    You must have never seen or read Lord of the Flies. The psychological aspects of that story are based on truth.

    Exactly. "Children do not have a choice." They are a protected class, which means their liberty rights are restricted while occupying that class. Parent's decide many things for them, and when they are at school the faculty and administration are empowered to act in loco parentis until a parent shows up. The government also has the authority to permanently remove children from the parent's control if it is determined they are being placed at risk.

    Soooo, children can be required to wear uniforms in order to attend school if it is reasonably determined to be in their best interests.
    If I stop responding it doesn't mean I've conceded the point or agree with you. It only means I've made my point and I don't mind you having the last word. Please wait a few minutes before "quoting" me. I often correct errors for a minute or two after I post before the final product is ready.

    You made this argument to me a few years ago. I didn't consider it good enough then and I don't now.

    Sorry... he doesn't buy that argument. Kids should have equal rights with regards to the decision making process of their lives as adults...

    What does that have to do with anything? Killing your own offspring has nothing in common with school uniforms.
