Yes and the school should offer them at no extra cost.
Yes and the parents should pay for them.
They should be optional for students who want them
There should be school uniforms for specific activities only
We should leave it to the parents to decide if the school should have uniforms
We should leave it at municipal/state level
We shouldn't have school uniforms at all
I like the current way things are.
I hate uniforms
I'm a potato.
While you and others want to continually tell me I am wrong on the issue, it may surprise you that the ACLU agrees with me.

And a simple Google search will reveal where other districts have fought to keep uniforms out of their public schools on 1st Amendment Rights and have won.
And yes I understand collectivism. It is the exact opposite of individualism.. and you obviously struggle with that one.
2. You have me pegged. I am a sexist. Because even though I told Chris it was sarcasm in the very post above yours, it obviously wasn't. Damn me! Must be rough for my daughters...
3. The ACLU is a moronic organization that defends Nazi's and terrorists. They can eat crap and die for all I care.
4. So what? Those people don't want uniforms. There is nothing unconstitutional about uniforms. That is why they are all over America.
5. No, you don't understand the difference. That much is very clear in your posts, as I have clearly pointed out. Show me where I seemingly don't know what individualism is then... you can't but go ahead and try!!
You're still stifling his expression. First amendment rights and all that.Our military is set up to be voluntary. So the picture of the marine in his dress blues made an INDIVIDUAL choice to serve knowing part of that service involved wearing a uniform.
They're welcome to go to a private school.But when you mandate uniforms on children in a public institution you take away their INDIVIDUAL freedom of expression whether it be personal, religious or cultural traditional dress.
Kind of like our military.You treat them COLLECTIVELY as a group.
Ironically, people who make ridiculous arguments never realize their arguments are ridiculous, even when presented with a parallel example they call ridiculous.Ironically, Socialist countries which claimed to oppose militarism in contrast often impose school uniforms.
They say you judge a country's freedom by how well it defends unpopular but legal activities. The ACLU doesn't defend the beliefs of Nazis, Jews, Christians, the thousand man marchers, or any other group of people. The ACLU defends the constitution, no matter how unpopular the activities under the Constitution may be.
