Public school dress codes are degrading. This is no mean feat, given how low the standards already are. As good example of the trend comes from the Austin Independent School District (AISD) in Texas. This district has a little over 81,000 students, of whom 27 percent are white. Its current dress code was challenge in a petition supposedly crafted by a group of parents. It reads in part:The current district dress code does not uphold the AISD values of equity, diversity, and inclusion. It contains vague language, arbitrary restrictions, and emphasizes bans on clothing that are primarily worn by females and minorities. It also allows for individual schools to create additional restrictions, which leads to further inequality across our district.This petition touched all the hot-button issues and basically claims that the current dress code is racist and sexist and does not uphold "diversity." Faced with such charges, what could a progressive school district do but capitulate? A new dress code was formulated. Here's how one Austin TV station describes what's coming. Under the new proposed dress code, students would be allowed to wear hats, sweatshirts with hood up, athletic gear and even pajamas. Specifically for girls, spaghetti straps, tank tops, halter top and shorts of any length, as long as their buttocks are covered, would be permitted. The draft says bra straps and underwear waistbands could also show under the new rules. ...Austin is not alone. USA Today ran a story entitled "California school's no-shame dress code empowers students to wear what they want" about the dress code at the Alameda Unified School District in the Bay area. As a concession to the handful of conservatives who might reside in the Bay Area, the district's dress code mandates "clothing that covers genitals, buttocks and areolae/nipples with opaque material." It has been said that civilizations collapse with not a bang, but a whimper. That is, the decay leading to collapse is incremental. It happens step by step over time — much like termites eating away at the structure of a house. This is the path America's K–12 public education system has been on for over a generation. When the public schools across the country aren't indoctrinating their students in multiculturalism and teaching a negative view of America, they are feeding them academic mush. All on the taxpayer's dime.
Always thought uniforms would take a lot of stress off kids.
RC2006 saysAlways thought uniforms would take a lot of stress off kids.That's a good point I had not considered. Kids compete on status all the time. Harder to make anyone feel bad about their clothes if you are all wearing the same clothes.
Girls without an erection will not be allowed in the classroom!
I've heard from folks in Texas that Austin is turning into mini California, not in a good way.Funny how liberals call everything "racist / sexist" the moment they don't like it. I think they seen that tactic work too many times, so why try something new. Got caught in a crime -> call cops racist -> white people start apologizing -> you get away with crime.

But theres still too much Texas in the people here to not be optimistic. Talk to any cop, he doesn't give a fuck about that nonsense. Break the law here and you pay.Work ethic still important and respected here. Also, Texas does not pay Medicaid to able bodied adults, so we don't have the mass handout problem of California. Bums sleeping in parks and harassing you downtown are a legit issue. Pet...
I heard Epstein wrote the new dress code requirements.
The only reasonable, safe school uniform is to mandate students come to school nude carrying nothing but books and M134.
Great! Kids can drag a longer ammo belt if they don't need to carry books.
