insanity continues! Perhaps the parent(s) are poor and cannot afford new shoes?? When I went to school, boys were not allowed to wear jeans, yet the very poor did so (Jeans were very cheap back then.) and nothing was said or done.
In addition, boys' hair was not allowed to touch their collars. One student of middle-class parentage was taken to the barber by the principal, yet a doctor called the school and informed them that they had better not take his son (whose hair touched his collar)to the barber. That student's hair touched his collar until graduation.
Girls could wear mini skirts (I did), yet were not allowed to wear culottes, which actually covered more! I wore culottes one day and got sent home to change my clothing. Girls were not allowed to wear pants of any kind.
I guess the only difference between back then (50's/60's)and now is that the cops weren't involved--although they were involved ONCE when a student beat the crap out of the middle-school principal.
Students were, for the most part, well-behaved back then--teachers were allowed to hit us...and did so...and then you got hit again when you got home!!
Our graduating class created a petition, which got approved, that the year following our graduation blue jeans could be worn to
I must ask myself how those cops could scare/emotionally damage a 5-year-old? How can they live with themselves?
