    We had to buy ours through the school and the cost wasn't that bad... but they did let us vote on which uniforms we wanted to wear and which colors. We were divided in grades and genders, so it was like 30 votes at the most.. not that big of a deal, but you knew what grade everybody was in by their uniform, the color, or jackets..

    That's neat.

    We had a basic set of white shirts, Tie, a blazer, grey or black pants optional, and then all of the sports gear which included home and away shirts for football (soccer), extra PT gear, swimming costume, the whole ****ing deal.

    They did a cool thing for those that reached the final 2 years there, they could wear their own suits, whatever colour they wanted, they had to stick to a school tie whether it was a sports tie awarded, the basic one or your house tie.

    I miss those days.

    This. Schools should be able to make some decisions for themselves, and this is one of them.

    Public schools should require uniforms.

    School officials and students have been playing games about student dress for years. Mini skirts were the issue back in the '60s, with girls wearing them too short, teachers measuring, girls hiking them up when teachers weren't looking, and so on. Now, it's gang attire, hoodies used to hide faces and earphones, pants in danger of falling off, and on and on.

    Kids will do better if they look better. Attitudes improve with appearance. Teachers and administrators have better things to do than play dress code games. Parents shouldn't feel they have to buy the right brands for their kids to be popular. Kids should be required to wear the uniform of their school, or find another school.

    I can be authoritarian when it comes to kids.

    Re: Uniforms in public schools...

    I think school uniforms are just fine. You are there to learn, not for a fashion show or prove who is the coolest. Uniforms do away with the need for an enforcible dress code etc. It saves a lot of headaches in the long run.

    In the end we don't care what the "kids" want, that's because they are still "kids."

    Re: Uniforms in public schools...

    School uniforms is a great idea for public schools. At the very least, massive restrictions to certain clothes should be implemented. As a teacher, clothes or lack of, caused a ton of disruptions in the school environment. I work now where there are uniforms. Nobody cares.

    Re: Uniforms in public schools...

    In Mobile and Baldwin counties Uniforms are required. The logic behind the whole idea was that it would make it easier for school employees to spot those who don't belong. Then two years later they introduced ID badges because "People can put on a white polo and khaki pants and blend in with the students." The students all hated them, a massive majority of the schools in America don't require them. I personally think it's stupid.
    I use a lot of satire and sarcasm so keep that in mind when reading my posts.
