Not so bad...

My son attends a public high school in New Hanover county which requires uniforms. It is not a uniform in which everyone "looks alike". They are required to wear either khaki, black or navy slacks with either a navy, white of black polo shirt which displays the school emblem. They are also required to tuck in their shirts and wear belts. It is an attempt to create a more professional, business-like environment in which to prepare these kids for the "real world". I really don't see it as a bad thing. I do understand the concerns of the general public, but I also believe that it assists in the more positive self-image of the students. Friday is a more casual day in which the students are allowed to wear jeans. It also makes for an easier morning. I just don't see where this has anything to do with "Socialism".
