    Some South Bay schools are removing a controversial dress code.

    The San Jose Unified School District agreed with students who raised concerns the dress code was unfair to female students. The dress code includes a ban on halter tops and certain shorts.

    District officials are now revising the dress code to be clothing "suitable" for the classroom and leaving it up for families to decide.
