Emma McLeod started this petition to AS STUDENTS and

North Desoto requires students to wear strict, expensive, and sexist uniforms. As a public school, I and some of my fellow students believe that uniforms should not be required. We believe that we deserve the right to be expressive through clothing and not forced to conform to their standards of what's "acceptable." We are the future generation of change, it starts now. The photos attached to this petition are uniforms that technically violate the school dress code policy. One which the student was dress coded because of the COLOR OF HER HAIR. She has also gotten in trouble for the amount of makeup shes worn and her ear piercings. Below is a small portion of our dress code.
