Uggs may be ugly in some fashionistas’ eyes, but should they be banned? Yes, according to a Pennsylvania school principal.
The ban takes effect Monday at Pottstown Middle School outside Philadelphia, where the principal, Gail M. Cooper, announced the rule last week in a letter to parents. The ban applies to boots that do not fit tightly around the calf or ankle, such as open-top Uggs. Boots with zippers or laces may still be worn, as long as they remain zipped and tied.
“We have been experiencing problems with some students wearing open top boots and carrying items in their boots that are prohibited in school,” Cooper’s letter read, according to the Mercury newspaper. “Following several problems with these items, I have banned the outdoor, open top boots from our classrooms,” she wrote.
Are the people in charge of schools special-ed graduates? Has this pinhead never heard of a SHIRT POCKET? Or a sleeve inside a book binder?
