2021 Longest School Year Ever Teacher Life Shirt, hoodie, tank top
However, with the public school I can go to Wal-Mart and buy a pair of $11.96 khaki’s (or cheaper) and a $9.99 (or cheaper) solid color collared shirt. That is a whole lot cheaper and looks better than those blue jeans that look like the gas station attendant has been wearing them for a year. I get two or three pairs of khaki’s two or three shirts and spend less than $70.
However, if I go buy two pair of Levi’s I have spent close to $70 or more. Then I buy a few items they like to wear for the weekend and other outings.
It is sad that someone has to dictate to a few what responsible clothing is. I cringe at the mall when the pants drop down below their bottom and they have to walk with their legs spread apart to keep the pants up and the girls pants barely cover their crack and the shirts don’t reach the top of their pants and they are apparently proud of that bra they are showing, assuming they have one on.
In response to this not making a difference at a school, kids not in uniform are exactly how the SRO officer identified troublemakers at a local high school. Were I still in high school I would despise uniforms, but as a parent it takes the hassle out of what they are putting on in the morning. I say everyone should go to plain khaki’s from any store and solid shirts.

Every school should have a dress code. The reason for them is three fold. One it takes the emphasis off the name brands. If all of you remember back to school there was a stigma attached to anyone who did not have the “right clothes.” Now with a dress code that issue is greatly lessened.
Second, it makes an atmosphere of learning. If we are truly preparing these kids to one day be members of the workforce everybody has a dress code. McDonalds has a uniform. Provident has clothes you can and cannot wear. Banks have business attire and Comcast cable guys have uniforms. So if a kid dresses more appropriately for school it does create an atmosphere of respect. If you disagree you have never been a teacher. It is true.
