Having gone to a private school then two parochial schools, you could say I grew up in school uniforms. They were a very simple solution to avoiding a fashion crisis. Of course, girls in my high school always tried to show their own style by constantly competing to see who could roll their skirt the highest. Now, even the local public schools are using uniforms.
Is a uniform necessary in homeschool? No, you don’t need to to have a uniform to successfully teach your children. Out of the competitive world of brick and mortal schools, they are no longer dressing to impress their classmates. However, I believe that uniforms could possibly have a place in your homeschool, especially if you have children that have trouble getting motivated in the morning.
A uniform could put your child in the mindset that it is time for school. It may be beneficial to children who are having trouble transitioning to the environment of school in the home, especially after being in an outside school. Of course, if you are successfully using child-led learning or unschooling, a uniform may not fit in your homeschool.
I am seriously considering uniforms for my children. But I guess I would probably need one as well, as we all need to get in the proper frame of mind in the morning. Headmistress uniform, anyone?
