From my understanding, from educators I work with. It is against the law to enforce uniform policy in a manner of punishment to the student. I think that is stupid and most disruptive to a childs education. If STL Public Schools want to enforce uniform policy, then maybe they need to just ask for tuition from the goverment to pay for the uniforms upfront. You would be suprised, what some of the non-profit organizations do not provide for these Catholic Schools and other Private Schools. The government pays for. If you are a tax payer such as myself, then you should have the right to express your concern to the school and the government on why punishment is being enforced on student who can not afford their own uniforms or their parents. We say one thing about our children in today's society as for as them dropping out of school, killing, and etc..., but then we make school time so stressful for them, and even more stressful for them to go home either to a single parent or a drug addict parent. That's a very good way of pushing students away or loosing their ambition. So you all think you should punish and keep other students out of population because of uniforms not being enforced? I think society and people of administration really need to think about caring and not so much of punishing all the time. I think administrations and the STL Board of Education has meetings in private about punishment. It seems that's all people ever think about now days. We are so caught up on the wrong children are doing, and being scared of children; we forget about home visits, talking to a child. Learning or even wanting to find out what's going on in a child's life that they can not afford a uniform. Hell, where is the money from all this gambling in the world today for our schools. I say the schools should be able to help all those that have been out of uniform for the first month of school or atleast two months, or I say take the time to try and find out. Why they are not in uniforms. Sorry, but I will stress this concern and matter to everyone. But to answer your ?, yes, Clyde C Miller Career Academy stresses uniform policy, and it's bullcrap.
