A proposal by William C last week
Chairman of the Board of Education Thompson asked all public primary schools to wear school uniforms in the fall of 1999 ---
It\'s possible to include older students in the future. -
Among students and parents, a new debate has been raised about the merits of cool and school, personality and assembly, comfort and behavior.
Advertising supporters believe that school uniforms can instill pride and discipline, save parents money, and protect students from interference and potential dangers from clothing competition.
But visits to several public, private and parish schools in the city that already require school uniforms clearly show that dress code is a challenge, not a task, for most students.
Goal: bend and extend the rules with clothing statements as subtle as code.

\"There is a small white shirt under my shirt,\" she said . \".
\"I put up my collar.
Because this is a baby.
I have a doll shirt under me.

\"I wore short sleeves, so I wore a watch,\" she added . \".
\"I don\'t usually wear a watch.
What about nails?
\"White nail polish is used with my white shirt \".
\"I like this uniform,\" Smith explained.
There was no one-hour decision in the morning.
In fact, many of the students interviewed agreed to a unified policy on the grounds that there was the same savings in terms of time, money and self.
Respected by parents and school officials.
But like fashion students around the world, students without fashion are pushing envelopes with colors, shapes and materials.
