    You said that all of my arguments were true... They are. That is all that matters.

    Your arguments would have merit if you weren't trying to do the most extreme thing possible here. Not allowing individual expression is simply unacceptable
    Parents already do the most extreme thing possible here... and trhat is to not allow individual expression of their children. This is just an extension of that. You don't see merit in my argument but my argument is literally perfect in its logic.

    Re: Do you support school uniforms?

    I do not support school uniforms in public schools. Private schools is another matter. I am a strong advocate for individualism. I'm really getting tired of the mamby pamby collectivist thinking so dominant in our society these days. Now dress codes in public schools have become so Political Correct that in many instances, students are not allowed to show any signs of political thought or religious expression. So much for the land of the free. If the student wants to show up in a NRA tee shirt, it shouldn't be any skin off of anyone's nose anymore than a student showing up in a red star socialist tee or sporting a Che Guevara motif. And that goes for religious items such as crucifixes, star of David, yamakas, or head coverings. No student should have to check in at the front door of any public school in this country any expression of such things.

    If you can't maintain order, then nothing else matters. You can not educate anyone in a situation of chaos.

    I highly doubt that if we were dealing with chaos that uniforms would be best the way to resolve the problem.

    Uniforms would only be a small part of the solution.
    Having the adults in charge would be a much larger part of it.

    I think a lot rides on how you define chaos. For most educators who are the product of Political Correct Academia, the definition of chaos to them may be anything outside Political Correct thinking. In other words I think the case can be made the so called chaos is being conjured up by the educators themselves.

    When I use the word, it means kids coming and going as they please, dressing and acting as they please, no structure to classes, students not paying attention to teachers, not finding in necessary to complete assignments, that sort of thing.

    Thinking outside the box is a good thing. Any sort of thinking that actually gets the gray matter working is a good thing. Independent thought is not chaos.

    I actually liked wearing my school uniform. It was also nice when we had special days and activities, and then we dressed casual.

    I generally find those who are against political correctness are those who are racist, sexist or otherwise prejudiced and hate the fact they cannot express their prejudiced views without others calling them out for it. Does this describe you?

    Wanting a strict dress code has nothing to do with political correctness. It has to do with promoting the best learning atmosphere possible.

    I'm against political correctness for the most part, but I am for a dress code. I must be really mixed up!
