School uniforms are unfair sign now


"We, the parents and guardian's of the students of Waxahachie Independent School District, petition the WISD to stop the "Dress Menu" or the new school uniform dress policy.

Let me begin by saying that I am not fundamentally against uniforms. I am against uniforms being mandated in public free schools.
This policy is not only a direct violation of First Amendment rights to free expression, it violates a parent's right to decide, individually, what is best for their child and their family.

Children are being punished and shunned because of minor violations of the exciting policies.
The education of the children of our kids is what is important. Yet time and effort is being wasted on whether or not a child's clothing is the right color, or whether or not they are wearing the correct fashion accessory.

The children themselves will feel like just a number to the teachers with no individuality. A child's clothing is an expression of his/her personality. Nobody wants to go to a school that infringes on their rights.
Perfectly decent fashionable clothes can be bought at the cost to that of a standard uniform Therefore it's nonsense to suggest that poorer children will get picked on for there supposed "rags" that they apparently wear to school.

I understand that there are bullies out there that will pick on anyone about anything, whether you are wearing walmart brand jeans or a more expensive brand of jeans. Kids have to learn how to deal with these situations, it's just another step in life. And if these bullies cant pick on you about clothing there is always where your family went for spring break, and what kind of car your mom drives. They will always be able to find something, uniforms don't solve that issue even the slightest bit.

In short, I'm taking up this campaign because of the false example and "standards" that are meant to be set by wearing uniforms, but mainly because of its complete irrelevance to our society. The idea that teenagers and those even younger should dress and act as mini adults is laughably absurd! Kids, parents and teachers alike don't want school uniforms.

    I do not see the need for this "dress menu" as it is called. I would rather these teachers and educators educate my child than discipline them.

    I have always thought having a dress code in a Public School was rediculous. It is our right to show our individuality, and who we are. I vote NO on "school uniforms" !
