A high school in Indiana is making waves this morning, after announcing that they would no longer be requiring students to wear clothes to school. The decision comes after a month-long protest from students over a new dress code that would require uniforms.
â€śThe students staged a sit-in over the protest of a uniform policy, and the entire student body came to class nude,â€ť said high school principal Mike Rubio. â€śThat day, we had no absences, and higher testing scores than ever before. We thought it might be a fluke, but all that week, every single student came to school, and they were all eager to learn. They were all also very naked, but they were engaged. It was amazing.â€ť
The school board decided to suspend the dress code change in favor of allowing students to wear whatever they wanted. Almost all the students continued to show up to school nude.
â€śI love being naked,â€ť said sophomore Lindsay Burns. â€śIâ€™m usually naked at home, and this is a lot more comfortable. Iâ€™m also a lot more popular now, which is awesome. My datebook is filled until January.â€ť
Most of the parents in the school district say they are proud that their children can look past one anotherâ€™s body issues and just be in school, learning, and that nudity shouldnâ€™t be something that is so sexualized.
â€śNudity is not inherently dirty,â€ť said Michael Jones, whose son, Phil, is a senior at the school. â€śPhil is fine with being naked, and heâ€™s definitely not got an issue with the girls being naked, either, if you know what I mean. Heh heh. Seriously though, these kids stood up for something, and now they get to strip down for something. Itâ€™s a win for them all, and Iâ€™m super proud to be a parent here.â€ť
