Debate on Quirks of School Kids’ Fashions

Date Posted: 2000-09-22

PTAs at four junior high schools in Gushikawa City held a debate about the appearance of school children. Some parents expressed an opinion that students dyeing their hair different colors, schoolgirls wearing too large socks loosely hanging around their ankles, and other quirks of teenage fashion had a bad influence on the children’s education.

Japanese schools have traditionally rigid rules that fix how students should dress, cut their hair and appear in general. Some parents at the meeting pointed out that it is as traditional for students to rebel against such rules and flaunt them whenever possible.

Others argued that the rules are designed to foster acceptable social behavior and would benefit the children as they grow into adults. The meeting was also presented with surveys that as a rule showed school children claiming that the fashions helped them to discover their own personality. Surveys taking among the parents tended to support the school rules, although quite a few parents admitted to have rebelled against the rules themselves during their school days.
