A prevailing sentiment as it relates to high school aged students is that they're growing up too fast, thanks in large part to a number of factors from the implementation of social media, continued advanced in technology and access to information that is well ahead of their age and even a lack of parenting.
Some circles and groups of onlookers haven't exactly accepted this evolution and have made it their purpose to ensure teenagers aren't exposed to anything and everything that is well ahead of their time. Those watchdog groups and organizations aren't doing anything wrong but rather exercising their opinions regarding the topic of teenagers being exposed to inappropriate material but also that same high school group acting and dressing their age.
Their involvement in actually controlling first hand what happens, however, is non existent. They can indulge in their beliefs and attempt to convey and sway the masses as to their version of right or wrong but they can't truly enforce much above and beyond how they feel.
One place that still plays police regarding high school students and what they wear or how they portray themselves in a public setting are high schools and the faculty, principals and guidance counselors that roam the halls. They're intent on keeping a certain image and policing the dress code accordingly. As much as the outside world has changed, high school and the rules haven't been altered much.
No cell phones, no public displays of affection in the hallways and every pair of shorts worn by a female must pass the two inch rule (the shorts must extend two inches beyond the fingertips of the girl when she puts her hands down to her sides).
