Charlie Taylor, uniform has nothing to do with behaviour. On the contrary, a lot of problems are caused by interfering teachers pulling perfectly contented children up over their failure to conform with petty uniform rules.

School rules should be based on the libertarian principle that only acts infringing the valid rights of others can be termed crimes.
