“Howe” Ridiculous Can You Be?

Many schools today have accepted the fact that leggings are a modern style that many teens enjoy and have welcomed leggings into their dress code, but not at Northern Bedford. Northern Bedford stands strong to the “no tight exercise wear” rule. It is not the female’s fault that they have bodies that men like.
