Do u think that dress codes should be more or less strict? PLEASE RESPOND! I HAVE A REPORT DUE ON THIS!!Did you know that having a strict dress code is more expensive than having a lenient one? A rule at St. John the Baptist school is that your shorts have to be as long or longer than your middle finger when you put your hands to your side. Longer shorts like this cost more, for example longer shorts at www.outdoorsplusmore.com are $21.99 but in contrast shorter (but not too short) shorts, at www.khols.com for only $13.20. People are already paying a lot of money to send their kids to a private school, why should they have to pay even more for a strict dress code? This is just one of the many reasons why dress codes should be more lenient.
Why canít girls show small portions of their stomachs when they raise their hands? Sister Julian (principal at St. Johnís) says that itís because itís a distraction, but who is it distracting? A poll at youdebate.com says that itís mostly males who are being distracted. If this is true, than why do the girls have to get different clothes just because some guy canít control himself, if they canít do this then whatís going to happen when they get a job and women are dressed in a similar matter, are they going to be so distracted they cant get there work done there either?
Another important issue is the fact that we arenít going to use the clothes in the summer-so people buy other clothes-this isnít necessary but wonít the kids with the out-of-style clothes get made fun of and teased? This can be very hard for someone to handle, this kind of pressure and tension is one of the leading causes of youth suicide.

i agree, guys need to learn to control themselves, but as its going its not gonna be anytime soon.  It's not the girls fault that they might be attractive, and really the only dress code rule that should be up is just to have the main areas covered and that you can't have profanity.  i think girls should be allowed to have their stomachs showing a little.  not a total stomach shirt, but allowed showing when they raise their hands.  Not too much, though

[color=blue]As a graduated student from a school that has now turned into the worst place to be, I think that dress codes are a violation to our rights to free speech and individuality.  I think that schools should have  a limit on what people can wear.  For example, I think that girls shouldn't be allowed to wear anything that is TOO short or TOO revealing, but what does a belly button reveal anyway?  I think that students should be allowed to wear what they want to school as long as it isn't showing ALL skin.  The whole "fingertip rule" is also something that needs to be adjusted.  Most school officials don't understand that girls that are around a size 0-3 don't have clothes that are long.  Being a size 1, I know that when buying shorts these days, they are shorter than they were back when school officials were growing up.  The fingertip rule shouldn't apply because 1) we're smaller, 2) they don't make shorts long enough, and 3) it doesn't reveal anything but LEG which is something you can see anywhere.  Having dress codes isn't a good idea because people aren't learning anything by having it.  The REAL world doesn't have a law on what you can wear.  Going on interviews people know what they should and shouldn't wear.  Police don't say things like "that skirt is too short", "you shouldn't be wearing that around town", or anything else like that.  [color=purple]All dress codes do is limit our individuality and try to make us act like people we aren't.  What are we learning by being someone's pawn to be told what to wear, what to say, and who to hang out with.  That doesn't teach us anything at all.  The high school I just graduated from is now converting to a strict dress code.  Cut off shorts can not be worn because strings may hang off of them.  (WHAT'S THIS ABOUT?)[color=red]  I never thought that I would have to say this, but school dress codes are TOO STRICT and need to be lessened because it isn't teaching us anything at all!
