  • ALANA: If you want to do something useful maybe you could: #1. Get all the kids to quit putting unnecessary apostrophes in plural words. "VOICE'S would be a good place to start. If you want to call something "STUPID" spelling it "VOICE'S" is. That's like saying the cat's ran down the street after dog's bit the cat's tail's off. "..bit the CAT'S tails off" is the correct punctuation because that denotes the tails were owned by the cats "...cats running down the street." denotes more than one cat. @2: try to get people making ads to stop saying "SMOKE" sausage is on sale rather than "SMOKED" sausage. That would be more helpful than bucking the system just to be disaqreeable. Ask yourself if the battle you plan to join is really worth all the time and energy you'll expend.

  • mamaj I would tell alanna the same thing face to face. As to dress code interfering with learning, maybe that wouldn't be an issue if they followed what is in place. Alanna says that she doesn't follow the dress code and that is a problem. The ones that follow the dress code have no problems learning. The ones not following it are to blame for any disruptions in the learning environment because they have decided the rules don't apply to them. And yes when I was in school I was expected to follow the dress code to the letter and all infractions were dealt with. Dress code enforcement wouldn't come between education if the students would follow what was on the books. Students may have opinions but disregarding school policy to call light to those opinions is not a mature way to deal with the situation. I will say it again, abide by school policy and there won't be teaching disruptions.

  • i agree with having a dress code and i agree with the posts about the workforce rules, but i have a child that goes to west and all i hear when he comes home is exactly what alanna is saying. " tuck in your you have a belt....button top button....lets go to the office....let me call sercurity...." Rules are made to be followed, YES but when it comes in between learning in the classroom and a distraction there is an issue. and there is an issue. look this girl is just stating her opinion. this is her experience in high school and they do deserve to be heard. did yall forget what it was to be young or are you so grown up that you wont even listen to what your children are expressing to you? and really there is no need to call this young girl a spoiled brat, wonder what her dad would have say about that. typing and saying face to face are two different things arent they? :)

  • There were strict dress codes when I was in school (late 60's-early 70's). Our parents knew the dress code and we knew we would get our butts busted (lovingly) if mom or dad had to come get us from school. We wouldn't lose our iphone, ipad, wii, x-box but we did learn that if an adult tells you to do something "DO IT" (unless it was physically harming you). get your "voice" when you are 18, working, paying taxes, footing your own bills. So for right now the teachers and tax payers are your boss. So if you want your "paycheck" (education), quit your whining and use your time at school for what it was intended.

  • Obviously grammar isn't your super power. Seriously, a cape? Wow, how old are you?

  • alanna, get a high tech job for a company like Google. They wouldn't mind if you wear stripes --you could probably wear your cape! =P

  • Oh and alanna you might want to consider paying closer attention in English class. Your post lacks punctuation and capitalization. Guess you'd learn more if you'd follow the rules.

  • You're in for a rude awakening when you enter the workforce. All places of employment have dress codes that ALL employees must abide by or they get fired. Maybe you and your classmates would receive less harping if you'd follow the dress code instead of going against it. Quit being a spoiled brat and follow the rules.
