We do toss out more than one vote per responder.
It's a waste of your time. The computer eliminates them.
Some people voted many times
trying to skew the results. It does not work as the computer
tosses you out and allows only one vote for you.
We toss out multiple comments too.
Bottom Line: multiple votes waste your time not the computers.
Here are some of the comments, but not all as some duplicate votes
were tossed out. We don't correct spelling:

Some of them look terrible!!!
I think kids should be allowed to express their personality
in the way they dress.
There used to be a very reasonable dress code for all
students to adhere to, that demonstrated respect for all in
a place of learning. What has happened that it is no longer
upheld? School is not the beach or vactionland.
Girls should not be taught that their bodies are sexual
objects that need to be covered up. If a man is distracted
by a girls shoulders, maybe he should be taught to work
Girls should be able to express their style and feelings
through their clothing. Also, it gets very hot in the summer
I thought they already did but they were never enforced.
Let's have our girls cover their butts and have our boys
pull up their pants. It is not too much to ask. None of
these kids are going to get jobs if they don't learn how to
High school is a place to practise dressing for the work
world, with some guidance/guidelines.
Yes they should. It is entirely reasonable for a public
institution to ask for a minimum presentable standard of
dress. Schools should be in the business of preparing kids
for life and not the inculcating of them with leftist
It depends upon the purpose of such a code. Is it to set a
standard of attire - such as no PJ pants, or simply to
police sexual expression. Over policing women and girls
takes the responsibility for sexual distraction away from
men, and makes it totally the "fault" of the women or girls.
I believe they should....as long as they don't go too far.
However, it needs to apply to EVERYONE equally. Also, keep
in mind that it is 2014 and fashion has changed a lot.
Our children for the first 6 years of schooling wore
uniforms. No competition to see who had the latest fashion
clothes, and it is actually cheaper in the long run for the
Some of the outfits they where to school are pretty
but I think that the dresscode should be looked at and
updated. As long as an outfit is repectful and doesn't
insult anyone there should be no reason a student couldn't

Absolutely! Some skirts & shorts much too short!
All kids would be on an even playing field instead of the
less fortunate kids not having the latest styles of
If our parents let us out of the house in the morning, then
it shouldn't be a big deal.
............they will look better
This way all students are equal. Yes by all means. Schools
are not meant to be fashion shows by some students.
We'll dress kids have more pride andbehavelike adults
I don't think it hurts young adults to dress accordingly.
This prepares them for the future.
Out of respect for persons of authority, it is important to
maintain a dress code that is appropriate to the
No one should be allowed to wear anything (t-shirt, hoody,
etc..) that is sexist, racist, homophobic or any other
bigoted words or pictures.
One grows tired of seeing bra straps, skimpy shirts on girls
and tights Lululemon tights. Boys don"t look at the girls
and become distracted that is plain silly. Girls do need to
dress with more care in mind in how they appear to others at
all times. THe clothes worn by many girls at school are
simply inappropriate for school and far to sexy for girls 14
and 15 years of age.
I was behind a girl coming out of the high school and she
might as well of left her cut off shorts at home as they
were so short they covered nothing.
absolutely. teenagers already have enough distractions
interfering with their time in class.

Don't let the guys wear skirts!
No, unless decided by a Committee, representing students,
parents and staff.
All schools should
School is a large enough endeavour without students having
to compete with a dress code.
