Dress code decisions

Over the summer break, county administration decided to alter the dress code of high schools in Columbia County. Dress code violations are punishable first by a warning and trading in your clothes with scrubs to getting detention. Dozens of Greenbrier High School students have gotten scrubbed and have something to say about it.

“I’ve been dress coded 14 times,” sophomore Mackenzie Smith says. “When I get dress coded, I get annoying because I see other people wearing the same thing. It sexualizes girls and is not enforced equally.”

This year the students of GHS have had lots of run ins with no ripped jeans, even with tights underneath and leggings with skirts deemed too short.

“I believe many [rules] are irrelevant and unnecessary,” senior Richard Howard says. “I don’t feel  it’s one-hundred percent sexist because now guys have been dress coded, but I do feel more girls will always be dress coded than guys.”

Columbia County administrators put the rules into effect at the beginning of the 2016 school year. During the first week of school, students were found ranting about the “injustice” of dress code on multiple social media applications.

    This article does an amazing job of showing how dress code rules have been more enforced.

    It was nice to see it from a guy’s perspective and a girl’s.

    I really like your article because it addresses something almost everyone has heard of. Though I have not been dress coded myself, my friends and people in my classes have been for the most unneeded and useless things. I also like how you got perspectives from both genders because it gives a broader view of the topic.

    This is very well written. It’s short and gets right to the point, love it!
