Public schools are the only schools that have a problem enforcing dress codes (“When it comes to dress codes, girls aren’t equal,” Los Angeles Times, Jan. 27). That’s because they must enroll all students who show up at their doors regardless of their motivation to learn.
In sharp contrast, private and religious schools have rigid dress codes that are observed by parents and their children. As a result, administrators don’t have to waste valuable time enforcing the rules. When parents choose a particular school, they agree to abide by all their rules, including the dress codes.
