* ''ComicBook/ArchieComics'' had a story arc revolving around this.
* Averted with the Eric Walters book ''Branded'', where school uniforms are announced early in the year after the bureaucracy has already decided on them and are phased in over a couple of months.
* ''Series/ICarly'' had this when Principal Franklin was kicked out.
* This routine happened in ''Webcomic/ElGoonishShive''. Principal Verruckt of Moperville North High School decided to have all of the students wear uniforms (apparently without consulting with parents, the local school board or anyone else) and put the policy into effect almost immediately. It's also a splendid example of WebcomicTime, since the policy was in place for less than a week InUniverse but covered ''3½ years''' worth of strips (most of which was taken by the birthday party arc).
* ''WesternAnimation/DannyPhantom'': Vlad Masters, the newly elected mayor, makes this a rule at the local high school, specifically to annoy PerkyGoth Sam, since she's a close friend/sidekick to Vlad's ArchEnemy, Danny.
* ''WesternAnimation/MyGymPartnersAMonkey'' had the episode "Uniformity", where Charles Darwin Middle School instates a prep-school uniform that causes everyone to act uncharacteristically genteel and proper (read: boring), in stark contrast to the students' usual antics. The uniform was instated in about a week and later revoked in less than a day.
