Small Problem

“A good speech should be like a woman’s skirt: Short enough to rouse interest, and long enough to cover the essentials.”- Delicate, aint it.. Im blessed with a few people/friends who speak like that (They dont wear mini skirts anyway…).

Whats the point.. ? Well, I hear that mini-skirts in Schools have become an issue of concern and are going to be added to the perpetual “Knock it off” list the Academic Superpowers have in their hand. Someday they are going to issue a Ban on parents. “Parents are a main reason for concentration loss. So students are adviced not to encourage parents having conversations with them.” (Probably this is there in some school already).

These are some issues that teachers can directly take it up with students, and solve it then and there. You see some girl who is wearing a dangerously Mini (micro, you may say) skirt, you could talk it over her and dictate some terms. The problem comes when teachers and prinicipals (and Vice Chancellor in some cases) try to be over-smart. And students on the other hand make too much fuss about it, and behave as if Oxygen was denied.

I wish they spend these times to think about techniques to educate. The results in the last Higher Secondary exams, reflected the standards of the teachers. Same question papers for all these years, and we had a lot of centums. One syllabus change, and students score all time low. Attend those injuries first. We will cover the thigh later.

One suggestion to teachers. Dont ask the students to study for exams. Teach them. That will do. And dont waste time framing laws against mini-skirts.

Dear students, if this ban comes, abide. Dont agitate. Unnecessary.

    I agree with what you said about students acting as if oxygen is denied to them. And yes, the system lacks so much in terms of teaching and education that the dress code should be a secondary issue (or even a non-issue). Teachers need to concentrate on teaching… but then again, can they, with so many bare legs being flaunted? Hehe… I do believe that everyone should be responsible for the way they dress, and if they dress provocatively, be ready to face the way people treat them… don’t expect to be dressed in a bikini and be treated like Mother Teresa just based on appearance!
    If everyone is ready to be responsible for their actions and face the consequences, then there is no need for authority figures to impose unnecessary dress codes and spend even a minute away from planning a better education strategy (which I’m sure they would be doing if it were not for the skirt issue!!)
