School uniforms have been at Spratley Middle School the whole time I have attended it. I think we should end using the uniforms. We have to buy our own uniforms at the school I attend and some people cant afford them. Some families are struggling enough trying to just buy casual wear for their children. Other kids are being picked on about their uniforms.How they have to wear it everyday, how its too small/too big.We have to tuck in our shirts wear our clothes tight, and some people arent comfortable like that. So please sign this and stop the uniforms!

    School uniforms take away individuality.

    When the clothing rules are broken, even at the slightest, kids get sent to the office and aren't allowed to learn.

    Some schools tweek the uniforms over voicemail and some of the students aren't aware. For example I wasn't aware that we couldn't wear spirit wear on Fridays anymore and was called to the office. If they are going to change anything they need to ask the teachers to inform all of their students and they need to announce it for at least 2 to 3 days for absent students. Do not depend on technology.

    There is no pride in wearing uniforms at school so I don't know where this type of thinking comes from. This isn't the uniformed services. We don't have to earn the privilege to wear our uniform and no body will get in trouble for wearing another schools uniform. Schools from where I'm currently residing have the same uniform options so you won't be able to tell which school someone comes from anyway.

    There is no freedom in being told what to wear.

    Kids will find a way to bully each other no matter what . It could be their facial features, the way they talk, their home life situations, gossip, etc.

    Uniforms are an unnecessary expense coming out of our parents pockets. They have to buy regular clothes and school uniforms. This doesn't help the families with financial struggles. They have to wear used uniforms sometimes and if people notice that, they could get picked on for having a "grungy" uniform or not being clean.

    When kids are learning they should be comfortable so that they can focus and the people incharge know this. That is why my school lets us wear what we want for the end of course testing. Why shouldn't it be that way everyday?

    A dress code would be less outrageous. With a dress code kids can still wear what they want for the most part they just can't wear things that are deemed inappropriate.

    I really hope the uniform policy is disbanded because it is awful and hypocritical. The schools tell the students to be themselves and to express themselves yet they make them all wear the same uniform! Now tell me, where's the individuality in that? That's right, there is none. Not to mention the fact the schools basically subscribe to communism when they force the kids to wear uniforms because they make they kids all dress the same. If the teachers don't have to wear uniforms why should the kids?
