    Uniforms in Schools: Yes or No?

    Despite People saying that Uniforms are a Socialist Thing, we still wear Uniforms sometimes in Democratic Societies. At Work for Example. In Schools however, in my Country the use of Uniforms has been disappearing after the Communist Regime fell. The bad Side is that some Students wear very provocative clothes which in my Opinion are inappropriate for wearing at Studies. There are some School Policies on what isn't allowed to be worn but usually they are always broken and Students find Loopholes in them. Would wearing Uniforms in Schools be the Solution? Are you pro or against wearing Uniforms in Schools?

    I went to Catholic school so I wore a uniform my entire schooling. I can't really think of any cons except for by the time I was in high school some girls realized the appeal that the uniforms had to a certain male species and sometimes tried to flaunt it. Other than that I can only see positives

    There are major advantages of uniform. It stops parents being pressurised into buying the latest fashions for their children, and also sets (hopefully) a higher dress standard than without.

    i never had it on school and i am happy with that, but there were also alot of problems because of different clothing styles like i was the first rocker/metalhead on school and well alot of people disliked my clothes and because of that also had alot of fights on school.
    so for freedom to choose what you want i voted no but in some cases it can be good to just do it so people cant have fights arguments about how you look like.

    I'd say yes. In my country children (as young as 12, 13) are wearing some pretty provocative clothes and perhaps a school uniform could put a stop to it. It also might stop parents being pressurised into buying the latest fashion for their kids "because all of the class is wearing it". Personally I like the Japanese schooluniforms for both boys and girls (allthough the skirt should be slightly longer or girls should be allowed to wear trousers like the boys). It needs to be not just neat but also aestetically pleasing. This style might also force the government to spend more on psychical exercise for our youngfolk

    They're a good idea, promoting codes of dress and solidarity.

    Yes but the uniforms would have to be politically correct. Baggy pants, underwear hanging out and hats backward.

    No, I believe schools and/or governments should specifically proscribe provocative clothing, as opposed to eliminating choice in the matter entirely.

    What she said except switch the pros and cons



    Seriously, let kids be kids and wear what they want, if you want to bad things like shirts with sexual/alcohol/tobacco/drugs imagery then just do that. If parents don't want their kids wearing certain things or don't want to waste money on buying expensive brands/fashions, then they will actually have to do their job as parents and tell their kids "no" instead of relying on the state to do it for them.

    I vote Yes for one reason and one reason alone:

    I went to a public school with no dress code and my siblings go to a fancy private school without dress code.

    In both occasions, more so in the 'prestigeous private school', children learn to compete in terms of attire and money from a very young age, and they become fashion victims.
    It is also very insulting to see kids/adolescents going to school dressed in a sexually provocative manner or wearing extremely expensive designer clothes.
