Violence and Other Antisocial Behaviors in Public Schools: Can Dress Codes Help Solve the Problem?
Holloman, Lillian O.
Journal of Family and Consumer Sciences, v82 n4 p33-38 Win 1995
Gang violence, thefts, and costs are among the reasons schools are adopting dress codes or uniforms. Evidence of their effect on behavior is largely anecdotal; empirical research is needed. Home economics professionals can work with parents to set dress policies, get student input, incorporate the teaching of values about clothing, build student self-esteem, and treat all students equally regardless of socioeconomic status.
