Have you noticed school uniform is in the news? School uniforms are a hot topic. Your school corporation’s school board and administrators are seriously considering school uniforms. To be fair, they want your input. Your class has been asked to look at arguments both for and against uniforms, and explore school uniforms and “standardized dress” to develop your own suggestions for a change. They are willing to compromise if you can persuade them that your ideas will be fair and are backed by research. School uniforms have been a hot topic in the local area recently. Students are very adamant about their rights to dress as they please, and are sometimes vocal about their objections to current school dress codes. Using the students’ interests and passion as a driving force, this web quest allows them to see both sides of the issue and develop their own school uniform while trying to appease advocates both for and
While this project is largely about uniforms and uniform design, history also plays a large role in my opinion. I’m going to do my best to keep it both educational and interesting, in hopes that I can help my fellow feu better appreciate the roots of our great franchise. This includes not only the uniforms of the feu, but also the less obvious in other university.

BACKGROUND OF THE STUDY
School uniform is an outfit—a set of standardized clothes—worn primarily for an educational institution. They are common in primary and secondary schools in many nations. When used, they form the basis of a school’s dress code.
Traditionally, school uniforms have tended to be subdued and professional. Boys’ uniforms often consist of dark short or long trousers and light-colored shirt, often with a tie. Girls’ uniforms vary greatly between countries and schooling systems, but typically consist of a dress or a blouse worn either with a skirt or culottes or under a pinafore. In some countries, gender-specific uniforms have been a point of contention, with some schools permitting female students to choose either skirts or trousers while still requiring male students to wear trousers. The use of a blazer or suit-like jacket for either gender is also fairly common, especially in countries with relatively cold weather.
As everyone knows that uniform is the most important things that need to be consider in schools and Universities here in the Philippines. A uniform are very important and fosters traits which are very necessary for a person as an individual and an organization as a whole to thrive and prosper.
Wearing uniform is smart and simple, allowing a variety of styles provided that the basic colours of green and gold for indoor uniform are maintained.
This paper wants some students and some higher persons to be aware that it is more appropriate that every Institute has different uniforms to recognize each Institute easily.
Background of FEU
The Far Eastern University is a non-secretarial, private university in the Philippines.. Far Eastern University was founded in 1934 when the Far Eastern College and the Institute of Accounts, Business and Finance (IABF) merged. Far Eastern College, founded in 1919, had been a liberal arts college in Quiapo; the IABF had been established (originally under the name Institute of Accountancy) by Nicanor Reyes, Sr., head of the Department of Economics of the University of the Philippines, with a number of other prominent educators in 1928. IABF had been originally predominately used by night students, and the new university, which was supported by the tuition provided by its students rather than government grants, soon demonstrated that a private university was financially sustainable in the Philippines. The Far Eastern University aims to be a private university of choice in Asia. Committed to the highest intellectual, moral and cultural standards, it strives to produce great students in the future.
Statement of the Problem:
The following are the problems in FEU uniform:
Ø Frequently changing of FEU uniform
Ø P.E uniform
Ø School uniform
-White blouse w/a green checkered linings
-With a ribbon
- A green checkered balloon skirt
-white fitted blouse
-pencil cut, green checkered skirt
-white fitted thicker cloth blouse
-pencil cut, green skirt.
Confusing school uniform
· The students love mixing uniform like:
- A present blouse paired w/ green checkered
- Present blouse paired w/ 2007-2008 skirt.
Ø Different style of uniform and it is all applicable in all courses/institute
- In order to organize this situation we proposed to have a one style of uniform in every institute:
Ø Uniform in FEU is not organized.
- Even though FEU have a new style uniform for freshmen students they still permitted to wear the old style of uniform.
- So for freshmen who doesn’t like the new style of uniform is just a waste of money?
Ø Proper P.E uniform:
- Because what’s the point of selling the shirts of cooperative store if it isn’t allowed to wear inside the campus and the students are suffering to proceed in gate 4 & they will have a violation because they are not wearing a proper school uniform.
Recommendation and Benefits
The proposed Quality Improvement Plan focused on these school uniform standards of university
1. Revision for School uniform:

These school uniform standards are designed to help ensure that the students are well-prepared, both physically and mentally, for academic and social success here in FEU.
Students should come to school in clean clothes daily.
Clothing should not be too low, high, tight, loose, or transparent.
No logos or labels should be exposed.
Items that are too short, tight, or worn due to student growth and usage must be replaced. Worn clothing includes but is not limited to holes, tears, frays and stains.
Students may be required to wear specific School Uniform items for special events.
Winter accessories such as hats, mittens/gloves and scarves must be removed upon entering the school. Fashion hats are not permitted.
Shoes: All shoes should be flat, rubber bottomed. Due to daily Physical Education.
Socks: Socks or tights are required due to daily Physical Education and Yoga. All socks and tights should be in complimentary school colors.
Pants: Khaki or navy blue pants, Capri’s, shorts or skirts. No skirts may be worn. Shorts and skirts must be at least fingertip length or longer when standing. Pants, Capri’s, shorts and skirts must be worn at the waist.
Pants must be loose fitting and fit properly. Not drag the ground, not rolled up, no cut in any manner. Not excessively frayed at hem; should not be too tight, baggy, sagging, ripped, excessively flared, wide leg skate style, form fitting, or worn in a way that exposes undergarments.
2. Revision of standardization of School Uniform
What’s the point of selling the shirts of cooperative store if it isn’t allowed to wear inside the campus and the students are suffering to proceed in gate 4 & they will have a violation because they are not wearing a proper school uniform?
So that the organization shirts that bought by the students will not be wasted. The student can wear there organization shirts.
Uniforms or standardized attire for students in FEU is necessary. There may be time in the future when cultural events or changes occur that may hinder the ability of our students to maximize their potential. If indicators point to a need for uniformity to resolve the issue.
Students should dress in a way that is conducive to the learning environment and not distracting to others. The dress code should clearly define the expectations for personal appearance. The policy of FEU should then empower school staff with the flexibility to enforce the code with appropriate discretion.
Since FEU only have a standard uniform for almost all the institutes, our proposal will help everyone to distinguish on what institute the student belongs. Different styles of uniform will add fashion to students. FEU students will be happier if this proposal will be implemented.
