No more uniform for Seniors?

After 10 years District 201 decides to get rid of uniforms –but only for seniors.

School uniforms are traditionally favored by private and parochial schools in the U.S. are now in favor of having students wear uniforms. In the 2015-2016 school year, about one in five public schools in the US are requiring students wear uniforms. In a recent study, uniforms being required in public schools are most common in high poverty areas.  It is said that uniforms make schools safer, makes students focus more, and reduces socioeconomic differences. In reality, school uniforms have no real effect on behavior, academic achievement, and it violates student’s rights to express their individuality. In a random survey of 120 Morton students, 100 of them agreed on having the District get rid of uniforms because they are useless and they don’t have much impact on anybody.

“I didn’t think they would ever change the uniform rule to a non-uniform rule for the seniors,” senior Adan Ortiz said.

Morton District decide to begin the uniform rule in 2008 because of the clothing line of the early 2000s.

“With the uniform policy I never got to express my style of clothing,” senior Stephanie Ortega said.

Some students would like an opportunity to express their style and others don’t seem to mind.

“It doesn’t matter if there are uniforms or not,” senior Anthony Figueroa said.
