hey a couple of weeks ago i had to write an essay on the dress codes in schools and i was just thinking about what you guys would say about it. Do you think everyone should wear uniforms or should they be able to wear whatever they want?

No, they shouldn't be allowed to wear whatever they want, in my opinion. People can wear some pretty shocking things.

I don't like the idea of uniforms, but there should be some kind of limit on what you can wear.

yeah, not whatever you want so no EXTREME short skirts or anything , but enough to show personality and individuality if you get my point

I don't wear uniform any more, but now I don't I miss it ._. everyone's the same in uniform so no one gets picked on for dressing differently and it means you never have to think about what you're going to wear for a day.

Uniforms are stupid. The stop someone form being an individual.

Individuality can be expressed in so many other ways, not just clothing.

If you don't like dress codes then get opted out. Otherwise, have fun tucking in your shirts.

I have a uniform.

Yes, it does piss me off sometimes.

But think about it. If we didn't have uniform those he couldnt afford the cool clothes would be targetted and bullied more so by the people who can afford the cool clothes.

There is some method to this madness

Uniforms have pros and cons. But in my school the uniform is so strict its just plain stupid. I think uniforms should just be like a shirt, blazer, skirt and trousers in whatever colors the school picks but everything else you wear can show your "individuality".

I think that school uniform is a good idea because it means you don't have to choose what you're going to wear everyday. It also makes everyone equal because the poorer people don't have to worry about not being able to afford the latest "cool" clothes.
I think that more schools should allow accessories like belts or jewellry just to be able to show some individuality between people.
But overall I think uniform is better than no uniform.

At my school you do have to wear uniforms. If you go to a school that does wear uniforms you aren't that opposed to it because you can see level with the reasoning. Whereas, if you have been to a school where there has been no uniform requirements and then move to a school where there is one of course there will be reason for debate. At my school there are free dress days most of which are used for fundraising (you pay a gold coin to wear free dress) and that seems to be fairly popular. There are some limits regarding the uniform like you have to wear your hat at the shops which pretty much no one follows, also to not wear your socks folded properly and hair accessories etc that are a bit farfetched but you get back what you put in by wearing the right uniform.

At my school we have to wear daffodill yellow blouses, navy jumpers, black trousers, navy blazers, and black or brown shoes.

The problem i have with our uniform is it's so unpractical. Our shirts are so bright that in the summer tons of little bugs come and sit on our shirts because they think we're flowers. The trousers have to be waist high, no flares (i dont actually wear ones like that but they're starting to check up on it more now.) The shoe rule is annoying because my friend's mum brought her and her twin sister some black trainers to wear to school. They have both now got a letter home saying they need to buy new shoes for school. Her mum is refusing to buy some though because she's a single mum and she's got three kids, she brought those shoes for school, she polishes them for school, they dont wear them anywhere else other than at school, and they want her to spend out a whole load of money on another pair of shoes.

I think that if you have to wear a uniform you should be allowed to customize to a certain extent.

Also, if a boy wears a hat to school, it's seen as an item of clothing to keep his head warm. If a girl wears a hat to school, on the other hand, it's seen as a fashion accessory.

i dont think that you shoudl wear what you want in school, because if you went to school wearing the best most expensive pair of trainers and for example they got stolen, there would be an outcry, your parents would be pissed of and the school would have to deal with it, there will also be a bigger divide between the well of children and the not so well of children, at the moment kids at least look all the same and it should stay that way.

my kids have a great uniform, a polo shirt, black trousers, black shoes, and a sweater if they want to wear it. The only thing that my daughter doesnt like is the fact that her hair has to be all one colour.

I think there should be just one item of clothing for uniform. Like.. a jumper with the school's logo or something. Sometimes, I think the school's just being slightly ridiculous... saying you can't dye your hair any unnatural/extreme colours. Why not?

-Because it doesn't look smart. So what? Why do we have to look smart for school? School's for learning.
-Because you might get teased. If someone decides to risk it... why not let them?
