You can dress'em up, but........

The faculty at R. P. Boire High School were confronted with a dilemma a while ago. While they weren't paying attenton, they'd lost control of their school. The problem, as I see it, was that they'd allowed a master race of bullies to take root due to their gutless inertia. Rather than face the problem head on, they attacked a symptom of the disease: the way their students were dressed. The quick, easy and WRONG solution: mandatory school uniforms. Granted, it did solve the minor issue of snobbery concerning what people were wearing. Too bad wearing uniforms doesn't improve the character of the person inside the clothing. The people out there in TVland who insist that wearing uniforms makes people uniform are sadly mistaken when they squeal about the loss of individuality; Jeremy Jones is the same hatefilled thug he always was and always will be. He's just dressed differently, that's all. Unfortunately, the staff believe that their Magic Dress Code has ushered in an age of civilty because they haven't addressed the real problem: their refusal to see for themselves what's going on around them. Like Elly Patterson, they'll be caught flatfooted by the inevitable and disastrous results of their failure to take REAL action.
