Uniformity at School

Richard Bowen | 14:55 UK time, Tuesday, 9 May 2006

There are calls in Germany to make school uniforms compulsory across the country. Justice Minister Brigitte Zypries reckons uniforms are needed to help prevent religious and social discrimination. She also says the introduction of uniforms in all schools would stop the furore over Muslim students wearing the hijab.

What do you think? Are school uniforms compulsory in your country? Should they be? Does wearing a uniform give a sense of equality or is a threat to a child's identity? Have your say.
