Coming from an art school where one could come to school with bright pink hair and an abundance of fringe on their shorts, Ojai Valley School was quite a culture shock.
Although understandably more conservative than my previous school, I still believe that this school takes the importance of dress code too seriously. The impetus for dress code is often girls having to dress a certain way as to not distract any members of the opposite sex.
The fact that this is a large cause for dress code is the worst part about the rule, for it is shaming. Females shouldn’t have to alter themselves for the convenience of males. All in all, not only are the motives behind our dress code a controversial point, but it prevents everyone from wearing certain articles of clothing they love!
