I'm almost ready to wonder about school uniforms
Original post made by Worried Parent, Midtown, on Oct 25, 2007
I realize that there are a lot of affluent families here, but I find myself upset when conversations like this happen and children are excluded because they don't wear expensive clothes, shoes, accessories or whatever. The language used is hurtful.
It's times like these that I begin to wonder about school uniforms and how they might level the field. When you hear, “Oh my god - can you believe what she is wearing?", followed by a break down description in a disdainful tone of voice coming from a 2nd grader, that's when I think about the uniform idea in a more positive light.
Why post today? I'm just more disgusted than usual and am interested to hear from others.
