    A common plague affecting schools across America is the dress code, and dress codes should be removed from American Schools because they restrict personal freedom, including symbolic speech; they disrupt class; they are more effort than they’re worth to enforce; and they send mixed messages about the body. First, dress codes restrict personal freedom. A dress code by definition limits clothes that an individual can wear to school. Sometimes, it is reasonable; you shouldn’t wear a bikini to school, but sometimes the restrictions are arbitrary and can end up restricting freedom of speech, specifically symbolic speech. For example, a school in Tennessee told a girl she couldn’t wear a shirt with a pro-LGBTQ+ message on it. In the past, the Supreme…

    Recently in Kentucky a girl was sent home because, her outfit revealed her collarbone. This doesn’t make sense as there is nothing wrong with a collarbone showing, it's not in any way expressing nudity. Then, the school goes on to state that the collarbone is merely a reference point.

Dress codes are a way to promote humbleness, and…

    I am writing you a letter in regard to the school’s dress code. I believe you have done a great job at fixing certain issues within the student body. But I also believe that these rules are and have always been too strict. There is a fine line between what is considered appropriate and what is not, and the majority of the time, what is considered an “inappropriate” outfit is merely someone's day-to-day Dressing style. For example, many of the young men that roam these halls enjoy wearing tank…
