    So if Johnny can't read its solely the schools fault? Maybe parents can get back to being parents and actually take responsibility for there childs development. Maybe read the kid a book go over ABC at home? Institute discipline at home. Teach manners maybe? Oh yeah this is all the responsibility of the school?

    @fayban Of course it isn't solely the schools fault but the point was there are things involving education they SHOULD be concentrating on, now dress codes for adults who aren't students.

    @fayban Not completely the school's fault but they have a hand in it. School's however should never have a hand in what the kid's parents are wearing as it's none of their business. And yes, the school should be taking more care about making sure the kids actually learn instead of trying to pull nanny-state bullshit.

    Ridiculous. If you can go to the gas station wearing what you're wearing you can drop your kid off at school wearing it. And what are they going to punish them with? Detention?

    Stupid.

    See ... this is what happens when you give government, schools, etc. to much authority ... they will invade your life and attempt to make your decisions for you!

    I understand where they are coming from (anyone who's ever been in a Walmart can...), but that's unenforcable really. Sone people now days have ZERO shame...

    So, for whatever reason the alarm didn't ring when it was supposed to. You have just enough time to drop the kids at school on time if you jump in the car wearing your robe. But the school would prefer you be dressed for a fashion show as opposed to the kids arriving on time? C'mon. Anyone who makes a habit of driving the kids to school while still in their pj's has a bigger problem than the school can solve. I suppose this also means the sweats you wear to the gym aren't acceptable either? Whatever happened to "mind your own business"?

    Nobody's suggesting that schools shouldn' t teach, but teaching and learning doesn't occur in a vacuum. Parental attitude might be the most important factor. The ones who respect the school and staff, are supportive, and reinforce both learning and discipline generally have kids that are easier to educate and more academically successful than parents who are disrespectful, indifferent, and unsupportive if not hostile.
    Specific to a dress code inside the school, it'd be nothing unusual, even for a public institution. Try going to court in pajamas and curlers. OTOH suggesting a dress code for parents that stay in their car, it's over-reach.

    @JustTheFacts In what way failed? IMHO modern educators are far better educated, trained and professional than the ones I remember. Please try to remember that just because you hear something over and over doesn't make it true, except for in Idiot America.

    @Knightkore Might one infer that you feel single mothers are part of a problem with schools or education. If so, thank you for endorsing my point, that education does not happen in a vaccuum. Student achievement and therefore "school quality" are affected by a variety of factors, many of which are beyond the control of teachers and schools.

    Education these days is more about behavior modification than education. Behavior modification including: prescription drugs for so-called ADHD, cops handling matters instead of detention or the principal or parents, dress codes [although I do agree with not allowing shirts with curse words or hateful statements], and now they want to BM parents who don't even enter the school? No wonder we're getting dumber

    IF they are getting out and walking on campus, then yes. IF they are in their cars then no. I have seen parents come to functions looking more like the exact opposite of a role model than any kind of good example.

    If Florida is anything like I remember it, there will be shapely young Mom's exposing as much as their succulent figures as possible without breaking the laws, and then there will the occasional 60-75 year old woman, who insists on wearing thong bikinis, and the male counter part of the same age, with a beer gut that looks like they are in their 9th month, who'll insist on wearing speedoes, while either sending their grandkids off to school or welcoming them home, to the great embarrassment of the kids and the amusement of the other kids on the bus, lol. For the sake of the wonderful images of the young MILFs, I suppose we need to sacrifice and tolerate the folks, male and female, who should not be wearing revealing clothes, lol. But it's not like it is a HUGE problem. It only happens once in a while- it's just that a lot of (usually retired) relocated Floridians (usually from the Northeastern USA) are often CONTROL FREAKS, they are called 'condo commandos' and want to rule just about every aspect of other people's lives, lol.

    Absolutely!
    Teenage boys should not be deprived of the occasional hot mom. Remember, this is school and if common core can legally corrupt a mind , I see no reason why hot moms can't either.

    @HawkTheSlayer - Teenage boys should be deprived of everything . . . put in a locked, padded room with a PC and internet connection, kept away from all polite society, until at least the age of 20. But that's just my opinion. Based on experience. Just sayin'.

    @Denizen_Kate - <sarcasm font> Yeah, because that will make them ever so much more enticing than they are now at the age of 20. </sarcasm font>

    But we hear you...

    @HawkTheSlayer That is what i am talking about HOT MOMS School is not school the way I was taught It is training camp for kids to learn how to obey and live like you are told to. If they would let kids out of the class room once in a while they would have ADHD

    "Parents need to lead by example" and enacting a dress code is allowing them to lead?? I believe that this would be defined as following. Morons!!

    This is no doubt brought to us from the same crowd who introduced the world to "participation trophies" and "approved snacks".

    I could never even dream of a dress code for parents. That would be too far.

    However, I would like for people to realize that LEGGINGS AREN'T PANTS!!!!!

    I don't see how they have any way to enforce this except for when the parent comes inside the school or to school events. I do not see how they can tell a parent what to wear just while they are dropping off a kid.

    Absurd! Where do these people get the idea that they can just trample people's rights. Beware the Nanny State and the Sheeple who allow it!

    Nanny State is a Republican Term - Regulations are needed to control big business - republicans want - Business regulating Business and Government regulating people - They only call it Nanny State when it is a Regulation on Business

    @JaneOberg Unfortunately you missed the point. I don't want the government regulating people to death, nor are we even talking about big business! We are talking about a SCHOOL district wanting to control how people dress; another school district recently took away some kids food because the SCHOOL didn't think it was healthy. Bloomberg, as Mayor of NYC, tried to regulate the size of soft drink containers, the amount of salt you could eat...ad nauseum. Don't you see what is happening here? Big government grows larger every day. That should really bother you. If it doesn't, then you are a sheeple (no disrespect intended). You just don't mind the government running every facet of your life. That is a nanny state regardless of what side of the isle you are on. But I do mind! Our great country could NOT have been built that way. By the way, I am a Reagan conservative.

    You are right - I misunderstood the use of the Term :-). When they regulate individual rights thru business it is just as wrong as personal regulations - I am Against regulating personally - I am For regulating business and government closely - I am not sure if that makes me a Sheeple or not :-) but that is my position. Thanks for the information.
