School dress codes are always prone to being problematic - but when one boy was suspended from school for wearing nail polish, an online petition started up...
Dress codes in schools have been called into question several times in the last few years...Mainly due to the fact they are often targeted towards outdated viewpoints.
In recent years, students have been calling out their schools for this specific reason.Especially when male teachers will send a girl out of class for violating the dress code.
The reasons they offer for this can be extremely problematic.Including the fact that certain outfits may be "distracting" to male students in the class.
However, despite more and more students calling out this kind of sexism...
It's rarely met with support from schools.
so schools can’t force students to wear a mask... but they can force girls to cover up when they wear a spaghetti strap tank top??? ok.— jocelyn vlores (@jocelyn vlores)1594785147.0
