“Cappa clausa” was the term first used for uniforms, originating in 1222. Uniforms have never been liked by many students.
Some students feel that having a dress code holds them back from expressing their true personality and individuality.
“We need more freedom. Officials shouldn’t oppress us with uniforms,” said senior Robert Rivers.
Other students believe uniforms are unimportant. Advocates for uniforms believe they can stop a lot of problems, including bullying. Some kids are bullied because they don’t have the newest Jordans or the “dopest” pair of jeans.
“I feel like it's necessary for uniforms. Some kids don’t have it like others so to decrease bullying uniforms should definitely be enforced.” said Mrs. Porter, CMA’s academic interventionist.
In this generation, if your not flashing a Louis Vuitton belt or a designer bag, you’ll get dragged.
Although the rules are still in tact, many students show their uniqueness through their own uniform. Students still tend to showcase unity through developing the necessities to add a unique twist to their uniforms.
