    Do you support school uniforms?

    I think they're a great idea for most schools.

    They boost integration and respect and I also think they should be free of charge for the parents initially. Each student should have 3 (random number > 1) school uniforms given by the school at the sizes of the student and if the parents want additional school uniforms, they should pay for them.

    So what do you think?

    I had them in school and hated them as a student. However, looking back, a lot of social issues are solved with uniforms. For instance, nobody can pick on you because of the clothes your parents can or cannot afford because everyone wore the same thing.

    Re: Do you support school uniforms?

    From my perspective I'd say no. In most cases uniforms are butt-ugly, but my main opposition to it is basically taking away a medium of individual expression which can spark debates and discussion.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    I voted that parents should pay.
    That said I want them sold at COST no profit to school
    and if on assistance 3 or so could be given for free as in
    your example.

    I want parents to pay so that they will be taken care of better.

    Up to the schools themselves to decide. Personally, I don't favour school uniforms. But I don't really have strong opinions either way.

    I do not think schools should have uniforms period ever. A dress code is fine but not a uniform.

    Sacrifice individualization for order. Self expression for conformity. No, I don't support them. I'd never wear one, regardless if it resulted in my being suspended from school. Uniforms are superfluous, and often uncomfortable. Think the bullying will end because people can't pick on others because of their clothing? Wrong... bullies are very adept at finding idiosyncrasies to poke fun of. I like my clothes, lax fitting, mundane, conveying my indifference to fashion. I like other people's clothes as well, it gives me a "although at times superficial" basic understanding of their personality. How short are their shorts? Why wear pajamas? Very dressy, must be orderly and desire a professional atmosphere. Etc.
    Either I'm right or you're wrong.

    I think its just another crutch for parents to lean on that dont want to take an active role in their childs education.
