Allentown starts new school year with uniform look
Students in the Allentown School District are getting the new year started with a new look.
A new rule requiring school uniforms went into effect Tuesday.
The issue of uniforms was the source of debate earlier this year.
Supporters say uniforms will create a better learning environment with fewer distractions.
Critics say the requirement will be a financial hardship for many parents in the district.
But officials say almost all of the students arrived at school Tuesday dressed in the proper uniforms.
