I was not an attractive child. When I didn't use my Girl Scouts uniform as a uniform, I used it as a tent.

The issue of dress is very important to many students. School uniforms ease the issue of competition among students. School uniforms should be relatively inexpensive and allow a certain degree of choice for the students. This has the added benefit of giving students a larger budget for their wardrobe outside of school.

School uniforms provide the foundation for discipline in school. Like putting on a suit prepares executives for a day in the boardroom, putting on a uniform prepares students for a day in the classroom. It immediately shifts their focus to learning and away from other distractions that often prevent students from performing to the best of their abilities.

Students are already placed in a system where their rights to choose what they learn, use the bathroom and everything in between are not honored. The one thing they are able to choose is their own wardrobe, yet some schools would have that decision taken away from children and teens as well.

School uniforms break down the barriers between social and economic classes. This, in turn, results in a more equal learning environment. Gang signs, ill-fitting clothing and distracting styles are non-existent and a greater focus on learning is had when school uniforms are used. In reality, uniform usage should be increased into public schools across the country.

I support uniforms. They should be implemented nationwide.

I wore a uniform all my school life and I was OK. YES for me.
