“It violates the state’s appropriate dress regulation for schools,”

According to Chuma-Udeh, a student should appear professional, present a favorable image, and avoid dressing indecently for school.

The commissioner stated that the state still considers knee length to be the permissible length for school uniforms, not above the knee.

“If we don’t get it right at this point, we haven’t protected the children’s future.”
