Amend the prom dress code to allow freedom of choice.

The dress code of the proms of Wilson County public schools dictates that males must wear tuxedos or suits and females must wear dresses. Being that many girls are uncomfortable wearing a dress, we ask for a change to be made to the policy, allowing these young ladies to wear formal attire other than the currently forced gender-specific and stereotypical dress.

      The school system should stop worrying so much about trivial things like the gender identities of students and focus more on education and a safe environment.
