Why School Uniforms?
- Put each student on a level playing field, regardless of socio-economic class (similar to what the ihram does for the muhrim)
- Help to create a sense of unity among students, foster the building of a community, give students a sense of belonging and school pride
- Provide students with a sense of being in a professional environment, one where discipline is valued
- Reduce the cost parents/guardians spend on buying school clothing
- Reduce peer pressure, by cutting down on students wanting to wear the latest designer clothing
- Reduce time in getting ready for school each day
- Improve school safety, by having staff quickly identify students versus intruders.
