I wonder if I’m the only one tired of Clovis Unified School District, and the people supporting its conservative dress code masquerading their attempts to force their archaic perceptions of how men and women should present themselves as the district preparing us for society and the workforce.
It is almost laughable how absurd this argument is. The only establishment in 2016 that may not hire someone or that may discriminate against someone because their hair is too long or because their ear is pierced is probably CUSD. I can say the greatest detraction from my learning experience has been trying to get my district to at the very least comply with California law, a surprisingly difficult task.
Another argument that I am tired of hearing regarding the excessively conservative CUSD dress code is the argument that CUSD has always had a strict dress code, and students have no right to break the status quo. This is simply an appeal to tradition which is a logical fallacy meaning its non-substantive, and has no merit as an argument. Not to mention the fact that students have every right to have a voice in the rules that govern a substantial part of their lives.
