I think the new law prohibiting " Baggy Pants" is a good idea, however I don't believe it should be a law. This new law is suppose to prohibit students from exposing body parts or underwear.
Governor. Bill Haslam believes baggy pants cause a classroom distraction. I agree it is a distraction for some, but not all. I think there are other more important distractions that should be addressed instead of focusing on baggy pants. I think the bullying problem should be addressed before this topic.
As far as punishment goes, will it be the child's fault or parents? What if the parent just cannot afford proper pants. And who will make sure this law is followed through?
Yes, I understand showing body parts is an issue. It was a problem when I was in school, but we should not be so concerned about how people dress. I don't think it is worth making a law for. Why not invest in school uniforms? This way children don't have to worry about any "so called distractions" and parents don't have to worry about buying new school clothes. A belt is an easy fix, but a school uniform could go a long way.
