Tony’s next step was about to amaze the principal, the students, and their parents. He was about to suggest a new dress code that would respect the school yet provide the kids some reasonable freedom.
Spaghetti straps were out, but shorts were in. No revealing underwear and no midriff whatsoever. This was only the beginning of the school uniform revolution.
Local News Alert
With that, Tony went another step forward. The girl's opinions and feelings were good but weren't enough. He decided to take it all the way and managed to get an interview on local news channel.
He prepared all of his answers. No one was going to catch him by surprise. Tony was prepared to shout out his beliefs and assure that in the future no other girl experiences what his darling Demetra had to go through.
He told the media channels that interviewed him, that he thinks that the parents are the ones who should approve their children's clothing and not the school. If the parents felt comfortable with what their kids wore, the school should have no concerns.
School administrations are usually stricter than parents and parents in most cases are more demanding than their kids, so in this way, they will archive balance. A good place situated in the middle.
Yay or Nay
If this was your kid's school, would you be supportive of the change? Most parents contributed in any way they could, however, some parents were against these changes and feared what could have been the outcome of such freedom.
They didn't agree with girls being objectified just because of what they were wearing. However, they were concerned that if kids were given the freedom to choose what to wear, sooner or later it would lead to chaos.
Making a Change
Soon enough, parents on both sides were fighting the battle. Those who were for the new changes and those who weren't. No one was left on the sidelines and everyone was taking part, and longing to help make a change.
Was Tony's fight for freedom a success? Did the girls end up gaining their freedom of choice? Only time will tell. However, Demetra wasn't the only one who went through a journey of humiliation and shame because of what she wore.
