School Uniforms and Discourses on Childhood.
Bodine, Ann
Childhood: A Global Journal of Child Research, v10 n1 p43-63 Feb 2003
This ethnographic study examined the introduction of school uniforms in the public schools of one California city. Findings indicated that the uniform issue intersected with issues such as student safety and violence, family stress, egalitarianism, competitive dressing, and a power struggle over shaping the childhood environment. It was concluded that the uniform discussion could be put to better use to explore larger issues raised by students, parents, and teachers. (Author/KB)
