SCHOOL UNIFORMS: Con|Making everyone dress alike won't solve anything

Sandusky Register Staff • Mar 23, 2010 at 6:24 PM

Hi! I’m a seventh grader at Adams Jr. High in Sandusky City Schools, and I strongly oppose uniforms. On to the points:

Money Saving: WRONG! Now I don’t know one student who would wear these uniforms outside of school. So, that means if I do happen to grow during this year (which I expect to) I will have to buy new social clothes, and then I would have to buy the uniforms, at least 5 ($125) because my mom only does laundry about once a week. For everyone who is over there saying “you can wear them at least twice before you wash them” here is a little reminder: Don’t you remember your teacher in about sixth grade giving you “the talk” about how you needed deodorant, about how your body was changing and you can’t wear the same shirt two days in a row. Basically: Money Saving? Not quite.

These kids wearing baggy clothes are security threat: They could bring in weapons anyway. In the seventh grade alone, I would say most girls carry purses. A knife, even a bomb or in my friends case, multiple guns, could fit in one of those. Even the boys carry binders. You could easily fit a gun or knife into one of those. I had a friend last year, that if you stuck a pencil in his afro you couldn’t find it again, well it could be the same with a knife.
