Student petitions School District to revoke dress code rule

Hannah Grace Smith, a West Florida High School student, believes the Escambia County School District’s dress code that is “incredibly sexist and unnecessary, and I believe that it should be revoked.”

Her petition on has gotten nearly 1,000 signatures.Smith started it five days ago.

Smith objects to the dress code rule: “Clothing that exposes the entire shoulder, tube tops, spaghetti straps, or similar type of clothing may only be worn with a blouse or shirt”.

“During my time in Escambia County schools, I have found that this rule in itself creates the distraction, not the women’s shoulders,” wrote Smith. “If administration didn’t shout “Shoulders are a Distraction” from the rooftops of our schools, many wouldn’t even view them as a distraction.”

  1. Hey GNAGZ,
    How about you get involved in our schools? Currently we are at the bottom. Maybe, just maybe you could “learn them”.

  2. I only saw one error in the petition. (“in Escambia County school’s” should have been schools). It was hardly rife with spelling and grammar errors.

  3. I’m behind her cause 100%, but the real distraction is not exposed shoulders, it’s an exposed lack of proper education. Her petition is rife with spelling and grammar errors.
