Task 2: Indenpendent Writing

The question:

Many schools require students to wear uniforms. Do you think this is a good idea? Why or why not? Use specific reasons and examples to support your opinion.

My Answer:

I would say, uniform for school students is a good idea. In this term is about high school students and lower. Here are two of my reasons:

It could prevent exclusivity in schools. If the school doesn't rules unform for students, the students will wear any kind of wardrobe they have, form here the problems could begin. Rich students obviously can afford high branded wardrobe and clothes, on the other side, poorer students are not. It can cause economical gap environment in the school then not impossible it will exclusivity groups of students, the rich and the poor. Of course it will not good for students social development. In my experience, when I was in school, I cried to my mom to buy me a pair of fancy shoes that my friends wore. My mom couldn't afford it, and made me feel so inferior in school.

Next one is about teaching discipline. Uninform is not only about the looks, but also the way how this uniform being wear. The school must be rules it, so the student have to the option weather obey or disobey it. This kind of rules push students to not to listen to their ego, which is not following ego is a start for building wisdom.

So in conclusion, I believe uniform rules in the school will give students good impact. It will good for their learning development by provide good social environment with inclusivity. Moreover it will train the students to maintain their mental development, which is good for their future in the real world.
