Honestly, the dress code “movement” needs to stop; the rules are obviously never going to change. It’s funny how the author of the dress code letter seems to contradict them self. They specifically say NOT to judge yourself, when they are judging them self by looking in the mirror in the first place! Lets get real. The only reason why someone would wear a short clothing is to look attractive. Honestly, it is a distraction. That’s what short skirts/shorts are made for: getting attention.
It’s fair to say that her words aren’t a surprise. They’re in line with Jefferson’s strict dress code policies, but are they really reasonable? If one were to actually follow her instructions, they might have to change into a robe and headscarf before they could come to school. Everyone’s ideas of appropriateness and acceptability are different, and what an adolescent sees as perfectly normal might set off a “red flag” when seen by a teacher.
