I am doing a debate with my class on dress codes, and I have to write a speech. One of my points is that uniforms remove gang violence and also cliques based on clothes. Could you give me the links to some articles about gang violence related to dress or cases/situations when people have fought each other or even killed each other over a garment of clothing?
Thank you so much!
I didn't find any examples or statistics about how uniforms removed gang violence. But you may find these sites helpful.
I forgot to add that I am affirmative, or pro-dress codes. Are there any more articles about cliques based on clothes? I'm trying to find a certain instance with a fight over clothes.
Try these --
I suggest you emphasize how dress codes may prevent bullying and insults.
Many years ago, fashion for girls dictated short skirts. One short, chubby girl I remember wore short skirts, but she showed more than was appropriate -- and grossed me out. Because short skirts aren't for everyone, school policies changed to allow girls to wear slacks to school.
You're very welcome. :-)
