I believe that when you interrupt a girl's school day to force her to change clothes or to send her home because her shorts are short, and her bra straps are visible, you are telling her that hiding her body is more important than her education. You are telling her that making sure the boys have a distraction-free learning environment is more important than her education. You are telling her that boys are more entitled to an education than she is.

Education is the ultimate pillar for success. Girl's dress code should be enforced upon female students; boys should follow the dress code too. The United States of America's teenagers are hurting her image. If a girl comes to school on purposely with revealing clothing to attract the boys, is that not her fault? She is the one who defies to not have a correct education. She would rather be attracting boys at a young age than to focus on her future. Attracting male humans is what female humans do by instinct. But teenagers are doing this. Not many teenage couples persevere to Matrimony. And teenagers are having sex before marriage, which is in the future. So, while waiting for marriage, girls should be focused on education. They shouldn't spend a lot of time to pick out outfits to attract guys. They should just get a wardrobe of clothes that are clean and make them look fitting to school. This doesn't mean uniforms. Teachers actually know what to do to get both genders to get the education both genders need. It is up to the students to decide whether or not do they want to try and get a clear view of a successful future.

Just because a girl decides to dress up or whatnot, does not mean she is trying to attract a guy. When a girl wears something nice, it's because she feels pretty in it. That is no reason for her to be called into the office and waste, time that was meant for education, on changing into longer pants because boys "can't control themselves".

So girls want to feel pretty in clothes. That's not different for guys, sometimes. But then how about those shirts that reveal girls' stomachs? And then there's those shorts that are so short sometimes one can see some of the girl's bottom. There is a reason to go to office: to change those clothes and have some modesty. It's most likely, when the girl with too short shorts, and a shirt to show her pierced bellybutton was called to change in the morning when she arrived, barely wasting school time. The younger generation shouldn't blame the teachers for wasting educational time. The younger generation of teenagers should blame themselves. They are the ones who choose what they wear, and whether or not will they pay attention to school lessons.

First off, not all girls go to school seeking male attention with what they wear. Personally, I dress well for myself and no one else. To categorize all girls into that clump is ignorant and ridiculous. And just evaluate girls spend time picking out their outfits, does not under ANY circumstance, mean she is spending less time on her education. Taking ten minutes out of your day to pick out something to wear in no way compromises an education. As for what you are suggesting, it is called a uniform and that comment is completely sexist. You're saying boys can wear whatever they want, within school dress code, but women should be required to wear the same thing that the administration deems acceptable? And you're also suggesting the "distraction" of women's clothing is completely at the fault of the female? What about the guys? They should be able to 'focus' on school work despite some girl wearing a tank top. Girls should not be punished for wearing a tank top because some guy is distracted. And as for your last statement: "It is up to the students to decide whether or not do they want to try and get a clear view of a successful future," yes it should be up to them; despite what another student is wearing if they want an education, it's provided and placed at their feet.
