I hate wearing these. My school enforced them this year and they are terrible. According to the 1st ammendment to the American Bill of Rights, this goes against our freedom of speech and expression. Whaddya think?

That's nice.

Terrible that you have to wear them, or that they're designed terribly? Or both?

According to the 1st ammendment to the American Bill of Rights, this goes against our freedom of speech and expression.

*facepalm* No, they don't.

Whaddya think?

I can see both sides to the argument.

School uniforms ensure that the students will not be bullied based on clothing choice/lack of fashion or whatever, as well as eliminate inappropriate clothing choices and will allow students to (presumably) focus more on school than the socialization aspect.

However, it's nice to be able to choose your own look and feel, and to express yourself. If certain types of clothing are more preferable, you can wear them if you wish.

You're a minor. You don't have rights.

Sorry.

As for uniforms, I wouldn't wear them even if they attempted to enforce it. I cannot stand them, and will never support them. It is my right as a human being to wear what I so please, and any attempt to change the status quo to such a disdainful and unamerican practice would be a violation of my moral standard.

In non-fancy wording, I'd tell them to go **** themselves. You should do the same.

Perfect excuse for an unscheduled break. Get everybody to not wear their uniforms, and I mean everybody. They can't suspend you all, and you will eventually force them to remove the rule. If anyone objects, ostracize them from society as a whole.

Well personally it depends how your school's uniform looks like, and I love my schools uniform we have a white uniform and a black one.
But I wonder how school uniforms work in a public school due to the reason I attend a private school.
Well you can always ask for a day when students have the option to wear normal clothing or the uniform but most of it is due to preference.

Uniforms suck, I had them at my old school, I like being able to dress casual. Glad I don't have them anymore.

I have to wear polos at my school,there terrible.I play soccer and the sweat on the back of the collar feels like a sticky rag.

But on the first day of highschool (when I get there) I'm gonna get everyone to wear all blue or red.It'll be so funny because red and blue is not allowed there.

I honestly don't mind uniforms. I've been wearing them all my life, I don't see a problem with them. Sure I'd rather go in my jeans and tee, but I don't mind wearing comfy khakis and a button down shirt. My school has relatively nice uniforms. :D

It's not inflicting your first amendment... *headdesk*

But since it's public education, they pretty much get to tell you whatever and you can't do anything about it.
