Use of school uniform for students & children
Uniform is an obligation for many employees and students.
The employees working for different positions/posts like the pilot, chef, police, hospital, etc. wear it as a professional requirement.
But students perceiving courses at different levels like schooling, college, etc. wear it for other reasons.
Though this uniform is meant for an identity of the job for employees, its necessary for school children was a question from my childhood days.
Once a science teacher gave us a funny and exciting clarification regarding this issue.
Use of school uniform:
As per her the different reasons of a suit to school going children are as mentioned below.
♠ Dress: let us assume dress to be a shirt, pant and/ gown in some cases. This is mainly fixed for reasons like
♠ Prevent disparity or odd feeling among children. This is needed because a guy of the wealthy family may wear an excellent attractive dress than his fellow student who may not be able to afford. So fixed uniform can minimize this feeling much and help the student focus on their study aspects.
♠ Dress of the uniform also indicates that he/she is a student and also since this costume is unique for every school regarding color or design of the dress, the students and faculty can identify if he belongs to their school or college.
♠ Shoe: My teacher gave a fascinating explanation about this. As per her, the shoe in growing school children helps their toes of the feet to assume a composed and closed structure avoiding any gaps in between. Thus wearing a boot contributes to the proper shape of the toes of the feet.
If you want to clarify, check out those guys who regularly wore shoe during their childhood and those who did not. You will notice a definite difference in toe arrangement.
♠ Further shoe minimizes chances of injury to the foot of the children and students as they cover the entire foot. In case students are working in labs, they protect feet from damage by accidental slippage of acids, harmful chemicals, etc. on to them.
♠ Tie: This is even humorous. As per her tie covers the buttons of the shirt from appearance to the opposite people. Further, it fixes the collar in a tight format giving a professional look.
♠ Belt: This is meant to cover the buttons or hooks of the pant or gown and also help in close fastening of slack to the hip. This prevents any chances of the wardrobe malfunction.
Even more both Tie and belt also have a particular color unique to the school or institute.
♠ I.D card: Provides identity of the student to others as it includes name, address, designation, etc.
