Being a former educator I'm always interested in what the school systems are like in the counties I visit. I've noticed that many if not most countries I've visited require students to wear uniforms. While I was teaching this topic was debated frequently. I personally saw students berated for not having the latest designer jeans and or sneakers, get in trouble for wearing too short skirts or shorts, and paying more attention to what their class mates were wearing than their school work. Clothes just seemed to be a huge distraction in the educational process in my experience as a teacher.
I learned that students are required to attend school until they are twenty one years old. I was only inside the school area for a short period of time during recess as I didn't want to overstay my welcome. The outside and inside of the school looked clean and well kept. Below is a photo of the outside of the school I visited. Most of the schools I saw on the island were painted in the typical bright colors that I saw around the island.

Do you think students should be required to wear uniforms in public schools? Please leave me your thoughts and or comments and thanks for stopping by! Have a great week!
