One of the most destinctive aspects of New Zealand schools are the uniforms. Americans will find it curious that for the most part that primary children do no wear uniforms, but almost all secondary schools require them. This was common in Britain during the early 20th century when school uniform trends were established in New Zealand. It is just the opposite of trends in America where many primary school children wear uniforms, but uniforms are much less common in secondary schools.

I think that uniforms should be worn in schools. As you can see, this boy from the 1930's is wearing a school uniform. The reason I think this way is because uniforms have been around for a long time. If the school district were to change that then things would be very different. I feel like people are just so used to seeing people with uniforms and if it were to be otherwise it would be a very unusual.
