Did you have to wear uniforms in school?

I only wore a uniform in NJROTC. We were made fun of regularly by the "cool kids". Whatever. They were the ones crying when we went on black hawk helicopters and aircraft carriers, heh.

  • Every day from 1st grade until I graduated high school. I went to Catholic school...plaid skirts/jumpers, white blouses, knee socks...the whole shebang.
    It never bothered me. I never had to worry about what I was wearing to school when I woke up.

  • No we didnt and im very thankful for it, but in my last year of high school we were aloud to wear a stitch of red or blue because of gang affiliation, I once got in trouble for wearing a salmon colored shirt that said roxy on it lol I thought that was ridiculous

  • No but it would have been good---then there would be no competition to wear the most expensive and classiest clothes. Ugh. I went to a school with mostly wealthy families - girls who wore cashmere sweaters,etc. and I came from a not so wealthy (Make that almost poor) home and wore Orlon sweaters. LOL. We couldn't afford much. So, a uniform would have solved that problem.
    In the 1950's there weren't any gangs or gang colors,thank goodness. That must be really hard to deal with.

  • I wish. It would have been easier to get dressed in the mornings. Well, we did have our marching band uniforms, but uh, those were only for performances, thankfully.
