    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?
    Discipline and focus.

    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.
    Wouldn't it be easier and less expensive to just ban ''offensive and or distracting items, brands, colors, slogans and pictures"?

    What do you tell the parents that don't want their son to be dressed like a dork?

    No more gang signs, clothes, colors, etc.
    No more games of "how much flesh can I show before they bust me."
    No more "my brand is better than yours, so I'm better than you."
    No more focus on clothes, so they can focus on learning instead.

    Yes, I'm aware that the above aren't complete sentences. Tough.

    As I recall, discipline and focus are required of all students. Clothing doesn't take away, or add to that at all.

    No, that is not easier. Students attempt to "smuggle" these items under jackets and ****s and such and with a uniform it is obviously and immediately known if they are dressed appropriately or not. It is also not less expensive, as students by a couple pairs of shorts/skirts and shirts for a year or two at a bulk and consequently discounted price as opposed to buying may different "outfits" at generally a more expensive retail store price. Lastly, I have never once witnessed first-hand nor heard of second-hand any parent that complained about a uniform, and certainly not for anything as stupid and juvenile as "looking like a dork". Parents and adults like how the uniforms look and how the kids are dressed better than they would, in general, with their own clothes. Next?

    It does for the reasons that I have already outlined to you, he was just being concise since we all understand what is being disciplined and why they need focus.
