A new study shows that Black girls receive heavier penalties over dress codes than their peers. It's known that Black girls are disciplined more harshly than their white peers, but the study shows that it could be linked to school uniform policies. The National Women’s Law Center studied school dress codes in Washington D.C. and found that Black girls are unnecessarily and predominantly punished under uniform rules. Black girls were found to be in violation of dress codes because they were "unladylike," "inappropriate," or "distracting to the boys around them." (The Root)
