"A school district near Dallas instituted restrictive new dress codes, barring students from wearing hoodies, dresses or clothing with "stripes, checks, lettering, wording, or other designs."

The Forney Independent School District's new "Back for the Future" attire guidelines appear to be a play on the hit 1985 science fiction comedy "Back to the Future," when a teen played by Michael J. Fox travels in time to end up in the same school with his parents in 1955.

A video posted on the district's website on Wednesday features a child explaining how dress codes are no different than rules faced by adults who are forced to wear specific clothes to work.

Superintendent Justin Terry also appeared in the video to reiterate how school children should be trained in these "future workforce skills that we want to impart on our kids."

"So we are so exited to reset this bar with you, with our parents, with our community members, with all of our business partners, as we work together to take our schools, our classrooms back for the future of our kids," he said.

Yeah...I don't know of any work place that bans stripes or checks. This is asinine at best. I guess all they can wear is solid co!it's since they also state designs/letters/ pictures. That is worse than most uniforms at private schools.

Banned items:

Visible stripes, checks, lettering, wording, or other designs.
Sleeveless.
Thermal type shirts. T-shirts. Zippered shirts or blouses.
Hooded sweatshirts or outerwear.
Hats, caps, bandanas, or other non-religious head coverings worn inside the school building.
Leather, suede, vinyl, corduroy, and denim materials (not including outerwear).
Baggy-style legged slacks.
Holes in clothing.
Cargo or Carpenter style pants.
Soccer or boxer style shorts, wind shorts/pants, athletic shorts/pants, sweat shorts/pants, spandex (except in PE/Athletics, Cheer, or Drill classes only).
Dresses.
Overall pants, overall shorts, overall jumpers, and coveralls.
Leather, suede, vinyl, corduroy, and denim materials; brads or studs.
The district will also bar students' clothes that are too tight or too baggy: "Clothing can be no more than one size larger than the student’s measurements; nor may the garment be too tight."

No Jeans or athletic wear. I can’t figure out what they can wear. Looks like religion was heavily involved in this list.

How are they’re going to do that when dresses are banned?
I mean, isn’t that what Amish women wear and what 1950s girls wore? What do they mean by “dresses”? Because that seems a little vague.

Oops, I was thinking more about the males, lol. I don't know what they're talking about with dresses, but it probably has something to do with girls not showing off any lady parts or something equally as ridiculous 👀

Just curious... what does your faith permit you to wear? Whatever you wish, or are there rules?

I hardly think that they’ll come up with a dress code and not include females in it… if anything, I’d surprised if women weren’t the main focus of the dress code.
