have to wear uniforms schools are reducing their sense of creativity and independence .Uniforms do not represent this and for that alone they should be avoided.
