I made the decision to leave before my exams as it was the final straw in a long running battle over the cost of uniform. Where I come from the uniforms are evreywhere and like I say I dont think its fair making us look like rejects walking around. In many schools, students are actually teased about 'how they wear' their school uniforms.

She knitted one by hand but I was hauled in front of the head as it was the wrong shade of green.

Also, parents would not have to fritter away all their hard-earned money upon frequently expensive items of clothing that are regarded as requisites.
