dc.description.abstractSince the implementation of school uniforms in the 1950s, much controversy and debate has developed between parents and schools over the rights and privileges of the students and children involved. A literature review of the history behind uniforms, how they were implemented in the U.S., how they have been perceived, facts as to their success rates, and a brief look at court cases in which uniforms were the main issue of debate was the main method to this study. It was determined that the advantages of uniforms outweigh the disadvantages and should be adopted as a normal practice in schools across the U.S., with the understanding that formal, scientific experiments need to be conducted in order to truly understand the correlation between uniforms and achievement and behavior change. Uniforms may provide unforeseeable trouble to families living in poverty and authority figures in charge of enforcing uniform policies.
