HAMPTON COUNTY SCHOOL DISTRICT 2 NEED SCHOOL UNIFORMS. IF YOU AGREE PLEASE SIGN THIS PETITION TO CONSIDER SCHOOL UNIFORMS.

If it means that the school rooms will be more orderly and more disciplined, and that our young people will learn to evaluate themselves by what they are on the inside, instead of what theyre wearing on the outside, then our public schools should be able to require their students to wear uniforms. [Bill Clinton, former president of the United States, Long Beach, CA 1996]

School uniforms is an issue which has caused a lot of debate in the last few years. Many students feel they lose their identity when everyone is required to wear the same clothes to schools. Others feel a school uniform makes students equal. Many teachers and school administrators are looking to a school uniform or a uniform dress code as a means for instilling a feeling of discipline in the classes as well as an atmosphere of learning.
Some English students have recently come out in support of school uniforms. According to a survey of 1,300 teens, 67\% of the boys and 52\% of the girls prefer wearing uniforms to school.
Here are some pros and cons.
Reasons For Wearing School Uniforms
It helps save time in the morning
It stops feelings of jealousy
It helps reduce discipline problems teachers can teach and students can learn.
It sets the tone for a proper work attitude
Preventing gang colors, etc. in schools
Decreasing violence and theft because of clothing and shoes
Instilling discipline among students
Reducing need for administrators and teachers to be 'clothes police' (for example, determining whether shorts are too short, etc.)
Reducing distractions for students
Instilling a sense of community
Helping schools recognize those who do not belong on campus

Reasons Against Wearing School Uniforms
It takes away students freedom to make decisions
It hurts the need for self-expression
It stops students from feeling unique and special.
Students don't want to wear what everybody else is wearing.
