Education scholar: 'middle-class' dress codes are white privilege

Via Billy

Liberal logic...............

A University of Georgia (UGA) doctoral student says that high school dress codes based on middle-class values of modesty and professionalism unfairly target minority students.

In an essay shared by The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Rouhollah Aghasaleh, a PhD candidate in middle and secondary education at UGA, writes that dress codes unfairly discriminate against the hip hop culture enjoyed by young black students and others who come from working class backgrounds.
“Not everyone needs to act white; not everyone needs to act middle class.”
“Dress code as it exists in schools means some bodies are more privileged over others,” Aghasaleh states. “Dress code is to regulate and maintain the normative gender, sexuality, race, and class… Similarly, acting black and wearing clothes of working class is considered disruptive for education and inappropriate for businesses.”

Aghasaleh took issue with a clothing policy he saw posted at a mostly black Georgia high school last year, describing a flyer that “included figures of two young adolescents; a black male wearing baggy jeans, bandana, [and] tank top with a beer logo on front, and a white female wearing short shorts, halter top with spaghetti straps, and a hat.”


  1. Stop dressing like thugs. No wonder you can't find a job. Idiots.

  2. Imbeciles,add a few more rings to your body also.........

  3. Another doctoral candidate... wtf? Work 15 hours a week for 8 months per year. Have tenure so short of burning the building down or having sex with students have a job for life. Not even real world just like his statements. Pull your damn pants up and get those damn holes out of your earlobes.
