As a teenager, clothing is a very large role in your life. After all, your style portrays your personality and the crowd that you hang out with. Most teens spend nearly all of their income on buying the next fashion. But today, teens have to second think their purchases for they may not be able to wear them at their school. Public schools have begun to crack down on the dress code, causing students to have to ditch half their wardrobe. The public school dress code is questionable in that is the wardrobe of students really affecting the way they learn and act, are they fair, and are some of the codes really necessary. School officials believe that the way students dress affect their demeanor in class. However, if a girl is sitting at her desk taking notes on her teachers lecture, how can the length of her skirt affect her or others learning capabilities or be distracting What if this girl has long legs, and the skirt automatically appears short on her because of this, should she be forced to buy bigger sizes to accommodate the longer length, yet have the skirt basically fall off at the waist? So to reprimand the girl, the school principal will send her home for the day because they believe her clothing is affecting the learning atmosphere. However, sending her home is also affecting her learning. Most high school students would love to be forced to leave school anyway, so the punishment is really quite contradicting. High school students wear clothing that they feel comfortable in. If their parents allow them to leave the house in what they choose to wear, why should the school tell them that what they wear in unacceptable. After all, if their parents choose to purchase the clothing for their kids to wear, then that is their business, and no one else’s. At Chesapeake High School in Anne Arundel County, the dress code is very highly enforced and strict. Some of the dress code violations are a little over the top. For instance, girls cannot wear tank tops or halter-tops. How is a girl’s upper back being shown really affecting the school? Another code is that a bra cannot be seen from outside her clothing. This is breaking some women’s rights issues. There is nothing wrong with a bra strap sticking out of a shirt. This is definitely not
Interspersed with the codes of musical performance, music video employs predominately visual codes from a range of socio-cultural disciplines and enterprises. Provide a like to a music video/s that you consider is emblematic of particular socio-cultural codes. Detail the extent of encoding apparent in the work and discuss how the various codes construct (or deconstruct) the visual and/or narrative sensibility of the work.

Student Favoritism: Dress Code
I see it every day. Girls who wear skirts or shorts that practically show their butts, shirts that are too low, and even hats being worn in the buildings. It makes me wonder how people get away with violating dress code so drastically when…
required? Some parents say yes but students say no. the reason why parents say yes is because sometimes the children get pick on a lot about how they wear they clothes and what they should wear. Others believe that kids should have the freedom to dress however they want. After strongly believe that uniforms should not be required in school.
Some parents think it’s a great thing for children to wear uniform because now no one would have to be picking on or laugh at about what they wear. Without…

Dress Code Change
I would not like to have the new dress code change about if we should wear Uniforms to school. First of all if we do change the dress code and have to wear uniforms through K-8 grade would cost more money to buy the uniforms and get it in right sizes. You would be thinking we could just buy them our self, but if we do buy it by our self we wouldn’t know how it is suppose to look like or where could we get it. Second of all if you dice to change the dress code and make us wear uniforms…

We start off the new school year with a new dress code, every year they change it and no big deal it gets changed, but this time they went to far. Our children go to school and these people watch them and for every little violation they are taken from class and sent to the office until someone brings them a change of clothes. They cannot return until up to code. For exsample a girl came to school and her shirt had a little white stipe on the arm she got in school suspension same with my child, she…
