Can a State-Funded Charter School Require Female Students to Wear Skirts?

A state-funded charter school in North Carolina may not require female students to wear skirts because it counts as a state actor, the en banc U.S. Court of Appeals for the Fourth Circuit concluded today in Peltier v. Charter Day School. The en banc court split 10-6.


I'd be more worried if the school were requiring boys to wear skirts.

We were out this afternoon and drove through a village at the time the schools emptied. I got the impression that the girls seemed more given to wearing school uniform than the boys. I also wondered what the point of a uniform policy is if you don't enforce it.
