A male student in the cosmetology program at Shadow Creek High School was sent to in-school suspension for wearing makeup on campus.

“He does makeup every day in those classes. He also wear make-up on his own so he felt he should have the right to wear it to school like any girl would,” said Jasmin Richards, the male student’s friend.

Jasmin says it was considered a violation of the student dress code in Alvin ISD, so she started a petition, along with her friend, that now has more than 1,800 signatures.

The petition backs her idea to change the student dress code that she says prevents males from wearing not just makeup, but earrings too.
