My sophomore daughter texted me a little while ago telling me she received a dress code violation.
Apparently for a hole in her jeans.
Now I'm not a fan of holes in pants but it's a fashion statement "again".
Brand new Hollister Jean's!
And I can tell you that they are not ridiculous shredded either.
Now she has duct tape over the hole...

This isn't the reason I'm pissed though.
She is also on the school volleyball team....
The spandex uniform shorts are a damn pedophiles dream! I kid you not!
Cheeks poking out all over.....

I was already mad that they are not allowed to carry backpacks or purses in school because of the juul-vape "epidemic"...
A school full of teenage girls not allowed to carry a purse... think about it.....

My daughter is considering a tampon Tuesday protest...
Tampon earrings..
Tampon necklaces...

I hate schools....
Stop running them like prisons.....

Rant over...

Have you seen what teachers wear to school, It is 100X worse than the students.

I kid you not, there is a guy called mr. Nipps, and another female teacher with triple D breast that doesn't wear a bra!!!
I didn't believe it until I saw it.

I'm with you, I hate schools (most) too, and the food is WORSE than prisons.

Here's the thing.

School uniforms are a drag. As most British people will tell you, its entirely uncommon for a school to operate without some form of uniform, everyone dressing in the school colours. Blazer, pull over, shirt, trousers, sensible dress shoes, not sports shoes of any sort, was how my senior school uniform was comprised. However, many of these things are about as well suited to young bodies as a bullet to the head is suited to long term health and well being. Blazer arms are always either too long, or eighties short as the young person changes shape, the shirts will always either be bunched up at the waist, making one appear to puff out like a popcorn kernel under microwave abuse, or alternatively, stretch across ones torso like an over strained sausage skin.

Some folk will simply never look right in that get up, no matter what they do, and I was one of them. Until my body finished changing shape, no such thing ever looked right on me. I only looked reasonably well put together in black jeans, black t-shirts, bovver boots and in winter, a coat in addition to all that. The fact that I was never able to wear anything that suited my body shape, was aggravating, but in all honesty, I had much bigger problems at school than what I was wearing.

But in the states, most schools do not have uniform codes which I would consider uniform in the slightest. You wear what you want, with relatively small exceptions, mostly derived from a puritan outlook on life held by the authorities, something that has never been shaken off despite the passage of time. Seems to me that there is a damned sight more leeway given to American kids about this stuff. The hypocrisy though of the sports kit is indeed laughable, and from that perspective I can entirely understand your ire.

Insane. And I've had the same thought about the sports uniforms that schools have or allow the girls' teams to wear. Chester the Molester's dream come true.

The overreaction with banning back packs is just STUPID. Kids are just going to fit the vapes in their pockets. I swear these people making these "policies" don't stop and think it through.

It would be so fantastic if every single girl in that school one day each would come to every class with a GIANT box of tampons and a GIANT box of the biggest maxi pads on the market, balanced on top of their books. Let the big boxes keep falling off of the desks and in the hallway and all sorts.

I would also love for these administrators to write you a letter explaining EXACTLY why the hole in her jeans is a problem.

My wife and daughter both like the idea of uniforms.
School wise it's one less thing to think about or get bullied for.
And my wife works at a credit union. She is constantly updating her wardrobe.
The men can get by much cheaper than women.

All I will say about uniform as a route to avoid bullying, is that it does not damned well work.

If I had been rocking up to school in what I called civvies every day, then no one would have come near me, leave alone messed with me, and I would have preferred that. As it turned out though, set phasers to daggy as hell everyone, because here comes a fellow who looks like a marshmallow which was over the fire too long! I got bullied for the way I looked in uniform, I got bullied because my shoes didn't cost sixty pounds for a pair, I got bullied because my hair was only cut when it got too long for regulation, rather than being styled expensively and laboriously at a barbers shop on the weekly, then preened and pecked at every morning for an hour.

They will find something, anything, if they are the sort to find anything at all.

If I had been in toe capped boots, jeans and a t shirt, or those things and a leather in winter, I can guarantee to you, the other kids would have stayed the other side of the room, and this was proven every time we had a non-uniform day. The whole rest of the week, crapped on from height. Non-uniform day? Not a peep. People moved out of my way, moved to the other end of the classroom when I walked in, looked in a different direction when my gaze met theirs.

Just imagine if they spent as much energy on education as they do on dress and hair. Stupid!

I would agree with you on this for the most part. It's been a while since my kids were in school, about 10 years. At that time I would drive my kids to school now and then and that's where the "most part" comes in. I regularly saw these high school girls showing up at the school wearing less than the average porn star. Seems to me that the old saying of "Give them an inch" comes into play. Though I don't agree with a dress code, some times something needs to be done. That said having a hole in your jeans is the style today as I understand it. When I was in school if my jeans got a hole in them I would toss them out and get a new pair. Here they banned printed t-shirts and a lot of parents went nuts. Trouble was kids came to school in shirts that promoted drugs or alcohol, had sexual content and so on. So I can see the need for a dress code, like everything else it's taken to the extreme. I read an article a few years ago where first graders were given the task of making a ball cap to show what one of their parents did for a living. One kid went to school with army men glued to the bill of his hat. His dad was in the army. He was sent home because his hat promoted gun violence, as they called it. Thing is where does it stop? I don't think this is right, you don't like that, they don't like something else. You can't leave it to the parents, they buy these kids drug and alcohol t-shirts (For example). I mean some people think that a girl should be covered neck to ankle. I do however agree 100% that teaches should set a better example.

i will go one further, it's not the dress code, it's the zero tolerance policy for_______

if the school doesn't think for themselves, how do you expect them to teach kids to think for themselves

Is that the goal?

I was going to say something about the volleyball shorts, but from all the jokes here about f# school girls I don't think anyone cares.

Girls at my high school weren’t supposed to have any cleaveage, so naturally they would get written up for it. Well the front desk receptionist also did detention, she was old and big breasted and she showed off those desiccate husks believe me. Being exposed to that every time you got written up was enough to keep you on the narrow.

Pretty sure it’s anything goes now, which I am fine with. I was just never a fan of the don’t do as I do but do as I say mantra of days gone by.
What’s good for the goose is good for the gander is much better.

I agree with Rick Sanchez' opinion of schools:



School no longer serves it's original intended purpose with any reliability, consistency, or competence. I honestly think you could give a kid a device connected to the internet, like a smartphone, with zero restrictions or parental control, let them stay home and do whatever they feel like doing, and they would probably learn more in 13 years than they do from going to school.

Yeah they would spend a lot of time goofing off. Playing video games. Looking at porn. But they would also occasionally venture to wikipedia, or come across a person who inspires them or something. I'm not saying it's a good idea to do this, obviously! I'm just saying school is so bad, I think there is at least room for argument that this would be at least equal or better. Because Some kids would spend a lot of time reading and learning. It would not be much different than school: the kids who like to goof off will do that and the kids interested in learning something will do that.
