Butt Seriously: Principal Requests Girls to Wear More Clothes

15 Nov

The over sexualization of the nation is apparent to anyone who has eyes and ears. Raising a child in this era of provocative clothing choices is not easy. It is refreshing to see a public school employee actually promote decency with his students.

Minnetonka principal, David Adney, sent an email to the parents of girls at his school requesting them to talk to their daughters about their clothing choices. He points out the trendy yoga pants and short tops are “highly distracting for other students.”

The principal’s letter was greeted by parents with approval and support. One parent, Traci Colwell told her daughter, “I said, ‘See, I’m not the only one to feel this way. It’s gotten way out of control the way kids dress.” Her daughter wears them to school but in a more conservative manner than some of her classmates.

Adney notes “about a half-dozen complaints from female staff, school volunteers and female students concerned about girls wearing spandex and other tight leggings”  He has simple suggestion for everyone wanting to wear the clothing in question,  “Cover your butts up — I’m just going to say it straight up. We’re seeing too much.”

Clothing issues are not limited to just girls though. From the article, “Adney said, following last spring’s trend of boys wearing muscle shirts that were too revealing. Before that, it was boys wearing sagging pants.”

Schools main focus is education above all else. Mr. Adney is doing what he can to limit the distractions and keep the minds of children focused on learning.
