Students get in trouble for several dress code violations because school dress code is too strict. Mostly dealing with shorts, shirts, sometimes backpacks, and uniforms. These are some of the biggest issues in school that teachers and the school districts need to understand.
No matter what a student wears to school it doesn’t block or contribute weather a student will learn or not, so if a student wants to wear a crop top to school they should be able to wear it if a girl decides to wear shorts to school she should be able to wear it. Sometime boys might feel it’s too hot to come to school in a t-shirt and decides to wear a tank top he should be able to wear it and not have to serve a consequence. No matter how much schools have dress codes students will try to outbreak those rules.

According to Grace Chen of the Public School Review, uniforms may result in students turning to “other avenues of self-expression that may be viewed as even more inappropriate than clothing” (Ethos, professional credibility). This includes a nontraditional hairstyle, make up, or acting out towards authority at school or at home. Students at Bishop O’Dowd used to be able to express their individuality more before the enforcement of Bishop O’Dowd outerwear. Before the induction of such outerwear, students still had to wear their Bishop O’Dowd polo, but could wear different kinds of jackets and sweatshirts that indicated particular interest.
