Umm, what? Humans will always find a way to stand out and personalize. Uniforms and dress codes are not going to squash some kid's future.
I do not understand how anyone could expect schools to produce independent competent adults who are capable of being confident acting on their own initiative given their policies. They take the idea that an orderly environment is conducive to learning and then work that idea like a cargo cult, sacrificing the learning part entirely for the sake of discipline.
So you're saying soldiers, airline pilots, stewards/stewardesses, waiters, policemen, firemen, retail employees, nurses, surgeons, doormen, bellhops etc. are all mind numbed robots incapable of acting on their own initiative?
