I get on the bus daily and come to note the various attire combinations of German school kids. I'm the older guy, and a bit of a conservative.....so I kinda shake my head over what some of the kids wear. I'd probably use the words.....inappropriate, baggy, lounge-wear, slutty, etc.
I noticed in regional news this morning....there's this school in the southern quarter of Germany which has decided enough is enough....they want a dress code.
The director has said in strong words....clothing has something do with attitude. I must agree with this logic.
What they've noticed locally is that kids are now showing up in school and wearing sweat-pants.....jogging-pants. Apparently, they've even had kids who were up at apprentice age....showing up for interviews....in sweat-pants.
So they've sent a letter out and want a parents-school conference meeting in December....and if enough parents support this....a ban will start up. More support across sections of Germany? Well....most will say they don't have a problem....at least not yet.
Bottom line? Germans tend to be rule-makers and enforce to the ninth-degree. I suspect this will start a new trend with schools across the country.
