Uniforms should be worn in school every day, any where.

It would be kind of cool if schools had uniform like the ones in school related anime shows.
Too bad that will never happen.

I agree with above ^, kind of depends on the school.

It depends on the school guidelines. When I was in elementary school, I had to wear (a white shirt and blue skirt) my school uniform all the time and the worst part was if you forgot to wear your uniform, you do not get chocolate milk or ice cream for lunch. That school was completely stringent.

I went to a uniformed all-girls Jr High a while back, and the uniform was really quite expensive. It was also terrible. We had two 'different' uniform days.
We had 'number one uniforms' which was a white oxford shirt, a really scratchy cardigan, a tie (in half-windsor knot), and a kilt (or blue slacks for religious purposes).

It definitely had its advantages, as I never had to think about what to wear. Except for dress down days (pay money then follow a relaxed street clothes dress code), or 'number two' days when everyone broke out their alternate uniforms. When we had people entering the school it was easy to tell who was a student and who was not which made for quick lock-downs after some students were attacked in both the neighboring school and sister school.

Disadvantage wise the gym uniform sucked, and we weren't allowed hair accessories (including plain black, green, blue, or white hard headbands, or headbands that matched our hair or school colors), colored hair elastics, earrings (unless you were more affluent -- somehow stud earrings that are just a silver ball are worse than dangling earrings that were past the shoulders when dangling earrings were out of dress code), jewelry in general.

I went to the most relaxed of the three uniformed schools in my public school system, but we had crackdowns on uniforms whenever we were meeting with the other two schools or right after them. It was close to -30F and we weren't allowed to wear sweat pants into the school.

The dress code was overall a decent thing, but I always felt like hair, makeup and some accessories wouldn't have been a big deal -- the kids from less affluent families could still be picked out by their knee highs or backpacks not being super new. I won't send my future kids to single gender schools, but I don't mind the uniforms.

Normally, I would say that it is highly unnecessary. But, looking at my military experience in retrospect, I felt that the uniform gave me a sense of unity, and belonging. You would be surprised how positive an influence that can have on people, especially on those, like myself, who don't normally feel connected to anyone, or anything, or as if belonging anywhere. It was strange, the moment I came home, and took my uniform off, I didn't really feel at home anymore, and I lost a sense of purpose.

Personally, I wouldn't have minded wearing a uniform. I went to public school, though, so I never had to. I'm not sure about mandating a uniform for the entire school, though. Especially if punishments are harsh if you don't wear it one day. That's not really fair. I mean, they're kids for Christ's sake, not army soldiers.

School uniforms always gave me that utilitarian feel that I would really rather not associate with an educational facility. Learning should be creative and fun - not strict, singular, and boring. That's the vibe that uniforms give off, though. Makes school feel more like work or a prison, not a place to grow and advance yourself.

Hell, I thought it was silly that my school didn't allow kids to wear hats indoors. I like hats.

School uniform are great because it shows that you're still a student and it is more convenient.
You don't have to take hours to pick what clothes for you would want to wear for each day.

I always thought the idea of uniforms was horrendous. I now see it isn't so bad, but I still wouldn't want to have something already picked out for me to wear every day (plus it's not that hard to just have clothes lined up the night before). Even at work I get to choose my dress clothes and if there is one thing I love doing it's looking good.

My elementary school tried to make us wear them and the parents refused. I kind of wanted to back then.

These days? I think it's better not to have them. I think individuality is important to a kid's development. Even in uniforms, kids will find a way to stand out, so I do not see the point in trying to stifle that.

Mostly good, glad I didn't have them where I live, but some of them don't look bad if they aren't overly strict about them. I've always liked ties, and its a little strange to wear one at school if its not mandatory on a uniform or something lol
