Introduction: Does your child have to wear school uniforms or did you ever have to wear them while you were in school? School uniforms are very beneficial to the student even though school uniforms violate the student's rights to freedom of expression but it should not matter how a child is dressed. Wearing school uniforms encourages discipline and improves attendance and makes the students safe while in school. Uniforms also raise academics and attendance policies of the schools. It also eliminates bullying and diminishes the economic and social standards between students which causes conflict and the students are in school to learn and receive an education not based on how they are dressed. Paragraph 1 Bullying and peer pressure throughout schools is a major cause as to why students do not want to attend and drop out or leads to worse risks such as suicide because of bullying. Based on the statistics I have found is that through my research school uniforms or a formal dress code policy that is in place or believes that their current policy has made a significant positive impact on is peer pressure which is at an 86 percent increase and bullying at a 64 percent of an increase The survey states that since 2000 when the first policy was put in play throughout schools the increase in schools has greatly diminished bullying and peer pressure. The survey also revealed there are other areas where positivity and doing good prevailed when it came to school uniforms. Leaders stated that they believe their school uniform or formal dress code policy has made a positive impact on the following throughout a school. The classroom discipline is at 85 percent, Image in the community is at an 83 percent, student safety is at a 79 percent. The school pride is at 77 percent, the student achievement is at a 64 percent and attendance is at 44 percent increase since the first uniform policy has been put in place in 2000.
