big pimpin' in the middle school parkin' lot
Last week, I picked Natalie up from school when she had to stay late for extra help. As I sat in my car in front of the school waiting, I couldn't help but stare at the young girls hanging out on the school lawn.
No, no, not like that. I was staring in horror. Thongs sticking out of their low cut pants, shirts that were cut off just below their newly formed boobs, ass cracks peeking out from too-tight jeans and t-shirts emblazoned with the Porn Star logo.
My mother often chastises me for letting Natalie go to school in baggy pants and sweatshirts. If mom only knew what the other girls were wearing, she probably wouldn't mind Natalie's outfits at all. I'd prefer she dress down then dress like a ho.
County Commissioner Curtis Adams said a county school principal was wrong in barring several students from taking part in an eighth grade graduation because they were "overdressed."
Like Nancy said, shouldn't we be rewarding the kids who are fully dressed these days? Especially in this age of pop idols who practically bare it all on stage and screen, I hardly think overdressed is something to punish kids for.
Look at the kids in question:
See the one on the right? The principal told him he looked like a pimp. A pimp. That's an eight grader, an honor student, getting that attitude from his principal.
What the hell is wrong with our school system that we hear stories like this everyday, principals and teachers who haven't a clue as to what a good education really involves.
It certainly doesn't involve punishing kids for being dressed up nice. Personally, I'd rather have a son who dressed like a pimp than a daughter who dressed like a ho.
