There are a lot of students and even parents that argue the dress code. Administrators try to enforce it, but it can cause a lot of problems. Students express themselves differently through their clothing. By wearing band t-shirts like motley crue, def leppard, billie eilish, ice spice, and a lot of others. They can also express themselves by wearing crop tops or baby tees. There are also schools that prohibit sweatpants, sweatshirts, leggings, or any athletic attire. Schools state that it makes it “easier to hide drugs.”
Girls face a lot of the heat when it comes to the dress code especially when the weather gets warmer. Shirts can’t show your shoulders, have straps skinner than two fingers, skirts and shorts have to be fingertip length. People say that the dress code sexualizes female students.
Boys can be at practice for their sport and be shirtless, but girls can’t wear certain tank tops or bras when it is 100 degrees out. This is a double standard and is completely unfair. If the boys are able to be shirtless then the females should be able to wear their sport bras and tank tops.
Do you believe that the dress code targets girls?
Should the dress code be changed?
