Hey, guess what? Kanye West told TMZ he wants to design school uniforms to end bullying and classism. Maybe after that, Kanye will make edible clothing to end world hunger.

I wanna do school uniforms in Chicago also, for all the city of Chicago, just for a starting point to eventually ending classism and bullying worldwide.

Even though it's really fun to make fun of Kanye—like, really fun—he's sort of on to something with school uniforms. The National Center for Education Statistics reports that the use of school uniforms in urban school districts is on the rise, especially in areas with high rates of gang-related violence. On the other hand, the American Civil Liberates Union has been vocally against school uniforms, contending that they infringe on students' freedom of speech.
