Yes, a loud resounding yes....but I a.so believe it needs to be a source of pride for the kids too. Not just a sloppy misfit blend of some uniform components. My son goes to a private school now and he is proud of his uniform, it has changed his level of pride in himself and the level of effort he puts in to presenting himself in general, even his posture changed when he put on that shirt and tie and blazer. Previously he was slopping to school in a polo shirt and various sloppy bottoms.
I also think it is just one less thing for kids (especially teenagers) to have to think about every morning, one less status/fashion/income statement causing fashionista issues as school.
He is also in scouts and is proud of his scout uniform too, no jumper to hide it if we go down the street etc and his mates in scouts are the same.

My kids school has a non compulsory uniform which the vast majority wear, but in winter they can wear different coloured leggings and undershirts so they can still choose things they like.
I've noticed our clothes bill has gone right down since starting school.

OP I should add if I was choosing a school for my kids and found one I liked but didn't have a uniform it wouldn't be determinative for me. Schools should be able to promote equality among the students without a uniform.

It would have taken me so much longer to get ready if I had to choose what I was wearing to school.
It also means kids aren't teased for not having the coolest clothes.

I love my kids school uniforms. Working mothers best friend. No choice. No arguements.

I love that our school of choice has a uniform. I hate the price tag that comes with it though

I like the emphasis on self presentation that my sons private school requires, but I also like the idea of the individualism of Montessori!

Yep. State schools where I live don't have uniforms andvthe stuff the kids where to school is shocking. Surely cleavage and butt cheeks should b covered at school! Apparently not. One of the reasons kids r at a private school is because they wear a uniform. Ironic thing is ( when looking at the OP) it's a montessori school.
