SOME STUDENTS and parents have already proclaimed the new voluntary uniform policy at Shipley's Choice Elementary School a success. On the first day, nearly 100 students came in uniforms -- khaki or navy slacks with white or blue polo shirts for boys and a white blouse and plaid jumper or skirt for girls. But the majority of the Millersville school's 440 students gave the uniforms a thumbs down. It just might be too early to claim victory.While uniforms can reduce some students' misguided efforts to outdo each other with expensive designer-label clothes, they don't eliminate the problem.
