Open Access Graduate Research Paper

Abstract

The hot topic of uniforms in public schools has been of great interest in recent years. Many believe uniforms can help the middle school child learn better. Some would use it to control violence and gang activities in schools. Others would use it to promote pride and academic achievement. Some say it would cut costs for needy families, and cut competition with clothing styles. Those who oppose school uniforms contend there is a lack of firm data to support a "fad" such as this with uniforms. Instead, dress codes should be enforced and maintained. Some people feel uniforms give a false sense of togetherness. Parents and students see uniforms as taking away individuality. Committees of students, parents, teachers, administrators, and community leaders need to make the decision about what school uniforms can and cannot do for their schools.
