Dress code at BHS
Blytheville high school has made alot of changes since school has started including dress code. Meaning girls will be sent home and get detention for wearing leggings and boys will be sent home for slides, as well as detention. Things like body harrassment for thicker girls versus a size 4 will be sent home and asked to change. Instead of focusing on education they have chosen to focus more on what we wear. While other school districts around us have more relaxed dress codes which results in better test scores and grades than us.This plays a part in our education because a student who gets sent home to change are more than likely to not return to school resulting in missed lectures, learning opportunities & absences.
Sept 26, I will hopefully be speaking at the School board meeting.
Please help me by signing this petition and bring this concern to their attention.
