Uniforms are cheaper

To those who contend uniforms are more costly, I'd like to point out as others have, that this is simply not true. Children only need 5 or 6 polos and pairs of slacks. These can be bought at any number of stores and even allow a little room for individuality. Because her mom was working and couldn't make the sale, I've shopped for my niece, who is required to only wear polos and jeans or khakis. I found 3 or 4 shirts at Belk's back to school sale that fit the bill. They have a little feminine cap sleeve and a yoke with tucks but have the polo collar and button neckline. They were solid colors. Color too allows for individuality. The best thing is they were $11 or $12 a piece. She wears her nicer clothes, which she already had, elsewhere. It takes the battle out of school dress. Believe me there will be plenty other battles to fight when you're raising a child. Uniforms eliminates one of them. She has no one to hand them down to and I'm sure her mom would love to donate to a school initiative where donated clothes are accepted for those in need.
