This is a question for parents out there of student of Rowan County High School and what their opinions are. My daughter came home yesterday and said that the High School is trying to change the dress code to include the following items that ARE NOT allowed to be worn:

1. Yoga Pants
2. Sweat Pants
3. Skinny Jeans

She also stated that this mainly applies to the females and not the males. Do you feel as if that is sexist and discriminatory? I do. My daughter loves to wear skinny jeans and owns several pair. I would have to and buy her new jeans. They said that mainly the reason for change is because they feel that the males will stop staring at the females as much as they are now. I am sorry, but I think boys are going to stare and gawk at girls no matter what they are wearing. Just my opinion. What do you all think?

Well my daughter and her friends are all wearing either skinny jeans, sweat pants, or yoga pants today to protest. My question is how "SEXY" can a girl be in sweat pants? I've been out to the high school saw how the kids are dressing and I think it's just fine. So if RCSH takes away the above mentioned articles then what's left? Regular jeans, skirts, dresses, shorts.........see the pattern here!!! I think this is just another step in putting school uniforms into place.

I would think they would do away with ALL the Breasts that are being revealed on a daily basis!! The skinny jeans are nothing compared to all the breasts that hanging out.I am sure my son, like other males. likes the look of the breast, more than the tight jeans. If they are going to have a dress code, then they need to Inforce it or do away with it. I think it is a Joke!!!

I don't have kids at RCHS, so I'm not familiar with the previous dress code. But I have to wonder whether there's a policy in place that prevents RCHS boys from wearing their pants down below their underwear. That seems more of a distraction than girls in skinny jeans. But, I can see how skinny jeans and yoga pants lead hormone-driven boys to struggle with paying attention to their algebra teacher.

All the more reason for schools to adopt uniforms. It takes all the hubbub out of the equation, and leaves students in attire that they know is approved (and, conveniently, attire that properly covers everyone).

I feel a strict dress code needs to be implemented for students and staff alike. Many of the students, mostly girls, wear very revealing and provoctive attire. Skinny jeans and tight tops leave nothing for the imagination. Jeans that are tight,low cut, sagging or too baggy are inapproperiate. Students are in high school to gain knowledge of academics, not fodder for future sexual harassment. Kids, males and females alike are being pushed to mature far too quickly and unfortunately many parents let the kids make the decisions and therefore the kids do not respect parents rules. If parents would be parents and not their kids best friend there would be less problems with not only dress issues, but drug and alcohol issues also.

It doesn't matter if girls wore brown paper bags, at this age boys are going to be boys, they are going to look!!
If they change to dress code I don't think they should be allowed to in the middle of the year unless they provide $ to parents for new clothes!! Some patents might have already spent there limit on school clothes and won't be able to afford new ones!!
Maybe the school board should have a meeting and get parents opinions....don't they get elected? Parents should have a say in what their children wear!!

Boys are gonna look no matter what the girls wear. It been that way for thousands of yrs. But, these girls today dress like streetwalkers.As far as the boys pants, the only way my pants would have been below my a** was if Momma had the belt holding them up ,wearing me out with it!

I have a son there,lol,he could tell you that some of the girls mannerisms and raw comments trumps anything,lol,quite funny actually that uniforms would probably raise hormone levels. As a parent,buy what you can afford and what you think is appropriate. the end

Hey,the boys wear their pants low so do the girls. The boys look at the girls who make their breasts known as do the the girls look at the boys......I have a child at RCSHS and I have seen these girls walking around looking like hookers. Yes they need to do something,uniforms no. Teen pregnancy is higher than it has ever been. These girls need to realize that when they get pregnant it is them that get the back lash,not the boys. They get the high 5's. I think that the parents need to look at what their child is wearing to school whether a girl or boy. If you wouldnt wear it then make them change.

Good luck with that! The parents in this county let the kids tell them what to do. You will se a few comment on this,butits the truth and we all know it. And they wonder whats wrong with the youth today. They are friends with their kids and not parents.

I have and generally speaking uniforms are much cheaper than most cloths you will buy for your children. Additionally, if they have uniforms there will be less striation between the haves and have nots. I was against the uniform policy when I was first introduced to it but after shopping for uniforms for my children and realizing savings on clothes I was very happy. I was also happy that the young minds had one less distraction to pull at their attention. Yes, I know, teen boys will look and be distracted even if the subject of their hormone obsessed/controlled mind is wearing a uniform but I think the degree of distraction will be less if the female in question is not wearing low rise jeans that nearly show her girl smile. As to the parents being friends not parents the uniform policy will also correct this problem as the CHILD now knows what is and is not acceptable with clearly defined dress codes stating what can be worn and how it can be worn.
