I think that dress codes should be locally determined and subject to parental discretion. Personally, I'd welcome them at my children's schools.
Sounds like a recipe for squelching over-achievement in areas not prone to the uniform masses.
D0GBREATH, DOES THIS INAUGURAL GOWN MAKE MY ASS LOOK BIG?The jokes write themselves!
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.
