Mailboxes full of flyers of children kitted out in pristine new uniforms. I am all for school uniform. It looks smart, removes the social implications of clothing and its associated battle for status. It makes sense to have a hardwearing wardrobe that suits all. Although the "suits all" is questionable as rarely are uniforms stylish or flattering. Perhaps that is the point. Children are at school to learn, think, have fun, make friends and not be in a fashion show.
