As a policy, it doesn't sound very progressive. In fact, it sounds draconian and highly discriminatory against women.

David Adney is a class act - went to school there and in the past the memos have also been for the males too - what not to wear, so it's not always about the girls. Mr Adney is running that building and he has to have rules - good for him

Just make the playing field level. If girls want to wear the most revealing outfits, then they have no right to complain when the boys look at them and make comments.

So the people saying "uniforms fix everything" obviously don't have kids or they'd know how expensive it can be to purchase and maintain. Families with less cash on hand get the short end of the stick if they can only afford one or two outfits. It's always easy to devise solutions with other people's money, isn't it?

Everyone relax, he's not asking the girls to dress like nuns. That being said, a school is NOT the place for young ladies, or young men with the sagging pants, etc., to dress the way some of them do.

And you are right, xyz123q. Just because we agree little girls shouldn't wear spandex in school doesn't mean we're going to walk back 50 years of women's rights along with you.

This look is making its way back again eh? Soon office workers will be wearing leggings again when they shouldn't be.

For those saying this is discriminatory against girls don't worry as Adney is all over the boys for "shagging" and other classy attire. He runs a straight ship.

I find it interesting that the challenge today at Minn. schools is the dress of certain students. Where are the parents? Dressing like a street walker maybe exciting but it is positively tasteless. It shows the limited character of the culture and the unfortunate lack of parental control, unless they are endorsing the clothing selected it would indicate that the level of parental taste has sunk to the level of Jerry Springer's audience.
