    School uniforms are just a symbolic outward representation of the internal conformity and regimentation the education system strives to create in each generation. It shows how the system views and treats us, i.e. not as individuals but as a homogenous mass of nondistinct cattle for the slaughter.

    In my personal opinion, school uniforms are unnecessary. They dull down a childs creativity I think.
    However, if schools really do insist on making each and every kid look exactly the same, then they should at least let them be creative about their uniforms. Keep to dress code, but allow them to be individual in their own way.
    For example. When I was at school, I wore a black waistcoat with my uniform and pinned different badges onto it and I also wore black converse on my feet.

    Like I said. If they really have to wear uniforms, at least let them be individual about it.

    I believe in School Uniforms, it takes away the fashion parade distraction of what to wear for a start and it identifies the wearer by school so it enforces a code of conduct.

    It has to be a real uniform though. The High School I went to had a really lame one. Grey pants or jeans(!) of any type as long as they were grey(ish) (this was in the 80's during the trend of Acid wash jeans, fawn shirt, and blue or black jacket. And we could wear runner instead of proper shoes. A complete joke and a waste of time.
    I grew up on a belief of honour, courage and the old world values. The world isn't about that anymore, preferring to die a slow death of fast food and cheap thrills.

    I had to wear a uniform, a uniform look smart and kids don't get bullied for what they are wearing since everyone wears the same clothes.

    W00t???????? Perhaps you just attended a boring school

    That's crazy talk! For example, girls in my school (bless them) never failed to find creative ways to alter the length of their skirts (shorter than regulation in other words), tighten things up in the right places, make a jersey look sexy! The zenith of creativity!

    We invented highly efficient ways of transforming from "uniform" to "uniform which cannot be identified" in 30 secs so we could walk down the street, smoke & carry on like hooligans so that passers-by couldn't positively identify us and report us to the school!

    Uniforms don't "inhibit creativity". I fail to see what's creative about blowing the parents' money on "labels" for silly classroom dressing up competitions & one-upmanship.

    I’ve taught in schools with and without uniforms and I prefer the uniforms. I wish we could have a more conservative rule with hair, jewellery, etc too.

    Since parents don’t do much to discipline kids, the uniform is where it starts. From there it will spread to ethics, hygiene, etc. Because uniforms can be passed on to others, it will be cheaper in the end. Kids have enough private time to do their fashion thing.

    Kids are cruel and they do that to others who don’t have the latest brand clothes/jewels, etc and that is where the trouble starts.

    I’ve taught in a Boys School too and that was perhaps the best school that I’ve ever taught in. The moment the boys have girls to impress, things get out of hand. Girls also seem to think that they are better than boys too which can develop further problems.

    I believe it should be up to the institution. I generally think school uniforms are a good idea, much like work uniforms. They can be a means to teach children certain values like discipline, proper grooming and care, consistency, perseverance, and so on.

    A prep school, boarding academy look is best done casually and not enforced. The only uniforms I'd care to wear would be for ROTC or sports teams.

    It goes against my principles to force someone to adopt a certain policy. It should be up to the schools to decide, IMO and the requirements should be transparent for students who wish to enroll.

    Children need to learn to dress properly for the occasion. I do not wear jeans and t-shirt to work if I am to meet with customers and suppliers. Nor should they.
