Al­len­town schools should en­force dress code

The Morning Call - - TOWN SQUARE - Den­nis Killeen West Rock­hill Town­ship

The Al­len­town School Board adopted a school dress code and the com­mu­nity ap­proved it. So, ac­cord­ing to The Morn­ing Call (Sept. 1), a stu­dent ig­nores the rule for three months, so does the mother, the school ad­min­is­tra­tor at the en­trance and the teacher.

What life les­son did these adults im­part on the stu­dent? Do you think a coach would let the stu­dent play with­out the proper uni­form or equip­ment? No, as the coach knows dis­ci­pline is a foun­da­tion for good per­for­mance.

What is pa­thetic are the teach­ers and ad­min­is­tra­tors who lack the moral courage to en­force the rules. They would rather change the rule than have to act as the adults and en­force the rule.

How do the other stu­dents who fol­low the rule feel when they see some­one will­fully vi­o­lat­ing the rule?
