    If you are looking for sympathy, well, you have probably heard THAT joke....13 years ago I was 51...

    But, I wonder, what kind of uniform would the OP desire if he had the choice? There can't be many to choose from...
    There is saggy and baggy pants, or saggy and tight pants, with a short shirt to show off the boxers, or a long shirt to hide the tighty whities with skid marks.

    Re: Should school uniforms be banned?

    I don't think that uniforms should be mandated in public schools normally. If the schools are having a lot of issues because of the clothing the students are wearing, then the dress code should probably be changed or then, they can talk about school uniforms with the parents. The parents are the ones who are going to have to buy those school uniforms. It may be less expensive for someone who allows their children to buy new school clothes every year, not so for people who have many children and/or buy their children's clothes from Goodwill or thrift stores or get hand-me-downs from other relatives.

    Also, it is most likely that the schools will each have different color combinations and even styles of uniforms for their schools, and possibly each grade. That would really suck for parents who have to move around more than most families and could get expensive. It is not fair for schools to force more and more restrictions on parents unnecessarily. In most cases, distractions and/or violence from clothing worn at school can be dealt with through school dress code rules and punishments appropriate to what the violation is and how often the student committed such violations.

    I think the decision on whether to require school uniforms should be made at the local level, with perhaps some reasonable restrictions (no nudist schools? ) at the state and/or federal levels.

    Preferably not federal.

    Not a survey from 1997! Things have changed so much since those days that you can't possibly......Oh wait..no they haven't.

    What other objection do you have?

    It's a single research study that has been rendered obsolete by more current research. See, if you had a good education, you'd understand these things.

    Most uniforms in public schools are commensurate with parents' financial circumstances, and typically include khaki pants/skirts/shorts that can be worn anywhere, with a single-colored polo or cotton shirt.

    I'd suggest that these items could be purchased at goodwill and/or any other inexpensive store (Target, anyone?). Target, Walmart, and Old Navy all carry uniform-style clothing that will work with most schools' uniform codes.

    Oh schools have changed but anything of value change that would change the results? Not that I see.
