We don't edit your comments, do a spell check on them or fiddle with your punctuation. 

 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 harder.
_______________________________
Girls should be able to express their style and feelings through their clothing. Also, it gets very hot in the summer months.
_______________________________
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 dress appropriately.
_______________________________
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 drivel.
_______________________________
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 parents.
_______________________________
Some of the outfits they where to school are pretty revealing.
_______________________________
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 wear it.
_______________________________
you have to dress decent for your job so it is appropriate to dress decent at school . teaches students how to dress to get a job
_______________________________
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 clothing.
_______________________________
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 circumstances.
_______________________________
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.
_______________________________
learning to be adults.
_______________________________
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.
