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?

I hate having to wear uniforms. They look sooo bad. I mean i don't mind school jackets and crewnecks and accessories, but the standard uniforms they make you wear sucks. Except Catholic Schoolgirl students. That's just hot.....

Go to Japan. The skirts are like waaaaay above the knee. If only they had those here -.-

lol i think we can all agree that japanese style uniforms dont count in this thread :3 (except for maybe japanese people who dont like wearing them).

This school year has almost ended and none of my classmates except one guy are wearing their uniforms. Teachers said that if we won't wear those uniforms we will also have to look totally same. (what was important was uniforms, we were allowed to use some green or pink or whatever sweaters) but it seemed like the uniforms weren't that important and as I said before we were allowed to not wear them. Now our teacher told us news that were bad for the whole class. NEXT YEAR IF WE WON'T TAKE OUR UNIFORMS WE WILL HAVE TO SAY GOOD BYE TO OUR SCHOOL! This time it doesn't matter if there is all 17 of us or noone we will obligate need our forms whitch really sucks.

Somehow I think you either misunderstood or the teacher was lying. I find it highly unlikely the entire school's budget comes from selling a new uniform every year.

if there is all 17 of us or noone we will obligate need our forms whitch really sucks.


All 17? Woah boy, that's a big school. ...wait, no it's not.

School uniforms are a double- edged sword... They do help aleviate some of the attacks on students, but they're not going to stop all of them.
That's not the point of uniforms though. The school uniforms are to teach... Uniformity. In the real world, you don't get to stand out at work. You are just one gear of many in a well- oiled machine. School uniforms are just to teach that you don't wear a punk band shirt and skinny jeans to work. You wear a button- down shirt and slacks (depending.)
Freedom of expression is an illusion. You don't get to express yourself through dress. Besides, what are you expressing? does your gory, bloody death metal band shirt express art? what does the nearly naked girl on your shirt express?

Overall, the school uniforms argument is just plain dumb.

I think the idea of uniforms is wonderful.
Everybody looking the same, nobody breaking dress code and having sex in the band room (happened for real at my school) and nobody has to worry about what they're gonna wear.

School uniforms are absolutely horrible being forced to wear something is completely against the first ammendment. I would honestly sue if my school had uniforms maybe there would be a law that makes it so schools can't make you wear a uniform

Just go to school naked and burn your uniform and let every one else know the day before you do this so that way they can participate too.

I can't argue much with that. If I wore punk band shirt and skinny jeans to work I'd get taken out back and beaten with a rubber hose. Though, the same might happen if I wore a button down shirt and slacks. All in all, a good life lesson.


does your gory, bloody death metal band shirt express art?


Though I've never worn a gory bloody metal band shirt, mostly because I don't have one, music is art and for some can be a form or religion or an expression of one's religion. It was Jimi Hendrix that said "Music is my religion.", when he was asked about his religion.


what does the nearly naked girl on your shirt express?


The female form is art in itself. It's not only been the countless subject of art but the inspiration/muse of countless artists.

School uniforms are fine. I went to private school and had to wear them. It didn't bug me or anyone else. Less to think about in the morning, and also (usually) cheaper. Besides, most kids in school subscribe to a uniform of sorts with their crowd. Where I went to public high school, you had four main crowds: "jocks" wore underarmor or their team T-shirts, goths wore black, &quotreps" wore abercrombie, north face, or polos, and everyone else wore random stuff.
Uniforms merely remind people that they all belong to the same school instead of only a group within the school.

In my school we don't wear uniforms fortunately

In my opinion students shouldn't wear uniforms because they aren't independent!!!!!!!Wearing clothes that u choose is showing your character!!!!I think is boring to watch the same clothes in every day

In the other hand the school uniforms are showing the popularity,how popular the school is.

I think i am lucky that i dont wear uniforms!!!

Sometimes I don't get my teachers. If I wear the uniform, but I put my sweater on it so nobody can see I have a uniform. Seems, the teachers don't care, what matters is that I wear it, WHAT'S THE POINT then?
