Let’s talk about our Greenbrier Junior High dress code. There are many reasons I am against our dress code and I believe it shouldn’t be so strict. Dress code is a set of rules telling us what we can and cannot wear to school, which I think is absolutely ignorant.
Firstly, we come as students to learn at school and get an education, we don’t come to have our class time taken by teachers who want to stop us in the halls and say “I can see above your knees!’, like OH NO the world is going to end!

Overall, school dress code is, in my opinion, extremely irrelevant and a huge waste of time. I can understand you can’t show up to school in a bikini, but we can’t even wear shorts when it’s 90 degrees outside! What in the world! If anything, I think our Junior High would be at
