I never wore a school uniform while growing up. I live in Florida nad 90% of the schools are uniforms. I was so happy to express myself through clothes. I went through the Jordash jeans Phase, Goth phase, Madonna, Fam era, Preppy clothes with penny in the penny loafers, Th black period (still going through that) , and the 90's spandex shorts and mid drifts.
Clothes does not define us but it makes it alows us to be distinct individuals. Should we deny our children of that?

I am more a fan of a dress code, not a uniform. Why make the kids into robots that have to follow the leader??

I would LOVE my girls schools to go to uniforms. The dress code has pretty much taken all the chances for the kids to be individuals away. My oldest loves wearing the long shirts and leggings, well they have been banned, even under skirts/dresses/shirts of appropriate length. The jeans that are designed to look ripped but are not are not allowed either. If the child wears anything like that to school, they are sent to the office where the parents are called and if we cant bring a chance of clothes, the child gets in school suspension. My dd called me last year almost in tears at the thought of ISS (she is a straight A student) and all because she wore leggings under her skirt that came to just above the knee. I told her to take the leggings off and put them in her locker. Once she took them off, she was allowed to go back to class. CRAZYYY.
