  • i think all schools should have uniforms because some parents can't afford the "name brand" clothes and the kids get picked on b/c of it

  • I am not opposed. But I imagine middle school and high school students are fighting it. :)

  • I had to wear them in private school and HATED them.
    I have no prob with a "dress code" the prevents trashy wear, but toher than that kids should be able to wear regualr clothes to school, and we shouldnt have to pay for uniforms that neither us or our kids like

  • josie - if sost is an issue for parnets then uniforms only makes if wosre, they are not cheap!! And I can not afford extravagant things, being a single mom, but I can get NIKE t-shirts for my son at TJ MAX for $4, even walmart cant beat that. It all depends on how and where you shop.

  • We haven't traditionally had them, and they're associated with poor, inner-city schools.
