Dress Codes Matter

A flurry of articles and recent studies reveal that 'dress down' days in the workplace have not boosted worker productivity or morale.

If anything, employers who have implemented dress down days have noted decreases in productivity and quality of work, decreases in worker commitment, increases in absence and tardiness, relaxed manners and morals, and even increases in litigation.

The same phenomena holds forth when it comes to children in school, children who, presumably, are attempting to learn and who are seeking to do their best.

More Serious and Attentive

When children wear good clothes or a school uniform (so that everyone can be clothed equally), there is a higher probability that the children will be more serious, attentive, and conscientious throughout the day.

Where children are allowed to wear whatever they want in one school system after another across America, can we be so sure that they are emotionally, socially, and psychologically primed to be at their best?

In an era where people are clamoring for ideas as to how to improve educational systems, where budgets are shrinking, and where finger-pointing abounds, the simplicity and effectiveness of having children dress more appropriately for school is one that we cannot afford to overlook.
