    Re: Should school uniforms be banned?

    Here's what a grown man wrote looking back at high school upon graduating a few years ago, in which he experienced both public and private schools, one without uniforms (obviously public) and one with (obviously private):
    I went to a private school up until 10th grade (I couldn't STAND private school) and our uniforms were so strict (white button up shirt, black pants, black/white socks, black shoes, blazer with school logo on it) that if you did not wear your blazer during winter months you'd get written up. NOBODY was to take it off. And girls could not wear pants during the winter which was absolutely ridiculous considering it gets COLD here. They even measured skirts and checked our socks. I did not leave for the uniform, I left because the students were just pure rude and stuck up. I hated it. I loved public school, although it is very laid back and does have its problems, Private School can be just as bad at times only exception is that they don't make it public bc they don't want their reputation ruined. Students get expelled and fights etc... happen as well.

    It should be left to the school district, not the federal government

    They should never be in public schools. If you want your kid to have a uniform, send him/her to a private/religious school, end of discussion.

    School uniforms do exist in public schools.Many of the schools My nephews and nieces and their friends go to public schools in poor neighborhoods that require uniforms.

    This would prevent it from happening in the future, which is a good thing. I believe they should be made illegal, because there is no reason to have them and it's been proven that students perform better without them. What are your thoughts on school uniforms being outlawed?
    You keep saying this but you have yet to post any credible evidence to support this claim. Perhaps when you grow up and get a big boy job you might realize how stupid your rant against school uniforms are. If your schools are starting to implement uniforms then blame the students who were there before you. Public schools do not implement a uniform policy to look prestigious.They do it because of dumb ass wannabe gang banging scum, students trying to wear any and everything they can try to get away and all sorts of other problems.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    View is complete opposite.

    All schools should have it. Each uniform unique to the school. When they hit 16 and are now in college, they can wear what they wish because they have earned that privilege as adults.
    Baggy jeans and mini skirts on kids at school. No thanks

    Not here, obviously, at least to many of us.
    A problem may exist, there are better ways to handle this, with open-ness, honesty, respect, not repression and hatred as in N Korea, supposedly.
    I do not trust our media.
    An idea - if a child commits an offense, then the child and parent should face discipline together.
    Nazi Germany doesn't exist anymore. Maybe you need a history class. Schools are run by the States, and you need to cut the shrill. If you don't know anything about uniforms, then educate yourself first.

    My first thought is that you haven't participated any other time I've responded to you. I doubt you'll contribute now.

    My second thought is prove it.

    Do you know what anecdotal evidence is? This is worth less than even that. It's not evidence, just some guy bitching.

    It has been proven that students perform better without them? Was that an actual study, or just something in your own mind?
