School Rules

Recommended Posts

The one rule I don't get is "no hair color other than natural color."

It's not exactly enforced though. I've had two very visible bright pink streaks since school started and nobody's said a thing.

If I had to guess their reasoning for no unnatural colors, I'd say they're probably trying to cut down on distractions. That's how a lot of jobs are too. It could also be "offensive"(I've never understood how a color can be offensive) to other people.

 

I don't remember many of the rules from my schools, mainly because I honestly didn't care about them, lol. If I got in trouble, I got in trouble and nothing changed.

 

One I got in trouble a LOT for were chains. All of my pants had chains. Some teachers cared, others didn't. The schools had set rules, but it really depended on if the teachers could be bothered to enforce them or not.

I still complain about this rule even though I've been at this school for a little over a year; cell phones are allowed, but iPods and MP3s aren't.

Wouldn't a cell phone be more distracting than an iPod?

I mean, no one listens to that rule, but it's still pretty ridiculous.

 

If we don't have school the news will usually have that thing that runs along the bottom of the screen say, "_____ County Schools CLOSED". Either that or they'll have a prerecorded message that calls at about 5:30 in the morning.

 

Oh, and my school will pretty much not be held responsible for anything.

I forget exactly what the rule was, but last year my friend's little purse/bag thing that she kept her gym stuff and books in got swiped, and when she went to the office to say it was lost, they told her it was her own fault for "laying it around" [right outside her stall in the bathroom], and that it wasn't their place to do anything about it.

Her iPod was in there, and she still hasn't got it back.

My school is just retarded.

The rules that make sense are few and far between.

We're not allowed to do much in our school like decorating folders, eating in the classroom, wearing shoes in the classroom, and it can go on and on. Yeah, no shoes xD. We leave our shoes outside of the classroom. We have no lockers either. No cellphones, MP3's, or any kind of electronic. Hairstyles - No bangs, no slicing, no dying, and yeah. We had this foreign girl come in to our school with blonde hair and the school made her dye her hair black o_o It was sad for her xD. Braids only too.

So you can only have black hair at your school? Or is it because she had dyed her hair blonde when it was naturally black?

 

The boys at our school have to wear ties and blazers, yet the girls only have to wear jumpers ;) . We aren't allowed to dye our hair if it isn't a natural colour, ie my hair is dark brown but I could dye it blonde because blonde is a natural hair colour, just not my natural hair colour. No-one takes any notice though. Make-up is not allowed but that rule isn't enforced either! I don't wear make-up or dyed hair, and wouldn't anyway, but even if I did I don't think anyone would actually care!!

We wear uniforms (:

It's not stupid though. Every single school in Thailand uses uniforms xD.

 

And we use private school buses. I mean, they're just normal vans.

Our school isn't really stupid though.

It's just really, really ridiculously strict. Hair, mostly.

That is ridiculous. I do not think a school should have control over your hairstyle. Your hair is a way to express yourself, and I would never in my life change my hair just because the school board told me to. I've never heard of any school that didn't let you wear shoes in the classroom. In fact, we get reprimanded if we take our shoes off. Kind of strange. I'm intrigued, though.

Our school used to have a recording that would call us, but it was too expensive, so they cut it. It was nice, but it's not too hard to watch the news either, or go on the website if you think it's snowy enough to be a delay.

 

Our school this year has a rule that if you're sick and you turn the note in more than 5 days after the day you were absent, all work you done that day you get a zero on.

 

Edit: Starfire, are most schools in Thailand that strict? I would have went to a different school. A school can't force you to dye your hair, that's ridiculous. Also, is the no shoes in class thing a custom there?

My school is pretty easygoing, its the usual, that is: no cell phones, MP3/4's, running in the hallways, gum...etc. Turns out over half the kids break these rules anyway. None of the rules are unreasonable. In return for respecting these rules, we get privileges like dieing our hair, wearing revealing clothing, etc. We're can wear virtually anything we want. My old school stopped offering bus transport after the sixth grade. Even after I moved, I walk to school. And I see no reason as to why you're so upset about bad weather notifications? Isn't it much easier to know bad weather's coming before you actually get on the bus and realize that its too late? And Ksenia's right. It's better not to judge people before you actually know whether they listen to the radio or not. My parents get up early and when they see bad weather's coming, the first thing they do is turn on the weather channel and the radio (this was before the sixth grade). If your parents or you sense bad weather, the logical thing to do is turn on the radio and/or the weather channel. See? I find this system very useful since many countries in fact don't have this kind of thing.

^ Oh, that reminds me. We aren't allowed to have gum in elementary school, but in middle/high school we are allowed as long as we aren't being obnoxious. (e.g. blowing bubbles, chewing like a cow, etc.) Something I love about school, because whenever I feel nervous about like a test or something, I tend to feel like I'm gonna puke, and mint gum is an excellent remedy for me.

We have rules in school but none are stupid.

 

Why did the school make rules if its just stupid?

 

The school makes rule for your safety and to discipline the students in school.

Uh.. I'm gonna list rules.

 

- No cell phones. - People bring them. As long as you're not texting in class, the teachers don't care.

- No gum. - No-one follows this. If teachers see you chewing, you are made to spit it into a clear bag, and then put the bag into the trash, so they know you've spat it out.

- You must wear uniform. - People can vary with it. White smart shirt, something black over the top of it. School tie. Black skirt[with tights/leggings]/black trousers. They don't mind if you wear black jeans, though.

- No food/drink outside of dining halls. - We go into the locker area[beside the dining hall] and eat. The headteacher doesn't mind, other teachers do.

- No football[soccer] team merch/colours. - People have bags with the football team's logo, but no clothing.

- No going into the town centre[a couple minutes walk] during lunch. - People do NOT follow this rule and they can't exactly do anything.

- No leaving school without a permit, aside from during lunch.

- If you are absent, you MUST call the school or bring a note in.

 

Etc, etc. They're not that stupid. :/

And if my school is closed, they either close it while we're there, and we're allowed to call home and leave. If we aren't at school yet, they have this thing. They text everyone's parents letting them know it'll be closed. This happened not long ago, with a gas leak.
