    implementing a dress code is every bit as much activism as altering one. you don't get to redefine words. just saying.

    Well, the schools around my parts enacted a dress code about 10 years ago and initially I was a bit irritated but over time it really started to make sense.

    I had 2 kids in school at the time. First it makes it easier on the parents every year when it comes time to purchase new clothes and it also stops some of the destractions kids run into like teasing because of dress style or fashion.

    My kids were in school for one reason, and they understood it from a early age. To focus on their work and take advantage of the reason why that big utilitarian looking brick building exist. To learn.

    So within reason the less distractions the better and dress codes are very reasonable.

    I'm not redefining any terms. I'm using the real definitions of them rather than the one you made up. There is nothing controversial about a dress code, as all schools everywhere have a dress code. All of them. Even before the first class is held, a dress code exists.

    Specific inclusions in the dress code could be construed as activism, but the dress code itself is not.

    A person trying to implement a new dress code is engaging in activism. you don't get to change definitions, and you don't get to argue straw men with me.

    and where did the word controversial come in to discussion?

    Every school does have a dress code though. Often that code is very loose, as in "must be wearing clothes that cover their naughty bits," but it's still a dress code.

    Activism consists of efforts to promote, impede, or direct social, political, economic, or environmental change, or stasis.

    a policy of directing social order - by changing or preserving, is activism.

    Some activism makes sense.

    So now we agree that school is the place for activism.

    the only real difference is which activism we agree with.

    From the definition of activism, of course (the real one, not the one you have made up in your head)

    Activism - Definition and More from the Free Merriam-Webster Dictionary

    You should look up straw man as well, since you got that wrong too.
