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?

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.

So EnterOrion hows your swag working out for you? Nah your probably on welfare at 19 (or however old you are) and will be for the rest of your life. And if your not yet old enough to work (if you would) you have to wear a uniform at McDonalds, and any other fast food joint that you may be able to work at. I am hard pressed to think of one company that allows you to wear what you want to. There are some that does but they have to fit into a "sit" look so in a way its still a uniform.


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

Depends on what the uniform is. I didn't go to a uniformed school but the school the next town over did and **** $100+ for a uniform plus they said we had to have 4 diffidence ones. One for the beginning of school, one for mid November- January. One for February-March. And one for the end of school.

I see both sides really. One side i see once you start to work you will have to wear a uniform unless you have welfare swag. But the other i don't think you should in school have a strict policy.

But going by what some people wear these days. I think a uniform is a good way to go but it be cheap. I.e cost no more then $60 (still alot back in my childhood days we could barely afford 1 new pair of blue jeans) and have 2-3 varieties that could be wore.


[quote]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

This love it.

As I said earlier it depends which school as you stated but I love how you said that there is no barrier

What I realised a couple days ago a kid thought it would be 'cool' to wear uniform jeans but not the t-shirt. He was the only kid in school who did that... He was told to put on his uniform, didn't have it with him, so he was asked to walk home and get it so he did it. What a waste of time when he could have learned something. After that day he did not do that again LOL

We've got to wear a specific type of shoes here, so, technically they are part of the uniform.

Well, My uniform was actualy a shirt with the school symbol on it... something like 5$ at the max {any color you want}. In that case, Its was much more cheaper, you could see people who dont wear them and it gave much space for class pride {my 'mother' class made our own shirt with a art on the back, my computer class did one also and so on}.

But even your expensive uiforms. how much you need? 7 for max? 8? its still less than the cost of cloths you need. its the best excuse. you want to come to school with the same shirt day after day?
i remmeber once in my class, there was a kid who alywas came in that same shirt. the class actualy collected money to buy him some new cloths, just to see that very day him with a difrunte shirt. he was just lazy to get some new ones, he wasnt poor or anything {we know that for sure}.
So with uniforms, you dont have to think what you gonna wear. even me, who dont give a crap on clothing {no, im not going out in the nude, thank you} find it easier to handle. I had some 'good' shirts that i wear when i go out with friends, i had some shirts to hang around in my home, thats it. easy, cheap and space saving. When i finished school i find out i dont realy have much shirts. Im quite miss the uniform shirt, but i dont want to wear them {you know... too soon...}.

Well my pants cost 50-60$, shirt costs 20-25$, hoody costs from 20-60$, you have an optional jacket that can be worn in class, if it isn't uniform must be put into your locker, there are hats, socks etc but some of these are optional.

Think about a much higher cost, and I have 2 brothers, we all wear different sizes have a lot of sets also and we are not rich... It difficult when you have bigger families

Oh, yes. I forgot.
Jacket costs â¬50.

Does your school not have a 'rental scheme' where you can rent out the uniform for the year, at say 50% or something of the store price, but you need to return it at the end of the year.
Same applies for books.

So, you get to wear rugby shirts to school?

That isn't too bad, then, since you could wear them outside of school.
