Every day, I always turn on my laptop to read online news and I came across this upsetting new information about a Pennsylvania teen was kicked out of prom for wearing a tuxedo because it violated the dress code. I understand that school have rules but rules shouldn’t stop a student from doing what makes them happy. Would it make a big different if only one student is dressed differently? Students have the right to dress like they want and attend school events. Prom is an important event and every student in school should attend one because it’s a day to celebrate goals and victories. After doing difficult math homework, writing a bunch papers and taking final exams, students have the right to reward themselves with anything including attending prom. Sometimes, I think that public schools are not completing their responsibilities and one of them is to reward students. This is another example of gender inequality and the schools should try to avoid gender inequality in classrooms and events. As I watching the video, I noticed that the student was wearing a decent suit and I felt that prom was an opportunity for her to socialize with her classmates and strangers. Why the school principle did not take proper action? Why do we continue treat young people differently in institutions? I am pretty sure this unfair action wouldn’t have taken place if the school was private or the principle had little moral sense. What the school is not only a political issue, but also a moral issue because these kind of injustices affect students in many ways.in fact, the student should sue the school for discrimination and other stuff in order to teach them a lesson. This morning was not pleasant and I hope this kind of injustice stops in schools.
