S. Panola School District Considers School Uniforms

Parents and students in the South Panola School District are being polled on whether the school system should adopt a new uniform policy.
BATESVILLE, MS (abc24.com) - There's a clothing debate underway in North Mississippi over school uniforms.

Parents and students in the South Panola School District are being polled on whether the school system should adopt a new uniform policy.

The district just sent out a survey asking students, parents and teachers to take part in it.

Parents are being polled on what they think about uniforms and why. South Panola's superintendent says so far 60 percent are in favor of school uniforms.

We talked with students who told us their schools sent a survey home with their report cards.

"Most people, it's half and half. Some think it's a good idea. Some don't. I think it's a good idea though," says South Panola High School senior Abby Jones. "If you're poor then you don't have to worry about fitting in with popular kids, just wear uniforms."

There's a public meeting on this issue scheduled for later this month. It's set for Tuesday, April 23rd at 6 p.m. at Batesville Junior High School.
