This is to Wendy:
Sorry to disagree with you Wendy but when I have male students (with their
hormones working overtime already) oggling at female students (with their
bellybuttons, breasts, and upper thighs or whatever exposed to the max)
instead of paying more attention to what they SHOULD be concentrating on
during ANY class, then SOMETHING has to give and common sense dictates a
dress code of some sort--Otherwise,........anything goes!
At our h.s. we have initiated a dress code--and I feel we're still pretty
flexible. Before the code was enforced, there were alot of distractions
(examples above). And it was not just the girls, but also the boys with
the saggy pants and no belt that, on occasion, dropped down so far that the
wearer would be tripping on his own trousers wrapped around his feet with
the underwear (if they were wearing any at all) exposed. These kids are
not being totally denied their right of expression-rather, they are
expected to dress in moderation and in good taste. And, why not???!! Would
anyone want to teach in a "circus"-like atmosphere that this would
generate? Teaching is tough enough and has enough distractions without the
clothes issue to deal with too.
