Are skinny jeans to blame for failing grades?

One school district seems to think so.

The Meriden School Board of Education in Connecticut is weighing a proposal to ban jeans and leggings that they say are too form fitting and distracting to other students, WFSB-TV reports.

The school district already has a dress code that requires students not wear anything that would distract other students from learning.

But under the new rules, skirts, shorts, pants and dresses should not be “form fitting” which means that “undergarments and private body areas must not be evident or visible through clothing,” the TV station said.

Do you think skinny jeans should be banned?

  1. No, as long as it's not incredibly revealing.
  2. Yes, kids don't need to wear form fitting clothing.
  3. I'm not sure.
