School Uniform

SCHOOL UNIFORM

 

Claire Howlette, a renowned English teacher, agrees: “Uniforms give students a sense of belonging to a particular school and create an identity for the school in the community.”

 

A school uniform teaches students to dress smartly and take pride in their appearance. Howlette says: “Uniforms help students to prepare for when they leave school and may have to dress smartly or wear a uniform.”

 

Some people believe that a school uniform can improve learning by reducing distraction, sharpening focus on schoolwork and making the classroom a more serious environment, allowing students to perform better academically.

 

Perhaps most importantly, a uniform means students don’t have to worry about peer pressure when it comes to their clothes. When everyone is dressed the same, worrying about what you look like isn’t so important. There is no competition about being dressed in the latest trend, which would put a great deal of financial pressure on students and parents. Potential bullies have one less target for their insults; it’s hard to make fun of what someone is wearing when you’re dressed exactly the same.

 

In countries like America, where a majority of schools do not have a uniform, roughly 1,60,000 children miss school every day due to fear of attack or intimidation by other students. This might not be directly linked to what they’re wearing, but having a uniform can be a safety net for many students who might otherwise suffer from bullying. A strict uniform gives the impression that rules are strict too, perhaps helping maintain a sense of order at school.

 

In a country like India where the economic divide is much larger than that in western countries, school uniforms are considered to be essential. Many academics argue that the benefits of school uniforms far outweigh the cons and some of the main uses of schools uniforms in India are listed below:

 

Uniformity

 

The main argument for schools uniforms is the concept of uniformity. As previously mentioned the economic divide in India is vast and in most schools people from different walks of life can be seen. School uniforms are the medium through which children are united and a sense of oneness is achieved. Students are not conscious about what others are wearing, and minority students who might not be able to afford expensive clothes are not neglected. Such a situation is prevalent in many western schools and eliminating this aspect is one of the main benefits of having a standardized uniform. Students, especially teenagers, tend to judge a person by the brand of clothes they are wearing and school uniforms in India serve to remove this type of mind-set.

 

Uniforms also install a sense of school spirit and lack of discrimination leads to solidarity and camaraderie between people from different religions, caste, culture and creed. This is an important function that is served by schools uniforms.

 

Reduces Tardiness

 

As most schools require students to wear school uniforms in India, students do not have to spend a lot of time in front of a mirror trying to decide what to wear. Students can arrive on time to school and precious minutes in the morning are saved. Believe it or not, many students skip breakfast if they are late and dressing up is one of the primary reasons for being late!

 

School uniforms in India are essential, especially in the smaller cities and towns of the country. They fulfill many important functions and they allow parents to get some breathing space. School uniforms in India promote a sense of togetherness, which is essential to promote racial harmony and communal harmony in the society.
