ahh the good old days....
we did have dress codes, but not uniforms - I could wear jeans and half tops, but I had to leave the fishnet shirts for the evenings and weekends
I was also once asked not to wear a specific denim jacket to school anymore because it was beat up and written all over - I pointed out that the
signatures was the point - I wanted my friends to sign it and now, 20 years later, I'm so glad I did - that thing brings back some awesome memories,
and I finished out the year wearing it anyway
Thats back when it was all starting though.. kids were getting mugged for their sneakers... twisted...
we can easily blame the changes taking place now, on the people who did that sort of thing
though as a parent i will say, it was much easier getting my kids ready for school in the morning when they had to wear uniforms, but if they didn't
have a uniform code, I still would've taken responsibility for what they wore - I don't care who else thinks something is appropriate or not - it
would've been their choice and my approval (or disapproval)
