It has come to my attention that the “vital” topic regarding dress code in public schools has yet to be diminished. How is it that we are so concerned with the leggings on a girl, the long hair on a boy, or a pierced nose and not equally apprehensive of the education students are receiving?
Apparently these factors are significant enough to actually remove students from the classroom and have them wait in the office until their guardian brings them a change of clothes. As if that isn’t absurd enough, students are having a difficult time expressing themselves as individuals due to this controversy.
When I attended high school, I would walk on campus and be more worried about the clothes I was wearing than the test I was about to take. There should be a dress code, but students will follow it only when it becomes rational and less restrictive.
