  1. People like to argue about looking professional and having dress rules in adult settings and i promise most schools have a stricter dress code than any place I’ve ever worked. I’ve been sent home to change clothes in something I would wear to a job interview now.

  2. I want to support the students and parents who are protesting this absurd dress code that even includes which colors a student can wear. Instead of focusing on education, the school board wants to focus on clothes. It wants to prevent individual expression and make school an exercise in oppression to their Nazi like dictates. The 1950's are over and along with it are gender roles in most clothes.I have read that a student was threatened with arrest when he posted on Facebook against the dress code, saying he could be charged with terrorism (although he did not advocate violence). It is clear that it is time for this school board to go….to hell
