Some of the rules set fourth by the government in the Rio Rancho Public Schools district are irrelevant to the needs of the students. These rules are not helping to provide the proper quality of education, but instead are interrupting classrooms to deal with this so-called problem. The students these days do not need rules such as: dress code, identification cards, and truancy (not attending school). We are old to understand the consequences of our actions, and we are willing to accept them. Most of the rules in our school are somewhat logical, however, we don’t need rules that are going to disrupt our learning. The reason I say this is because when we go to school everyday, all we worry about is if we have our ID, or if we’re in dress code or not. The teachers spend more time enforcing those rules, than they do actually teaching. Students these days already have the pressure of graduating, getting a job, and for most of us, playing a sport. Having to worry about other useless stuff is completely ludicrous. The government as well as the faculty themselves, are ruining the students of tomorrow with these rules of insanity.

Dress code was a rule brought to RRPS when I was in third grade, and ever since then, the students have been miserable. In no way can wearing diverse clothes influence the learning style of any student. The teachers used to tell us that it was because of a couple students that ruined it for everybody, but all of those kids were in high school already. The administration told us that we have dress code to prevent gang violence in the schools. What gang violence is there in elementary schools? Nobody under the age of ten even knows what a gang is. All the students care about now days, is if they have the right shirt on, or if it’s the right color. The adults of today are always preaching to be your own person. They say to be an individual. They say all these things, and then decide to pass a bill as irrational as dress code; nobody seems to see...
