7:39 am
we begin process of what it would look like and how we would implement it and have been there for seven years. >> how would you describe this changed how kids interact, a lot of us talk about issue of peer pressure and dressing a certain way, specifically girls, also boys as well. do you think this has had a positive outcome on how kids interact at school? >> absolutely. it eliminates pressure to keep up with kids and parents buy certain designer clothing or whatever is trendy. they are all within the uniforms. helps to level the playing field in that respect and reduces distractions tremendously. >> i want to ask you a question, you said there were no uniforms now there are. talk about the enforcement of when there was no uniform policy
7:40 am
compared to now it is a lot easier. how on earth did you possibly have time to enforce that and deal with the parents at the same time? >> very difficult. judgments of what was appropriate and what they could or couldn't wear. what is too tight and those questions came up. in each school day we spent 30 minutes of the beginning of everyday whether what they had on was appropriate. >> in i am sure you had flak from parents as well? >> sometimes. there were some parent that is didn't agree or more so the students thought it was appropriate. that is why it was so important to get parents to define what we wanted our school culture to be. >> wisdom said earlier we talked
7:41 am
about at length in our editorial meeting we have everyday after the show. it comes down to uniforms aside, when you did have to enforce the dress code, personal expression how do you walk that line? how do you walk that line and decide well, this is not going to be appropriate. if it is not appropriate, what happens then? does the parent get called from work to come pick up their child? >> we spent a lot of time in the beginning how we expect students to come to school. there are students that press the envelope. we find usually the parent didn't know they put that on and very receptive to bringing them something. >> i know we are out of time,
7:42 am
why isn't more schools gone this way? >> here in prince georges' county, great majority have gone to uniforms, only two high schools that do not have mandatory uniforms. one of the biggest advantages also, this assists us greatly with security measures. very easy at dismissal time to spot someone that doesn't belong on campus when they don't have a uniform on. >> thank you, sir. >> thank you. this was a big talk yesterday as we were getting ready for this morning's show. you guys as parents know what it is like. >> it does come under the personal expression.
7:43 am
>> i think that is what the parent is for. even if you don't have a dress code, parents should know what is appropriate. if you are sending your kids to school, it is up to you as a parent to be responsible enough. >> what he said was interesting. i remember one time getting mad at my middle daughter just because she changed her hair going to school, sorry, sklar. they want to express themselves. sometimes they put something in the bag or do whatever to change before they get to school. >> someone brought up to me, melanie alnwick brought up yesterday, this might be a good time where we put that in their minds, your job is to be a student and dress professionally like mommy and daddy do. >> tell us what you think. >> i appreciate we have a dress code, otherwise, wisdom might be
