Hot pants, G-strings? Not at graduation, Rich Township school board says ( Chicago )
Sun-Times ^ | June 24, 2011 | Sarah Zylstra

Even covered by a gown, hot pants and G-strings are not appropriate attire for a graduation ceremony, school board members in one south suburban district say.

The Rich Township High School Board is considering instituting a strict dress code next year after board members said they were aghast at the attire worn by some of this year’s grads.

“When you come to graduation with hot pants, no stockings, 6-inch heels, G-strings and all other types of attire under a gown, that’s just inappropriate and highly disrespectful,” board member Brunetta Hill-Corley — whose daughter recently graduated from Rich Central in Olympia Fields — said at a board meeting last week.

“Morals do start at home, but in the event they’re not at home, the school district needs to uphold them.”

...

The district is also considering requiring a 2.0 grade point average to participate in the ceremonies

Feral children without parents it looks like. What kind of a mother would let her daughter go out in public like that.

Is that a rhetorical question?

Well, this is what you get after decades of no real dress codes in schools.

When there is no dress code, and anything goes, somebody will do the unthinkable, as happened here. The unthinkable becomes thinkable and likely when you abandon the concept of having any standards in the first place.

I’ve watched “The Brady Bunch” with my kids and their friends. They are amazed that the Brady girls wore dresses to school on that show. I told them that, back in those days, there were dress codes, and girls wore dresses to school. These kids today can’t believe it. It’s beyond their frame of reference in today’s world of lax or no standards.

Morals do start at home

With mama wearing hot pants and g-strings and having a new boyfriend every other week, the lack of morals also start at home.

Cost savings too as they could go from the Auditorium to the banquet room at Denny’s.

Has Rich Central gone ghetto? Years ago it was a highly regarded school, in a nice suburban area.

If you look at some of the school teachers, they also seem to following the music video style.

Oh, believe me, the mothers are who teach the daughters to dress like that. We were laughing at an older woman who's thong was hanging out at a football game and it turned out to be a parent of our son's classmate. Another of his classmates' mother wears so much hoochie mama makeup that the kid came up and touched my no makeup face with the most perplexed look as if he didn't know what faces felt like without all that gunk. Another one thinks she's 16 so dyes her hair just like her daughters and they get matching tatooes and body piercings together. It's aways interesting to see what she's going to wear to events - she never fails to drop jaws. Then there's all the slutty so-it is/isn't-shaved low cut can-I-borrow-that-dime-in-your-back-pocket tight jeans and tight t-shirts with their boobies falling out. Disgusting.

It is imperative that the photo rule be invoked!

We FReepers who don’t live in a certain degenerate Big Sh*tty in the Mid West may otherwise never get to see what the ‘Children of the Corn’ look like when wearing their formal finery.

Hasn't this school board heard that the Democrats and homosexuals run things now?

I see a woman at the grocery store all the time who seems to have no idea how old she is. Long dyed red hair, she is tiny and from the back she looks like a young teen. When she turns and looks at you it is like she is wearing a Halloween mask! She has on too much makeup but mostly it is because she is OLD!

The kid must be from out of town because he didn’t think that was normal. LOL!

Parents who deliberately take their children into places like San Fransicko should be charged with child abuse.

Agreed board member Sonya Norwood: “We have parents who allow their children to wear anything — or half of anything — to school as well as to graduation. . . . “As I watched the teachers or instructors that presided over the ceremony, there are certain undergarments I think they should have had on,” she said. “You’re saying you have a standard that you want the students to uphold, so we have to be the example.’’

Apparently, the teachers in that district like to go "ommando".

Good grief.

Just nuke San Fransicko from orbit, it’s the only way to be sure.

The school officials trash education but want respect? How funny. Schools aren’t deserving of anything more than a thong.
