I got an idea: in-vision this 1965 Boys hair could not touch the collar. Skirts had to be at the knees or lower. Girls could not where pants unless it was cold enough and it had to be broadcast over the radio. Girls 14 and under were limited to how much makeup they could use. Boys had to wear a belt and tuck in their shirts. Boys had to wear either black or white socks.
Of course it was a vision from the past and Yes I got kicked out of the house for to long of hair...........

I do believe if you do not take an active part in something (forums) You can grow stagnant. We all continue to grow from some of the strangest places, people and ideas. always liked "what if".....

wearing uniforms elimates the saggy jeans, pants worn down basically to the knees, where you have to walk so funny just to hold up your pants....girls wearing provactive clothes, tank tops, showing the tummy, belly bottons rings and what ever the new trend is these days.
Uniforms are not expensive and the other clothes can just be what ever you have from before.
I don't know maybe its just me, I much rather have to deal with them then deal with the cost of all the brand named fashion show they have in schools these days.

Uniforms does eliminates quite a few things expecially
the competition of high trend clothing. If everyone looks the same there will be less kids making fun of those kids that can't afford expensive clothing.

It does level the playing field but more importantly it allows kids to focus more on their work. I didn't like uniforms when I was in school but as a parent it:
saves money
discourages competition and "class" comparisons
makes it easier for the kids and parents in the morning

My son has attended private school with no uniforms but a modest dress code for 5 years. He would never have put up with wearing a uniform because he wants to wear long cargo shorts year round. He is now at a Catholic high school with a very modest dress code, and most of the kids are in jeans/sweatshirts. My daughter attends a Catholic elementary school and while she would rather have free dress, I like the uniforms because 1) our overall clothing expense is smaller, 2) she can get dressed in 5 minutes, rather than the 30 minutes it took her to pick out her clothes when she was in public school, 3) she is required to wear closed toed tennis shoes (many girls wear flipflops at schools with no uniforms), 4) all of the children are modestly dressed in uniforms, no tummies showing, no saggy pants, no skimpy tops etc. Along with the uniform, girls are restricted in terms of little makeup in middle school (none in elementary), no hair dye, jewelry, no nail polish, etc., which lets them be kids longer. My daughter looks forward to getting to high school, and having a modest dress code, in which she has some choice. Meanwhile, the uniform removes a lot of peer pressure to dress expensively for school.

I totally agreed with Quiltmom, all of the children are modestly dressed in uniforms, no tummies showing, no saggy pants, no skimpy tops etc. Along with the uniform, girls are restricted in terms of little makeup in middle school, no hair dye, jewelry, no nail polish, etc., they would be kids, instead of all that makeup in early years and all that grownup staff which kids are copying know from adults, there is time to be kids and time to be grown ups, why rushed.

if you choose a private school you go with the rules that are in place.
but in public schools no mandatory uniforms should be placed upon the students. Yes a dress code and hopefully fairly enforced for rules for all that attend

i have to say.. i am very dissapointed on how many people are selfish enough to pick uniforms. cannot you see that its your childs furture we're talking about? have you not noticed that you will always be pressured on the simplest things in the world? a childs individuality, development of personnality, creativity, etc, etc??? are not schools suppose to teach children to let us speak the minds of their owns? ocerall, children are the key to the future, and what we do to them, we are doing to the future..
