JTCC - Rights Within Our Rules
JTCC - Rights Within Our Rules
Why should school depict how we as young individuals represent our self's to society, to the public, to the world. Why should someone who has probably not even met most of us or if they have probably not even remember most of our names be able choose how our hair is, or what nails we wear, or how much jewellery we wear, or what shoes we wear or even what bags we take to school. They don't know us, they don't what our personalities are or let alone who we inspire to be. No instead they think it's ok to turn the future generations into zombie-brained robots who all think the same, dress the same, have no creativity.
Because at schools now you don't get to be creative as much as you should. No instead they teach everyone the same thing, the same way. This goes for uniforms too, I mean having everyone grow up being forced to dress the same way is the same as crushing creativity within a classroom. But instead of with knowledge school's choose to crush it with clothing. Because clothing is really just a spin-off your personality and creative choices. The truth is pretty soon people aren't going to be hired based of their grades, no they will be hired based off their creativity. This is because no one is going to be hired of what they know in the near future, instead people will be hired based of how creative they are not because of their test scores. Which test scores alone should not be a thing all they do is down grade one persons self esteem and boost another's ego. That's what leads to other people thinking they are higher up then someone else. Sure money has a part in that but in this century someone's ego has a much bigger part.
Also don't schools realise yet that they take uniform rules too far. For example out of 3 classes maybe two girls have two piercings in each ear that are hardly noticeable and the school makes a big deal about that due to it being one of the many 'rules' that they see are more important in some circumstances then a students mental health. This isn't always the case but sometimes schools spend so much time stressing over these two students having multiple piercings that they don't even realise that in just one of those classes there are probably multiple students suffering from anxiety or depression. Sure the school will eventually notice and find out about this issue and focus on it. But yet when they could be spending time helping students mental health they instead choose to enforce over the top 'rules' on students for having piercings that people didn't even notice until they were pointed out.
Schools need to change and understand that their rules are not working in modern day society. Also what about basic human rights, should we not be able to choose simple things like how our hair is or what bag we use. The bag alone with nothing in it ways more than an average bag. Why do schools think so many students forget things, if anything it's probably so they don't damage their back carrying the bag to and from school. At this point it's feels as if school isn't preparing us for our futures due to our creativity being crushed, and it feels as if they don't even understand the serious danger we are put in by carrying around these bags all day - this alone could lead to students having serious back problems later in their lives, this is the future generation more thought should be put into our rules.
