MANDATORY SCHOOL UNIFORMS FOR ALL PUBLIC SCHOOLS IN THE U.S.A. (ELEMENTARY, PRIMARY, H.S.)

We all need to get in the habit of playing our part environmentally by reducing, reusing and recycling our waste, and if it has financial benefits then it is an even bigger bonus.

If school uniforms were mandatory in every state, parents should be and would be encoraged to reuse and recycle unifroms and school sports kits because is GREEN AND SAVES MONEY!

Also, school uniforms are a possitive impact on the learning enviroment. A big plus is that school uniforms reduce conflict over fashion that may stem from economic factors. Families with more money can afford to buy their children the latest, trendy fashions leading to feelings of envy and rivalry in others. Students who cannot afford to buy expensive clothes often feel inferior and like "outsiders." This can raise tensions and potential for violence. For those students whose families cannot readily afford money for uniforms, monies can be raised through donations from local businesses, but NOT from federal funds.
