I didn't have to wear them, but I *fully* support the concept of school uniforms.

RE: Do you oppose or support school uniforms?
I was in a Roman Catholic elementary school system right around the time that the Vatican II Council changed everything in terms of Roman Catholic schools where I lived. Up until grade 2, we wore school uniforms as mandatory by the Roman Catholic school board. I remember them vividly enough: a crisp white blouse and a--most unfortunately polyester--navy tunic dress. (A couple of years prior to this, they had been made out of cotton of course). One thing for sure, the Roman Catholic kids could be spotted from a mile away where I lived. Big Grin But then of course, by grade 3, the dress code became pedestrian. And that's when one realised just where on the scale of the realtively loose at the time class system hit both parents and kids in the face. Both mymy and Heretik's posts are so bang on in that regard.

I do support school uniforms, if not for the mere ease of back-to-school shopping for the parents and for issues of some kind of affordability of clothing, but probably more so for the great equalizer it can be. Kids can just be kids and concentrate on their learning is how I figure it would be most be beneficial. Kids have plenty of time later on to rebel against the wearing of uniforms and marking out their individuality by the not wearing of the tie or the rolling up of the sleeves of the blouse. ;) Besides to me there's nothing more refreshing than seeing older kids with a bit of a spark of rebelliousness who choose to wear their ties crookedly or not button up that top button. ;) Big Grin

I mostly support them. School uniforms are a way of creating a military-style sense of unity, and that's a good thing.

Okay, cool. Smile

Important: since the options have changed, I reset the poll. Please vote again.

Um.. when you changed the poll my vote changed to something that's totally not the case. >_>

I reset all votes to zero. Is it not allowing you to vote again?

I like to look at the human self-model as a neurocomputational weapon, a certain data structure that the brain can activate from time to time.

No, it says I voted for "Yea (I did not/do not have to wear them myself)*" But it should be the same parentheses with "nay"

Can you remove your vote?

(Please bear with me, the poll system is a little different to what I'm used to, and this is the first one I've done)

RE: Do you oppose or support school uniforms?
I generally agree with Aemma. Kids today tend to be very concerned about their attire. And surely school uniforms are cheaper than having to buy your children branded clothes.
