    Duct taped the baggy pants. Wrong??!!

    Is it wrong?? Sounds like a whinny parent and kid. The stuff kids wear to school I could never have gotten away with 13 years ago when I was in school.

    Talk and discuss. I want to figure out if I am just being callous.

    Whiny Parent, without a doubt.

    If you want to low-ride, you wear long shirts, no one is really that curious if you wear boxers or briefs. He'd probably get mocked anyway, from what it sounds like, at least by me.

    Yet another problem of the modern world remedied by duct tape.

    Whats the big deal with showing your underwear?

    Its still clothes that covers up the parts people dont want shown.

    dress code. School trying to hide the underwear and thong problem. Just the same as the mini mini skirt.

    He was wearing a long shirt. The teacher had to ask him to lift it to see his boxers.

    I understand that its a rule, but whats the reason for the rule?

    Mini skirts expose, boxers conceal.

    Then why dont we just wear underwear without pants?? I see your point, but underwear serves a purpose. It is to be under your clothes thus the name.

    Dumb asses, all around. He broke the dress code, he should get a detention or whatever the policy is. If his dress was REALLY out of code they should call his parents and have him picked up, that's what my HS did. -Probably because their heads were not up their posteriors. Teachers should have no right to duct tape students, :p no matter how goofy they look. I'd be pissed if I were the parents too.

    Whats the difference between walking around in just boxers and freeballing a pair of shorts?

    Words used aside...

    Why be pissed? It's not like the duck tape was applied to the student's skin. Granted the principal didn't have to make him walk around with his shirt tucked in. I think having the parents come and pick the student up should only be a last solution because it causes the students to miss class, which should be avoided as much as possible.

    At the school I was working at last year if your pants were sagging they would put zip ties through a couple of your belt loops to cinch the pants up. That's an excellent and cheap solution IMO. Works just like a belt & they didn't require a tucked in shirt.

    The dad is definitely whiney. He must have done some SERIOUS whining to cause a national news story.

    Maybe it's just a poorly written article, but from what it seems, the underwear was already in view with the shirt down. The article doesn't really make clear how this happened, but the way I read it, his underwear was already visible.

    Wasn't there thread like this and it ended with Brendan posting an Achewood comic?

  14. i go to a public school.

    our new head teacher refuses to let you into classes with anything but black shoes.
    mind you, its not been enforced, and thats after parents voting yes on the dresscode. they will never win.

    apparently, the 1st years were also told that they were not aloud to wear make up... :eyebrow:

    At my old Jr. high school they would duct tape your pant legs around your ankels if you were wearing pants with extremely big pant legs. This only happened to a couple of kids though and there were no complaints about it.

    I'm telling you anyone born after 1989 is so.....so..... I don't know how to discribe them.

    I swear look at the people born in the late 80's compared to born in the early 90's. The differences are incredible. When I was younger we never told on each other. the younger kids always tell on each other. We always got dirty they stayed on the gravel. I explained my theory on my bus ride home to a group of grade 10's 11's and 12's and they see it. I call it now "the years of spoilling". I'm not shure how it is around you, but around where I live. Its like a wall. Normal children on this side 90's kids over there.

    Whats this have to do with this thread? Not much but think about it.
     

  19. whats their alleged problem with baggy pants??

    Well if he's talking about those raver-kid pants with the enormous legs then I'd say the problem is they look ridiculous. :smug:
