Evanston, IL - Land of Leggings

Evanston hardly EVER gets national attention...isn't it great that the on going dispute over leggings made the front page of the LA Times today. http://www.latimes.com/opinion/opinion-la/la-ol-leggings-ban-school-20140327,0,2085738.story#axzz2xC...

It's amazing all the stupid crap schools, governments, etc waste their time and our money on.

@IllinoisLibertarian, it truly is amazing. I wish the teachers had communicated a more thoughtful description of the dress code so as to prevent the anxiety and frustration of many students and families (not to mention the administration's distraction from other issues). The principal has acknowledged that her school has been inconsistent with their dress code policy's communication and enforcement. More important, though, is the important discussion surrounding girls being somehow "responsible" for boys' inappropriate (or distracted) behavior based on what they wear.
