Loc'd and Faded, Yoga Pants, and Spaghetti Straps: Discrimination in Dress Codes and School Pushout
Martin, Jennifer L.; Brooks, Jennifer N.
International Journal of Education Policy and Leadership, v16 n19 2020
This article reviews dress code violations that have made national news in the United States and globally that spotlight racist and sexist issues embedded in common K-12 dress codes. It also analyzes all the school dress codes in one county in a Midwestern American state to examine the associated racist and sexist implications. The article ends with an assessment tool to help readers determine the levels of racism and sexism in their own K-12 district dress codes.
