School uniform: Do school uniforms satisfy religious and cultural needs?

  • Yes they do

    Its unfair that you can't wear what you wanna wear and show your stile and show how you feel and what you wanna do you have to be free because you have the right to be who you wanna be and be free live how yu wanna live not how other people want you to live

  • They do and they dont

    The First Amendment allows for mandatory uniform policies or dress codes in the public schools. However, it also generally permits exemptions from such policies or codes for students to wear religious clothes, head coverings, symbols or other attire. Under many circumstances policies or codes that prohibit students from wearing religious clothes or other attired are unconstitutional or unlawful. People that are involved are the students and the teachers and the issue presented in this bill is that the bill says that religious students would affected them if they don’t wear the uniforms. This bill is important because it make
    s the students at the school wear uniforms instead of wherein inappropriate Clothes and my position on the bill is against school uniforms and for school uniforms.

  • Yes, to an extent.

    School uniforms help those who are poor and do not have proper clothing for schools, and also makes it easy to have every student feel they are the same no matter their belief, or cultural. However, it is still important to allow teens and children to express themselves and be creative.

  • Yes, School uniforms satisfy religious and cultural needs.

    I believe that school uniforms satisfy religious and cultural needs. Some religious schools, such as Catholic schools, want students to wear uniforms so there is no distractions from clothing, such as girls wearing too tight shirts or guys wearing jeans that fall down below their hips. Cultural needs are met because uniforms get rid of the "have" and "have not" feeling among students--some students have designer clothes, while others do not.

  • It is plain clothing

    Making everyone wear the same thing does not leave room for any individuality nor independency. As the uniform policys are vicious, They make every type of clothing that isn't khaki, Out to be a villian. Hijab's or any type of garb/head-wear is frowned upon. But what should be frowned upon is the ignorance this policy engraves. No wonder many kids don't know or understand the culture of others around them. They're not able to witness and normalize different cultural's clothing and fashion, Which should be very much around them in a education setting. Maybe letting them get used to this will not be "distracting".

  • Is yu boy

    They are made to wear certain clothing and religious people don't like to wear them but they are made to wear it. They get into trouble for wearing something other than what they are suppose to. Some people find that wearing school uniforms go against what they believe in so then they feel like they are going against it.

  • Kids should be able to express their beliefs

    Because everyone has their own religions and their beliefs kids should be able to express them because that’s what their religion wants them to do and there’s nothing wrong nothing showing who you are and what you believe because you can’t hide who you are so I think that kids should be able express their religious beliefs

  • No not at all.

    People who wear religious clothing have should have the right to wear religious clothing, Because if the kids do not practice their religion they could end up abandoning their religion and lose hope on if there even is a god. So school uniforms could cost the children's belief in there religion.

  • School uniforms do not support religion

    What if a child wants/needs to wear a head covering or a gown, Or a necklace supporting what they believe in? Why would it be right to take away a child's right to wear what they desire, And how is it right to place children in detention or suspend them for something hundreds of other people believe in?

  • Am Muslim yep

    With once being enrolled in a uniform-enforcing school, I saw many Muslim girls head coverings get punished such as detention, And such, And be placed in an isolated classroom so they would be tempted to take off their head coverings. . . Not cool I, Being a Christian dude don't care much, But would not hesitate to report this school and sue them. I have friends that are affected by this.

  • I object, your honor!!

    With once being enrolled in a uniform-enforcing school, I saw many Muslim girls head coverings get punished such as detention, and such, and be placed in an isolated classroom so they would be tempted to take off their head coverings... Not cool I, being a christian dude dont care much, but would not hesitate to report this school and sue them. I have friends that are affected by this.

  • School doesn't support religious needs

    People might need to wear a bracelet but some schools ban jewellery
    This in very racist but schools teach student not to be racist and there are doing this themselves.My friend was a Muslim and she needed to wear a hyjab but she was told not to wear a hyjab because it is not part of the uniform

  • They don't satisfy religious people

    They are made to wear certain clothing and religious people don't like to wear them but they are made to wear it. They get into trouble for wearing something other than what they are suppose to. Some people find that wearing school uniforms go against what they believe in so then they feel like they are going against it.

  • Why should they

    Wearing school uniforms can be very distracting, during class. Students could be fixing, playing, e.C.T. With their uniforms. And the cost well they cost more then regular clothes would. So why would u want to buy your child something that she/he would be wearing, everyday of the week! It's outrages
