I think uniforms are stupid and pointless. They got introduced into my junior high in my 8th grade year and I had to wear them in 8th and 9th grade. I don't think it makes all the kids look the same. You can easily tell the haves from the have nots regardless of uniforms. The thugs still wear their pants up under their butts... albeit with a belt around their thighs. Kids get sent to the office everyday to hassle their parents to bring them belts... and I don't view belts as a necessity if your pants aren't falling down.
