Rationale for School Uniform Policy

A uniform will allow students to be less immersed in following fashion trends and more focused on learning and achieving.

Uniforms encourage students to develop their personal attributes in methods other than dress, personality, intellect, effort and skills.

Evidence shows that enforced uniform policies bring a level of safety to a school, a decline in truancy and an increase in attendance.

Uniforms bring an image of success to a school.

Rationale for School Uniform Policy

Uniforms will eliminate discipline problems due to dress code violations (baggy, saggy pants; no belts; inappropriate logos on shirts; short/shirts that are too revealing).

Uniforms will help eliminate problems related to socio-economic differences as seen in students' clothing.

Uniforms will help eliminate bullying due to differences in appearance.

Uniforms will help provide an environment conducive to learning and free from distractions caused by clothing issues.

Uniforms help students to develop a sense of pride and "professionalism" related to their job as learners, thereby increasing student achievement.

Discussion among the participants was held. Questions regarding the implementation of school wear were answered. At the end of the meeting, parents were given ballots on which to express their opinions. Each meeting format was the same
  • After the last parent meeting, notes were sent to every family giving everyone who had not attended a meeting an opportunity to vote

Supporting Research Results

The Advantage Press newsletter (dated 06.04) reports that according to the U.S. Department of Education, "a safe and disciplined learning environment is the first requirement of a good school". The newsletter goes on to add that students that are learning basic values and the essentials of good citizenship; and who are safe and secure, are better students. Many educational advocates are coming to see that the use of school uniforms is one positive and creative way to reduce discipline problems and increase school safety. Though this adoption of school uniforms is implemented to improve school safety; other potential benefits of school uniforms are emerging. These other benefits include; instilling students with discipline, helping students resist peer pressure, helping students concentrate on their school work and enhancing the learning environment. Therefore placing emphasis on what school is about – giving students the opportunity to learn and teachers the opportunity to teach.
