You must be very superficial if you can only express yourself via following the latest mode of fashion. Back when I was a lad, people had personalities to make them individuals, and if the modern youth lack that, then how is wearing the latest fashion, a uniform in itself, going to make them individuals when they are anything but.


I get your point but realy its not just about clothing, its freedom of expression.


Minors are not entitled to many of the rights, especially the right to free speech, press, and assembly. So, either with or without uniform, they are still not entitled to those rights. If they were, for example, we would be hearing the students curse the teachers out, adhere to more whorish forms of fashion, &c.


Unfortunately, even if we are not "entitled", those behaviors do still occur.

Pro:
Stating simple and common facts that I usual hear:
~Morning- don't need to find any clothes but your under wear to go with your uniform.
~You don't need to wash your uniform for a month if it doesn't have any stains or stink. (quite unsanitary in my ideals)
~Students look the same.
~School haves extra pairs of clothing if you rip your crotch stitches. (HAHAHA) (debatable)
~Never runs out of stock.
~ Student focus on work than on a girls skimpy clothes (very debatable)



Con:
Stating simple and common facts that I usual hear:
~Students look the same - no indiviual thoughts on style. (debatable)
~My stupid friend says" The chick don't dig you if you're wearing the same shit all the time. Wear some G-Unit and American Eagle"(my opinion...."BULL SHIT you still can't even get a girl in our junior year of high school...") (debatable)
~School rivalary - fights? (debatable)
~Stalker knows which school you go to. (My friend said it) (debatable)
~ Seperate uniforms (School, sports, and swiming, Years(maybe) (debatable)
~Guys checking the girls under garments(if the ladies' wear skirts) (debatable)
~Cost? $$$


No effects on the following:
~discipline of students (parents job) (debatable)
~Outside Trouble - gang, robbery(shop lifting), fights, and anything that is bad (don't get smart with me people)
~Intelligence of student - student's are suppose to learn for themself. (debatable)


If I miss anything just add them cause I ain't gonna be on until a month or two. Also anything that I have stated isn't perfect, I know that I ain't all knowing about everything.

Girls look good in school uniforms. It's simple for people cause we don't have to worry about what to wear. Besides, it is what you represent.

I think uniforms are great because in class the it is funny to see the girl who has never covered her stomach sitting in front of me and on the wall I see next to her it the "dress code" that no one ever really uses. Uniforms would be amazing.

at first i hate uniforms but when i was in college, i appreciated it's real purpose.

1. you don't have to think what to wear the next day (except wash day)
2. it's for security purpose (it's easier to identify outsiders in the campus. parents would love that); however, it would also make easy for your rival schools to identify you (but on the bright side, you'll know who jumped you and payback would be easy)
3. during rainy season, school uniforms are the best

I personally like the idea of uniforms, even though I go to a public school.
The girls would probably find a way to slut-i-fy them anyway.

The school uniform when I grew up was Jeans and a T-shirt. (not really but that's what we mostly wore.). The only time I remember a dress code being enforced was one unseasonably broiling hot May when all the girls were wearing short shorts and cut off T's and Tanks. Apparently it got the faculty a little hot under the collar. The only time I WISHED we had a dress code was when 'Neon' became a fad.

That said; I was a member of the Royal Canadian Sea Cadet Corps from age 13 to 18 with a short time spent as a civilian instructor at age 19.

I also served two years in the Militia, Worked as a security guard, a Volunteer EMT, a Volunteer Fireman and am Currently a nurse.

Uniforms do have their downsides but also have their uses. If I were to fantasize about being 13-18 again and going back to school it would be a school with uniforms. (preferably a co-ed one with a secret government Giant Robot base hidden beneath that of course recruits me and a bunch of short skirted fellow students to be pilots... er... uh...NM)
