BANGKOK — Starting Tuesday, students at an all-boys school in Bangkok will be able to leave their uniforms at home and come to class in the clothes they want.

 

Bangkok Christian College announced Monday that the new policy is part of an experiment to see whether dress codes – or the lack thereof – would affect students’ ability to study and socialize.

Why don't they just pay attention to studies already done which show that wearing school uniform "promotes commonality among pupils, improves concentration and fosters a sense of pride?" 

Impact of school uniforms

 

yes, but then they should improve a bit on the uniforms, those shown in the OP don't really look like they should "foster a sense of pride"

Yes, the uniforms are why Thailand is an intellectual leader among countries and why students always pass each course and move to next grade; they have the commonality of cheating, laziness, lack of intellectual interest in anything apart from cell phone games and line.

I think the uniform is a great thing, not having the problem of what to wear everyday. And the there's no competition among the kids who's wearing the fanciest clothes. And, its cheap!

 

Not cheap. Often different uniforms for different days, plus sports and scouts ones. All have to have name of school, pupil, class, course etc put on.

 

And the competition is on smart phones and designer pencil cases and who goes where on the holidays!
