Are School Dress Codes Outdated?
A 4-year boy in Mont Belvieu, TX was excited about his first day of school. This was going to be his first time going to a real school. However, the staff at his school said he had to go home and could not return until he cut his hair. His mother said that he never had a hair cut. His hair is part of his identity. The boy’s mother plans on fighting the rule to get her son back into school.
This is just one example of some school dress codes that could be considered outdated. My son’s school has strict school uniform dress code. They send kids home if they are not wearing the right type of shirt or pants. Do you think there are dress codes in schools that could be a little outdated? Do you think the school was right for saying the boy could not go to school because his hair was as long as the girls in his class? Tell us in the comment section below.
