Cleveland Schools Chief Seeks Uniforms For Students


Cleveland, OH - A school official in Cleveland wants to give the large, urban public school district a new look. And this time it's not about renovating buildings. The school system's top official is working on a plan to require school uniforms.

Eugene Sanders leads the school system that has about 58-thousand students.

The uniforms will be phased in at elementary schools this fall. Students who qualify for vouchers will be able to pick up the clothing at their schools. Items will be available at stores such as Target and Wal-Mart.

When Sanders was superintendent of the Toledo public schools in 2004 he established a similar dress code.
