- The Administrative Staff of Carver Christian High School
Each Tuesday, and on school outings, all students of Carver Christian High School are asked to wear the formal uniform. This includes a white school shirt, the burgundy created sweater, black dress shoes and socks, for men black dress pants, and for females the school kilt.
The separation between the male and female uniform is both unnecessary and unjust. The purpose of a formal day and school uniform is to, "Assist in creating a positive learning environment that is free of distractions and disruptions and to encourage students to represent the school in a positive light while fostering a sense of community." This goal is not being met if female students are being forced to dress differently on formal days.
Many female students are being forced to feel uncomfortable, and feel as if they are being exploited. This is not fair, as no school should make important members of the student body feel like they are not welcome.
All female students of Carver Christian High School should have the option to wear Halpern's black dress pants on formal days.
We, the undersigned, call on the administrative staff of Carver Christian High School to give all female students the option of wearing the approved black dress pants on formal days.
This is to stop the sexist injustice that currently resides with in the school rules, and to promote equality and unity within the school.
