In the United States, the implementation of school uniforms began following ten years of research indicating the effectiveness of private schools . Some state-school reformers cited this research to support policies linked to private and Catholic school success. However, within the Catholic school literature, school uniforms have never been acknowledged as a primary factor in producing a Catholic school effect.   Some public-school administrators began implementing uniform policies to improve the overall school environment and academic achievement of the students. This is based on the assumption that uniforms are the direct cause of behavioral and academic outcome changes. 
The last thing you want to do is get up early in the morning to iron the wrinkles out of your child's school uniforms or spend hours on the weekends scrubbing grass stains out of the knees of your child's uniform pants. When shopping for clothing, read the tags to see what the fabric's care tasks entail. Wrinkle-resistant and no-iron fabrics are ready to wear as soon as they come out of the dryer. If your child tends to be messy, dark colors hide stains more easily than other colors. No matter which fabric you choose, be sure to follow the care labels properly to keep your child's uniforms looking sharp throughout the entire school year.
