Well, well, well...I thought this crackdown was only going to be "enforcing the current rules?"

Can somebody explain WHY we arent having this "problem" in Tuscarora, Greencastle, or Waynesboro districts?

Whats the difference?

I guess this amounts to Buddy's endorsement of Romney/Ryan - the dress-alike twins?

I hope there are some parental-watchdog groups working out there.

Please compile numbers on sex and race of violators. And contact some of the usual civil rights groups.

From the early reports - it sounded like a case of sexual discrimination.

I'm pretty sure there weren't too many guys wearing shorts that are too short or shirts that are too revealing? I doubt it's a sexist thing dude. If the guys have size 40's on when they wear size 30, they can make them belt them up so their rears aren't hanging out. You can't exactly stretch the shorts out in length or make the shirt cover enough as an alternative for the young ladies.

Civil rights violation? Are you kidding me? I'm not exactly on board with full blown uniforms, but the situation is almost completely out of control at the high school, and judging by the parental "outrage" at the taking away of one's "individuality" it sounds like a big part of the problem is coming from home. You don't always get to do whatever you feel like doing in life. It's not always "the man" trying to get one over on you.

These are maneuvers of a magician or an illusionist. I snap my fingers and that is where your eyes are focused. In the meantime, I am slipping the coin out of sight. What you have is a dysfunctional school administration that has been unable to make progress academically for years. So, they are snapping their fingers by making the audience focus on the dress code.
