Enforcement lax? Let them wear slacks.

So, we read today that school uniforms are now finding their way into Rockingham County. They are going to start with a single elementary school and perhaps spread the policy to other schools in the future .  Rockingham officials are looking to oxford shirts and the like to “reduce or eliminate on-campus violence“, reduce “negative peer pressure“, and somehow, “help student test scores to improve“.  But, what’s wrong with this picture?

“…The school board adopted a formal policy in 2002 that says sagging pants, midriff tops and other items are not allowed. But that policy is rarely enforced, board members say.”

Just like here in Guilford County, Rockingham’s current dress code is not the problem, the absence of an enforcement backbone is the problem.
