You get used to the uniform, really and you're all wearing the same, which limits bullying.
If we all wore what we wanted, I think there'd be a lot of bullying and there'd be the people who would bitch about you if you wore the same thing twice, say.
My school is pretty strict on the uniform here but in a way, people still express themselves in other ways, so it's not like the uniform is just cloning you all into the same person, you still get to be who you want and there's still the chance to express yourself, through different ways.

i think dress codes are alright, as long as they aren't too strict.


i'm in a public school, and really, there's no problems with the dress code, most everyone follows it, and there's no problems.

Dress codes are fine with me but if you're going to make me wear a uniform, That's the flicking line.

Uniforms are fine by me, but as I've learned in the past one month, the problem occurs when teachers are going to be ridiculous about it.

I have been reprimanded god-knows-how-many times for not tucking in my shirt. I cuffed up my sleeves (they're short sleeves and come down to my elbow) and I got some more lectures for that. We are not allowed to keep our shirts unbuttoned past the second button. I can understand that, but they mark it down if they see you with your buttons unbuttoned.

To conclude, they expect us to walk around like puffy marshmallows with shirts tucked in and puffed out, with ridiculous belts with huge buckles, and keep our short sleeves long.

That is utterly silly.

i fucking hate my uniform... We have to wear blue polos and tan pants. Our shirts can onlyhave two or three buttons on them and no logos even if they are school logos. A black or brown belt must be on at all times. Shirt tucked in, shoes black or brown, no sneakers. Hair must be one color and can't be 'distracting'. Earrings can only be studs and can't be distracting same goes with any other jewlery we might be aloud to wear. At my school there is no room for expressing your self. The only way I can is with my supposedly offending shoelaces.

My shoelaces have pink stars and white skulls on them and they go with my black shoes. I have gotten detentions for my shoelaces.

Uniforms are bullshit...

You don't see teachers wearing uniforms, they wear pretty shocking things too but the students must get treated like everyone else when the teachers are nothing but hypocritial bastards

not exactly. dress codes can prevent kids from wearing potentially offensive stuff but a uniform restricts people to wearing particular items. Like a white shirt and black skirt, while a dress code will allow you to wear any shirt and bottom as long as if it doesn't have ,for example, a gun.
i know the gun thing was a little over the top but it was only an example.

I'm okay with dress codes for the most part. Some of them help. You wouldn't want some girl dressing slutty while you're trying to learn..it's rather annoying. Every day, a friend of mine would wear low cut shirts. My guy friends were sick of it, so they started throwing stuff down her shirt until she stopped showing her boobage.

Just some things I find silly. Like at my high school they banned hoodies/sweatshirts. That one...I didn't get.

That reminds me a lot of my school. They are quite lenient on most things, but they are really annoying for the silliest things. Like, they'll let some girls wear their skirt the lenghth of a belt, yet they give detentions for rolling up your sleeves or having your shoes untied. That is absolutely ridiculous, to me. I mean, honestly! Choose your battles! Neutral

But other than that fact, I don't mind my uniform at all. It looks better than a lot of uniforms I've seen. [although I have a problem with the fact that we aren't allowed to wear our short sleeved shirts other than in September, May and June. There are often hot days in October and April, yet we have to wear a big woolen shirt. It's torture, really. haha. But that's technical. It's not because I find the shirt ugly. It's just REALLY hot. xD]

If my school gave a shit about the actual saftey of students, they would have kept the goddamn bomb out of there back in 2000. My brother could have seriously died.

Sweatshirts were the least of their problems.

did they know the bomb was there? most likely no.
they only do the best they can to keep us safe.
i think you can deal with going without a sweatshirt until you leave school.

They could have kept the bomb out if they enforced their own rules instead of making up new, useless ones.
And I'm already done with school.
