No. It doesn't do anything to stop bullying. Poor kids still get the hand-me-down stained pants and rich kids still get the fitted american eagle polos.

Yes, I agree with uniforms, they help identify someone - Especially if you're on a trip and a student goes missing... How will this teacher identify what the child was wearing if there isn't a uniform and there are 30-50 students in the group? So yes, for a child's safety I believe they should have uniforms right up until they leave school.

I wore uniform from kindergarten (which was okay then) to 8th grade and I personally ended up hating it because on top of the uniform policy, there was a very strict dress code (no colored shirt/tanktop under polo). The sweaters were also pretty expensive because there was only like 3 places you could get it from, and it had to be that ugly button of a woolly RED p.o.s. in a somewhat unsafe neighborhood.

Why? So the students can complain and just ignore the rule?

I think you should be allowed to wear whatever you want as long as it's decent and not disruptive.

I live in the UK and uniform is compulsory here.

I can understand the argument that wearing a uniform helps stop bullying but I don't think that's the case at all. Kids can tell whether you're a rich kid or a poor kid or what "stereotype" you are regardless of a uniform. So it doesn't really make a difference.

I like @Liddy 's comment about identification though. That is a definite pro for wearing a uniform. I used to work in a school and I think it definitely helped when going on school trips and such.

Absolutely not. Certain people look great in certain types of clothing. Besides, self-expression and being trendy are not mutually exclusive.

And like others said, it hardly helps in deterring bullying.

Yes, schools should have uniforms.
there's heaps of discrimination against overweight people so why should there be discrimination against the clothes we wear?
