I go to a sixth-form college in England and yeah, if our skirts aren't knee-length we're sent home to change.

Baal: That does not ignore your post.
1) Even if a person's school makes him aware of how sex works, it doesn't mean he feels secure in his home society actually buying condoms.
With the teaching students correct methods for addressing a flute, there is always the "You're not supposed to be doing this but..." attached to the lesson.
2) Sexual attraction goes beyond the visual so, even people that wear burqas desire sex, are desired and will find an opportunity to grab hold of a flute.

So, "the problem" is "teens may know how to prepare but are afraid," not "fowl temptresses show too much flesh."

Skirts are already regulated in most schools around here.

jo bagley = major feminist, i for one if i had a twelve or thirteen year old daughter would not want her walking around with there skirts high enough to see the lower parts of her ass cheeks which is evidently what some of them were doing, female rights or not it is putting them in danger

CodeJockey:
Perhaps if the girls in your school had longer skirts you would have concentrated a little more on literacy.

Your response, to my post, ignores the information in my post.

"Some schools in the U.S. don't allow students to wear a shirt with the U.S. flag, wear or write anything critical of Obama, or bring a toy soldier to school. Some schools lead chants of worship and praise for B.O."

That's kind of creepy. What schools lead chants of worship for Barack Obama?

I don't really like this, the title makes you think that it is a ridiculous strange event, and that the uk is nuts because of what there banning.
but really banning short skirts seems reasonable.
I'm a pupil at a uk school (just finished actually). And my school has virtual the same rules and my school rules state if its above half the thigh then its not ok same with tight leggings and jeggings.
Obviously the girls of the school don't like it and the dudes don't care, but it seems reasonable you wouldn't expect someone coming into work wearing a skirt that makes the bottom of the ass clearly visible. It's just not right, especially for 13-14 year old's.

I guess this could seem odd in to some Americans that go to schools without uniform, but I think anyone in a school with uniform will agree.
I mean as a boy in the school not like I don't want it, but I can see why schools have that rule.

I think I dislike that the Title because it makes it seem like

When someone criticizes the U.S as being right-wing, they're weighing it against Europe. Compared to Europe we are indeed filled with right-wing nuts, but compared to our own history we are becoming more left-wing.

Anyway, just thought I'd pitch in.

My school's administrators actually tried banning tight-fitting jeans on the grounds that they drew attention to the lower body. It never happened, but I think it demonstrates how overprotective people get.

Hell, I think dress-codes should be banned altogether to let people learn for themselves why they shouldn't wear suggestive clothing.

I'm still wondering where's the evidence that America is "filled with a bunch of right-wing nuts". Democrats (def. not right-wing nuts) have held and expanded their majority in Congress since 2002 and won all 3 branches handily in 2008 as well as a number of state legislatures and governorships.

But, ok, let's measure nutiness by school strictures codes. Where I live, the public schools in dominantly Democrat city districts are the only ones with dress codes. Some schools in the U.S. don't allow students to wear a shirt with the U.S. flag, wear or write anything critical of Obama, or bring a toy soldier to school. Some schools lead chants of worship and praise for B.O. but do now allow students to practice their religion (especially Christianity *brrrrr*). And after years of political pressure by those who know better (a.k.a. 'progressives'), high school kids can no longer smoke cigarettes.

Yeah, those "right-wing nuts" are out of control.

They let girls wear trousers at our school the first year I went to sixth form, and it was very odd....

I bet the pedophiles don't know who to touch now.

As far as I'm aware the first amendment does not cover skirt sizes.

When I was in middle school in the early '80's, it was fashionable for girls to wear very short shorts...yes..we loved it..no, it did not "distract" us

It's not about being distracting, it's just not appropriate for a professional or school environment to wear a skirt that short. Like I said before, wearing a skirt like that to work or to an interview would be considered inappropriate. Part of going to school is learning how to function in the real professional world and knowing how to dress yourself in an acceptable way is part of that.

It's not a big deal,surprised you didn't get this article from the Daily Mail tbh.

"...yet, the vice-principal felt the need to require shorts be longer..."
You were "at risk" of vice-pricipal's "molestin'!"

"Gawd! Keep them away! Oh, Gawd! the sight of pubescent knees!! I will be drawn to sin!!!"

heh...this had been going on since the 1950's. Such prudes. When I was in middle school in the early '80's, it was fashionable for girls to wear very short shorts...yes..we loved it..no, it did not "distract" us, yet, the vice-principal felt the need to require shorts be longer. We were a very unhappy group of boys.

Not News- my youngest daughters school banned skirts from last September. Thats fine to me- they would have complained if boys wore skirts, and some of the skirt lenghts were too short.

I like what they're doing (I think we should either all wear trousers or give boys the option to wear skirts) (hey, gender equality), but they're doing it for the complete wrong reasons.
"At risk"? I mean, c'mon, really...
@joanielspeak got it in one.

I think it makes sense. A lot of girls who wear uniforms to school hike their skirts up WAY too high. If I wore a skirt that short to work, it would not be appropriate, and it's not appropriate in a school either. If they can't enforce them to wear their skirts properly, then I see no problem with changing the dress code.

The at risk part is completely retarded though.

Make 'em wear burqas! It's the only way to protect them from men and from themselves.
