Today's society has been sexualizing women for not only their clothing but, their sizes of their bodies and the clothing they put on themselves. Why is okay for the women to be treated like this but when men wear similar things it’s acceptable? Schools need to make their dress codes more flexible, meaning they need to make all rules apply to every student. “Maybe instead of teaching girls they should cover themselves up we should be teaching boys that we’re not just sex objects that you can look at and derive pleasure”.
It seems that the school system is always mistreating them when it comes to certain things. Black girls have been dressed coded for their hair, black kids are afraid of getting targeted by the white students in the school for being different, and also white teachers show racism to the black students. In an article by Maya Allen, a group of schoolgirls were suspended for having natural hair. The principal called their natural hair "untidy, un-groomed, and unkempt." To the principal, the hair didn't look like it was brushed for days, which is against school rules.
It is no secret that the Dress codes target girls, to the dress codes being exposing bra straps, showing collarbone, wearing a simple tank top, dyeing hair, and piercings. When girl are told to be modest they are being sexualized. There should be nothing wrong with a girl wearing a comfortable shirt to school; but of course the shirt shows parts of the students’ collarbone, she cannot wear it again to school. For boys it’s simply your pants are too low pull them up and be on your way. On the other hand girls are taken out of their classes to call home for another pair of clothes.
There is also a problem when it comes to a student reporting that they were sexually assaulted in a school. There are set rules in High School that require teachers to report sexual assaults statistics, but many feel unprepared on how to deal with the problem after reporting it. Without having proper plans and precautions placed
Sex Education in Schools Comprehensive sex education courses are a controversial topic facing the educational system all around the world. Typically this course is taught in public schools starting as early as upper elementary to begin addressing sexually related topics such as puberty in both male and females, sexual health as well as sexuality. However, some educators, parents, and students argue this course should not be taught in schools at all! Which in result, is why sex education has ultimately gone nowhere as education has advanced. Factors such as religious principles, sex being viewed as an inappropriate topic as well as taboo, and sex being a topic that cannot be escaped hold the course back from becoming more, and fully providing the necessary information to understand this natural process.
School’s dress codes now and days are sexist towards females, indicating a female should hide her body for the actions of young immature boy who gets aroused easily. While school dress code might be useful in schools to teach younger generations about how to dress in the workforce for the future, but that’s not the case anymore. As the years pass by the dress codes are being strictly enforce against females. Such as in the article written by Laura Bates, “How Schools Dress Codes Shame Girls and Perpetuate Rape Culture “Girls are repeatedly told the reason they have to cover up to avoid ‘distracting’ their
Do we as learners think having an enforced dress code interferes with student education and/or life at school? Some facilitators and parents have enforced different dress code regulations to keep the learners looking to professional standards as much as possible. Other facilitators, parents, and even learners disagree with dress code policies. The way teens dress has become a daily argument in homes and schools. In your opinion should these dress code regulations be enforced among learners whether it is gender enforced or school wide forced?
“These children may struggle with ideas of perfection, eating disorders, and body image in their adulthood. Pageants send a message that looks and appearance are more important than brains and education.” (Children Beauty Give Children Unrealistic Expectations) Children will struggle with their body images and most importantly, they will put appearance first that education. “Additionally, dressing children up with adult clothes and makeup appeals to sexual predators, placing them at risk of falling victim to a pedophile.”
The idea of residential schools, the frustration of students in the environment, as well as hatred for the school system would have definitely drove many of the students to continue their defiant behaviours. The fear of losing their language; their culture; and most importantly, their identity, further increased their determination to resist the force put upon them in residential schools. Despite facing harsh punishments such as a variety of forms of corporal punishment, the idea of showing opposition towards a subject that they did not comply with was a much stronger force that drove students to engage in acts of resistance than the force of fear that the residential schools attempted to inflict toward them. As a result of this, many students were able to resist the desired outcome that the government hoped for, in spite of the
Most of the girls are too afraid or scared that they will get in trouble or miss out on something important, because that is how most girl gendered people act. The girl genders are judged more in society, having to meet certain roles of following the rules, no skipping, and getting good grades. If a girl is seen skipping school, it will not just show that she skipped, it will show her parents are bad at parenting, their child needs boundaries, and that
Those three concepts has undermine the confidence, integrity and maturely of these young high school because the root of the affect is so damaging.

Still Failing at Fairness by Sadker and Zittelmen explained that same ideas that young girls are not encouraged nor given the same opportunity as the boys.

In “Tottenville High School in Staten Island, New York, handed out 200 detention slips for dress code violations… about 90% of which went to female students(Dockterman 1)”. Why would only women be the ones being caught for violating the terms of the dress code? It is not because they are the only ones but, because they have been taught as a young child, that they must be proper, and anything less than that is inappropriate. (Dockterman 1) also states that “rules for girls are blatantly sexual in nature, cover your skin, but are not for boys.” (Dockterman 1) also points out that this is in violation of “Title lX, the law that forbids gender discrimination in schools.”
Dress code Belleville West has had a dress code since 2002 and students and parents have hated it . The students from west think it is a waste of time and the nonsense it has for them. Most students think it is a appearance or even to try to reduce violence. Mostly male student think is it because of women student, and why there is a dress code. “There is a dress code so people won 't wear stupid and inappropriate things to school,” Senior, Keyairre Gaston said.
How are students supposed to change if you have no clothes and the school clothes available are embarrassing because they never fit. Most students can tell that the person got in trouble for the clothing choices they made that morning when they see someone wearing school clothes.
My mother has always told me that I was, “born in the wrong generation.” I’ve been described as being divergent compared to most teenagers my age, and I tend to have a different way of thinking. Because of this asset, I find myself constantly losing friends due to my disinterest and lack of conformity to the things they label as cool (drugs, sex, alcohol). That being said, my biggest concern upon attending Sweet Briar, is that I will not be compatible with anyone at the school, in addition to the abundance of females at the school. At times, females can be known to be more dramatic than males, and that can cause some issues.
