The Live Poll: 53% Against Uniforms
FlaglerLive | January 17, 2012
The Flagler County School Board will vote Tuesday evening, Jan. 17, on whether to adopt uniforms in all traditional public schools by next fall. The board discussed the matter in 2007, came close to requiring uniforms, only to drop the matter after facing an uproar. The board decided to stick with a dress code, disallowing certain types of clothing (low-riding shorts, mini-skirts, flip-flops, spaghetti straps, and so on) but refraining from imposing overly prescriptive wardrobes. At an Oct. 18 meeting, the school board decided to move forward with a survey of Flagler parents and residents on uniforms in a first step toward writing a uniform policy. Here’s your chance to influence the outcome.
