Do you think uniforms in schools is a good idea? The reason I made this is because in my school next year, the head of the school board office said that they were considering having uniforms for the middle schoolers.

I don't think that we should because it dosen't let you express yourself. Also, you can't even pick out your favorite clothes that you like to wear anymore.

So, what would you think if you had to wear uniforms at school? Good idea, or bad idea?

Uniforms are a good thing. A very good thing indeed.

1) They 100% eradicate bullying based on fashion.
2) You have no chance of being late by taking too long selecting your own clothes.
3) They're mighty useful for identification on school trips.
4) Not every uniform is butt-ugly.
5) Expressing yourself through clothing is not really much of an issue in schools, to be honest.

Here at Finland, we have no school uniforms for one reason; no one would use them. Surely, you'd get a punishment or two for not wearing it, but how would it stop anyone from wearing their own clothes.

So I'm against uniforms.

Agreed.

Beside, my school's uniform was simple. Black pants for males with the white polo-shirt (That has school insigna on it). And for girls...That cute skirts with the white polo-shirt ^^

I agree with CD, dispite that I hate the look. xD I'm like a women. :p J/k.. Kinda.

Well, I prefer the wear whatever I like, since I'm used to Chavs and such shouting utter crap at me.

So I agree, but I'd prefer to disagree. ._. But I actually do agree. lol

A bit offtopic: I'm still loving the Japanese Highschool uniform. The males have that slick Black suit-ish type. And the ladies get that hella sexy lil blue skirt and lovely white shirt. Which you must spill water on.. Chest area prefered. :p (They probably get to have the polo T-shirt also?)[/Thought]

i went to a private school until 5th grade (started public in 6th till now)... and yes we had to wear uniforms. it was kind of annoying seeing no individuality... at all.. but in private schools its not all just rich preps, so i guess the kids on scholarship because they can't afford it would feel better that way.

theres only one private school in my area without uniforms, but you have to be like a supergenius to get in so yeah i've never been on that side before cept in 5th grade.

The individuality/ expressing yourself means nothing. You'll have to learn to to start dressing to a dress policy in life. It's like learning to look both ways before you cross the street; it's instilled. The real world doesn't care. The bullying does not stop because of uniforms. Students and even adults find ways to pick on clothing by brand, style and etc. That's not going to stop by any means. The attention span and scores increase from uniforms have been disproven because there are plenty of other schools have do not have a dress code policy with much better scores. The differences between school identity can be understood.

Uniforms don't help but they don't hurt either.

I went to a private school from K-2, so I know the uniform deal. Ours was a white polo with the school logo, black pants, and sneakers. But on Fridays, we had to wear a long sleeved white button up shirt, black pants, and black dress shoes. And(shudder) a tacky tie.

And there was no scholarship program. We were little rich preps who listened to rock n' roll.

Then I went to a public, non-uniform school. I've been anti-rock ever since. :cool:

This uniform thing was debated so much in my school between the teachers and students. It was crazy. I understand uniforms but then they come up with new rules and enforcing smaller details like "you must have a belt", or "the socks must be above the ankle" or " you can't roll up your sleeves", then it gets annoying.

I don't think that we should because it dosen't let you express yourself. Also, you can't even pick out your favorite clothes that you like to wear anymore.

That is the biggest BS. There is no such thing as "expressing yourself" through clothes. Will it matter what clothes you wore in school when your a succesful business man or a poor hobo on the street? No.

Yeah...my school was like that. It was cagged. One day this new girl comes and say she likes rock and overnight EVERYBODY liked rock and becomes punk. Posers:susp:. But only a few where true to their word the rest, phht. The only thing that was great about our uniform was that we didn't have to wear a tie:biggrin:.

My school has uniforms, but they aren't really that bad looking. But, I perfer to wear normal clothes. The whole issue doesn't really bother me. It's just the rules about the hair, bracelets, earrings, and necklaces that do. xD

The school I went to last year had it, and I really hated it. I wanted to wear my own clothes cause I didn't feel comfortable wearing uniforms. They just let us wear whatever jacket we wanted over a polo shirt but we had to take it off in class or put it in our lockers and plus we couldn't wear jeans until the last few months of the school. That was kinda lame, but the only good thing about it was it didn't take long to get ready. But hey I just dealt with it, cause it's not the worse thing that could happen.

I personally never had problems with uniforms in my day, but that's also due to the fact that I was in a very strict schooling system back when I was little (and I was little). Even then, not worrying about what to wear for school at all was the big plus in uniforms, but it is more discouraged in the Western countries that embrace individuality than it is in the Eastern countries. In fact, a vast majority of the schools in HK, Japan, and other Asian countries have school uniforms due to a collectivist culture (that is, everyone equal, in a way).
