Do your kids wear school uniforms?

 Those that are old enough that is. :) Do you like them? I always did because it there were no teenage girl fights over what to wear and they didn't ruin their regular clothes. I'm looking forward to Derek being in a uniform. I think I'm going to buy about 182 pairs of socks though, one for each day of school jk.

 Public schools here wear uniforms. We started at our school as a way to combat bullying. My big kids' high school pushed it through rights after Columbine.

our private schools do but public no...I think they should ware them though... I think from a self esteam point of view... i mean a child who's family cannot afford the most expensive clothes will feel more equal... and it could keep some girls looking like hoochie mommas... the shorts the most... and the boys pants below the butt....really???.. good idea!!

My oldest will start wearing one since she is now in Kindergarten at the private school which her and Cece will go to (Pre-K and preschool doesn't have to wear uniforms there).  I like it, but then again, I grew up with a uniform too though.  Our publics schools don't have a uniform though.

I homeschool, but I love the idea of uniforms. I wore them growing up...

Lilly has worn one for the past 2 years, but she is in Private Christian School... the public schools do have a strict dress code which is pretty much a uniform. 

Lilly's current school is a little more lax as it is a pretty strict dress code and only a uniform on Chapel days ( Wednesday).. the dress code is as follows: Blue, black or khaki pants/skirts/shorts... Stripes/plaid or solid shirts- no spaghetti straps/tanks/ no graphics at tights, it has to be hose or socks. Black belt if there is a belt loop on the pants/shorts/skirts..

Uniform days- Chapel shirt and Khaki pants/skirt/shorts

I LOVE it. Karli will be allowed to wear jeans/jean shorts/skirts until she is in 1st grade and then she will have the same restrictions as Lilly in regards to clothing.

My DD attended a Catholic school from K-2 and wore a uniform.  She is now at a Christian school which does not have uniforms but has a dress code.  The public schools in our area don't wear uniforms and from what I see of the kids on their way to school, they don't have a dress code either.

I totally loved uniforms.  The girls could wear a skirt, jumper, or pants with a white shirt and red sweater.  I laid all her clothes out on the guest bed and she chose what she wanted each morning.  Super easy.  Loved it!!

Not here, only a few of the private schools have uniforms. Most have the same regulations as the public schools.

Nope. I haven't heard any talk of instituting uniforms at our public schools, either.

You know if you buy 182 pairs of socks they all have to be the same color, right? Otherwise you'll just end up with mismatched pairs... :)
