In order to implement this policy in the first place, the school MUST offer free uniforms to those who qualify for them according to income guidelines.
This process entails many costly things. The school now has a new department and staff to pay for. When I called to express my discontent I was sent to the "Uniforms Office" They are paying for the office and they are paying a wage to those who answer the phones and process the free uniform applications. Money people, just going down the drain! The costs of these free uniforms for those who cannot afford them cannot be cheap.
Its a huge waste.
Perhaps that money could be spent on learning materials that will get the majority of these schools out of the failing state according to the guide lines set by the No Child Left Behind Act.
