Leggings Targeted in Dress Codes

EVANSTON,
Ill. (AP) -- They're called leggings -- popular tight-fitting pants that seem
to be the favorite new target of the school dress code. Some schools have
banned leggings outright. Others, including a middle school in Evanston, have
set limits.


Some
parents and students are complaining -- and saying more developed girls are
being targeted. So in the Evanston case, the school board is reviewing the
policy at Haven Middle School and other schools in the district. Legal experts
say these matters are generally settled outside the courts, unless safety is an
issue. But usually, they say consistency and common sense work best when
writing a policy. They point to the case of a Colorado girl, suspended after
she shaved her head to support a young friend with cancer -- a decision quickly
reversed.
