No Dress Code
Transcript of No Dress Code
People need to have freedom in how they want to express themselves. Dress code does not allow us to dye our hair, wear ripped clothing, wear Nike shorts, or even wear tank tops, limiting us on what we can wear and how we can express ourselves. We are basically forced to dress all the same. If students have to obey a dress code, then their ability to be unique is being taken away. Middle school and High school are critical times in someone's life. These teenagers are trying to find out who they are. If students are restricted to what they wear, then they won't be able to find out who they truly are.

Dress code goes against the first amendment in more than one way. When we express ourselves, we are saying something, putting freedom of speech into action. If schools tell us what can and cannot wear, they are telling us what we can say. It also goes against freedom of religion because certain religions require them to wear specific things. If dress code restricts them from practicing freedom of religion.
No Dress Code
Hannah and Anthony
Today, Anthony and I are proposing our case against dress code. Having a dress code limits children and teens from finding out who they are and expressing themselves. We believe that the responsibility of telling people what to wear or what not to wear, should be decided by the parents of the dress code victims, not the schools. Also, dress code violates our rights, listed in the constitution. It goes against what the Bill of Rights says in not just one way but two. Because of these three reasons, we are opposing the unconstitutional dress code that schools put on these children and teens, limiting their ability to be unique.
Dress code should not be decided by the schools, but the parents, it limits our ability on how we can express ourselves and how to be unique, and it's unconstitutional in more than one way.
