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?

School uniforms are alright, its gives school spirit which most school don't have. It represents the school and you should be proud of it. The school board or who ever do it, has a reason why. A positive thing about school uniforms is that your being prepared for work like wearing a suit or being a mechanic and wearing overalls or what ever its called. Also you wouldn't so people wearing inappropriate things. statistically speaking its improves your moral to learn and get better grades.

Who gives a ****? Back in middle school, we had to write an essay about this, and I feel like the argument of "uniforms suppressing the expression of individuality" was just a pretense for what was really going on in these kids' heads: "****, these things are uncomfortable, and I look like a ***got."

On an unrelated note, I fully support the LGBTQ* community.

In a private school I have absolutely no qualms with requiring uniforms or a dress code of sorts (my old friend went to a different high school and had to cut down on his awesome mullet). It's a private institution of learning, a business of sorts, and can govern itself with its own laws because it receives funding from the people, not state (unlike public schools).

Your Friendly Neighborhood Satanist, however, has a problem with public schools enforcing a uniform code. The public school system is an extension of the state, and the state should not be able to meddle in the choices of any citizens on a level as personal as the clothes they wear. Let the students determine what they wish to wear in such an environment, be it a simple polo or an extravagant jacket-top-nonsensical-girly-nonsense piece. Let the sports kids wear their jerseys and wrestling t-shirts (

in the high school i used to be in, nad the elementary school before it, you could come with whatever pants you wanted, as long as they have less then 3 colors.
the school shirts were just colored t-shirts with the school symbol near the heart.

I have never been in a school with uniforms so I have never experienced what it would be like there. What could possibly be the point in forcing kids to wear certain clothing??

Uniforms changed nothing at my school. People just made fun of you more because your pants are too long or too short. Uniforms are expensive too, and it's better just to enforce dress code than to have uniforms.

Almost every school over here as a uniform, even most of the private schools.

I got to an all male school and the uniform is pretty strict:
You're not allowed to wear shoes other than black shoes, any jacket that isn't the school jacket, you must have your jumper on at all times; even though there is a school shirt.
Not allowed have any piercings, if you hair is long, you must tie it up.
And; you're not allowed to wear retainers.

I am in a school that required uniforms... I do not know what you guys are complaining about, clothing is clothing all that you're arguing about is typically because you want to wear certain logos, big whoop there is no difference, but if you have not realised uniforms helps stop discrimination over how you look, how much your clothing is worth... It does not mean that I like it or not just something to look at and think about

clothing is clothing


Different materials of clothing, though.
I personally find my school uniform itchy and uncomfortable.

uniforms helps stop discrimination over how you look, how much your clothing is worth.


This in my opinion; is the only plus of wearing uniforms.

Well you are an unlucky one then, most uniforms are fine.

I agree with that.

A uniform elementary school!! WOW thats terrible lol, normally happens in High School,

So if there is no uniform in a school it can down 3 ways basically;
1. You do not get discriminated or no one cares
2. You do get discriminated (no fun at all)
3. Sometimes you do get discriminated and sometimes you do not (
you have to deal with that one

LoL if you care so much then the schools do not disallow you to wear a thin comfortable shirt underneath the uniform, there are ways around everything.
Also it is a mere 6 hours of sitting down unless your in hands on courses, Well consider this how would you like it if you wore a shirt and someone came up and judged you about that, I do not think that anyone would want that, so wearing a uniform would help to sop that discrimination.

I am here just stating some points of why it is good, I could name a thousand irrelevant or merely useless points that means nothing about why it is bad, but I will not because there are no really good points in my opinion unless you can show/prove myself otherwise.

So I honestly do not care about school uniforms just showing the ups

School uniforms are a good thing. its not like without them you will start puting costums to "show your personality". That how it seems from your crying. "without school uniform, ill go to school with HALO armor so everyone will know what i feel". Cut that crap. most of you will just take the first shirt they grab.

There are 2 main reason fro school uniforms:

1) economic - its much cheaper to buy school uniform then regular cloths. So there is no barrier between richer and poorer kids, only there pesonality matter. Also, it help the parents.

2) Order - it might sound stuiped, but its much easier to see someone who is not belong when everyone else are with uniform. sure, he can get a discuise and wear the uniform to enter, but mostly it dosent happen. It give you some pride, even if you dont recognise it yet.

I know its very 'in' right now to be a hipster, wear whatever you want to "Show your feelings/personality/style", but its a Educational framework, not the mall. If you want peopel to see the wonderfull combination of your shirt and your pants, go to a club. The school is meant for other things.

Sorry but that does not work for every school, my school clothing costs a lot more than my normal everyday wear. So yes you are right in some areas but not all.

Here is another reason for uniforms, uniforms show your school pride
