Why dress codes?

Clothing primarily means for expressing ideas for students is as primitive clothing itself .Yet schools across the country often grapple with whether to enforce strict dress code policies that may interfere with a students right "to self expression".

Why are they such a big deal?

While school boards are generally allowed to create and enforce dress code programs within their districts ,they must do so without violating the constitutional rights of a student.
