    Would this be correct?

    Ok, I found this in a grammar in use book, and another teacher and I are discussing about it, so I'd like second, or better yet, third opinions.

    "Most children in England have to wear uniform to school".

    I believe that the sentence should say most children have to wear a uniform or have to wear uniforms. Still does anyone think the singular is correct without the indefinite article "a". If so, why??

    It's OK with or without the article, IMO. I would probably use 'a', though.
