Charter school skirts for girls require unconstitutional, judicial rules

North Carolina Charter Schools require girls to wear skirts based on the idea that they are “delicate vessels” that deserve “gentle” treatment of boys, a federal appeals court ruled Tuesday.

Fourth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals Ruled 10-6. That Charter Day School violated the rights of three female students to equal protection by adopting a policy of skirts based on gender stereotypes about the “appropriate place” for girls in society.

The school enacted a dress code, the founder of which, businessman Baker Mitchell, said in an email and testimony that he would “preserve testimony” and ensure that girls are treated “more politely and more than boys”. Be gentle.

The government-funded school in Brunswick County argued that the equivalent protection clause of the 14th Amendment to the US Constitution did not apply to it because it was a private institution, not a “state actor.”

But U.S. Circuit Judge Barbara Milano Cannon said this is the first time North Carolina has committed to providing free, universal education to students. He said a contradictory decision would mean that North Carolina could ignore “clear” discrimination.

The Richmond, Virginia, court also allowed students to sue under Title IX, a federal law that prohibits sex discrimination in federally funded education.

Galen said the decision is a victory for students attending public charter schools in North Carolina, and that charter schools across the country should be aware that when it comes to guaranteeing equal educational opportunities for students. They should follow the same rules as traditional government schools. Sherwin, student lawyer at the American Civil Liberties Union.

The school’s lawyer, Aaron Street, called the decision “erroneous and harmful” and said it contradicted the US Supreme Court’s precedent and “limits parents’ ability to choose the best education for their children.”

Six dissenting votes went to judges appointed by all Republicans.
