Are School Uniforms Working?

We're only a couple of days into the new school year and the Daily Comet asked the question 'after 10 years, do school uniforms really work'. While there are too many varying factors for them to make any firm conclusions, it's an interesting article and the comments from parents and students are especially insightful. Among other things, they say that the uniforms are more expensive and that making everyone wear the same color scheme hasn't deterred teasing. Kids now make fun if you're not wearing a "Dickie" brand generic khaki pant instead of a Walmart brand khaki pant. I guess kids will be kids... What do you think - are school uniforms working?
