Quote of the Day: the Clayton County Schools Edition

"I can’t be looking cute in khakis."

Those are the words of Jonesboro High School sophomore Taylor Boyd as quoted in the Atlanta Journal Constitution article "Students: School dress policy ‘not cute’". Boyd also told the AJC that "Clayton County schools’ new uniform dress policy will make it a lot harder to get a date in school."

The words of Jonesboro High student epitomizes the pisspoor state of the Clayton County School System. The students think that school is a place to show off their clothes and get dates for the weekend, and the school administrators think that mandating school uniforms will help promote stronger academics and a safer campus.

Someone should tell them they're both wrong.
