NC Student Not Allowed To Graduate Over Dress Code


Dress codes are enforced in high schools all across the country, but this student in North Carolina is fighting back over whether her shirt was breaking the rules. 

Summer was eating lunch when her principal asked her if she had a jacket to cover up her shirt. The issue with the shirt was Summer's collar bone showing. 

Even though Summer felt her shirt did not violate the dress code, she did take the jacket to wear over it. After doing that, the principal wanted her to change completely. Summer didn't comply with changing outfits, so the principal gave her a 10-day suspension with the possibility of not walking during the graduation ceremony. Her mom plans to appeal. Is this punishment too harsh for the crime, or are the rules the rules?
