When the childen in Africa tell Oprah that they want uniforms so they can go to school (versus American kids who want Nike's or Ipods)... Why doesn't Oprah talk to the schools about abandoning their Draconian attitudes and actions about Uniforms??
A well written Dress CODE (saying what cannot be worn) works!! Uniforms are not necessary.
What can I say, this is a pet peave of mine. I see uniforms as another way of stifling a students soul and suppressing critical thought.
