If they can`t wear 3 inch skirts than what in the hell am I supposed to look at during Chemistry? The teacher? We all no that`s not gonna happen!
Actually no, freedom of expression...is a freedom. There have been arguments in the past that schools can suspend freedom of expression if it interferes in education, but a freedom is a freedom.
A dress code that forbids certain kinds of clothing works just as well at eliminating girls dressed as whores and guys showing off their underwear. Making everyone wear something bland and identical to everyone else belittles personal freedom. Making only the truly bad and distracting clothing off-limits allows people plenty of expression within the limits of reason and self-respect.
"I liked wearing uniforms (guess I`m a dork) it was so much easier and when we got to dress down, it made it worthwhile! :)"
I too look forward to Dress Down and Tag days. :C Highfive!
Freedom of expression is a privilege. Abuse it, and those in charge will take it away. Now cry about it.
I still don`t agree with the dress code.
2) I think this school has worse things to worry about, with one of their students saying "I don`t see nothing wrong with it".
they probably only had the school crest on the floor roped off because it was new, it was the same with my school last year. they had it there for about a month so that the glue would stick really good.
It isn`t about school pride and identity, it`s about power and control. Inept administrators are trying to fix their history of dismal performance by forcing a change in the way kids dress. They have backed themselves into a corner with a bungled code, and they can`t back off without losing authority. Bad move.
Did the assistant superintendent remind anyone else of Dolores Umbridge from Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix?
Also, if this is the practice forced upon the students, then faculty should also comply. The superintendent`s shirt is breaking the new dress code rules, and if students` clothing is `distracting` from their education, then faculty and the higher ups should also cut off their individuality to not disrupt the learning process.
Don`t you think that`s fair?
teachers came round and done sock inspections on random days. had to show 6 stripes on the tie. no jewlery
God, I hate the pussification of this country!
My school uniform was brown
"They are actually stripping personalities of children away from them...."
My nomination for the Stupid Comment of the year...
That is because you were never cool.
"SCHOOL! not a holiday! play by the rules"
YES! That`s a great point, the superintendent wasn`t following the dress code! She`s not allowed to wear that at school!
Men would have to wear black pants or khakis and a colored shirt. Ties were not required, however, they were recommended.
Women had regulations on the type of skirts they could wear (length, cut, style) and tops had to be `professional/business casual`.
However, things like pep rallies and and different school spirit events warranted a more lax dress code, where the students were allowed to wear a T-Shirt of their choosing, as long as it wasn`t offensive, and comfortable pants.
Overall, the school year went by great. There was rebellion the first semester, but after winter break, there was very few problems regarding dress code.
Yes, this was a public school.
Also, loved the part where the mom says that dress codes strip the students` personalities. Then the moms are staging a protest for the kids.
You say that uniforms are restricting and take away the voice of indivuality from the students, however, you then assume, that fashion is the only way to express ones individuality. What we noticed was that there was an increase in the rate of students being involved in clubs and various activities offered by the school. The students, once they overcame their initial outrage, found other ways to make themselves known and heard.
The high school I taught at was also the one I attended 5 years earlier, and the most interesting thing I noticed was that regardless of what the students wore, the fundamental segregation the students enforced on one another was still there. Clothing made no difference choices.
You mean... you`re NOT wearing your standard-issue black-and-cyan IAB uniform whenever you post!!?? You wait till I tell Mr Fancy about this!
if school was for education and not expressing youself, the children would be locked away in separate rooms.
Why? because the majority don`t wear that expensive clothes.
