    Re: Uniforms in public schools...

    I think that dress codes should be locally determined and subject to parental discretion. Personally, I'd welcome them at my children's schools.

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?
    Outlawed? That is ridiculous. And you have shown zero evidence that uniforms hinder a students performance, where as a few of us have first hand experience regarding the benfits of them. Evidence? Proof? Teenager whining?

    I'm with Solace on this one. Uniforms should be outlawed for public schools. What a terrible tragedy to remove individuality from children while they are growing up. It screams: "You mustn't be different. You need to be the same as everyone else."

    Sounds like a recipe for squelching over-achievement in areas not prone to the uniform masses.

    The tragedy is those that viewing dressing as an individual as an achievement.

    Yes, we think differently. Tragedy? Not hardly.

    Individuality is removed from children when they can't wear what they want to school? Seriously? You think that?

    Terrible tragedy, huh? See, hearing this kinda makes me dismiss your whole opinion since, after working at schools that have dress codes and seeing nothing wrong with them in the slightest and at one, hearing kids say that they wished that they had better uniforms than the ones that they had, well... terrible tragedy just comes across as a pathetic appeal to emotion.

    Hahaa... like this one a couple of posts up:

    "Not hardly."

    Really now, playing that little game is so juvenile. Is plug your ears up next on the game list?
