And by the way, that must have been very difficult for you to switch in 10th grade. One more thing to adjust to! I was so dumb: One hour later I came back and found only the bench there! Never occurred to me that someone would take my stuff! I am sad thinking of that story! How could someone take your clothes! Sad — to have to learn that particular lesson.

I am at a school with a uniform policy and there are still stacks and stacks of write up forms and students failing by the scores. I moved from a non- uniform school to a uniformed one.

Status and wealth certainly are not removed from the situation. That hierarchy still exists. The fact of the matter is, the wealthier students will still have their expensive-brand name materials with them - namely jackets, hats, backpacks, ipads, cellphones, shoes, etc.
