10-year-old challenges dress code calling leggings a 'distraction'

Posted: Updated:

After one of her friends was sent home for violating a school dress code banning leggings, a 10-year-old is fighting back with protest and a petition against her city’s school district. 

WXIA-TV reports a fifth-grade student from Atlanta wants to change the policy barring students wearing "skin-tight" clothing to school. The policy deems the popular leg wear a "distraction." 

The fifth grader said the policy is unfair and shames girls. She's collected hundreds of signatures on a Change.org petition to change the rules. 

Do you think leggings should be considered "distracting?"
