My school has uniform rules but they are vague as hell. You can wear a skirt as short as you like as long as it's black. O_o.

I usually don't mind uniforms. But my last public school, they wouldn't let you enter the school unless your shirt was tucked in. And the girls couldn't wear shorts or skirts, they had to wear dark navy blue pants, and do you know how hot they get in California? Your shirt HAD to be white, and your pants/shorts HAD to be navy blue. You couldn't wear any hat, and your shoes had to be dark blue or white. It was ridiculous. If your shoes were a different color, they'd send you home to change them. =/

A year or so ago there was a thing in California where a principal said the girls couldn't wear thongs to a dance, so she took all the girls aside before they went in and checked. Except for the larger girls because she said they don't wear thongs.

i dont like the idea of uniforms, but you shouldnt be allowed to wear just anything.
we have dress codes at our school, but sometimes the teachers or principles go overboard on one aspect thats completly pointless.
like at our school, we're not supposed to wear dickies because they're "gang related" but all these preppy little bleepity bleeps (my july goal is to cut back on swearing... lol) are wearing two-inch long skirts and nothing is done about it? wtf?
in my opinion, dress codes dont work.

Kids in our school weren't allowed to have chain wallets. >.<

But, of course, anyone with the right last name could wear whatever the fuck they wanted.

I think we should be able to wear what ever you want, as long as it's appropriate. Like, for girls, it's obviously not appropriate to have major cleavage showing.

My teacher told me I wasn't old enough to have and/or form an opinion about dress code. I tried the free speech move on them, but they told me I wasn't granted that right. Think

People should wear whatever they want, because to me, uniqueness is a must. It makes me sick thinking that everyone looks almost alike. Sickening. In our school, we don't have to wear uniforms, but we can't wear like tube tops and skirts that are so short your ass hangs out. I think a dress code should go like this:

You can wear whatever you want, as long as it's not too revealing and doesn't show parts that people don't need to see.

Done!

Well how dare that teacher tell you that! How can't you be old enough to have an opinion about dress code? I would have set them on fire.

Fortunetly in our school we don't have any rules or codes of what we need/can wear. If you are wearing a way to short skirt or something, a teacher will say to you you better come more normal the next day, that's all. Or not even that. But normally no one cares...Everyone'll just look you strange.
I like uniforms sometimes. I'm playing in an orchestra and we have uniforms. I don't like them that much, but I can't do nothing. That's how it is now, and that's how it was in the past 100 years. It makes you part of something.
But I like to be free. So I wear lots of ear ring and neckacles (sp? ) and other things. No one will never make me put them off.

i have to admit thinking about it i do like the ideaq of uniform but however they shouldnt be so strick about it and force it at people, and uniforms should be comfortable and light. i dont like to see girls wearing skirts up to they're arm pits going to school, that should be stopped.

my teachers were like that. they told us 'you have a right to an opinion, and you have a right to complain and express your opinion about stuff' then when they tried to ban skirts at my old school, some girls drew up a petition, and were given detention and told they had no right to argue. and one of the teachers signed it and nearly lost her fucking JOB!

That is my school. In the end they didnt ban the skirts, but only because the parents complained and it got on the news so it was to big.
btw, im anti-christ of suburbia's sister. i've left that school forever!
for anyone that lives in dorset, england, it was Broadstone Middle School. just incase you saw it on the news.

they suck and we all know that, but in a way you have to admit they are (sometimes) doing it for a good reason, maybe they are doing it so there isn't as much teasing for people who can't afford designer clothes, but they don't know it dosn't just exist at school. Other than that they may be trying to make a good name for themselves showing that there students are smart and don't full around, always for few thats not the case.

uniforms do have there benefits, but i don't think it has any effect on the education of the students overall. i had no uniform from prep to 7, uniform from yr7-10 and no uniform in yr11 and 12.

most uniforms i see look quite uncomfortable for the students to wear.

i think it would be better if casual wear was the exceptable dress code as far as i can see if a student is comfortable than they are more likely to enjot being at school and therefore get a better education.

some say that by not having a uniform, there are too many stereotypical groups and labelling occuring based on the way that people dress, well that is still going to happen if they all dress the same they can't supress the persons real self through a uniform.

I think school uniforms are a good idea, as people can tell what school you go to, and students [they might not anyway] but they might not feel so pressured to be wearing new clothes every day/week whatnot, like at my school year 11 [what i'm at now] wear different to the rest of the school, it is still a uniform, and still looks smart, despite this i wouldn't mind wearing my own clothes, but if i did i myself would possibly feel pressure to not wear the same thing all the time
