The public "schools" are nothing but social clubs ran by neo-fascists. This is a very good example of that fact.

I think that all public schools should switch to the "Uniform System". It would help solve alot of social issues. I remember being judged by the clothes I wore to school, while people who could afford designer clothes were automatically popular. School popularity doesnt matter in real life, so do away with the segregation of students by income. Let them have the same everything while they are at school, so maybe some really nice people can make friends even though they are at the top of the "Financial Food Chain".

i dont think kids should have to go into uniforms just bc they want to show off there selves...who cares if a kid in school is richer life is and no matter what people will talk about you...i moved to a different state and still people from my home town talk about me and i am not even there but i dont care...i have learned that petty crap like that isnt worth getting all upset over life is to short to worry about it
