School Uniforms

School uniforms are a hot topic. While some kids would love the same old outfit to wear every day to school, other kids loathe any perceived attempts to tamp down their individual expression. If you have children or plan to represent families or school districts, it is important to know the parameters of permissible restrictions on school attire. Here are several books and quick videos exploring the topic:
