You'd hope that a faculty code would not be necessary. A good
administrator should intervene with an individual who is lacking in
this area, not inflame the majority of the adult staff with a code
that is probably not necessary. You have to assess each school
individually. We are located in between two academy schools with
uniforms. Our kids look cleaner, smarter, and sharper. Why? Well,
the uniform at those other two places is actually an excuse for most
od those kids to just throw it on each morning after a night on the
floor, yellowing tops, etc. our kids just take more pride in
themselves. The socio-economic level of all three schools is the
same--pretty good $.
