    I support these girls' demands to wear yoga pants and shorter skirts.

    Video of what high school girls might look like at the link.

    I despise dress codes, but if your school is in Hawaii and has no air conditioning, you might have slightly more pressing concerns.

    As someone who's going to Hawaii next month
    I highly approve of their fight for shorter skirts.

    I can't get over the no air conditioning thing. Why is there no air conditioning at a school in Hawaii in fucking August?

    I'm all for school uniforms.

    Keeps the gang bangers in check.

    School is not the place for clothing "expression" but to learn.

    You're not taking into account the fact the classrooms are rooms full of 16-32 people (15-30 kids and 1 or 2 adults). That's a lot carbon dioxide.

    I was actually wondering what they were doing in school this early, but apparently summer vacation in Hawaii starts just after Memorial Day and ends in early August.

    Also:
    That must be a misprint. Unless these girls have orangutang arms, that amounts to a miniskirt.

    That's what it was when I was in high school. It started around, literally, the very beginning of August. My first year, school started August 1.

    No, it's not. That's why it's fantastic.

    In protest they should wear only G strings and pasties. That'll learn them.

    No one learns anything in high school. It's made to hammer any free thinking and expression out of your head. Standardized tests have ruined any sort of "learning" in schools.

    "And this, class, is a perfect example of exaggeration. Who can spell that for me?"

    No it doesn't. All school uniforms do is encourage conformity and take the kids' minds further from their work by making them more uncomfortable.

    Oh, and for the ac thing-I don't know this school in particular, but the majority of schools in Hawaii are open campus designs where every room opens to the outside and has windows, so ac is difficult to have over a large campus

    I had to take it upon myself to research this.

    As near as I could tell,, these would be legal:

    This one might be too short. Closer study is warranted.
