The Journal of Education

The Journal of Education Reasearch published a study conducted on the school uniform's effect on a student's performance. It was conducted by David L. Brunsma of the University of Alabama and by Kerry A. Rockquemore of the University of Notre Dame. The findings: Student uniforms have no direct effect on substance use, behavioral problems, or attendance. You could dress these kids in potato sacks and it wouldn't matter. Kids are going to behave according to how they are raised. They are going to put the same amount of time and effort into getting an education whether they get their clothes at Belks or the thrift store. Uniforms are a distraction by the school administration. No one at school has what it takes to tell some punk to pull his pants up over his drawers so they think a uniform requirement is going to take that responsibility away from them and automatically fix it all. What a joke.
