Abstract

The need for education reform is evident in public schools across the nation. Researchers, school officials, parents, and teachers have been looking at different ways to promote a better learning environment that will allow students to feel safe, equal, and free to express themselves in different ways within the classroom. In recent years, many of these same people have contended that implementing school uniform policies within schools is the way to create that kind of learning environment.

Within this paper, a closer look at the issues surrounding school uniform policies will be examined. Both sides of the issues will be weighed to see if school uniform policies are what public school systems need in order to meet the changing needs of the education world. Additionally, research based conclusions on how to successfully implement a uniform policy within a school district are presented.
