Were there dress codes when you were attending school?


What were they? Did you consider them to be fair? How much have they changed compared to today?

    Great hub Patty! We are obviously from the same era. I was born in the Midwest and things were very conservative. Not all bad!

    Same experience. Dresses had to be at a certain length, no spaghetti straps for girls or low necklines; boys shirts tucked in, pants with belts, etc. Personally I can't believe how lax things have gotten + how distracting in classrooms today.

    I agree with you totally. As long as kids are reasonably dressed without too much hanging out in one direction or another or wearing symbols that are gang related...learning lessons SHOULD be the focus. Glad that I grew up when I did!

    I guess there is always someway around the rules if kids are bent on stretching them. Kids can be cruel to their peers. Something that we all get through...one way or another.

    It sounds like a very neat and clean look...something lacking when I see how many of the kids dress for school today.

    Personally I would not have a problem with the wearing of uniforms. Makes getting dressed each morning less of a hassle + it is generally less expensive for parents to outfit their kids that way. Your points are also valid. Thanks!
