Allentown School District Bans Jeans, Cargo Pants

The Allentown School District will feature a new dress code next year. Regulations differ slightly for different age groups, but for high school kids, here’s the rule: No skinny jeans, no cargo pants. Yes polos, yes khakis. (Gray and navy blue shirts for one school; yellow and royal blue for another.)

See how happy they are?

But what happens if they disobey? The Morning Call has the scoop: A. Students won’t be allowed in their classrooms without proper attire B. They will face detention and/or suspension if they repeatedly refuse to wear their new uniforms. In a deliciously cruel punishment, they may also might be forced to maintain the school’s “uniform bank.”

This may sound a bit extreme, but any rule that bans cargo pants is a sound one. [Morning Call]
