Just a quick hit here on the idiocy of school uniforms. If you wanted to see the definition of cargo cult behavior as I explained it in the rationalurbanism podcast, just contemplate the idea of making (urban) students wear uniforms. The reasoning goes like this: Expensive private schools make their students wear uniforms and those students perform well academically. Poor kids in cities perform poorly academically and what they wear is restricted only by a dress code. Uniforms improve academic performance!
