Obviously, there are good things about a uniform, such as control over indecent attire & prevention of gang colors.

I spent 12 years in a school uniform. I hated it, of course. The uniform removes all individuality & self-esteem, which can be damaging, also.

I think we come back to private school versus the public school. Clothing choices and control, or lack-of, can be accommodated by your choice of schools.

Public schools = tax payer money. If tax payers vote for uniforms, then yes, otherwise, no.

I would have embraced the idea if we had school uniforms when my kids were in school. I had to work two jobs to keep them in the current style. It would have been more economical by far, than trying to keep up. I was a single mom, and I was trying to make it up to them for a lot of things.
