Rude Youth Needs Uniform From Mrs L Fortescue-Smythe Dear Sir, I am writing to you because I do not approve of the views expressed in the article about school uniform in last week’s newspaper. Your article made me fume. In my view, school uniform is an essential part of children’s education. The article suggested that young people at Tanford School think that it is cruel to make them wear a blue blazer and black shoes. This is not true. There are very few rules that today’s youth have to follow. They would certainly change their tune if they knew what freedom they really have today. Many teenagers I meet are rude and useless. They haven’t a clue what proper behaviour is. They throw food in the street and are extremely moody. It may sound prudish but I also object to their crude jokes. I for one do not find their jokes amusing. They are foolish. To conclude, I think that without a proper dress code children of this age lose all sense of right and wrong. They will be running around nude next. We must make sure that they use their brains and wear uniform instead of running around the streets making huge amounts of trouble. Yours faithfully LAETITIA FORTESCUE-SMYTHE
