'Straight Jeans And Fitted' Banned From Schools...
Do children live what they learn?
Tight pants, short skirts and bleaching are the reasons some of the nation’s children are being barred from entering some schools across the island.
Singer and prolific writer Tanya Stephens says school was meant for educating and when adults hurriedly reject our children who are plagued with obvious self-esteem issues, they are the ones who fail and not the children.
However, veteran entertainer Tony Rebel is of a different view. Rebel believes that while the children needs to be educated, the school’s rules and regulations should be upheld by parents and students.
September 3, the beginning of a new school year saw several children across the island banned from entering classes after they were cited as being in breach of school conduct.
Numerous members of the entertainment fraternity including deejays, singers, dancers and dancehall fanatics have openly endorsed certain fashions such as tight pants for men and bleaching is a public phenomenon though not widely accepted.
