Cons of the uniform policy

The uniform policy is finally being strongly reinforced. But will it really be effective on the students after all this time? Some students are already saying that they don't think the uniform should be a requirement in this school, "There’s no point in the uniform because people focus more when not in uniform because they’re more comfortable,” junior Steven Iglesias said.

It’s great to see the uniform policy finally being enforced. The best thing about it is the fact that it blindsided most students who have, in all honesty, stopped taking the policy seriously.

Some people may try to argue that the uniform policy has been a part of WJPS since the beginning, and that anybody who decided to come to this school understands that there is a uniform policy in place and they should be prepared to follow it.

There is absolutely no problem with expecting students to follow an enforced uniform policy, however, until now the uniform policy has been anything but enforced.

“I think that it’s weird for them to enforce the uniform policy three years into our time here, if they wanted the uniform policy to be taken seriously then they should have started a long time ago,” junior Kailey Bosyk said.

The only thing that was ever enforced was the requirement of the uniform shirt, and guess what, it worked. Students did not violate the uniform when all they cared about was the shirt.

This sudden monitoring of the uniform has done nothing more than give the students something else to complain about. People may start following the uniform policy, but nothing is going to change the fact that students look at the policy with any form of legitimacy.

The uniform policy should be enforced, the school is a uniform school after all and any student that comes here should be aware of the fact. However, the students that come here shouldn’t be allowed to think that the uniform only consists of a uniform shirt and out of nowhere are required to wear uniform pants.

“I think the way the uniform policy has been enforced is too sudden, nobody knows what they can and can’t wear anymore” junior Amanda Leone said.

The simplest fix to this whole problem is to simply return to the way things had been before, where the only thing being monitored was whether or not somebody had on a uniform shirt, it would make things much less stressful than they are currently.

“There’s no point in the uniform because people focus more when not in uniform because they’re more comfortable,” junior Steven Iglesias said.
