I feel that cliques propel inequality, bullying, depression, and isolation. When people feel more elite than others they ignore other opinions and voices.

As someone else said. It teaches discipline and aids in people paying more attention to school and learning over trends and such. Many people see what others are wearing or apply makeup over looking at math equations or grammar rules.

When there is a dress code or uniforms that are enforced it is truly helpful.

Also, thank you for presenting a reasonable oppostion. Hope to see a reply from you or others.

one of the characters we learn from school is discipline, to have a dress code in school send the right massage to students that the equilities and discipline are important.

In my school makeup is not allowed and nor are the the fancy hairstyles allowed. Open hairs for girls are also not allowed. jewelry is not allowed too, just white and black watches are allowed, no color hairties are allowed except black and white. boys can't have long hairs, they can only grow their hairs upto a certain length which is quite short and the most important one, no cell phones are allowed . We have many restrictions and when asked why, the mostly reply that we get is that "these rules and uniform is for equality and school is not a fashion show u come here for learning not for showing".I can kind of understand their point.

But why have a dress code at all? If you don't have a dress code, it won't be violated. Indeed, there are some things that must be regulated when in a learning environment, but if you teach kids to focus on the work and not their friends when they should be learning, that wouldn't be a problem anyway.

Also, I don't see what's so bad about so-called "style cliques". There's absolutely nothing wrong with wanting to be around people you can relate to.

About inequality in regards to the previous point: This is not because of the school's allowance of different clothing but society's constant insistence that certain clothings are simply better than others and would rightfully gain you a higher standing in any group of people. This is bigger than dress codes - this is manipulation of an entire people done in order to gain sales/acceptance of your own style/power in general/maybe something I haven't listed.

I feel that they should. At the school I went to they did not and everyone violated the dress code. If we had uniforms it would be better and it would also close the inequality and style cliques and gaps that occured.
