← Back to Trustee candidates and dress codes

Do you support revising TDSB Policy P042 (Appropriate Dress) so that it aligns with equity and human rights, and so that it incorporates greater opportunity for student voice in dress code development, review, and revision?

I support the student advocates who want an end to a dress code policy.  I completely endorse freedom of expression. The less we get hung up on what clothing to wear the better. Creative minds and innovation comes from students being allowed to conduct themselves in a way that fosters diversity of identities which are free from the confines of institutional conformity. This is change for the better, in particular as a measure of implementing both policies of Human Rights and Gender-Based Violence. I would extend the same policy for teachers and staff.
