Administrators at Loveland High School in OH say yes and have banned students from wearing them. According to the big bad school boards, yoga pants fall under the too “distracting” so-you-can’t-wear-them rule and dozens of young ladies who customarily defied the ban are being sent to in-school suspension or forced to change. The students are rather astutely WTF about it.
“We’re trying to make a point that we all just want to go to school, we want to get our work done and be comfortable and just want to go home,” said senior Olivia Legg, who was among 17 students who spent Thursday serving in-school suspension.Dozens of other students said they were sent home or forced to change their clothes.School administrators think the soft, clingy pants, which are popular among yoga practitioners, are too revealing for class, but students disagree.
“I feel like if I wore jeans and a cute shirt, I’d be more distracting than what I’m wearing now,” Legg continues.
Superintendent John Marschhausen assures everyone, “We are committed to providing an appropriate educational environment while respecting the students’ freedom of expression” and has to get all bummer authority figure on us. The Man is currently reviewing dress codes and policies.
On a side note, this may make Loveland the comfiest, yet least fashionable high school in America.
What do you think? Are yoga pants too revealing for young folks?
