Granada Hills Charter High School: Anti-Dress Code
"Why is it that such a strict dress code is enforced specifically more on girls but if a male walked into school with shorts that were not "fingertip plus an inch" they would not be dress coded? If a girl's collar bone, shoulder, or even leg is distracting, they are not the problem. Perhaps teaching males that females are NOT sexual objects would better benefit our corrupt society."
When I heard that my very own high school was having a meeting in which all questions would be addressed, I took it upon myself to speak for many if not all the girls at Granada and still, my question was not 'addressed'. If they won't do anything about it maybe it's time for us to do something for ourselves. Participating in this petition can possibly create some drastic changes in our dress code. It's time we fight for what we believe is right!
I understand that not all boys view girls as "sexual objects" or even see them in any sexually related way. This is exactly my point. The school has used this as an excuse for far too long to tell us female students what we can and cannot wear. This is 2016, high school male students know how to control themselves around: shoulders, legs, and bra straps.
*We are not asking that the entire dress code be completely removed but perhaps altering some of the illogical rules (i.e. bra straps, midriff, etc.) can better benefit the students as well as the school overall.
