Praises School Board for student uniforms rule



The Richmond County Board of Education is working for us and our children. So what's wrong with trying to make our schools safer and a better environment for learning?

The Board has ruled on the uniforms -- which is a good thing and not a bad thing as some whining parents make it out to be.

Uniforms have been tried in other cities and the children are actually learning. The children who are less fortunate at long last feel equal.

Parents, try to work with the School Board and not against it. You are only teaching your children to be whiners.

Some things need to be challenged, but not this. I'm proud our children are in uniforms.
