I don’t understand how some students keep their pants from dropping down around their feet! I’m sometimes concerned I’ll see things I don’t particularly want to see if I look too long at some kids and their drawers!

Well, one school has decided to take action, although I doubt the students will actually follow through. Here’s the story from an NBC station’s website in Miami:

>>A school in South Carolina is taking on saggy pants by lending belts to students who show up with droopy drawers.

Students at Northwestern High School in Rock Hill used to face a disciplinary write-up for the dress code violation. But now Principal James Blake is hoping the new approach will get students to think about how they dress and also cut down on the number of students referred for discipline.

“We see kids with their britches hanging down all the time,” assistant football coach and administrative assistant William Cureton told The Herald of Rock Hill. “We want to change the culture.”

Students nabbed for saggy pants will have the option to “check out” a belt for the day.

“We’re willing to try anything in order to give the kids an opportunity to do the right thing,” Blake said.

Junior Joe Johnson told The Herald students should be allowed to dress the way they want. He said giving out belts misses the point.

“They’ll just have one extra belt,” he said.<<

That’s my concern as well. Knowing some as I do, they’d likely just toss them!
