AJC: School uniforms: The look of change in ’09:

When the new school year started last week, students at Gwinnett County’s Simonton Elementary had a new look – a uniform look.

Hannah Montana T-shirts, blue jeans and sandals were out, replaced by collared shirts in black, yellow and white with coordinating shorts, skirts and slacks and closed-toe shoes.

Miles away in Clayton County, the trend toward uniform dress, which was already in the elementary and middle schools, became the countywide standard as it moved into the high schools.

My son, a senior in hgh school, has been wearing uniforms since sixth grade. I guess it’s only news when it hits suburban schools.
