From the Paper:

"President Clinton's (1996) statement concerning the safety of our children during school hours triggered a nation-wide debate over the effectiveness of school uniforms, as they appear to create a decline in school disciplinary problems (LaPoint, 1992). According to educators, parents and students, appearance is becoming an issue at a very young age (LaPoint, 1992). Greater value is placed on appearance and clothing. Many children have become "preoccupied" with expensive designer labels and entertainer endorsed brand name items (LaPoint, Holloman, and Alleyne, 1993). Schools are facing situations involving students committing violent crimes against one another, with clothing as the focal point. These crimes include stealing clothes, and students attacking other students because of the outfits that they wear (Stellato, 1998)."
