No it doesnt affect the school academic acheivments or the

attendance but it causes an increase in behavioral issues and loss

of time during classes because the children are uncomfortable

looking like each other instead of expressing themselves.

Conversely:While those who currently/previously have worn

uniforms tend to be vehemently against them, the truth is that they

help. In schools where uniforms are implemented, students tend to

be more successful because they come to school, dressed their best.

The tendency among students is that those who are dressed in

uniforms do perform better in school because they are not focused

on the latest trends or possibly their lack of the monetary needs

for these styles.As far as school safety, uniforms can prevent

students from wearing gang related clothing. In many high schools

the se of uniforms has significantly dropped gang related violence

on their campuses. Also, uniforms tend to create a unifying

denominator that allows for students to feel less threatened from

their peers which can also decrease school bullying.
