in my opinion i believe Willard F. Payne elementry is by far the school that needs the most improvment. The district should stop wearing uniforms. i do undrestand that we wear uniforms for the prevention of kidnapping or other things. But if a child is lost or kidnapped they will be asking the parent or guardian or anyone taking care of the child 'what was your child wearing' the parent or guardian will response white colar shirt and navy pants. it will be obvious they wont be able to identify your child most likely. but if your child does not wear uniform you would say as an example purple and white poka doted blouse and torqouise shorts. it will make it easier to find your lost child because the childs clothing is more detailed than regular white shirt and blue jeans. i hope you guys change the rule on uniforms!
