  4. 4. Dress for Success?<br />1996, President Bill Clinton recommended schools adopt a dress policy that included school uniforms. <br />Since then, 21 states and the District of Columbia have adopted rules that allow for districts to tell students how to dress. <br />

  14. 14. Where are YOU?<br />Modern education has different values:<br />Showcase everyone’s ability, regardless of different characteristics & skills<br />Student creativity <br />Accept responsibility for your life decisions.<br />
  15. 15. Success Regardless of Dress<br />Many schools, and many countries, have been able to maintain high academic standards without uniforms. <br />
