The History and Significance of School Uniforms. School uniforms have been apart of the school systems around the world for hundreds of years. Uniforms have been debated whether they should be implemented into school systems and if they help students study better, have better social skills, and reduce bullying in the school itself.
There is also a risk that by introducing school uniforms, the administration risks inducing some children to rebel against authority, which may negatively affect discipline and attendance (Gentile and Imberman, 2010). Moreover, there seems to be a lack of research proving that school uniforms can actually improve performance and discipline.
