The “Real” Fashion Police?

April 21, 2010

Pretty much every school has a dress code but some have more problems than others in holding their students accountable.  (Like the school in Indiana that suspended over 150 students on the second day of classes for dress code violations!  …yikes…)

Rather than sending kids home (and missing class) because of a dress code, some schools are getting more creative with their methods…

The Gonzales Independent School District ordered 82 prison-style coveralls for their 2,650-student district.  (Ironically, those jumpsuits, which are most often sold to mental institutions and prisons, will fit in well with the prison-like architecture of many modern high schools.)

As Larry Wehde, the district Deputy Superintendent said, “We’re a conservative community, and we’re just trying to make our students more reflective of that.”  (Gosh darnit! If you youngins aren’t going to uphold my out-dated, illogical moral standards the least you can do is look like it!)

Just as the district got more creative with their methods of dealing with dress code violations, so have the students!

One student said, “I don’t think that jumpsuits are going to work, because my friends actually, instead of it being a punishment, they’ll see it as an opportunity to be like, rebels.  I don’t think there’s going to be enough jumpsuits for everyone in the school.”

Ah, yes…  Larry Wehde, I think you just started a new “counter-culture” fad in Gonzales, TX, which in time will probably be more irritating to you than saggy jeans and halter tops.

    I live in Texas and wow, there are definately some confused people here. “We’re a conservative community, and we’re just trying to make our students more reflective of that.” So making kids feel like prisoners and mental patients is going to make them dress more conservatively? That makes sense…
