    I, along with everyone else, would appreciate reduction in all of those things.

    The problem is that gang-bangers will still use signs, handshakes, and texts to do what they do, uniforms, or not.

    Possibly. I have some wonderful case studies though that suggest everything I listed is quite dramatically improved by making kids wear uniforms. Maybe gang-bangers need baggy jeans to act thug.

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?
    We do things a little differently here in the US. Some of our parents might oppose uniforms.

    Cell phones are also banned. I see them or think that I see them and I confiscate them.

    I'm an American and taught in northern and southern California at public and private schools with and without uniforms for over ten years. I have a more well rounded experience in education than most people you will ever meet. I know what I am talking about quite clearly.

    Interestingly enough. You have fired one of my debate bullets. You may like it. Many may like it, many may not. The military is of course the top tier of uniform wearing. You cannot put students in uniforms and say that there is no connection to military indoctrination. At least not with a straight face.

    There is no connection. You'll have to take my word that my face is straight.

    I only brought it up because military members will also get in trouble off base, much like bodi's students can be identified off campus.

    Once you understand the irrelevant and incorrect nature of that position you can... unless you think that there is also a retail store indoctrination and a roadside workers indoctrination and a nursing indoctrination and a Foot Locker worker indoctrination and an NFL official indocrination...

    Yes, I'm aware that the above aren't complete sentences. Tough.
    Can't have any of that! What will we do? Get over it? Yeah, that seems like a good start.

    Only one is legit. The other are meh, get over it.

    The one that is legit however, is a hard lesson of life. Dress like you want it and you will get it. Lesson learned!
