To be altogether honest, I am not sure I would be opposed to a teachers uniform. At least we would all look similar, would be easily spotted in classroom, corridor or at parents evenings etc. and the kids couldnt complain that they were forced to wear xyz whilst teachers could wear what they liked. One of the things I found difficult in a very large comp I once taught in is that half the kids didn't know me and ignored my commands to do as the rules required. This was because they didn't recognise me as a teacher. Those teachers they knew had no problems. Of course, it would be even better if the school had to pay for it ( like they do in the Post Office, Mc Donalds and most shops). It would save me a fortune and I wouldnt be worrying about what to wear.
