I realize that there are a lot of affluent families here, but I find myself upset when conversations like this happen and children are excluded because they donâ€™t wear expensive clothes, shoes, accessories or whatever. The language used is hurtful.
Itâ€™s times like these that I begin to wonder about school uniforms and how they might level the field. When you hear, â€œOh my god - can you believe what she is wearing?â€, followed by a break down description in a disdainful tone of voice coming from a 2nd grader, thatâ€™s when I think about the uniform idea in a more positive light.
Why post today? I'm just more disgusted than usual and am interested to hear from others.
