^^ lol, but yeah. Uniforms just pretty much cover everything. And really, aren't harming anyone's identity.
School could probably focus more on education if more of them enforced uniforms, because I know kids are alway getting sent to the office for dressing out of conduct. Or some kids are trying to pettition a particular regulation. And if there were uniforms, that would be as big a deal.

I like the idea of school uniforms because, as the previous poster ( Squid.) pointed out, it helps to focus more on education.. the reason why schools exist in the first place. However, I do not really enjoy the idea of dress-codes in the work area (with a few specific exceptions) nor "formal" clothing. The concept of it is sort of outdated, imo. I think that the work and communication is done by the person, not by their shoes or clothing but I suppose it would be better if the clothes were clean and if it wouldn't make others visually uncomfortable (as in men having to see women in very revealing clothing in a work area when they are trying to focus on other things).

Idk I think its alright that people wear uniforms for work, so people can tell who to ask yknow Dno
But like, a polo shirt would be enough imo, safety shoes/hard hats make sense, but not like special trousers and hats and stuff idk

As for school uniforms, I guess my background makes a big difference. In my country, not a lot of people are actually poor, so the not being able to afford clothes-thing wouldn't be too much of an issue here, which is Why I think a simple dresscode would suffice, like skirts have to be a certain length, boys have to pull up their pants, no cleavage, stuff like that. That's what We had at my school, I don't see how shoes, piercings or a certain hair colour could be offensive or disturbing Dno

Yeah and like socks? When my sister worked at McDonald's, she was only allowed to wear black socks with shoes she had to purchase specifically through them, and wear the pants and shirts they gave them Cheese

I hate the idea of dress codes. I think people should be able to choose what they wear, no matter the age. They need to be able to express themselves and show their individuality. As far as bullying, bullying occurs all the time, no matter the circumstance, if they're not going to make fun of someone's clothes then they'll find something else to pick on them for. I don't think we should take someone's freedom of expression away, unless it's an obvious distraction (etc. if a shirt has a racist symbol on it or if it expresses hate towards someone or a group of people, then of course they shouldn't be tolerated.)

Okay so I have been through wearing uniforms in my school for the last three years and honestly I have to say that they suck. I believe that people should have the freedom to express themselves. Or else everyone will look the same. First impressions mean alot.

I don't know where you're from but McDonalds is strict over there! I work part-time in a McDonalds and the dress code is pretty easy. They gave us trousers and t-shirts. The only rule is you have to wear shoes with some kind of grip because otherwise you go flying.

Shows how different countries are so different I guess.

I think people should enforce the dress code but for school sometimes it can get a bit strict, especially since summers are warm. Thank God school's out now =)

^Yeah, like most schools have rules that girls shorts must be no shorter than mid-thigh or whatever? I don't have a problem with that, but it's a bit unrealistic given the current (and for the past decade) short-shorts trend. Personally, I would love to have shorts that stop at my mid thigh, but frankly, girls shorts just aren't made that long! Believe me, I've looked. It's either super short lowrise booty shorts or full-on bermudas.

In my school, you don't have to wear a uniform. I feel like I don't need one but, I have been made fun of by the teachers and some pupils (I don't get along with them) but that's mainly because "ohhhhh mötley crüe iz lyk satans music Surprised".

This is off topic but I also read The Dirt by Mötley Crüe, and my teacher said "I think you should read something else than that, it's not appropriate". I READ AND WEAR WHATEVER THE FUCK I WANT BITCH. All but one teacher said the same. So maybe they will have uniforms next year, idk.

My suburb is still scared of stuff like Mötley and even Green Day. Cheese Like, WUT?

Your out of school for one day and they come up with new rules!

Now in my school if you come to school in trainers they confiscate your trainers untill the end of the day give you these pathetic, retarded plimsoles and then at the end of the day they make you disinfect them or you dont get your shoes back. They took a pair of shoes off me that cost £45 even though they were supposed to be £70 and then they came back rotten, even though they had been "sitting in a box all day"

BOXES DO NOT MAKE THINGS FILTHY!

dude, I'm sorry.

But I think you should be able to wear ANYTHING you want... I mean, there has to be some rules, or some people I know would probably come to school shirtles or in a corsette. Granted not that. But I mean , I got in trouble yesterday for wearing a American Idiot shirt and a guitar pick on a chain around my neck. So, I mean, I think we should be at least able to wear band tees, after all, I really think that's prejudice because some girl went to school in a Justin Beiber shirt and didn't get in trouble...
