Dress code? Is it Necessary?

We all know the school enforces a strict dress code to all it’s students, but is it really necessary? I don’t think there is a definitive yes or no answer, because I can see how you can argue on both sides of the topic. On one hand, it is good to have a dress code so no one shows too much skin, and so everyone knows what is okay and what isn’t. Although I believe is it important to have some rules, I don’t think it should be as extreme as it is. The shorts and ripped jeans rule should stay the same, but the three-inch rule for shirts is a little unnecessary. As long as everything is covered, then I think girls should be allowed to wear off-the-shoulder shirts or tank tops. All in all, the dress code gives important guide lines to students, and should be followed, even if you don’t agree with it.
