RE: Do you oppose or support school uniforms?
I support its use, I didn't mind wearing them at all. As an anecdote, the military government of the 70's here instituted an unique school uniform for every school in the country (both public and private), and there was nothing that hurt the pride of the high class schools more than that (using the same uniform as the rest of the country). Expensive private schools (made up mostly by European-descended youth, obviously) hated it and made fun of it, whereas the poor schools had more important things to think about. The law was eventually dismantled.

I support school uniforms.

I didn't wear a school uniform, but I wanted to. While I don't think that uniforms will completely eliminate competition or lessen the value of appearances, a uniform policy might curb excessive concentration on the exterior. Cliques are often formed on the basis of fashion, and there is often a lot of competition to be the best dressed, which can be distracting to children.

I'd ban mobile phones in elementary schools too, as well as some other things which show somebody's (parents) wealth. School uniforms need not to be skirts and shirts (or anything similar), but something that simply won't divide the children based on brands they wear, a plain jacket and t-shirt with school logo, normal pants and some regular shoes and that's it.

Snap, we had very little money when I was grownig up, and I certainly did NOT have neough clothes to wear different ones every day, which is what no uniform would have meant. Uniform portects those who can't afford to keep up with the neighbours, we had a blazer tie etc, and other than teaching me to tie a tie (which actually has come in handy many times as my male friends CAN'T!) I can't see the point in that

As a little boy I found my uniform similar to military uniform and liked it; boys like such stuff.

Uniform helps to build discipline, that is not a bad thing at school.

Teachers should wear uniform as well, it's wrong if they make children wear uniform while being dressed casually.

RE: Do you oppose or support school uniforms?
I do support them. They eliminate the constant concerns most children and young adults nourish for their appearance, enabling them to focus on more pressing matters.
They neutralise social differences in the classroom as well, which I deem as positive, as I'd rather see a society where higher status is achieved through real life abilities and merits rather than ones family backround per se.

I wore my own school uniform back then. Black leather, flight jackets, Dr. Martens boots. It also prevented bullying effectively. ;)

I find a school uniform a very good idea because they prevent students from bullying others out of a "Branding delusion".
