Change island school dress code
At island school the girls are forced to wear clothing 2 inches above the knee in 90 degree heat. We only have 4 air conditioned rooms and some of the girls don't even have any classes in those rooms. We suffer and sweat all day long in our uncomfortable jeans. The reason why the school won't change the dress code is because it is destracting to boys, but that is sexist. The girls don't get to wear athletic clothes (yoga pants/leggings), but boys get to wear whatever they want. It's not fair for the girls who have to wear pants and jeans every day because we can't find shorts anywhere that fit the requirements (except surf shorts and we still kind of want to look like girls!) When we are hot and uncomfortable it is hard to concentrate and we aren't as productive as we could be otherwise.
If you feel that our school dress code is hot and uncomfortable and are looking for other, cooler and more comfortable options, please sign our petition!
