Does dress code contribute to bullying? by Mind Map: Does dress code contribute to bullying?

1. Dress code doesn't contribute to bullying.

1.1. School dress code is not needed (Buggs).

1.1.1. ¨They say wearing, dress codes will help cut down on bullying" but students should be free to express them selves through their clothing¨ (Buggs). This matters because I believe everyone should be able to express themselves in any sort of fashion.

1.2. Schools are going over the top and banning all images instead of just problematic images (Robson).

1.2.1. Dress code helps kids learn how to dress appropriately for certain situations which is an important life skill. This means that kids are adjusting to requirements of the adult world.

1.2.2. Dress code restricts problematic clothing but they are now banning bracelets and the fabric of children's pants which isn't serving anyone (Robson). This relates to the view point because schools are abusing the power of dress code to ban anything they choose.

1.2.3. School dress codes are going well beyond safety concerns T-shirts with slogans or logos bigger than 2 inches by 2 inches are banned (Robson). This makes me think because school dress codes have pros and cons but they should still be reasonable.

1.3. Dress code doesn't contribute to bullying because bullies can hurt your feelings in different ways.

1.4. Dress code doesn't contribute to bullying because it isn't accomplishing anything except isolate kids from themselves.

2. Dress code contributes to bullying.

2.1. Girls are at risk of potential rape because the dress code hasn't been changed (Lindsay).

2.1.1. Kids here are still struggling finding their own identity "We don't want to make them feel uncomfortable" (Lindsay). This means kid should be able to express themselves with clothes because they are still finding their identity. The need to learn about and discover themselves in the early years of their lives.

2.1.2. See-through clothes, spaghetti straps, hats, and gang-related colors are examples of what the school's dress code bans "The message I hope to send while we're in here is that the business of education can coexist with a woman choosing what she wants to wear," (Lindsay). This makes me think about my school and what restrictions they have on our dress code.

2.2. Having dress code reduces conflict and helps with order and discipline (Daniels).

2.2.1. The National School Safety an organization that works on school safety, supports school uniforms and dress codes because it "can play a significant role in reducing security threats and improving school safety¨ (Daniels). This connects to the view point because is is an organization that works to reduce conflict through dress code.

2.2.2. The benefits of school uniforms are ¨Decreasing violence and theft; preventing gang members from wearing gang clothing at school; helping students concentrate on academics¨ (Daniels). This matters because it shows that enforcing the school's dress code is beneficial.

2.3. Dress code contributes to bullying because people who don't accept another persons clothing will bully them.

2.4. Dress code contributes to bullying because when their is a dress code everyone dresses the same and are treated equal.
