Educators Concerned About Dress Code Standards In Schools - EntornoInteligente

Tuesday’s incident at Vauxhall High in Kingston where four teachers allegedly held down a student and cut his hair, has triggered sharp debate about standards of  dress for schools.        

Human Rights Advocate, Jaevion Nelson, has taken issue with the position held by school administrators about rules for how students should dress.

The Vauxhall incident is said to have been triggered by the student’s hairstyle which was allegedly in breach of  school rules.

“The rules in schools must make sense to the students and that the students can therefore feel comfortable in abiding by them ……..”Nelson said. 

 

And the Principal of  St Elizabeth High School (STETHS) Keith Wellington, argues that rules are essential for students.

He accepts that times have changed and some rules may need to reflect more modern realities. However, he insists that some values remain constant.

“We need rules, you know every single rule. Including the ten commandments were made to ensure that persons who would naturally do things but would normally do things for their selfish benefit –  they are controlled.

Rules are made to ensure that in a communal setting everyone is protected. 

 

 The sentiment is echoed by Principal of  Garvey Maceo High, Erica Ewbanks who contends that school rules are deliberately chosen, and they serve a wider social function.

“They are not arbitrarily done….. so what exited then – might not obtain today. In a school setting, once a child is breaking a rule, they end up hiding away…” she said.
