Dress Codes

By: Mari Bautista


Dress codes is relates to the 1st amendment of the Bill of Rights. The 1st amendment says ”Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the government for a redress of grievances.” If forcing a student to wear a uniform it would be a violation of the 1st amendment which means the school is breaking the first amendment. Also making a student wear uniforms is a violations to freedom of expression. Another thing is that uniforms interfere with people’s religion.
