For many students, parents and educational staff, implementing a school dress code provides practical benefits, such as eliminating time and worry in the morning deciding what to wear. For many families, having clothing supplied for children by a school significantly reduces the financial costs typically associated with purchasing new clothing. Wearing school uniforms also makes students feel less pressure to follow the lead of peers and purchase trendy and expensive apparel. School uniforms can make students safer at school too. Having students dress alike makes it easier for staff and students to identify intruders. Additionally, wearing matching clothing helps students feel connected to a group of peers, which may lead to positive changes in behavior and reduce rates of violence and destruction of school property.
