"Do you think public school districts should enforce dress codes?"
I am a single parent LITERALLY and it costs me MORE to buy both UNIFORM & PLAY CLOTHES for my daughter every year for school. She is growing so fast. She is 8.5 years old and is to tall so must wear 10/12 clothes so this year alone I wound up having to get rid of all of the clothes I bought her the previous year and buying new ones & New Shoes. It is more of a hassle than anything. My daughter was in first grade is PV when I got a letter saying I put a sweater on her that was striped OVER HER SCHOOL SHIRT.. I only did it because she was cold .. and next time she would have to serve a detention... OVER MY DEAD BODY will MY first grade child THAT I DRESS serve a detention.. They should be more concerned with HYGIENE than school clothing for elementary students.. They have headlice running around this county 365 days a year its crazy..
Dress codes are good and certainly less expensive in the long run for families. For the anti dress code folks, unfortunately some kids and parents alike lack the maturity, control, fashion taste and social skills to stop wearing inappropriate clothing to school. The subject has nothing to do with freedom and rights, but good common sense and a bit of taste other then in one's mouth.
