They’re banning jeans in Western Australia?!

Western Australia have really done it this time… a ban is being put in place for 2007, banning jeans (or anything denim for that matter) in Western Australian secondary schools, because according to a spokesman for Western Australia state Education Minister, Ljiljanna Ravlich, “it’s just unacceptable at schools and we are trying to lift the standards.”

What’s next? Thongs (aka Flip Flops)?

    Ah! NO JEANS!? How will they survive!?

  • WA high school student..yeah sucks to be me says:

    thongs are already banned too..yes it is a huge mistake, i mean what are we going to wear in winter? dorky school trackpants? i don’t think so! there will be mass violations of the dress code because of a lack of comfortable, affordable and flattering alternative and the schools can’t punish everyone… i hope this law falls flat on it’s face, the education minister is just trying to compete with the private schools. if i wanted to go to one i would have, not a public school.
