A concerned parent in Alberta says that Calgary's school dress code is too controlling, especially to young girls. 

Dr. Doreen Rabi, a parent to a student at a public high school in Calgary, tweeted her concerns about the school's dress code and told CBC News that it was "weaponized" against students. 

Dress codes are tools to shame & control students.

Attached in her tweet is a screengrab of the school's policy stating that students must have modest clothing and should avoid drawing attention to themselves. 

The attachment also says that students must have clean clothes that are in good repair and should wear shorts, tops, and skirts of “modest length.”

Rabi noted that things like hoodies, belly buttons, and cleavage don't harm other students and could be policies that diminish and discriminate against kids.
