A high school student's crew neck apparently did not abide by the dress code rules and she is just as confused as we are, about what exactly is so wrong about it...
Another day, another dress code violation.
As the new school year is starting, one high schooler has already been called out for her choice of clothing and the reasoning for it is absolutely ridiculous!
Dickson County High School student Tori Taylor was one of many other students who was taken out of classes for violating her school’s dress code.
According to Tori, the school dress code says that students must wear shirts that are either collared or crew neck, with sleeves. So Tori took to Twitter to share the exact shirt, that apparently caused havoc, as proof for how uncalled for this was.

The ironic part was that Tori was wearing a sleeved, crew neck shirt… so what exactly is the issue here?
Tori told News Channel 5 that she went to the principal’s office over this contradicting concern and was told: “It wasn’t the right cut of a crew neck top.”
But after looking more at the rulebook, the only place where it goes into specifics is when they describe the collared shirts, saying: “Collared shirts with more than two buttons (unbuttoned) may be worn over a crew neck t-shirt.”
At the very bottom of the dress code rules, they have “examples” of the proper crew neck shirts, students can wear.
Yeah…not the best examples…
The school principal, Joey Holley, issued a statement regarding the school and its policies:
“Dickson County High School is proud to build good relationships with students, parents, and our community.
We have a great school and we strive every day to keep it that way. The purpose of our dress code is to assure students will dress and groom in a clean, neat, and modest manner in order not to distract or interfere with the educational environment of the school.
For the most part, 99% of our students have come to school within our dress code guidelines. As a reminder, we have communicated with students, parents, and community our dress code expectations for this school year.”
Besides still not being completely clear on the exact standards the school expects, Tori’s concern was that she had already purchased her back-to-school clothes. She and many other girls who got in trouble were left to be unsure on whether or not the clothes would abide by the extreme policy.
But a few days later, Tori posted an update saying that this button-down shirt was in good-standing for the dress code…
this is worse than my other shirt but this is in "dress code"😂😂 pic.twitter.com/Q1gIMfNCOr— Bree🌻 (@Bree3Beard) August 10, 2017
What?! Just how is this better than the crew neck?
Alright, if her shirt is ‘not the right cut,’ then what is? It’s not distracting, it’s not low-cut, it’s not vulgar, it’s a freaking shirt!
In my eyes, this shirt is pretty conservative-looking and should not cause any issues!
Waiting for the day where these incidents are no longer happening and girls don’t have to feel controlled over what they can and can not wear to school.
