Why this petition matters

First of all, I recognise that I am a white person, and I will never fully understand the experiences minority people go through, and the important that culture can have to people (please message me if I am wrong about anything), but I know that it can be part of an upbringing, lifestyle, and identity. A school should have no place in telling students what cultures are and aren't allowed, culture should not come in the way of education, and it is disgusting that the school finds it acceptable to bring culture into the uniform war. It is disgusting that in 2021 we are still having to discuss these issues in our systems, and that people find it acceptable to discriminate against other human beings based on their race, culture, etc. 

It would be my recommendation that the rules be reviewed, and changed, to make a friendly environment for all, regardless of their upbringing and background.
