Should Skinny Jeans Be Banned at School?

Skinny jeans have been trendy for so long now that it feels like they're here to stay. But at one Connecticut school district, they might be banned altogether. The board of education in Meriden held a meeting on Tuesday evening to discuss whether to ban skinny jeans -- and other tight-fitting clothes -- at school, local news channel WFSB reports.
Under the new rule, skinny jeans, leggings, leotards and spandex would be banned, due to being a "distraction." The new policy would also require that undergarments be worn inside an outfit (are that may kids really wearing their underwear outside of their clothes?).
But social studies teacher and teacher’s union representative Geoff Kenyon argued against the policy, Patch.com reports. "The overwhelming feeling in the building is that we are channeling too much valuable time, energy and resources into a futile pursuit," Kenyon said. The vote will likely take place on April 3. Do you think skinny jeans should be banned at school -- or are they totally harmless? We think the school district will be hard-pressed to get kids wearing unfashionable jeans.
