What are your feelings about uniforms in PUBLIC schools? I personally wore uniforms because I went to a private Catholic school. I happen to be all for them because when I left Catholic school for public school, I found it hard to find outfits to wear to school. It was like a runway show at school. I had to have the newest accessories, shoes, clothes. Shit my family couldn't afford, lol It's hard to try and keep up with others & of course there's that chanc of being made fun of because what you wear. But, uniforms take care of all of that. Problem solved.

But, my question here is: Are uniforms in public schools ok? Or should it just be part of private schools?

I bring this up because my daughters school which is new and has been open for 3 years now is going to switch to either school shirts & khaki's or with certain colored polo shirts. I'm a little against this. Your taking away from my childs individuality. But, in the other hand, it makes my life so much easier, lol

By the way, who should pay for this and what happens to the low income families, those particularly with more than 1 school aged child- What if they can't afford it?

Anybody wanna fuck?

I'm mixed. I feel a kid should have the freedom to wear what they want as long as it's not disruptive in the classroom. My kid's school system just started requiring uniforms mostly due to the gangs colors.

No, I think kids should be allowed to wear what they want, as long as it's within the dress code. I see nothing wrong with wearing jeans to school.

See, PP brings up a good point. They had uniforms because of gang colors. That I could understand. I could also understand if they did it to high school & middle school kids because clothes were too revealing or because of gang colors or to ban the baggy pants. But, this is to Elementary kids. Maybe I should have stated that. I don't feel there's a giant threat with elemtary kids & their clothes......but I could be wrong.

It was several years ago that this happened in certain areas around here. It coincided with fencing off the schools in violent areas and having metal detectors at the entrances. All of this was driven by gang shit. They did research and opinion polls and the parents were overwhelming in favor of the uniforms, fencing and metal detectors.

I do know that if I was forced to wear a uniform as a kid, that I would have screamed like a banshee.

Honestly? If all the kids wore uniforms, that would be one less thing for there to be wars over. Once the kids that are in school already got out, the uniforms would have been the norm for everyone else. No war with mom over what you can and can't wear to school, no war with other kids cuz you dress funny.. no two hour I've got nothing to wear tantrums.

I'm all for kids expressing who they are through how they dress etc.. but not so much in the school setting.

Just a few days ago, local TV news had a story 'bout some young girl that
was expelled because her hair had too much pink.

Although the thought of Sunshine wearing a Catholic School Girls Uniform
does cause a stirring in my tool belt.

I have to agree with a dress code. Here it heps prevent all th egang activity. Before they had a dress code kids were being beat up for thier gym shoes etc. Also if they weren't dressed like thier friends they got beat up for being in a rival gang, even though they werent in a gang. So yes , maybe not uniform but a dress code. Here they were Kakis and white shirts which are all very cheap at walmart


YES YES YES

Like Bruce said...if I had to wear a school uniform, I would have "screamed like a banshee" too. But, back then, there wasn't as much stupidity as what I see today. Kids getting beat up over a pair of Nikes, or, getting their $200 jacket ripped off.

I'm all for kids expressing their individuality, and they can do so after school While in school, they should be focused on studies, not what so and so is wearing. So, yeah, I'd be for school uniforms.

It's not the same world we grew up in. If you had posed this question 25 years ago...I would have said no way...but now...I think it would be better for the kids. Why?

- Because there are no problems with gang color issues.
- You won't get beat up for a pair of sneakers.
- You won't be judged harshly on your taste in fashion.
- You won't be judged for not being able to afford the lastest fashions.
- Parents will not have to take out a 2nd mortgage just to pay for a pair of shoes.
- There will be no arguments between kids and parents over clothes.
- Khaki pants and white shirts are cost effective.

JMHO...
