I will be arguing that schools shouldn't have the right to monitor the clothes that women wear.

The main reason school chastise women for their outfits is because it distracts the male students and teachers, but we shouldn't teaching our children that it's not okay for a women to walk outside with whatever she wants and that it's totally okay for men to scrutinize them for it. That men have no control of their urges and it's up to women to please them and not distract them.

Accepted.

You claim that "the main reason school(s) chastise women for their outfits is because it distracts the male students and teachers", which isn't exactly correct. School is a formal setting, and therefore people generally wear formal clothes. In addition, it's not only females that have to comply. Males are also expected to dress appropriately.

In terms of female students, if they are under 16 they are classified as underage. So encouragement of modest dress is to be expected. Your statements that it's because of male attention or male inability to self-control are lacking in credibility and support, the reasoning is purely practical.

It should be noted that female teachers and pupils can have certain freedom when it comes to selecting their clothes, the only requirement is that they're not overtly revealing, and in the teachers case, unprofessional. The same applies to male students, and male teachers.
