I know that it is expensive to pay for seperate school clothes. I let my children wear the same clothes all the time. Sure, they will have uniforms and dress codes when they get outta school, but they are kids, let's let them express themselves. This is not just for learning from books but for learning how to interact with other people, regardless of how they are dressed. To dress them all the same is to give them the idea that everyone is robot-like and everyperson is the same, not true. They can have the same disadvantages with similar clothing as they have with them all dressed differently. You can tell whos clothes are new, whos are old. You can tell who's been ironed, who hasn't. You can still see the differences in their social status. Why bother with the dress code?
