The boys have started school again, and you know what I miss about Brazil? The uniforms.

There are a lot of things that can be said about the superior quality of education in Canada, but I miss the uniforms of a third-world country!

In Brazil all the kids wear uniforms for school, from kindergarten to secondary school, public and private schools alike. They like it so much that a lot of jobs that one wouldn’t expect to have uniforms, require their employees to wear one too (pharmacies, supermarkets, restaurants, gyms, driver’s schools, etc.). It usually consists of comfortable shorts and T-shirt, sometimes a pair of pants and a light jacket too (optional), in a resistant and very washable fabric. It’s cheap, durable, and oh so practical. The boys had each two pairs of uniforms, and I simply needed to wash the dirty one while the other was being used.

  1. The anarchist in me is completely against the idea of uniforms, but the mother in me agrees with you: it must be practical! From what I saw in Brazil, most uniforms are actually pretty straightforward too. I find the British ones way too complicated and conservative!

    • When every kid wears a uniform, nobody cares who has changed clothes everyday in the past week (unless it starts to stink! ha ha), or who has a new pair of pants, or whose mom only buys second-hand clothes. Uniforms frees you from all that bull shit that should have no room in a kid’s school.

Oi! Tudo bom?
