  • I think it would be wonderful in the middle & high. Teens are so mean. Not every girl is small or has the money to buy big named items but for personality health I think they should have casual Fridays.

  • No if I wanted my children in uniform then I would have sent them to a private school. The only reason why you see trashy teens wearing those outfits is because most of the time the parents buy them for the kids.

  • I can see both sides of this one. Honestly, it would make my son getting ready in the mornings a lot easier, lol. But, I can see the argument that it limits individuality too!

  • son had them in kinder but we moved 3mos into the year and he doesn't have them anymore. I don't care for uniforms.I don't have issues dressing them and in elementary school think they are stupid. I could see the need in higher grades.

  • A few years ago, our public schools inacted a very strict dress code and it was a concern about whether or not a shirt was "dress code approved" so yes I would have been more happy with uniforms, then I wouldn't have to worry everytime my kid went to school about whether or not the clothes fit the dress code.

  • definitely would cut down on the trashy little teenagers I see!

    but yeah, I like the idea. my kids' public school they'll go to has uniforms. They'll have different color options for their shirts but that's about all they can pick.

  • maybe.. but i don't have to worry about this cause our school district doesn't have uniforms. the county school district next to us does and most of the schools there are public and they have to wear a uniforms.
