Is Our Dress Code Too Strict?

Mikaela Bartsch, Reporter

What do you think about school dress code? I mean, I’m not the only one that hates it. Right? I just don’t understand why some teachers follow the rules, and some don’t. Why do we even have a dress code when only half of the advisors care?

To a certain extent dress code is good to have, but it’s a little too strict sometimes. I believe it’s not fair that girls are not allowed to wear shorts and spaghetti straps. There are some days that are very hot, and it’s hard to sit in a class for 77 minutes with jeans and a T-shirt on.

I think that we should be able to wear shorts, and sometimes it is easier and cheaper to buy shorts. Some girls wear them all the time without getting in trouble anyway. So what’s the point? In addition to shorts, girls wear spaghetti straps and sheer/see-through shirts. I think see-through shirts is pushing it a little, while spaghetti straps are fine. Overall, I think think it’s okay just as long as no private parts are showing.

Now lets talk about boys. Hmm do they even have a dress code? What is it? I know that they are not allowed to walk around school without a shirt, but sometimes it happens. They are also not allowed to have their pants too low, but if you look at most of the boys, half of their butt is hanging out. If the faculty and staff are going to have it hard on the girls, they might as well give the boys a hard time too right?
