In 1996 President Bill Clinton promotes a dress code following his demand for school uniforms. This is when school uniforms became the "hype" of the nation. That is also when many people came to the conclusion in their own minds that school uniforms should come to affect, which is because it SHOULD take affect!In 1999 two armed students killed 13 people within class coarse. Those two boys were able to bring in weapons because they had long, baggy clothes on which hid the weapons. This made the nation thinks highly of protecting schools and school uniforms/dress codes. (Cruz 14) This is also an example of why school uniforms should take affect.
Then in 2001 the case of Teshana Byers et al v. City of Waterbury et al. took place. This was about a girl (Teshana Byers) who wore baggy clothes to school. The school accused her of hiding drugs and weapons in her baggy clothes.
(School Uniforms) This could have been a big potential harm to her school. But the City of Waterbury ended up winning. Once again this is an example of why school uniforms should take affect in order to make schools safer. (Brunsma 25)Although many school districts think that uniforms and dress codes should apply, most students disagree. "Students across the nation DO NOT like school uniforms." (Cruz 22) But the students do not understand that school uniforms are for their own safety. Most students also do not know the potential harm regular clothes could bring to school. And almost every student believes that school uniforms violate the freedom of expression, but it doesn't because if those students want to enroll at that school they have to listen to the rules. (School)This "situation" is not just happening in America, but it is also happening around the world,
