Re: School dressing codes.

I wish that uniforms had been required when I went to high school. If the uniform looks good, then hey, why not? People moan so much about individuality and such, but...

I've been in the military before. Has anybody ever explained to you why a uniform is required for that? I'm guessing that a lot of the same benefits are (thought to be) achieved by requiring students to wear them. But maybe it's a lost cause since it's being forced on children.

In the end, I suppose the education part should be the most important aspect of school... the uniform or dress code is just the administration's attempt to keep some structure, organization, etc. Not necessary (but what's the big deal?).


So, yeah. That's just me.

Re: School dressing codes.

I've only ever had to wear a uniform for extra-curricular activities, so I wouldn't really know how Id feel about having to wear a uniform in school ALL day.

Yeah, you can't 'express your individuality' clothing-wise, but what's stopping you from doing it personality-wise?

I used to be super-opposed to uniforms, but as I grew up (see: after only 4 years out of High School), I came to the realization that my own arguments all revolved around not being able to express myself, which I felt a little silly for, because Uniforms only stop you from wearing w/e you want to on-campus.
(Well... okay... I confess, it was pictures of the Japanese school-girl uniforms that made me change my mind... >.<)
:p

In all seriousness, though, I've come to realize that while Uniforms are a big mental thing, it really shouldn't affect who you are, and that's what most of the arguments I know about focus on - the loss of expressing yourself through clothing, which seems very silly indeed.
Don't get me wrong, though; of anyone ever tried to make me wear a Uniform in my daily life - not for a job, school, or otherwise - I'd be the first to petition/take some sort of action. I rather like my 'I traded this shirt for my girlfriend (Best trade I ever made)' shirt

Re: School dressing codes.

School dress codes are a good idea (though thats not how I felt back in HS lol) you will know right when someone is an intruder and no one has to worry about any dress codes, *thumbs up for dress codes*

Re: School dressing codes.

I only ever had to wear uniforms in middle school. But I was going through my rebel phase then so I would wear other clothing on underneath and take the uniform stuff off once I was inside.

I don't really see anything wrong with them. It's just eh either way. I personally don't care.

What I didn't ever understand was why they had uniform passes. If a kid got their parent's say so(signature/whatever) then the kid could come to school in whatever they wanted. If they had the policy of uniforms, why did it not apply to EVERYONE? Otherwise, what was the point?

Re: School dressing codes.

Reason is that so no stupid children will fight over some trivial **** like clothes.

Also, I didn't have to wear school uniforms or anything in my school years.

Re: School dressing codes.

I had school uniforms until I came to the US. Then I got wear whatever the **** I felt like. Our dress code was ridiculous. So what if I wore a Dio T-shirt under the blazer? No need for detention and a call home. Jeez. I spent alot of time in detention and my dad got alot of calls home. :'(

Re: School dressing codes.

Last few years of highschool, I attended a private school, where I had to wear the school polo shirt. It was nice. I could wear whatever pants I wanted though (which I took advantage of, of course), but overall, it was kind of nice. No one got picked on for lack of style, or any other of those jugdemental tendacies that come along when one looks at another's clothing.

Re: School dressing codes.

I've been to both a school without a compulsory uniform, and two with compulsory uniform. I must say I preferred the latter when it came to figuring out what to wear. It mostly boiled down to how many layers I should wear (which usually ended up being just one). I didn't particularly like the shoes though.

EDIT: Oh, right. I should also mention that neither of the schools I went to which required a uniform required a tie. In fact, there was no tie in the uniform in the first place.

Re: School dressing codes.

The only reason our school made kids wear school uniform for couple of reasons: to look smart, to identify which students belong to our school (sometimes we get kids outside of school coming in), kids spending less time worrying what to wear at school and everyone is equal.

I hate the tie.

Re: School dressing codes.

I'm learning in a catholic school, and the question of uniforms is always an important topic.
Interesting, it's not especially the teachers who want it. Some children support the idea as well. However, they plan it not to be the kind of serious-uniform-with-tie-and-other-serious-looking-stuff, but something nice and comfortable. And not so bound, that everybody has to wear the same kind of shoes... Just something what stops some girls to dress and act like a whore.

Re: School dressing codes.

The only uniform for my school is Kaki pants and a polo. But in High-School, it's pretty much whatever you want.

Re: School dressing codes.

I've been too 5 schools w/o uniforms and 2 with.

I've never been bothered either way.

Very few people dress uniquely enough to get recognition for their clothes in non-uniform enviroment, and the recognition you do get is like "Where did you get that"? Its really not very fun to answer that question several times a week for a whole year.

I kinda like uniforms, as long as their are a wide selection of sizes so your stuff actually fits.

Also, I think ties defeat one of the most important purpose of uniforms (prevention of clothes bullying.) because some people either don't know how to tie a tie or are trying to be rebellious and don't tie it properly. IT MAKES YOU LOOK LIKE A DOUCHE******, learn how to tie it.

Anywho, I don't think uniforms serve any real purpose. they don't prevent bullying because the cliques are still there regardless of what people are wearing. Everyone will just come up with other stupid ass reasons to alienate each other. I do agree that the average teenager is about as original as an ant, but you shouldn't need everyone to look the same in order to create a sense of unity either. Plus they just look ridiculous too.

Re: School dressing codes.

I go to a co-ed catholic high school, and we have to wear uniforms like all catholic high schools in the city I live in.

(Crest blocked, faces cut for privacy reasons)

Kilts ftw.

I find it better to wear uniforms, rather then having to plan out what you're going to wear the next day. It's pretty hawt, too ;D

Re: School dressing codes.

U can't probably find a school with a dress code here in Finland. I think those kinds of things suck.

Re: School dressing codes.

Well, my main rule would be comfort. My last school had girls wear skorts, which feel like they're stabbing your bits. So, at least at my school, unifroms can be uncomfortable.

The only good uniforms are Catholic school girl uniforms.
