Sounds like an actual safety hazard to me!
Are you really sure about that?
Which underlines the absurdity of uniforms: only students have to wear them.
We too! Although the teachers all shared the same first name : “Sir” or “Madam”
Seriously, we were not even allowed to know the first names of teachers. Not even in primary school (I remember asking my teacher once and he answered evasively by saying I had an (over-)inquiring mind - didn’t stop me of finding out anyway. Ha!) At secondary/high school, the teachers were simply referred to by their nicknames usually. Some of the teachers even used those nicknames. And they addressed us by our last names. No uniforms though.
What is a trainer? No, really… I assume you’re not talking about what we call a trainer (sweat pants), 'cause I can imagine no kid wants to be caught dead or alive wearing one of those to school.
So what happens then is you’ll have all these uniform kids who have different smartphones…
Same thing. And the one with the most expensive smartphone/highest income isn’t necessarily the coolest. Or the best friend. The issue is that it takes teens different amounts of time to realise that. And some never do, unfortunately. “Hey look, I have a bigger car… bigger house…” Yeah, so f**** what.
That’s another thing, which was changed by law in the 90s around here: no more separate boys and girls schools. But still to this day, it is apparent what the history of each “highly acclaimed” school is.
The nuns might be gone, but their spirits still haunt the hallways.
