    What problems are we talking about? From my prespective as a student having a uniform imposed upon him I saw no change except we all looked relatively the same. I did notice that the school staff would continually add more and more to the uniform policy with each passing year. That the staff spent large amounts of time telling students to tuck in their shirts, roll down their socks, button your shirt to the top, as well as the paper work involved in sending a student to the office for a more serious violation of the policy like for instance having shoe strings that did not match the color of your shoes(Really?). One day a teacher had the gall to tell my I had to shave(I was one of those young men who could grow respectable facial hair.) that I wasn't in compliance with the uniform policy. Needless to say who that conversation went. Keep in mind I went to a public school. The uniform policy felt more of a way for them to impose they're views on us then to actually do anything else.

    People that don't like school uniforms must have an ugly school uniform. They should have a sexxxxy school uniform and then they wouldn't complain.

    Well that's not actually true,you'll see I know people with degree(s) and have trouble finding suitable employment,there are only certain jobs available and many people are underemployed because of it..Continue with your schooling because you can't spell too well, not a good thing for job applications or resumes.It's not a put down you're young you'll see how hard it truly is out there some day. ;)

    No child left back imo is why we graduate so many that can't read,write or do math well.The schools get $ by showing their students graduate and do well,many schools have been caught doctoring up test scores for that reason $.Still didn't engage spell check I see.How do you expect to be taken serious with a comment about education when you misspell grade school words is all I was pointing out.No one said anything about your intelligence.That shows you do lack experience in some areas misunderstanding what someone wrote.During their youth people are more likely to take things negativity an adult would more likely say 'Whoops' I goofed and lol Also I graduated school and have been in the work force long before you were born.I might know a little more from experiences.You think you get a degree and employers are knocking at your door,perhaps in the 1950's when few went to college. Now almost anyone can get a degree if they put the time and money in it doesn't make people special any longer,it's basically as valuable as a high school diploma was when I was your age. BTW I know all about being poor.I was never handed anything I worked and sweated my whole life.Peace

    How can one base their counter arguement on grammar when they themselves don't even bother to spell out words? "$" probably won't look to good on a job application either.
  • VERYwis... Sew 2011/01/28 03:04:56
    VERYwiseguy
    But everyone knows what $ means. Petty comparison? Yeah I do that on resumes and job apps.(applications) Now let's see if you notice the missing accent marks on resume. Please stop lol.BTW engage spell check,so if you type a resume on line it doesn't spell argument,arguement.It also makes for a poor argument concerning my spelling and grammar abilities. You're too funny.Peace bro(brother) ;)

    Yes, make them all wear uniforms. The reason is that no one can be judged as poor, rich or geekie. It would also make the kids have more decent clothes rather than ones that distract the kids.

    It's good that we have uniforms because we don't have to worry about inappropriate clothing or what we are going to wear the next day (haha)
    But it kinda limits our expression...kinda...well not really...we can express outside of school.

    I'm sick of uniforms. I go to a school that has dress scode nazis. Its a pain, and i feel that clothes are a way of expressing who you are. theyre can be regulations on clothes to keep them appropriate, but not nixing free dress altogether

    I'm just not sure either way. Clothing is a form of expression, but school uniforms take away some of the social stigma from the kids who can't afford expensive clothes. Most rich kids are little pricks anyway, so uniforms might give those little pricks one less reason to be little pricks.

    Pricks are pricks because they're pricks. How they dress won't change this about them. What will you ask? Their parents. Interestingly enough most kids are pricks because their parents are.

    'self expression' might = silly slut alert.. plus its a place of learning not a bluddy fashion show

    I didn't mind them when I was in school. One less thing to worry about. I had no decisions to make about clothes first thing in the morning. And since everyone was dressed alike, more or less (ties did not have to be at strangulation level), there was no heirarchy of kids who could afford better clothes than their peers. We could focus on education.

    Ha, yeah, she has probably the strongest Welsh accents I've ever heard on TV. I'm not sure she'd be able to fake a non-Welsh accent. But apparently aliens all have to sound English (if they can speak).
    Ianto had a very nice accent, I think.

    I thought he was the best character (well, other than Captain Jack.) I came as close to crying as I ever have watching a film when he died... Speaking of Captain Jack, I understand that he's originally from Scotland, and 10 minutes talking to a Scot and he sounds like a native.

    I cried like a baby when he died. It was embarrassing.
    Yes, the actor is. I believe he moved to America when he was 8 and he usually speaks in his Scottish accent with his family then American on TV or with other people. It's like having two accents really. Yes, I'm a John Barrowman fan. ;)

    Well, women are supposed to get all emotional. My wife was actually laughing at me. She kept saying, 'He's not really dead; it's only the character'.

    No, my male friend also cried at Ianto dying. And I don't usually cry at TV, I only nearly cry. Though I did cry at Captain Jack and other Captain Jack dancing in series one and at Day 5 of Children on Earth when the child was killed. I found that disturbing.
    I actually could never think of Ianto as "only a character". Or Captain Jack. Toshiko and Owen, however, were less interesting and I barely felt like crying at all when they died (either time for Owen).
