Wright, Krystal M.
ProQuest LLC, Ed.D. Dissertation, Wilmington University (Delaware)
Schools are continuously searching for solutions to solve truancy, academic, behavioral, safety, and climate issues. One of the latest trends in education is requiring students to adhere to dress codes as a solution to these issues. Dress codes can range from slightly restrictive clothing to the requiring of a uniform. Many school district stakeholders are continuously posing the question as to whether student dress codes have an effect in school. There are strong believers that they are the solution to many issues facing schools today, and then there are those who are not convinced they are responsible for school improvement. This qualitative study consisted of interviewing students, parents, teachers, and administrators in a school district which just established a new student dress code. The participants were interviewed twice during the school year to gather a full understanding of their perspectives of the student dress code. The results of this study will be a source of data for the school district to review when reevaluating the student dress code.
