I have 6 children. 3 are grown and out of school and 3 are under 9. Basically the school board got their way and we have uniforms. We can pick the color but they are uniforms. As I searched for clothes for my 7 and 9 year olds, the appropriate attire is listed under uniforms on oldnavy.com and target.com. There was nothing left in little boys clothes at Wal-mart and precious little in girls. In todays in economy I am finding it tough to completely re-wardobe the 2 children I have in elementary school. I think we have lost our focus.
I understand the need for a change and appreciate it but they went too far. Nobody is concerned with learning. Kids are being sent home for the slightest infractions. Everyone is checking out clothes and if they are under code. My kids love school and I admit I am going to be pretty mad if they get sent home for something petty. No stripes, no embroidery, no prints or flowers. Solid color shirts and plain pants. Think about it. Our kids are in uniforms it just doesn't say that in the dress code.
I think we need a revised "revised dress code" Kids ar ok in stripes and flowers and multiple colors. As long as the have no words on them and the clothes fit properly what's the problem. At this point I am wondering if the school board has their priorities straight. Isn't the focus supposed to be on keeping our kids in school, being educated. Seems we have lost that in this mess over what we are wearing.
