I personally don't see the point in uniforms.
If they aren't required to wear a certain shoe or bring in a certain books bag then there are people out there that will get the name brad shoes so there is still something to pick on about. If in my opinion kids here are meaner then when i was in school if your hair is a little messy then they call you names and pick on you about that. So uniforms doesn't stop the picking it just stops it about what pants and shirts the kids wear. Kids now will pick on you for they way you talk, your eye color, ect. So really what is the main point to uniform other than making the parents spend more money on cloths they only wear for 6-7 hours a day??
