As students, we are surely grateful for the privilege that is a free education. However, at times education tends to be overshadowed by minor distractions such as dress code infractions and the possession of chin hair. Rather than focusing so much on these minor occurrences, administration needs to quit treating students like criminals for simply wearing the clothes that they rightfully own and for wearing our chin hair that we were naturally born with. In my opinion, if we were allowed to express ourselves and feel natural at school , learning enthusiasm would be boosted. This is a violation of our right to express ourselves, as well as a hindrance to the amazing educational possibilities that could await...

      Thanks to all the supporters that signed this petition, the dress code has now been altered! This is a great moment for all students in this district as they now have a little more freedom of expression. I thank you all that signed for helping make this possible, and I hope this movement inspires students across the nation to realize that although we are young, we still have a voice!

      This is very important topic because draconian dress code rules have no place in public schools and are far more distracting to the learning environment than isolated incidents that will occur from time to time regardless of the rules. We live in a society that encourages people and children to act a certain way, and yet we model public school policy off of the outdated preceding generations.

      Because this is school not practice for out now FOR PROFIT prisons! Kids should be able to express themselves within reason.

      Who cares if they are wearing a belt as long as their pants aren't falling down, or if their hair is long, or if their shirt has a collar. Teach these kids instead of just trying to dominate them.
