    I have asked you questions which you won't answer... made analogies that you have ignored and searched your page for kids... I have no idea where to find that info. Anyway... debating with you is fast becoming a waste of time.
    Who said we were debating? You're offering up arguments in support of the benefits from losing your individuality and conforming to the group. You can't hope to pull me to your side using it as the basis of your argument. I'm far to much of an individualist to consider it as a acceptable argument.

    Not quite that old, but as an Air Force brat I lived in several different locales, including some with old school ideas. My dad was born in the late 20's, served in WWII and Korea. I was born in the 50's.

    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.

    Thanks for sharing your opinions. You are wrong.

    Re: Do you support school uniforms?

    As the mom of two teenaged girls, I'd love uniforms. It's an equalizer between the classes, which is greatly needed at this age. So much animosity between kids these days, with "You aren't as good as me because you don't have "blah blah blah" clothes." I like how uniforms take the focus off of how much money someone has, and at least tries to put the focus on academics.

    Plus, holy guacamole, I just paid almost $1,000 for school clothes for 2 girls, and they didn't even get a lot - 5 pairs of pants/jeans each, 5 shirts each, a pair of sneaks each, a pair of sandals each, a 6-pack of socks each, a package of undergarments each, and that's it. $1,000. That's not including school supplies, $800 a year for lunches, and everything else.

    Nothing prepares kids better for prison then getting them used to uniforms.

    LOL. That's a little extreme don't you think? Besides, they look cute in them. When we make them wear orange jumpsuits with leg irons, then I'll be on your side.

    See, for a guy that would be a lot of clothes...apparently for a girl? Not so much! LOL

    That's a lot of money! You are such a good mommy. BTW, any more mice in your sink? Or was that someone else....

    Am I wrong? To be an individual means you accept certain risks, while on the other hand if you conform to the group many of those risks go with that decision. I already knew this long before I learned of any studies results on school uniforms or heard anyone talk of the benefits of schools having uniforms. It takes no amount of study to know that if everyone dressed the same that people would have less to separate themselves from others and this would cause certain tensions to be resolved as a result. Anyone with any amount of experience in this world can figure it out on their own. You aren't teaching me anything by reporting on it and I'm not at all moved by any of the benefits you have presented. Sorry, but I find nothing of value in simply being part of a collective.

    Thousands of high-end private schools would prove you wrong.
