I agree with Jo S.

I think uniforms are less expensive for parents than trying to keep up with fashions and fads and peer pressure, and give kids more of a chance to focus on academics.

Uniforms also alleviate social stress for the kids, and at the same time give them somewhere external to focus the blame for looking dorky (school board, parents, etc.), which is especially fun for teenagers.

Dimitris D. suggested we answer as we would when we were kids, and that is my answer. I might have complained, but I would have been secretly relieved not to have to think about clothes all the time.

I think it would be cheaper in the long run for parents, & cut down on bullying for those that can't afford expensive things & jealousy. Eliminating competition & bullying. Everyone is dressed the same.JMO

First, you should ask the kids.
Then, you should ask yourself, but answer as you felt as kid :)
