School Uniform in Public School
By Jenna DiGiandomenico/student life editor
Kids here at Corner Canyon have the ability to wear whatever they want within the dress code. However could wearing a school uniform help solve major problems our school has. According to Torontosun.com “uniforms are social and economic equalizers.” This shows that it can help prevent kids from bullying each other over what they wear.” If one child was more wealthy they cannot show off their money through the clothes they wear. While a less fortunate kid who would wear the same thing everyday due to their financial situation.
As stated in www.scituation.net. “ At schools without uniforms, many people feel judged based on what they wear. Some are embarrassed because they can’t afford to get the most expensive clothes. Peer pressure to have the newest jacket or coolest top disappears with the presence of uniforms.” If everyone had the same clothes, there would no need to feel embarrassed or ashamed of what you're wearing.
School uniforms can also help the students focus more. Uniforms are plain and simple, therefore don't draw unnecessary attention to them versus a sequin top that sparkles every time it hits the sunlight. Seven out of twelve students at Corner Canyon High School said they would want to wear a school uniform. Ninth grader Christian Wood said, “school uniforms would also help with stress and help you focus more because I wouldn't have to worry about picking out different outfits out every day but instead focus more on school work.”
However sophomore, Kenli Coon, said “not having uniforms helps express how we want to look and feel. If we have a school uniform people could not feel good and confident in what they're wearing.” There are many pros and cons to wearing a uniform. Hence, should Corner Canyon High School have school uniforms instead of free choice?
