Allen Lichtenstein of Nevada is strongly against schools dress codes. I agree with him too.
NO! The Supreme Court has said that students do not leave their constitutional rights at the schoolhouse door. Yet some school's dress codes restrict student's freedom of expression. Supporters claim that uniforms and dress codes improve discipline and increase student achievement. But there is little evidence to support this. Codes stifle individuality. While no one supports allowing clothing that is dangerous, disruptive or too revealing, many codes go too far. America has always prided itself on the individuals right to self-expression. That respect should extend to student clothing.
