DRESSCODE ISSUE

San Elijo Middle school should change the dress code because it is unfair for one gender, unfair for different students, and some clothing or accessories is not allowed because it might "represent gangs".

UNFAIR FOR GENDER: GIRLS

Dress code is unfair to girls because if you take a boy and a girl and tell them to wear, for example, some shorts that they used to wear, there would be a big difference in length.

Take a look yourself:

This basically shows that boys naturally wear shorts longer than the length for the "fingertip rule", unlike girls that wear shorts shorter than the length for the "fingertip rule". Girls have an opinion toward what length of shorts they are wearing and a vast majority prefers shorter shorts. In fact, we took a survey of which the results were ? Shorter shorts: ? Longer shorts. So, you may be wondering: Why is it unfair to girls? Well, it is definitely unfair for the girls as they have to change their preference in clothing and have to wear something that does not look very flattering on them.
