Old people running the schools get offended by this stuff. Dress code is really to make the adults more comfortable, cause the kids don't care.0

Possibly people who fear a 'provocatively' dressed gal will distract the guys. I find quite a lot of people think guys are too easily distracted and gals need to dress less 'provocatively' so guys can focus on school.
Or probably people who think a gal's self respect and how much respect to give her ties into how much she sexually expresses herself. I. e no to little expression means she has self-respect and deserves respect.
Why are there even dresscodes?
Likely to as a way to prevent male authority figures, male teachers, and male students from sexualizing gals. Plus the bonus of fostering school community and dissuading popularity/cliches/economic conflicts ala how you dress.2
Mainly because America still operates on in Loco parentis- which is basically 'In place of the parents'. Meaning our schools still operate in the ways of the 1700's where teachers acted like your parents and delivered punishments and such. I'm an elementary ed major and one of my classes was History of American Ed and we discussed all of this, and it actually violates your rights as a student. If I were you, I would try to talk to someone about it and get documentation. Schools continue to do stuff like this because people don't know what is acceptable and what is not.0
First I thought you meant your peers teased you about this but you meant dress code. Yeah I totally feel you don't worry you are not alone! I once got dress code for wearing gym shorts. It was because they were "too short" because your arms should not be longer than you shorts even though I have very short arms and they did not pass my shorts!!0
