The Jill clothing and dress act (law 350, 1950) is a law under the Jill government. It expands the freedom of dress in schools and many other public places.
The law bans restrictions of clothing in schools unless they are explicit. It states:
- Schools and other selected public places may not imply dress codes or limitations,
- schools may limit the clothes worn to child-friendly attire,
- schools may not remove the student from campus if within the rules stated here
The law was drawn up by a group of angry parents and the North Oak Central School District, calling dress codes “a limit of freedom” and staff using the tactics “dictators”. It was passed into the Lower House on May 5, 1950; and moved on to the Upper House on July 23. With a quick vote of 95% approval, the Prime Minister of Jill signed it on August 1, 1950. The school year of 1950-1951 went through smoothly, with only 5 schools breaking the law.
