  1. No, George Washington High School should not require students to wear a school uniform. First, forcing students to wear a school uniform is a terrible idea to make. Second, students are not going to agree with a school uniform. The reason why students are not going to agree with school uniform is because they are not used to school uniform they are used to wearing what they like. Third, These are students that are in high school, so there is no reason to have a school uniform. That’s because people are not going to agree with buying items for a school uniform because they are used to buying normal clothes.

    • Iliana,i agree that students shouldn’t have a uniform in high school they are to old.

  2. No, students who go to GWHS shouldn’t have to wear uniforms to school. Students don’t want to dress like everybody else. Some students like to be different, so they don’t want to wear uniforms in high school. When they are in high school they don’t want to wear uniform. When you been in middle school wearing uniform , you don’t want to end your high school years wearing a uniform. Some people like to express their self dressing up so having a uniform mess everything up cause they can’t express their self. Some students think might think they in a private school or some because they have to wear uniform. Having a uniform can be hard on students because they have to go home every night and wash their uniform. If they have to wear a uniform, it’ll be hard for students to find the uniforms they need because a lot of students gone look for the same thing and stores can run out of the uniforms that the students need to start school.

    • Shawneya, I agree that George Washington High should not have a school uniform because it’s a bad idea. Another reason I believe this is because no one is going to follow school uniform, because students are used to wearing normal clothes.

    • Shawneya, I agree that GWHS should not have a school uniform because there is no reason to. I also think that students will dislike school more than they do now. Students like wearing different clothes to school.

  3. No, GWHS should not require students to wear a school uniform. First, school uniforms are a bad idea because students who were in middle school had a uniform, and they do not want to wear one in high school. When they come to high school, they expect to have a dress code that allows them to wear anything they want that is school appropriate. Second, some parents cannot afford to buy uniforms. Parents had to buy uniforms in middle school and might not have the money to buy uniforms for their children in high school. Finally, when a student comes to high school, it is a state of becoming a mature adult. If GWHS gives students a uniform, then it will make them feel like they are in middle school all over again.

    • Juliana, I agree with you abut not have a school uniform. Another reason is why would someone buy a uniform that they only going to wear at school and maybe then the school might get a new dress code and have wasted their money. People already can’t afford the clothes they have already and parents break they back to get what they need for their children so they not going to buy something that only going to be wore once.

    • Juliana, I totally agree with you about some parents not having the money to buy their children uniforms because some parents are on a fixed income. Another reason I believe this is because many parents have multiple children. They need to buy clothes for the rest of their children. Nowadays, prices of clothes have increased.

  4. No,GWHS should not require students to wear a school uniform. In middle school,students are required to have a dress code,but a school uniform is more strict and and professional. GWHS should not have a school uniform because some students can’t afford to buy a whole new outfit that they only are going to wear at school. Also, if students are uncomfortable, it’s less likely that they will concentrate on their work than how they are dressed. Giving high school, a school uniform will make them feel like they are middle schools and being in high school is about maturity, responsibility.

    • Toonami, I agree with you about not having students wearing a school uniform. Having a school uniform will make us feel like we are in middle school and being in high school is suppose to make us feel like we are responsibility. Another reason I believe this is a good idea of not having a student uniform is because it shows that we are mature enough to wear what is appropriate for school.

    • Toonami, I totally agree with you about students that can’t afford the uniforms. Another reason I believe this is because I feel like when parents buy clothes for school they can’t see their child in what they where and that hurts me because parents have bills to pay and they have to waste their money on some uniforms that we do not deserve.

    • Toonami, I Totally Agree With You. Some People Might Not Have Enough Money To Be Buying New Uniform’s All The Time. They Could Already Be Nervous About How They Dress And Cover Up All The Time, And Wearing Uniforms Could Stress Them Out Because They Are Already Nervous About It. They May Not Come To School, Get In Trouble For Not Following School Uniform, Etc. They Are Just Getting Out Of Middle School With Uniform So Now They Are In High School And Want To Show Their Unique Expressions. Uniforms Can Cause So Much Stress On People And That One Person That Is Already Stressing About How They Dress.

  5. No, GWHS should not require students to wear a student uniform. Students want their independence, and making them wear uniforms will deprive them of independence because they all dress alike. Students these days don’t like dressing up in uniforms or even in suits or dress shirts. People will not want to go to school if there is a uniform they have to wear or use for learning.

    • Billy, i agree with you about not wearing a school uniform. Another reason i believe this is that it will make people feel like there in middle school.

  6. No GWHS should not be required to wear a school uniform. Most kids in highschool just got out of middle school with a very strict uniform and couldn’t wait to get to highschool to wear what they wanted. They can’t express their unique way in dressing with a uniform, everybody dosen’t dress the same they have their own style. They need the chance to show off their dressing to other people. A’lot of people can be inspired by them or might just want to use their style and make it in their own way. They understand they have a little bit of dress code in highschool so they won’t take it over board with the dressing.

    • Tyanna, I agree that GWHS shouldn’t have a dress code. Another reason I believe this is because with a uniform students will feel constricted or tied down when they should dress freely.

  7. No GWHS should not require students to wear a school uniform. First, people will feel like they’re middle school. Second, people would not have money to buy clothes they’re going to wear every day during the school year. Third, people are not going to wear a school uniform every day during the school year. These are the reasons why GWHS should not require students to wear school uniforms.

  8. No,GWHS should not require a dress code, because we wouldn’t get to wear whatever we want. If we was to have a dress code we would have to wear specific clothes and we wouldn’t be able to express ourselves. Some people may have different styles and would want to dress a little differently. Most people wouldn’t approve of a dress code, because they wouldn’t like to wear the same thing everyday. A dress code wouldn’t be a good thing for everyone they would feel limited to what they can wear most of the time.

  9. No, GWHS should not require students to wear a school uniform. First, school uniforms are a bad idea because the students are in high school and students should know how to dress respectfully. Second, the students would not want to wear the same uniform every day and feel uncomfortable. Third, clothing is how many students express themselves. Many students only know that way to express themselves. These are three reasons why GWHS should not require students to wear uniforms.

    • Kendall, I totally agree with you about not agreeing with wearing a uniform at George Washington High School. I agree because its true that people express their selves by their style, clothing, and fashion. Another reason is because it would be boring to wear the same clothing everyday.

  10. No, GWHS should not require students to wear a school uniform. Students should be able to express their personality and what they like in what they wear. Students being able to wear what they want also can create friendship because it shows students what they have in common. People in general feel better when they have the free choice to wear what they want. It is unnecessary for students to have a uniform to wear when students want to express their personality and values that show how a person perceives the world.

  11. No, George Washington High School should not require students to wear a uniform. First, a uniform is too strict. Second, many students would not follow the uniform guidelines. Third, some students do not have the finances to afford a uniform. There’s a big probability that those students would get bullied for not having the money for a uniform. That would be a bigger problem. There would more likely be more fights because of people’s differences. GWHS should not require a uniform. It would create a problem.

    • I agree with, Michelle on her ideas and reasons why we shouldn’t have school uniforms and some students might not have the funds to afford a uniform, most students wouldn’t follow the uniform guidelines and disobey them.

    • Michelle, I agree with you that GWHS shouldn’t have a dress code. Another reason I believe this is because the clothes people wear reflects their culture and how they see themselves.

  12. No, GWHS should not require students to wear a school uniform. There is no reason to wear school uniforms. The teachers would not be able to tell the students apart if they all are wearing the same uniform. Also, students would dislike school even more than they do now. Students who have to wear the same outfit to school every day might start having odors. If the school were to give students school uniforms, then fewer students would come to school.

  13. George Washington High School students shouldn’t have to wear uniform because that wouldn’t be fair to those students that can follow directions. If certain students can’t follow the dress code then the principal should handle them and not mess it up for the entire school. The city need to have a school that has a dress code policy like uniforms and those students that are wearing inappropriate clothes to school then they should go to a dress code school. Every student is big enough to wear the right type of clothes to school,especially in high school. For those students that are wearing holes in their pants or showing any skin through their clothes they can placed in another school. That can help the other schools from being so crowded, the students picking, and bullying each other. Maybe when students can follow the dress code procedures they can come back to their regular school.

  14. No, GWHS should not have a uniformed dress code. That’s because it would only make students not like school even more, students would like to show their different styles, not wear what’s recommended of them, and the uniform may not fit their cultural standards. Schools with uniforms are a more strict type of school. GWHS isn’t a strict school so, therefore I don’t need uniforms.
