School Dress Code
It is up for debate; should children wear a school uniform? School dress codes run the gamut of relaxed (banning profane words) to uber strict, like defining the proper length of a skirt or implementing a school uniform. In the US, parents whose children are required to wear school uniforms typically spend $249 for uniforms. However, in a poll done by the Department of Education, approximately 1 in 3 parents believe that uniforms limit a student’s self-expression. However, many people think that a uniform decreases bullying. Approximately 160,000 students in the US miss school due to bullying and proponents of school uniforms think that equalizing clothing could be a step to decrease such behaviour.
