NO! My daughter wears uniforms. However it is not my child or any child in her class that is concerned about so called “named brand clothing”.

Uniforms are not cheaper alternate to “regular clothing”.

It seems that our children are being punished for the ignorance of some parents and their parents.

I think that uniforms are a great idea!!! You have few choices on what to wear in the morning, you don't have to have 50 pairs of jeans and shirts, and it saves lots of money. Plus those of you who dont have a good fashion since this is great for you!

School uniforms are not taking away how children express themselves in schools. I always thought that being an individual was based on your personality, the way you were inside, not how expensive your clothes were, or what brand they are. Even if this is the case today, in some very shallow children, school uniforms aren't taking away how you do your hair or make up. I feel that we can each be an individual even if we are wearing similiar clothing. Besides, when you buy a really expensive pair of jeans, your only buying them because your trying to fit in with everyone else who wears really expensive jeans. You think you would be greatful to have uniforms so now you dont have to try as hard - they do it for you.
You also have options with uniforms. Its not like you have one shirt and one pair of pants. You can alternate what shirts you wear, and if you arent the preppy type of girl, you can wear pants. If your that upset about not being able to wear your low cut shirts and skin tight pants anymore, i think you have bigger things to worry about than wearing the almost same thing as the girl you dont like so much.
And why is it, that we accept uniforms for sports teams, but are so reluctant when it comes to wearing one in the classroom?
Finally, your in school to learn, not to impress everyone with your expensive brand name clothes.

No. It eliminates freedom of expression.

we wear uniforms here in Australia, and generally people are happy about it (well, those i know anyway...)

yes, it kinda does eliminate any freedom of expression to a certain degree (in dress), yet at the same time it also eliminates many differences in social situations, and avoids many people being discriminated against/teased due to their socio-economic standing.

Appearance-wise, it brings everyone to the same level.

You know It is quite a difficult question to answer. On on side you have a freedom of expression, and then you have the excess of freedom of expression. Such as our High School is very leanent on our dress code enforcement. Yesterday I saw a guy wearing a swastika on his sleeve. It really seems that the desicsion is up to the parents and the school faculty. Me personally, I would not mind the uniform policy, but I do like to have my own style. Yet it's a luxury I would surely give up to see racial and negative influences decline.
