Believe it or not, I was not allowed to wear shorts to my public high school in Florida, but the girls could wear the skankiest skirts ever. I couldnt wear flip flops either, but the broads could rock those open toed shoes as well. Towards the end of school I was being sent home quite often, as I didn't and still don't see any reasoning being these rules, and there was a time when I would have to stop by the principal's office in the AM to show him I was wearing shoes and pants.

You should've started wearing a skirt to school.

What??? You had corrective training at a damn public school? Reminds me of the military. Once, I didn't iron and starch my uniform WHILE ON A DEPLOYMENT IN THE MIDDLE OF THE DESERT and my supervisor made me come to work in a different uniform (including MOPP4) on the hour, every hour, for 2 days. Yes, even during sleepy time.

I could expect crap like that in the military, but that's overboard for a public school. I would have been up in arms.

I went to a pretty gangster high school, and my last two years we had a lot of changes to improve the quality of the school, including a pretty extreme change in staff. By senior year we actually had to wear a lanyard with our ID on it at all times.

I had to do that too in the military. There was a name for it, like a fashion show or something. I was at a training command at the time, so it was unreasonably reasonable, but on deployment in absolute insanity.

Well in most of my school years I never had a dress code or anything up until like the 10th grade... that's when it started getting hectic at the time. Had to wear belts, no open-toed shoes, no facial piercings, no unnaturally colored hair, etc... I feel that was pretty lenient compared to today's standards, but I don't see how there can be a legal/moral basis for faculty enforcing corrective training on students beyond detention or assignments... especially not after school hours in the AM. I mean... that's seriously messed up. That's the state raising children and I don't see how that could have ever been accepted.
Not in public school. No way. And for parents to even let that happen is depressing to say the least.

The real question is how was the photo taken!

Lap top is on a small stand I keep next to my couch/bed, was fiddling around with the webcam on it in between the arbitrary 2 minute moments of silence found on every ****ing prog album.
