I was having a conversation with a colleague at my high school the other day. My school has a very liberal dress code and no uniforms. The code was changed a couple years ago so that now shorts must just "cover the cheeks". The girls really wear short shorts and the boys also sometimes come in with their pants around their thighs. My colleague and I have both noticed that girls especially are ignoring the dress code and wearing inappropriate clothing. My colleague is a man and I am a woman. I say we should do what we are supposed to do and ask them to go the office when we see they are dressed improperly for a learning environment. My colleague says that girls are free spirits and should not be told what to wear. He also says male teachers get in trouble for sending female students to the office because it means they were looking at the female student. I would love to know what other teachers think. Do you think a student should adhere to the dress code? Do you think there should even be one and should a male teacher have the same responsibility to send a female student to the office as a female teacher?
