Ever heard of Ugg-boots-turned-smuggling-assistant? For Pottstown
Middle School in Pennsylvania, the popular oh-so comfortable
boot has been banned for that very reason. Some crafty kids had been sneaking "contraband" items in and out of school
through their boots!
According to ABC News’ Amanda Carey, the ban covers all kinds of open top
boots, not specifically Uggs. But you
and I both know how ever-popular the furry boot has become over the years. After all, why actually put on shoes when you
can slide your toes into a pair of big slippers?
The students at the base of the problem have been hiding cell phones and other electronics in
their boots, which, as you chicas know, aren’t supposed to be actively used
during school hours.
However, it has been made clear that if the problem goes away, the school
with revoke the rule and the boots can have their comeback.
But, what do you think, babes? Does the
school have any right to put a ban on the students’ choice of clothing just
because of a few students who broke a rule? Or, is it justifiable? Blog it out!
