Cheerleading Attire At School

Believe it or not, this is happening in true blue California:
High school cheerleaders have been told to wear sweat pants under too-short miniskirts because a Northern California principal says the uniforms are too risque.

San Jose Piedmont High School principal Traci Williams says the miniskirts are OK for games, but not during school.
The dress code is the dress code. Wrestlers don’t wear their singlets to class, and swimmers don’t wear their suits to class—because they don’t comport with dress code. Why should cheerleaders get a pass?

The cheerleaders really ought have skirts that go down the knees. They look like pleated streetwalkers, esp. if go-go boots are part of the combination, seriouslyy. They shouldn't be allowing such awful "uniforms" in the first place.

I find it interesting (not hypocritical, but interesting) that the skirts are considered "not okay" at school, but "okay" at a school sponsored event.

Like a swimsuit or a wrestling singlet, they're the "uniform" for participants at that event.

Danceline! OMG!

Pat, I don't understand your comment.

Pat Austin said...

Dancelline uniforms are pretty bare, too.

Darren said...

Oh, we don't have those--didn't know that term.

I thought most cheerleaders also had warmup suits similar to the ones worn by swimmers and other athletes. Why not wear those?
