Wtf is going on with this goofy school system. They wanna fuse at kids cause they have a Lil pink in their hair, or the dyed their hair blonde and it got a Lil orange hue to it. They fuse about
piercing's and small stuff like that. Want let the kids express them self at all, in any shape form or fashion. I'm not saying let the kids wear vulgar shirts, or shirts that poke fun at people or say negative things. Not saying let the kids wear pants that have holes all in them,
(even though we did as a kid). They wanna bitch about all this Lil crap, but they have a lot bigger issues to deal with. Like all the drugs, teachers messing with students, and head honchos getting arrested. They need to worry about those things. Not some girl that has pink in her hair, or a boy who's hair has a orange hue to it after he bleached it and colored it blonde. Or kids that have a piercing or two. Hell y'all expressed yourselfs when y'all were growing up and going to school, and look at you now, y'all graduated school and got good jobs. If a kid doesn't want to learn they r not gonna learn period. So all these strict rules on them about wear this not that, color hair this not that, earrings ok but not other piercings, ain't ginna make a differance. They r ways to enforce what u r trying to do with out taking away their freedom to express. GROW UP CROCKETT COUNTY HIGH SCHOOL

It's called looking professional. If they don't dress the part now they never will. Though I do see your point, most of them won't do anything with their lives anyway but do drugs and live off the government. So why make them dress decent?

wasn't saying that they won't ever do anything with their lives. Just cause a kids expresses themselves as a kid doesn't mean they will grow up and do nothing with their life's. I know a guy that all he ever did was wear t-shirts and jeans and rode his bike all the dang time. He grew up, still rides his bike during the summer and is a airplane mechanic. You have got kids out there that wear 200.00 dollar jeans, 200.00 dollar shoes and 150.00 shirts that do drugs an wont ever do anything with their life. The way u dress doesn't have anything to do with that. It's what the individual choses to do with their life. Clothes DO NOT MAKE A PERSON, THE PERSON THEMSELVES MAKE THE PERSON.

the rules have been there for along time. you have had 3 kids in crockett, the rules where there then and they will be there for a long time. I undestand what you are saying about being more relaxed about what they wear, but i also agree that they are trying to train them to be professional. no REAL job is going to hire someone with facial piercings or tattoos and wild, colored hair. I know that it shouldnt matter what a person looks like, but that is the way it is.

But the clothes say a lot about the person. Like if they care about their self image or not. Clothes don't have to be expensive. Just nice. And you can't say much about them paying a lot for their nice clothes when all that hair dye, body jewlery and tattoos cost just as much if not more.

I know I had three kids there. I didn't like the rules then. We r always told not to judge a person by the way they look. I just think its crazy. A person with tattoos and piercings can just as good a employee, student, doctor, lawyer as one who doesn't have them. And the piercings can come out when they go to work if that's they way the job is. It's gonna get to a point were we can't do a dam thing that we want to.

hair dye cost 10 dollars and the body jewelery cost 10-15. I've only got one tattoo. And if someone wants to pay that much for their clothes, that's fine if they can afford it, I don't have a problem with that. I was just saying, that dressing in nice clothes doesn't make u better than those that wear jeans or t-shirts.

All this dress code isn't about training kids to b professional, they think it's a distraction I'm the school and that's why they do it. I mean come on folks, we were allowed to wear what we wanted to school back In our days, as long as it wasn't demeaning or degrading to others, or vulgar. And we had lots and lots of kids from out era become professionals.

yes, when we were in school we could wear just about anything we wanted. that was then..the kids nowadays, well, they would take things too far and feel they could wear what they wanted. i can see where the dress code should be in place. we grew up in a different time where we actually respected our elders and knew what was okay to wear to school. the kids now just dont care and what is bad, some of the parents dont care either, so it is up to the school to have the rules there for those that dont care. you need to wake up and realize this is a completly different from when you grew up. also, the multi-colored hair,that is a distraction for not only the other students but for the teachers. also, if you dont like it, pull whoever out and homeschool them. if that is not an option, then stop complaining. the rules have been there and they are not going to change.

also, there are better ways of expressing yourself than self mutalation. I just dont see how a parent will let a child 12, 13, basicly anyone under 18 get belly button rings or even tounge piercings. i am sorry, but anyone that allows their kids to do that is just asking for trouble. i have heard people say..well she wont show it to anyone..i am sorry..but if she got her belly done, she is going to be showing it off. kids are NOT like when we were growing up. kids nowadays move way to fast. if a kid wants to express themselves, let them do it in some other way. you said the school needs to worry about other things..yes they do, but it is kind of hard to do when the kids are they way they are and they throw themselves at anyone and flaunt their bodies they way they do with these "self expressions". that is why they have these rules..dont like it, whocares, some of parents do.

When you have a child ,or children in school , they need to learn to respect the rules. If you drive you have to obey the law of the road and if not you get into trouble, simple as that , same should go for school . You are there to learn , not to show your tats or piering off.., my daughter went to school there and if she got in trouble at school she was in trouble at home.Respect yourself so other will respect you !! Thank god she is out in college and well liked and respected my all her teacher and anyone else that comes in contact with her.

actually, tattoo artists and hair dressers have REAL JOBS. And they make some damn good money. Check yourself before you make a statement.

I understand how kids r these days. Hell we we're worse in our day than our parents were in their days. I'm not saying let the kids dress to the point that the girls ate showing off their bodies or that the guys have holes in the crotch of their jeans. I'm saying t-shirts can b ok, I'm also not saying let them color all their hair pink, blue or anything like that, but a Lil strip of color isn't gonna hurt. and I agree if a child gets in trouble at school they dam well should b in trouble at home. It sucks that we can't punish our kids like our parents did us without having to worry about the police or the government knocking down our dang door. I know how kids r these days, I've got three of them. If Y'all act like a kid wanting a piercing is horrible, how the heck would u act if ur child said they were gay. People don't like what's different, but we are all different in our on way. And it's school not a job or a career. Hell guys in our time had hair real long, and parents back then thought that was wrong. But as we started getting jobs and having to work we cut it and did what we had to do. Just cause they do it as kid now, we all say that that's gonna mess up their life. That's such BS, it's like u r saying u have no trust that they will make the right choice. U tell someone that they can't do anything thet want to do, eventually they will go out and do it. I would rather have my kids color their hair a Lil crazy color, or have a piercing than some of the other crap they could get into. Colored hair and a piercing won't kill them or get them arrested. Drugs will hurt them a lot worse. And Alot of kids r doing that crap.

Excuse me? What does a his being gay and wanting a piercing collide together? I'm pretty sure that it doesn't. With your ignorance I would hate for you to be my "parent." Being gay is horrible, schools are horrible for not allowing piercings and tacky hair, why? School is a student's structure. It teaches them of real world. If you get a good job then you can't have pink hair and a million piercings. The only thing pink that will help you achieve is government assistance! These kids need some kind of guidance because most homes aren't offering that to their kids anymore! You, as a so-called parent, should understand that and want better for your children. There are much stricter rules outside of school that they will have to face once they grow up! Are you gonna bitch about those as well?

knowing his daughter I think he's a fine parent. And yes school is to help them get ready for the real world, but for most kids now days they have to actually get out there and be denied for a job or fired because of dress code violations to understand the concept of rules and regulations anyways because they do not all have them in the households in which they live.

It was your generation that raised ours. If we don't respect our elders it's because you didn't take the time to entrench that into our values growing up. Sorry but that's just how it is.

Raising kids to have morals or respect is not up to a generation but up to the parents. My children do have respect and moral and manners. it is easy to blame the generation before for the problems of the next generation. even then you can teach your children but it is up to them if they want to do what is right or wrong. Kids nowadays just dont care.

They do not care because their parents did not raise them to. They are spoon fed by your generation. They get what they want when they want it and you blame them? They are used to getting what they want so when they get out in the real world and they don't get it they are apathetic about everything else. They didn't have to work for things because your generation wanted ours to "have it better than we did". It's easy to blame someone else other than yourself. As for me, I respect my elders. My son will do the same. I was taught to. I wasn't allowed to throw a tantrum and get my way. Maybe it's because I didn't come from money? IDK. The fact that you taught your kid makes you an anomaly. Again, just the way things are now.
