Students in comprehensive school are at the age of self expression and their schools hold back their individuality by stopping them from using makeup, having fake nails and are told they need to have natural hair colours. If they have to wear a uniform, which on it's own stifles their individuality, then they should be given the freedom to colour their hair and nails and do their makeup in ways that express who they are. Teachers show up to work sporting acrylic nails and obvious makeup, leading to a hypocritical way of teaching and could cause more defiance in students and less engagement with school if students are told off for things that the adults they are supposed to look up to are doing. It is an unfair situation for these people to be in and should not be looked past because as well as stopping them from being free to express who they are, they are also stopping them from finding who they are as a person, meaning when they leave the school, they will all be almost exact copies of each other and will not have the ability to be who they really are as they have been taught to be a clone, a replica of what the school standards made them meet. Having more individuality will lead them to do greater things and branching off into more open thinking workplaces, possibly leading to future changes in the world we know today. Rosa parks did what she did because instead of doing what society told her to do, she did what she knew would make a change, she fought for what she knew was right, she was an individual. If students in comprehensive schools are all taught to be the same, then they will be less likely to do great things and make a name for themselves.
