This paper argues against the adoption of school uniforms as a way of increasing academic performance and decreasing school violence. The author confronts various pro-uniform facts with rebuttals in a point-by-point format. Additionally cited are research articles that show little relevance between school uniforms and the reduction of violence. The author concludes that schools with uniform policies should credit their successes to their other changes and divert energies into more worthwhile programs.
