SNAK: Are dress codes a good idea or not?


this is Sophia she was sent home from school because her outfit was inappropriate the dress was too short while in Denmark there are rarely rules about how students must dress students in the USA often have to follow a school dress code one of the main reasons for implementing such dress codes is to create a school environment where all students can focus on learning so no distractions that does seem like a good idea doesn’t it well let’s take a look at some dress code rules that many students have to comply with bra straps must not show the collarbone and shoulders must be covered shorts skirts and dresses must be no shorter than 4 inches above the knees these dress codes are mostly written in a gender-neutral language leaving out pronouns like he or she but the fact is that the dress code rules put a lot more restrictions on girls wardrobes than on boys also nearly every time a student is accused of violating the dress code that student is a girl she is then sent out of class to change Sofia missed three tests a day because she had to wait at the principal’s office for a change of clothes school boards and principals say that this must happen because bare collarbones and shoulders are too distracting for boys in the classroom and that their education is compromised the girls and their parents say that the dress codes are sexist objectifying and that sending the girls out of class compromises their education so who is right our dress codes in school a good idea or not do you think they are sexist and who do you think should decide what you can wear to school
