    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.
    It's an appeal to emotion. There's nothing pathetic about it.

    Attempting to use it as a valid form of debate, to me, is pathetic. So yes, it is pathetic. Wanna keep burying yourself or wanna try something else?

    I worked hard during my 9-12 grades to get our school's dress code abolished. I was a student council member with all honors classes. We didn't even have uniforms.

    Look at the adults who wear a uniform on the job. Every time that uniform serves a purpose. What purpose is served by uniforming children?

    It's not my fault you can't follow the flow of conversation. Guess honors classes aren't all that they used to be.

    Since you're apparently unclear on the requirements for a complete sentence, I'm going to take that as a compliment.

    It was pathetic. Good, you are trying something else.

    Your academic achievement is irrelevant just as is the fact that I was all honours and liked our dress code at school.

    It serves a great purpose for students to wear uniforms at school. The purpose that it serves with students is that they are dressed better and that offensive and or distracting items, brands, colors, slogans and pictures are kept out of the learning environment. Students are at school to learn. They can express themselves through art, writing, song, poem and speech all day long. They are not being repressed as individuals like you assert. If anything, they are being challenged to express themselves in differing methods, thus expanding who they are. They can and do wear what they like the rest of the time, if the parent allows it.
