My topic deals with recent Uniform Policies put in place in the Cleveland City School district. In 2008 Cleveland schools Chief Executive Eugene Sanders put a policy in place that all Cleveland City Schools would wear uniforms. A main reason for this was to help with the costs of parents sending their children to these schools because they would no longer have to buy them new school clothes, but would be given uniforms. The start of this current school year, however, the city was not able to fund the uniforms and had to ask for donors, yet the uniform policy stayed in place.I am interested in this topic for a couple reasons: one, I am from a suburb of cleveland and have heard about the issue a little bit, but would like to know more about not only this issue but the school district and its budget and policies and two, because I am majoring in Middle Childhood Education and am very interested in education and school-type issues. I think that most of the research I gather will most likely be from Cleveland local newspapers and online blogs and articles from people local of the city of Cleveland. Much of the research I have done already has been from Cleveland.com. I am expecting to find from all of my research many opposing views on the policy. The school board and its members I would assume would be for Uniforms, Students, however I would expect to be against it. I would be interested about what Teachers and parents that are in the district think about the policy. Article Summary - This article tells about an announcement that Cleveland schools Chief Executive Eugene Sanders gave during a news conference July 25th 2007. During this report he announced that starting that fall the school district would put in place a uniform policy. The ammouncement then turned into a fashion show with kids actually showing off the outfits that they would be able to and required to wear to school. He notes that he knows that it will be a big “cultural shift” for the community, but he believed that they would find a way to make it fashionable. This article goes on to tell how Cuyohoga County Commissioners are chipping in 1.5 million dollars in order to help the low income families in the area. This was a big reason for the uniforms being put in place. Another announcement that Eugene Sanders made, and that was noted in the article was that in addition to the uniform policy, Cleveland would be adding a new single gender academy for boys with a very competitive application process.
