“The goal is that kids come to school dressed appropriately and we don't have to be calling parents.”
GALION -- When the alarm clocks of hundreds of Galion City Schools students went off this week, there was no indecision about what to wear to school. via News Journal

I agree to some extent. I hate when the pants hang down like theres a big poop in them, but to make parents go out of the way, and to purchase things from specific places, and to have certain things is stupid. If they make us have to go out of our way and hunt these things down, pay more for them, they should wear them too.

Most parents do not have to go out of their way to purchase anything. The uniforms that the schools are requiring the students to wear can be fournd at most stores like Wal Mart,
Target and Meijer. They have everything you need, and the prices are no more(actually less than) what they would pay for jeans and such. And think about it. You would really only have to buy about 3 pairs of pants and 3 shirts. Just wash and rewear them. No one will EVER know that you are wearing the same pants on Wednesday that you wore on Monday!!! Now if you had to buy school clothes that weren't "uniforms" you have to buy so much more. And a pair of jeans cost me much more than a pair of pants required by the school. Because for my kids to show their "individuality" they can't just be any old pair of jeans. They have to be "IN STYLE"!!!
Now as far as the teachers are concerned, I agree that they should be subject to uniforms as well.
In the words of Harumph, "What's good for the goose is good for the gander"!

Well i been on the phone with everyone from the superintendent (who wasn't in her office, wonder why) to the principle who took the blunt end of my complaint. I do not agree with this policy and i was told that if my child doesn't conform then the will not educate him. The law states we had to be notified of this 6 moths prior and i did not receive any notice. Filled out 2 applications after my phone calls. one was for Bucyrus school enrollment and the other was application for home school. Sad that i have to find other avenues of learning for my child because of a dress code.
I can also see where some parents are saying about some of the attire they see the youth of today wear. that's on the parents for allowing it and the school for not sending them home because of it. But to make others who dress their children in appropriate attire pay for those few that don't is BS.I didn't serve my country for 20 years to see my children's freedoms taken away like this. Off to call the local news and a lawyer next.

Your children's freedom? I went to Galion high school my sophomore year when uniforms were first being used. It was so much easier. Pick up a shirt, pants, belt, ect. It was easy. And it did deflect attention from the "higher class students" whose parents spoiled them to no end. It was nice. Uncomfortable though? No, they weren't uncomfortable. I still wore my uniform clothes outside of school because of how comfortable they were. Don't complain about your kids not being able to express themselves. Be glad they're not dressing like sluts and gang bangers. I wouldn't change the dress code and I lived it. I turned out just fine, your kids will also I promise.

What's annoying is they think that uniforms will put our appearances on the same level. But people still judge because of features. Such as weight, facial features and many othe things. Uniforms do help. And they are easier to wear. Kids don't have to go through finding clothes for the next day because they're already picked out. I'm not a big fan of the uniforms, but I do appreciate them trying. And all of you complaining about the uniforms can shush because at least we're not going around wearing slut shorts and a tank top up to your belly button.

You went to St. Pete's and so you should know the correct term is 'kudos', not 'koodos', as any prep school grad would know.
