    When I was in JR High they made this stupid rule that boys and girls who were 'going' with one another couldn't hold hands while on school grounds. :roll: I guess they thought holding hands was some type of major sin that would lead to babies :roll:

        By that reasoning, nothing would be allowed in school because everything can be dangerous in the right, or wrong, hands.

              Of course, the Public Display of Affection rule...one of my friends and his girlfriend like, kissed or something, and the science teacher was like "I'LL MAKE SURE YOU GUYS DON'T COME WITHIN 15 FEET OF EACH OTHER FOR THE REST OF THE YEAR!"

              that science teacher is probably single....

                Back in 7th-8th grade, if you didn't do your homework, in my 7th grade year, they'd make you stay for an hour! And then in 8th grade, if you didn't do your homework, you'd have to come early! I hate coming early!

                  My grade school (PreK-8th), wouldn't let the middle school girls bring teenager magazines to school because it had articles pertaining to sex, STDs, how do ask a boy out and kissing. I understand that 5th grade and younger might not be old enough to be reading that stuff, but 6th-8th graders are older and mature enough to understand. What did the administration expect us to do, read Highlights magazine until we were 14?

                  Never underestimate your own abilities.

                      We are a catholic school. Our former mascot was a dragon, and we had paintings of dragons in our gym and caff. Our school team for the past million years was called the Pf flames. Now, last year the teachers thought of it as satanic, and it is no more. No more mascot. No more paintings in the gym and caff, no more flames. GAY.

                        I don't remember many harsh rules except for Simpsons Nuclear Family shirts being banned when I was in grade three. I remember getting stuck with odd classes I couldn't get out of in high school too, like for some reason they put me and a bunch of other people in a CAD (computer aided design) class. It was a class where you made blueprints for stuff and seemed to be operating at a college level. Also, you never made the stuff you made the blueprints for, no just the blue prints. I never gave any clues that I had any ambitions to be an architect so I have no idea how I wound up in it.

                            Looking back school was just one big scheme where students were sent to be programmed how to be little lemmings and follow the rules. When I would not follow these rules of course I'd get called out and stuff like this even extended all the way into college. I can totally understand why parents would want to home school their kids and in my opinion college is one big scheme as well. With the proper nurturing and education you can become successful in other ways that don't require a college diploma. My dad was a custodian for many years and over the years saved enough to buy a house, car, furniture, etc. and still had money left over because he knew how to manage money. Money management is the most important thing and having a proper upbringing without rules that are used to suppress your creativity and drive. School can really beat you down with all the useless crap that is thrown at you. I know this concept is extreme for many people but going to college and following the rules isn't the fail-proof plan of being successful as you are led to believe by the media or stories passed down from others. Just don't go to prison and you'll be fine in your life.

                              That's usually the kind of people who make rules like that.

                                In our cafeterias in elementary school, we had a kind of score board at the end of each table. We started with a 5, then if the kids talked it would go down to a 4 and eventually a 0. If we got a 3 or lower, we got no recess.


                                My elementary school had something similar in the form of a traffic light for noise ordnance. At the beginning of every lunch period, the light would be green. If the kids got a little too loud, the light would turn yellow and make a fast beeping sound. This would be an indicator for the children to quiet down. If they didn't, the light turned red and spat a loud buzz, to which the kids had to be dead silent until the light turned green again.

                                where did you go to school my school had the same thing.

                                      This thread was an interesting bump. As a teacher, I know why a lot of these rules are enacted. This past year I had to ask one of my students to take off a breast cancer bracelet because they all say "I Love Boobies." I don't know why parents buy these for their kids. I don't like the rules oftentimes, but I understand why they exist. School should be a professional environment, like a place of business. I teach art, but I try to come in looking nice every day, I want my students to do the same. Granted, their parents also come to meetings in PJs and all kinds of stuff so it's obvious where it comes from...

                                      Anyway, there weren't too many rules that affected me. Mostly to do with not having your underwear/goods hang out, and they banned digital pets and beanie babies at one point. No big deal.

                                      The worst was probably the restriction on non-prescription medication. I often got headaches and my Dad packed children's Tylenol for when I needed it and I asked my Kindergarten teacher to help me pop them out of the package and a whole write-up got sent home. It was the only time I saw my Mom tear something from school up and throw it out.

                                        I could see a kid getting expelled over something like that today. I had really bad allergies as a kid. When I was in private school in the 5th grade my teacher saw some cold tablets my mom gave me to take after lunch. They were the ones that some companies offer in the first aid kit to employees. Well my teacher saw them and took them from me. She told me I needed a note from my mom. Well the next day I brought a note and she advised me that the ASSistant principal made her throw them out and she told me I couldn't have them period. After that I always made sure no one saw me with any medication I brought to school. The rule at most school is you have to have a note and the medication has to be delivered to the nurse in person by the parent.

                                        Speaking of medication I can think of several cases where some pain medication or some Pepto Bismol might have kept me from going home early from school. As long as the parents signed something at the beginning of the school year authorizing it I see no reason why a school nurse can't give these things. I mean they could call the parent and even ask them, but no they still see too much liability. Its even a law here in Texas. I'm sure some naturalist, anti vaccine nutjobs lobbied for it.

                                          The dumbest rules our school came up with were based around "Satanism". I went to school in Georgia, which is basically part of the buckle of the Bible belt. When Magic: The Gathering and Pokemon cards caught on, the principal caught wind of it and went on somewhat of a witch hunt. We were told "Satanist activities" would not be tolerated and those caught with the cards would lose them and serve a few days in I.S.S. (in-school suspension).

                                          To further paint a picture of what a lunatic this guy was, one day he saw me wearing a Darth Maul shirt and made me call home and tell them to bring me another shirt. My parents were not pleased with him.
