Well, I'm Hungarian and our educational system was quiet similar to that of Japan - miss the good ol' times...

As an elementary school student we were not allowed to chew bubble gum in school, wear anykind of jewelry other than earrings, wear make-up...In summer children who were seen in undecent clothing ( like belly-showing tops ) were scolded in september...At school we had to have a change of shoes ( for the sake of clean corridors and classrooms )...Upper-classlers and the younger students had seperated playgrounds...Students who had bad grades were 'forced' ( it was highly recommended^^U ) to attend after-class tutoring by teachers...


The same is in Canada lol!!!
well, the school i attended during elementary school was EXACTLY the same haha

What my Japanese Language teacher had told the class, was that despite the rules, everyone always found small ways to show their individuality by putting a small pin on their bag, a style of ribbon in their hair (within school regulations), types of cellphone straps, pencils and pencil boards, the works.

The uniforms had to be worn a certain way, and your appearance was an overall representation of the school, as the uniforms of various schools are easily recognized. Once you were out of uniform, you still had to remain on semi-suitable behavior, least someone recognize you and report you to your school. It isn't a right to go to school, it's something that you are going to have to work hard to keep. Otherwise you will be kicked out.

And as someone else mentioned in the harshest but most truthful form, the school isn't there to coddle you. It's there so you can learn, and you had best follow the rules.

In my opinion that should be standard...

I'm living in a country where school uniforms aren't really common nowadays, I can see the results of it...
Kids having rich parents mocking their less fortunate schoolmates for not wearing designer/label clothing...
The lack of sense making differences between everyday, work and going-out clothing...
etc...

Even in my schooldays there were girls wearing jeans I could see their panties peeking out of while sitting - it's just a NO GO!!
Guys were all high on Nightwish/Korn/Slipknot T-Shirts and pointed fingers on 'real rockers' not wearing any such...
Nowadays it's all about Scene/Emo...

I'm not saying school kids shouldn't be allowed to show individualism but there is a limit to everything and school isn't a place to gather for fun...I myself have an own style I prefer and always find small ways to show it still keeping the rules of my workplace...

Appearance ( unfortunatly ) is everything in this world - it represents a lot of things, like :
where you come from
education
manners
etc...

On the other hand I have to say, too much controll is also bad...I myself would allow anykind of haircolor and most of the haircuts...A bit of make-up is also quiet harmless ( really just a BIT of it )...

In my opinion that should be common practice...
I don't know what is it so difficult on behaving oneself...

actually.. the mentioned rules are mostly true.. if i remember correctly.. haha~~

besides those.. there are also others such as..
- Students not allowed to smoke outside of school
- Students have to help clean the school at the end of the day
- Students are not allowed to color their hair
.. etc

actually it depends on whether the school is strict enough to enforce these rules.. frankly speaking.. i didn't really read thru all and obey them.. haha~~ {i started coloring my hair since i was 15..}

I agree it should be standard too. When I was in high school here in the U.S. (same time as you) the same thing happened. Designer brands were the worth of the student, you either were rich or you were nothing. And believe me, they rubbed it in like the spoiled children they were. And as you said too, they dressed up and called themselves rockers/emo/goth/whatever else, without knowing what those words meant, and gave a bad name to the real deal people. Which in turn also harbors misunderstanding in the overall community, labeling actual good kids as some horrible group of monsters.

Regarding the skimpy clothing, my opinion is thus:

It has no place in the schools, let alone on children/teens. It attracts the wrong kind of attention during a time in their lives where they are less likely to make good decisions.

I believe too, that they should be allowed to show individualism. And also that there is a limit. The school is not a fashion runway, and the rich kids aren't some royalty to rule the campus and treat the poor kids like serfs. If anything they need a lesson in humility, the younger the better.

And again, I agree with you, that the campus is not a social gathering place. It is nice to make friends, but as you said again, the school is like a workplace, it has rules to be followed. Same about the hair cut, hair color and make-up, as long as it isn't providing an overly-large distraction, it's fine.

For the behavior part of it, yeah I don't understand why people find it so hard to behave either. There is a time and place for everything. If they lack the patience to wait for the right time, they deserve what is coming to them.

Lol i remember my old school tried to get me to take off my makeup.
I just did not listen and they ended up giving up.

Alot of those rules are ridiculous. But how many people actually follow the out of school rules?

If these rules stay the same when I have a kid in high school, I will educate my child about Japanese high school rules so my child won't bitch and moan about the rules at their American high school.

Now we know why Japan is so successful. They're very disciplined. My CA teacher used to teach in Japan and I was in her Japanese Culture Class last semester and she told us some interesting stuff about Japan schools. Like she said they don't have homework but they have to go to school in the evening in order for the students to go into the top high school which was like their college in a way i guess. And they had to take a test in 9th grade based on everything they learned so they could find out if they can go to the top high school or if they're going to be something else like an engineer or something. and well... i really don't feel like typing everything she told us on here. lol

The rules are just wow... But I will manage. The rules are just... Wow. I knew they are strict. But not strict to the point of stupidity. How many people actually follow the rules word for word? or rule by rule? O_O;;

I don't think is bad at all.

In Puerto Rico females have to wear this ugly uniform.. the only difference between schools is the patterns and color. Good thing is that fenmales can design their uniforms and have them custom made.
Males have to wear a specific color jeans and shirt... according to the school colors. it sucks! lol

<<< love this emote lol
