Top 5 Most Ridiculous School Dress Codes For Students In IL
All schools have at least some kind of dress code and here are some of the most ridiculous in Illinois.
Memories Of School Dress Codes For Students In Illinois
I don't remember having many dress codes in school. My parents used to buy me beer logo shirts all the time. I had the coolest collection for a middle school kid. The teachers didn't care. No way I could get away with that nowadays.
The only school dress code incident I can recall was in high school. There was a student who dyed his hair blue. He was threatened with a suspension. It was quickly back to the original color. I can't imagine that happening anymore.
School Uniforms Are Now A Big Thing
When I was a kid, the only places that had uniforms were private or religious schools. Now, even public schools have them. In fact, my daughter had to wear one in middle school. It makes shopping for clothes a lot easier.
