January 19, 2016 - School Uniform
SAUGUS —Â Parent Melissa Breda asked a School Department to cruise instituting propagandize uniforms since she feels it would radically make life most easier for students.
“It would discharge a standing quo,” she said. “I trust it would assistance families with a cost of putting kids by propagandize only with attire.”
According to Breda roughly 3.8 percent of Saugus families live during or next a misery level. She believes that requiring a uniform would assistance palliate a financial weight of fashion.
“It’s unequivocally unhappy to see a child laughed during since they’re not wearing a right garments or shoes,” she said.
Breda certified that has never happened to her children.
“We’ve been unequivocally fortunate,” she said. “But I’ve seen children treated badly since they weren’t wearing a right clothes,”
Breda and her husband, Eric, have 4 children, 3 in Saugus schools and one, who only started seventh class during a Pioneer Charter School, who contingency wear a propagandize uniform.
“It cost me $140 for a year’s value of clothing,” she said.
Breda pronounced she would like to see students compulsory to wear something elementary like khakis or chinos, a polo shirt and a cardigan. The schools could also have dress-down days and offer dress-down points, where students could acquire a right to skip wearing a uniform on special days such as their birthdays.
She pronounced she even found a association that would rise anÂ online emporium to make things easy for relatives and offering to give behind a certain commission of sales.
The theme is not an unknown one in Saugus. School Committee Chairman Wendy Reed pronounced it has come adult in a past and actions have been taken to tie a propagandize dress code.
“But we found in open schools we unequivocally can’t charge uniforms,” she said.
Reed pronounced they ran a commander module in dual schools where they offering shirts with a school’s name festooned on them in a hopes students would adopt their possess dress code.
“It didn’t take off,” she said.
Committee member Arthur Grabowski pronounced he concluded with Breda and even asked a executive of a Massachusetts Association of School Committees what could be done.
“The emanate of dress codes is a dicey one,” he said. “Legally we can’t charge them.”
Grabowski pronounced there are stipulations, if wardrobe is disruptive to a propagandize sourroundings or damaging to a tyro who is wearing it, it can be criminialized though they can’t spell out a process that for example, bars girls from wearing flip-flops.
“I trust teachers should have dress codes,” he added. “You can’t tell a clergyman they can’t wear jeans in a classroom since it’s not a reserve issue.”
Eric Breda wondered how Revere managed a dress formula when other open schools unsuccessful to make it work. According to a Revere High School handbook, Revere doesn’t have a propagandize uniform policy, what it has is a unequivocally despotic dress code, that it adheres to. Grabowski also remarkable that licence schools are authorised to make dress codes since students select to go there.
Eric Breda asked a cabinet if it would cruise reforming a subcommittee to demeanour into a emanate and Reed pronounced she would see if there was any seductiveness in a matter.
Committee member Rick Doucette suggested Breda competence wish to conflict a emanate on a state level.
“That was my thought too, going to a state,” she said. “I consider it should be statewide. we know it won’t take all a problems divided though it will help.”
