At Judge Memorial Catholic Highschool, we have a school uniform policy. To me, it seems like there are different opinions on how people feel about school uniforms. But a world vote, says that 86 percent of
I agree with that students in school should be wearing uniform. Uniforms are a good idea but it blocks how much money kid’s parents can make and to avoid children trying to express themselves and finding their self identity. But there is a serious problem that the uniforms are too expensive for those of student‘s parents who don’t have economic conditions. I highly recommend that the school should decrease the price of those uniform.
Hi Cam, I found your piece very interesting. I have worn a uniform ever since I was in Kindergarten. I understand that it blocks people from expressing themselves or having a creative identity. However, I personally like uniforms. Maybe it is because I have spent my whole life wearing one, but I find them easy and convenient. I think that wearing uniforms is easier than having to find something new to wear everyday. Also, uniforms can offer a sense of inclusion to some kids. I agree with your when you said “Having a uniform dress code also has a lot of up sides. It prevents gang violence, make it easier for kids to dress, gives pride, promotes learning, etc.” I really enjoyed reading what you had to say, nicely done.

Hey there Eggert, its Cam. I saw your post and the photo got my attention. Over the last couple of years I’ve gotten to see you work in tech and I’ve seen you grow with your “technical stuff”. I don’t know a lot about being apart of a great power and of someone who is intelligent, who has made it far in life. But Bill Gates once said, “Su…[Read more]
Over the last couple of years we have seen a massive growth is our oceans trash and specifically the plastic. The trash is affecting our oceans animals and putting there health in danger. “Plastic has been f
I think this is a great post about the environmental effects of plastic in the oceans. Like you said, it is important to do something about this issue before it becomes too late. On that note, I would like to ask if you have looked at or read any articles that propose possible solutions to this threat. “We need to start showing the public this problem and making them aware of it”, I agree, but not only should we become aware of the problem; it is of utmost importance to have a viable solution that will be effective in reducing or eliminating plastic waste from the global ecosystem. Here I have linked an article that presents various solutions: https://www.oceanicsociety.org/blog/1720/7-ways-to-reduce-ocean-plastic-pollution-today
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
