The problem is that not enough parents think it's stupid, and of that number, not enough parents are willing to speak up.

There's a difference between a dress code and a uniform requirement. For instance, a good dress code would forbid any manner of dress or hair style that distracts from the education experience.

Schoolkids do NOT have a "right of free expression", and not enough kids & their parents understand this. They're in school to learn, and that's it.

There's a difference between a dress code and a uniform requirement. A uniform requirement mandates that students wear clothing of approved colors, designs, material, etc. That's stupid.

That means that parents have to spend more money on clothing that meets the uniform requirement. This clothing can be hard to find, and often costs more than "regular" clothes.

I fail to see how schools who couldn't enforce a dress code will be able to enforce a uniform requirement.

My kids are grown now. If my kids were still in school, They would have clean and non-distracting clothes and hair. I would support them fully if they refused to abide by a uniform requirement. I would be one of the parents fighting the requirement.

Schools are, for the most part, incompetent in the areas of education and classroom discipline. If my kids were young today, I'd probably home-school them.

there is nothing wrong with a "dress code". going to school clean - with pants pulled up - midriffs covered - hair combed and shoes that cover your feed (not slippers or flip-flops). that is just all common sense.

The REAL problem is some parents are so stupid and uncaring that they allow their children to go to school without supervising their appearance or teaching them self respect.

Dress codes take away a childs individuality. However, within reason. Like Home sweet home says. But let the kids be who they want to be instead of someone else makeing them wear a uniform. Which in turn makes them hate school and rebell!
