education vs uniforms

My child attended burgaw elementary for the first half of school last year where they had to wear uniforms, we then transferred to wilmington where she attends Parsley. First, the education is better at Parsley, they actually care about what the child learns instead of what color their shirt is. My friends child still goes to Burgaw, where the education is not as high as she would like. The parents see more emphasis on what they can or cannot wear,instead of what they can be taught. I agree that students should have some rules on what to wear to school , but uniforms are not the answer. When a school has uniforms , yet fail their end of year grades, as in burgaw, freeman and others, I think they should stop worrying about if someone has on a approved belt and start worrying about if the child can spell belt.
