Outraged Parents Fight Back After School Tries To Forbid Girls From Wearing Dresses And Skirts

Parents whose children attend schools in the Northwest Local School District in Ohio didn’t hesitate to voice their displeasure with a proposed dress code change that would particularly affect young female students.

According to Cincinnati.com, officials sought to create a dress code for students at all five secondary schools and drafted several amendments that they sent to parents for feedback.

Mom and dads, especially those of the female students were not happy that one of the amendments proposed that girls be banned from wearing dresses or skirts — period.

According to the news outlet, they were upset that the amendment perpetuated the idea that girls are responsible for the advances made on them and harassment because of the way they dress.

Bob Leverett, a parent of a teen attending Colerain High School, which is in the school district, posted about the draft code in the Colerain Avenue: Yesterday, Today, and Tomorrow Facebook group to get other people’s reactions.

He wrote, “I have a daughter, she is a girly-girl, and she is completely destroyed over this news. She wants to change schools and wants to know how this is okay!!”

Luckily, district officials were receptive to the parents’ complaints and updated the draft to allow the female students to wear skirts and dresses of  “an appropriate length.”

The final draft will be reviewed and considered for approval in March.
