Uniforms

I had to wear a uniform when I was in elementary school, because I went to a Catholic school. Once I hit public school I swore I would never agree with uniforms again. However, as a mother of a 12 year old boy, I am glad that Trask Middle School has decided to go to a more standard dress code. On more than one occassion I have seen 11, 12, and 13 year old girls wearing clothes that are absolutely not appropriate for their age and boys that wear their pants down below their boxers and frankly, I am glad that someone put a stop to it. I was actually behind a bus one day last year and I watched a girl change her entire outfit on the bus from one that I am sure her mother approved to one that I would not have let my daughter leave the house in. Sitting in class next to someone wearing hardly anything is quite distracting and can lead to more serious problems with girls attracting the wrong kind of attention. I know there are parents that are complaining, but Trask's code is a little more relaxed than others. At least, for now, students do not have to wear only khaki pants or tuck in their shirts and wear a belt and girls are still allowed to wear skirts that are the right length. The students can still wear jeans as long as they are worn at the waist. For those of you that still want to complain, why don't you at least give it a school year before you decide that this is a bad idea...and then come up with a better one.
