meh i never cared for school uniforms. they werent teribble either (we just had a shirt with the symbol of our school). i did notice that pretty much those who were against it were just against it because its cool to be a rebel. after a few weeks no one cared and even noticed.

besides, what are you going to do when you have to work? many places expect you to wear uniforms. when you are a part of an organization/grou/whatever you have to wear a uniform weather you like it or not. i do think that people make a big deal out of clothes and pay to much attention to that.

personally, i dont like uniforms either. but thats just because i dont want people to see me as the uniform. i dont like military uniforms because i dont want to be just another soldier and things like that.

during work, i dont have uniforms but thats because of a mistake they did and im not complaining. i dont even wear my name tag as long as i know i wont see the boss. if i have to though its not that big of a deal anyway. our school uniforms werent horibble and people wouldnt just consider you as just one of those students because you pretty much wear it in school only and the only people there are wearing that too and those who dont see you as a student even if your not wearing those clothes so those didnt matter. actually i found myself wearing that shirt even when not in school because i didnt care.

Eh, cheer up, I had to wear uniforms for all of my compulsory school life - it wasn't THAT bad and it's better than messing up your own clothes when you're messing around with friends or doing something that could stain your clothes in class.

If you're in the army, you're not going to tell the sergeant you refuse to wear the uniform are you? You go to a pubic school, you comply by the rules. I've been doing it for more than a decade, and I don't care. I'm in school all day, not at a club to socialise when appearances really matter.

I'm required to wear school uniform. Most schools in New Zealand are. I approve because my uniform is quite fine, and it saves me from the fuss of having to care about what clothes to choose. I go to school to learn, not to parade around like a moron.

@nichodemus

Of course, people who really love their civil liberties will demonize school uniforms. Constitution, constitution, constitution.

As expressed by others in this thread, school uniforms have their pros and their cons. But really, why throw a huge fit over them? They're just uniforms. Are they worth the trouble?

(Say yes and I'll give you a cookie)

If that's the case, anything can be construed as violating my freedom. I can't spray graffiti? Heck, that's infringing on my right to expression! Revolt!

Some people are too vain.

Anarchy for the win. Kidding.

I agree with you, Nicho.

And for anyone with silly ideas: I actually have no problem with wearing casual to school, and I would love to if I had a better wardrobe. However the way this thread has been opened disappoints me. Playing the constitution card without elaborating. I don't mind you resort to your constitution but please, elaborate.

Oh, and spell "amendment" properly before you open a thread on the WEPR. I usually avoid this board for a reason.

My school doesn't have uniforms, just a dress code. Pretty much you can wear anything that isn't sweat pants, and anything that isn't a tee shirt. You're required to wear the previously named articles to gym though. I don't support dress codes or uniforms, but I really couldn't care less about them.

Then theirs the white uniform which is the same except it's all white XD.
We can wear anything we wish on Fridays though.

It is my right as a human being to wear what I so please

That's absolutely right,but keep in mind that " a person's freedom ends where another person's freedom begins". Maybe it's not expressed perfectly, but the idea is that ona can wear whatever he or she prefers, but it's important not to offend other people.
