Florida District Bans School-Issued Cheerleading Uniforms From Being Worn In Class
Some parents in a Florida school district are upset that cheerleaders are being prohibited from wearing their uniforms to class, despite the fact that the uniforms are issued by the schools.
According to officials at several Pinellas County schools, the uniforms are simply too revealing for students to wear during the day, as their sleeveless tops and short skirts violate school dress codes. Cheerleaders previously wore their uniforms to class on game days as a display of school spirit, Today.com notes.
However, some parents wonder why the school would ban a uniform that officials previously approved.
"If it's an approved school uniform -- which it was approved, by the administration, years ago -- why is it out of dress code?" Christine Johnson told the Tampa Bay Times. "And why can they wear it in front of thousands of people at a football field if they can't wear it on game day at school?"
