Parent sees undue attention to dress code

March 19, 2013
The Marietta Times

My daughter came home from school recently and let me know that they were all informed that next year yoga pants would be banned. First I thought this was a joke and then the more I thought of it, I can't really believe that this is what the newest crusade is going to be. Last time I checked I have not seen much of an issue with a sporty clothing and I am friends with numerous students, friends, parents and teachers, but have yet to hear or see any comments like, "my child got a D on that test because they were distracted by Susie's zebra print yoga pants!" Now I have been up to the school at least four to five times a week to pick my student up and have seen more than enough skin and assets due to low cut tops, painted on jeans, dresses/skirts with panty hose or tights, and leggings ... but yoga pants are going to be the target? Come on Marietta, you seriously have to tell us all that this is more of an issue than the ongoing and growing drug and alcohol issue going on at the school? Than the fact that these "student athletes" are tweeting about how they have "gotten out/avoided" their random testing? Those are OK for the powers that be to over look and not address? But yoga pants, that is what is going to be voted on by the board because a group of teachers decided that this is a top priority. I really think that the priority needs to be reevaluated!
