Skip to comments.'Booty shorts' and 'sagging'
Posted on 08/02/2009 2:32:28 AM PDT by rellimpank
On the first day of school last year, 17 girls from Roosevelt Middle School were sent home because their "booty shorts" left little to the imagination.
The boys are another story.
Boys are "sagging," their jeans so low that whoever is watching can see the brand of underwear.
The "sagging" jeans and short-shorts fashion was so bad at Roosevelt that Principal Linda Roundtree instituted a dress code for this school year.
But Roosevelt is not alone; nearly two dozen Milwaukee Public Schools have some type of dress code. Roundtree told me that the parents love it because it's a lot cheaper for her students to buy dress shirts and khakis than Baby Phat and Guess jea

a crack problem is NOT always a drug problem , it seems
BTW-My son is the ONLY one who wears a tie to his Sunday School class-fortunately by his choice.
yes, everything is so casual (sloppy) anymore. travel, theater, church, symphony.. and all ages.. not just the young people
You tell the jury pool from the defendants by their tee shirts and jeans vs. jackets and ties.
Reading this makes me SO GLAD that nearly 100% of all schools here in New Zealand have a strictly-enforced school uniform code.
—yep—ankles to wrists to neckline, not form-fitting ,blue for boys, pink for girls, no exceptions— would seem okay to me-—
—explained in the article-
No, actually the parents love it because the school is the bad guy for having a dress code, while the parent gets to be the kid's 'buddy' and not have to take a leadership role at home.
Except, of course, for the limited handful of parents who take the school to court for infringing on the kids' rights, who stoke their kids' to rebelling at school.
The uniforms here are quite sharp-looking: skirts for girls (below the knee) or long dresses (winter); shorts for boys or long trousers (winter). Collared shirts, knit jersey, tie, blazer. Tall sox for boys, dark hose for girls. Sensible shoes. The school stipulates which combination shall be worn depending upon season and weather. And haircuts also follow a stipulated pattern in many (not all) schools.
It sounds like an extravagance, but it is actually alot cheaper to outfit kids this way. As they grow out of Uniform, it can be sold second-hand to families with younger kids. And you’re buying good clothing, and not paying ridiculous prices for brand and fashion.
Kids find it pointless to try to own $200 sneakers because there is limited-to-no opportunity to wear them at school: not even in gym class.
I went to a job interview in suit and tie....to be interviewed by the chubby manager in tied-dye dress, earrings made from bear pull tabs all capped out in a cloth cap.
Middle school!? WTFO.
All the more reason to not allow low class people into high class places.
Now that would be a weird scene.
Dress codes should definitely be implemented in the schools. This will not only prepare students for the workplace but will take away the peer pressure to conform by purchasing ridiculously expensive clothing that no self-respecting adult would even wear around the house.
The kids can dress like hookers and convicts on their own time.
I’ve heard that it is prison lingo for “I’m available”. Think about it. I can wear any of my pants without a belt and my butt will not show.
It’s America’s ADD (Adult Deficit Syndrome) - no one wants to grow up and be responsible.
I wore a suit to a friend's out of state funeral. The Minister and I were the only men there wearing a suit. When I came in, the funeral director told me where to sit, he wrongly assumed that I was a pall bearer.
So does Mobile County (Alabama) public schools. It's worked out real well.
The GC this morning interviewed a Mich lib retard in Grand Blanc re: the Buick Open 17th hole drunks. Moron could barely put two words together. And these pathetic losers VOTE! We’re finished!
Cowboy School rules for:
Arizona, Texas , Colorado , New Mexico, Wyoming , Montana , Utah , Idaho and the rest of the Wild West are as follows:
1. Pull your pants up. You look like an idiot.
2. Turn your cap right, your head ain’t crooked.
3. Turn down that blasted car stereo! That thumpity-thump crap ain’t music, anyway. We don’t want to hear it anymore than we want to see your boxers! Refer back to #1!
It is just the ghettoization of the American youth.Dress like a pimp or a banger if you are a boy, or dress like a tramp or a ho if you are a girl.That is the only way to get respect. I blame MTV for the decay of youth today.
But on the other hand, Obama wants a uniform for the youth too, only it comes in the form of a brownshirt and jackboots.
Sagging pants are a prisoner’s sign they are looking for some loving.
What’s with those ugly shoes?
Did you get the job?
I didn’t notice any shoes.
> So does Mobile County (Alabama) public schools. It’s worked out real well.
That’s great to hear!
School uniforms are such a *logical* conclusion to so many adolescent issues, I don’t know why parents everywhere don’t demand that they be (re)introduced to their district’s schools.
Having seen how well it works I would not voluntarily send my kids to a school without a strictly enforced uniform policy.
Dress codes are a joke.. Uniforms and this and all other stupid crap like this goes away.
Every successful industrialized country in the world requires uniforms for school children, yet in the US, nope.
Just one of a plethora of reasons the public school system in the united states is an absolute festering puss pool of educational malpractice.

A new law goes into effect on Friday that bans big britches. The city council voted last week to get make it illegal to wear pants that expose underwear and too much skin!
If you're caught in low-hanging pants, you could get slapped with a $100 dollar fine and 8 hours of community service. Mayor Stan Wright says droopy drawers aren't a big problem, he just wants to keep it that way. "I think when your crack is showing you know there's just some things not presentable. You know some people's born ugly like me that's something you can't help but a lot of people can help the way they dress."
The American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) believes restricting clothing is a violation of one's "personal freedom of expression."
