    basically a girl refused to wear school uniform (tunic and trousers) to wear a jilbab (full length gown). religious advisors say that muslim rules say she can wear the uniform.

    she says: yadda yadda yadda 9/11 yadda yadda racist yadda yadda free country yadda yadda yadda.

    i say: it's nothing to do with racism, sexism or any kind of prejudice. school uniform rules should be followed. (remember muslim advisors said the current uniform is fine). this is just a case of a teenage girl making a fuss for the sake of making a fuss (like teenagers do)

    School uniforms are gay. Get rid of 'em once and for all.

    I must agree with Dave. Wear the fucking uniform or don't come to school.

    I wish all schools had uniforms. Usually the only people pissed about it is the children that are still in school.

    School isn't a fashion show. It's a place of learning.

    Yup, I have to agree too, if the uniform is approved according to the advisors I can't understand how she could win anything.

    However since it is approved, I'd like to see some non-muslim english kids customizing their uniforms to fit their particular creed or ethnicity.

    They should wear enormous crosses or something. Just as a protest, like.

    If the school has uniforms it should apply to all, however girls should be allowed the choice of long trousers instead of skirts. That way the modesty issue should be "covered"

    itís an election with no Democrats, in one of the whitest states in the union, where rich candidates pay $35 for your votes. Or, as Republicans call it, their vision for the future.

    Nah ill be opposed to school uniforms until I die. And no, I'm not in school anymore. If work dress code is casual (in offices I mean) then why shouldnt the schools be?

    Schools are a place of learning.

    There is already enough distractions. Wtf to wear shouldn't be one of them.

    I've already said the pro to school uniforms. What's the con?
