|"Uniforms make for a much better learning enviornment.||Did you know that the word "gullible" isn't listed in the dictionary? noooo, not really!|
come on now, people! Am I sopoussed to understand the causes that led up to the civil better dressed in a navy blue jumper/white collared blouse than in my black flares and maroon top? And what happened to a sense of pride? Besides, I have hard evidence that this learning enviornment crap is just that--crap! I have a copy of a test I took on a free dress day that I scored a perfect 100% on!
|"Students feel more professional in uniforms, like it's time for work."||As a matter of fact, no, we don't. We feel stupid.|
|"uniforms notably reduce tardies because students don't have to worry about what to wear in the morning."||If you have had my experience, the opposite thing happens. Five minutes before you have to leave the house, you're running around screaming, "Where the !@#$#%A%^&* is my blouse?" instead of just settling for something else. And the reason is, you can't just settle for something else. Pretty lousy, huh?|
|"Some students dress so radically that a uniform is the only soloution."||First of all, the last time I checked it was a free country. Second of all, A dress code would be quite suffcient if it was enforced! Third of all, if they dress radically, then it's their problem, not mine. To tell you the truth, When I see some guy walking down the street with blue hair and more peircings than cupid, I don't usually care. I notice it, but it's not like it has any major impact on me.|
|"It gives students a sense of school spirit."||This has got to be a joke! Do you have any idea how much kids hate having to wear a uniform? Before there was a uniform, I used to tell my out-of-state friends, "Sure, I like school! It's great!" but now it's more like, "School sucks! I have to wear a uniform!"|
