School dress codes are rarely popular, but recently they have come under fire from students who say these policies can be sexist and racist. Others argue strict dress codes are necessary for a safe learning environment and to prepare students for the workplace. How do you think schools should decide on dress code policies? Support your answer with evidence.
Elevate the discussion with a Make & Share. Create a short presentation to convince your principal or school board to change your school's dress code. The presentation shouldn't be more than 5 slides and should feature photos that illustrate why certain items should not (or should be) banned. Embed your presentation in the Make & Share tab.
Web-based tools for creating presentations: Google Slides, Adobe Spark, Prezi
