Dress Code Change

This petition had 746 supporters

Every day that you go to school, a handful of teenagers are pulled from learning for dress code reasons. Whether it be jeans that are ripped a little too high, shoulder exposure, or colored hair, your students' learning is at stake. It's a struggle for people to "dress for success" when all of their clothes are deemed "distracting" by a school administrator. Focus less about the cloth covering our bodies and focus more on the learning itself for a more successful future to the students. I like to dye my hair; it's a form of self expression. Tomball High School is restricting hair dying of "unnatural" colors, including grey or silver dye jobs, as well as platinum blonde. Not to mention that the teachers and administrators don't follow the dress code either. There are several teachers with small nose studs, visible tattoos, and even some that have "unnatural" hair colors. As teenagers, we want to find out who we are through self expression. How am I supposed to express myself if school doesn't allow me to? They tried to send me home for my nose stud and hair on the second day of school. I'm going to fight for what I and many other students believe in.
