Top Ten Weirdest Things Schools Have Banned

The Top Ten

The Dictionary The Dictionary Product Image

It has been banned. At least in one school about which I read at the web. The school said they caught their students searching for vulgar and bad words in the dictionary. Pretty weird, but true.

This didn't get banned in my school, they did have dictionaries in my school

The Dictionary can't be banned! They are important for our English and of course, our SPEECH!

I think they banned these because kids were looking up inappropriate words in the dictionary

Father's Day Cards Father's Day Cards Product Image

What if some one doesn't have a dad? They'll be left out or upset

Lmfao but they don't ban mothers day cards what

Fathers Day is in summer!

My high school special ed teacher FORCED the class to make Father's Day cards

Red Ink (for Teachers) Red Ink (for Teachers) Product Image

The teachers in my school cover our papers in red or blue ink, LOL.

I read recently that the colour red can negatively affect test results. If only I knew this before I got red carpets for my room and a red blanket for my bed.

My primary school did this,its "bad luck "apparently or" its rude ". It's a PEN. What bad luck is there in ink?

In my culture, it's bad luck to sign your name with a red pen for some reason.

I think this might actually be true! One of my teachers used red ink and I got a bad grade! :(


Why do most of my schools that I went to say no touching people

They banned this at my old school because of "roughhousing" or something.

Nowadays playgrounds are inconsistent, they "trust" the news team (which always shows news about topics people think is important like ROBLOX, Minecraft, Princess Diana and Murder Mysteries) to petition the graffiti (which only happens when they need filler) and keep the big "F**K YOU" Text on the other side of the rock wall until the said news team comes, but ban tag because of germs, I have touched over 9000 (sorry for the DBZ joke) people in my lifetime, AND I'M ONLY 13, so what's the problem, so after they banned the TGRR (Tag, Grounders, Red Rover) kids just get bored and teens do not get a positive role model (unlike the teachers micro-brain thinks) but just the only thing to do other than sliding (which they are bored of) and talking (also bored of) is to take out their huge Sharpie, aka Paint Brush, and write another big "F**K YOU" on said spot. THE END.

They banned this because kids starting pushing kids a little too hard and they fell


Schools: Yay, starving children at schools was SUCH a good idea! Plus, money is better than people! Maybe we could make the children do labor and make our staff only get half the pay for TWICE the work!

Banning lunch would be enough to convince me that public schools want to mass murder innocent children. I bet the people running the schools worship Hitler and their ultimate goal is to recreate the holocaust.

@Dovewing3030-Unfortunately yes they do. It's called lunch shaming.

If kids don't have enough money, sometimes schools deny them food. Also, if those kids already got a lunch, sometimes the teacher makes them THROW IT AWAY. It's so sad cause a lot of kids may be poor and that's the only meal they will get for the day. Teachers obviously want them to either starve to death or suffer from severe malnutrition.

Darwin T-shirt Darwin T-shirt Product Image

Who thought that this was Darwin watterson before looking at the replies?

It's not Darwin Watterson. It's actually Charles Darwin.

Charles Darwin, Not Darwin Watterson.

One the other hand, some schools ban shirts with bible quotes on them, and saying anything that has to do with religion. If only we could get along. It's a free country


The teachers are just afraid that the students will out-dance them! Chickens!

Are the teachers afraid that kids will fall and hurt themselves or something?


Dancing isn't banned at my school. Heck, my best friend does the robot and the moonwalk all the time in wood shop. At least it's better then the whip nae nae or the dab.

Regular Clothes Regular Clothes Product Image

Seems like schools want us to wear fish costumes or pumpkin outfits at school.

Why the heck can't we wear regular clothes in schools!? I'm so tired of wearing the idiotic school uniform! Dammit!

Yeah my uniform has a very uncomfortable jumper and trousers - which hardly fit me! (I work out by the way)

I hate my school uniform, it feels like you are going to school-of-worst-dress-sense. Why can't we just wear a simple jeans and top? Our uniform for girls is, brown check shirt, brown divider skirt, two braids down the sides with ribbons, can you believe it?!? Ribbons! I don't understand what's the point of dress code in school. We are there to study, so teach us and don't interfere with anything else! I can understand banning crop tops, mini skirts and all that revealing crap, but normal clothes!?!? Like, is your brain dead or something!?!?

I understand when it comes to crop tops and blouses but regular clothes? What?! Having to wear school uniforms! Stupid! Wearing itchy and uncomfortable tops and shirts, and putting brains in your hair with ribbons! Ribbons! And I hate braids in MY hair. How stupid to ban regular clothes. Back in my childhood, I was glad my school didn't ban the clothes we wear now. Kids, go to Pettigrew! It's the nicest school!

Bathroom Stalls

Wow, privacy doesn't exist now in school bathrooms. How wonderful, two middle school kids looking at each other while they take dumps. Wonderful.

Why would they ban those? Are they trying to get kids to see each other's private parts?

They're all out in the open now, because of "stuff"

Are you serious. Everyone would see your junk.


That would suck then kids couldn't play after lunch and the first few classes

Secondary School we have a school break, its not kiddy recess. Its just a break we have in school.

That's stupid kids need playtime

This is just an elementary school thing.

The Contenders

Pokemon Socks Pokemon Socks Product Image

What the hell, you can't even see the socks if you wear pants of have short socks! Plus, it seems like schools want to force you into American culture like pRiDE iN oNLy aMeRIcA.

This is a truly bizarre thing to ban. But it happened.

What good would banning Pokemon socks do

NO! Pokemon is awesome and should be allowed anything.

Best Friends

This is the best thing about school! What cruel and undesirable school would ban this?

They banned it because other students might feel bad. The way people have to not offend anybody and be nice all the time is just dumb. You can hardly say or do anything now without offending some prick.

That's just cruel... I guess some schools don't want friendship to be real..

Banning strong friendships. Lovely.

Chairs Chairs Product Image

I gotta say, this is the stupidest ban I've ever heard in my life. My high school has fully wooden floors with tile that cracks every time someone steps on them, so this would be uncomfortable to sit on the floor. Also, my school was built in 1898 so it's very old. Who is with me on my opinion?!

Your school probably isn't up to earthquake code if the floor cracks like that! Get out of there! - MinecraftDoge

That would be the worst it would be uncomfortable to sit on the floor

OK this list is getting pretty weird now...

What do I sit on then? The desk? The floor?

Flaming Hot Cheetos Flaming Hot Cheetos Product Image

Teenagers these days are consuming alarming rates of spicy foods, which can harm your digestive system. Regularly, people are being sent to the hospital for these kinds of problems. Sure, some hot food is good, but if that's the only thing you eat, well that's a problem.

My little cousin says that her school sells them in the cafeteria

Cheetos often get a bad rap, but Flaming Hot Cheetos are apparently the biggest culprit. With their dangerous heat and alarming red color, no school cafeteria is safe. (Source: The Huffington Post)

This is one of my favorite foods

Anything Involving Birthdays Anything Involving Birthdays Product Image

This would suck if they did then you may not know when it's your friends birthday

This goes for all other holiday related things, but some schools have people who are Jehovah's witnesses, which is a religion where they don't celebrate holidays. They do other stuff, to, but that's not very important for this matter. I go to school with a girl who's a Jehovah's witness, and she's really nice.

Good thing my birthday's in August.

I feel feel bad for you guys

Pokemon Cards Pokemon Cards Product Image

In elementary school, Pokemon was very big and everybody brought Pokemon cards to school. Even the popular kids! Anyways the principal banned them. Then Beyblade was popular and then it got banned!

They were banned at MY school because someone dropped one and someone else picked it up. Then the teacher gave us a lecture about stealing other people's things and talked to the principle. After that we snuck them in and we never got caught.

Everybody in my first grade were bringing Pokemon cards until the teachers banned them, along with Silly Bands. WE all tried to sneak them into class and trade while doing assignments.

At my old school they banned them since they caused fights but at my new school kids talk about them a lot and the teachers have never really brought them up

Band Shirts Band Shirts Product Image

Even if the songs have bad words, there's a kid in English who wears a deadpool shirt all the time, which is R, and he doesn't get in trouble! Yes, I know some band shirt have gore and stuff on it but not every band!

If my school banned band shirts, I wouldn't have a wardrobe.

I can understand if its for some of the more obscure metal bands like the ones I listen to, like Cannibal Corpse etc because of the graphic nature of their merchandise, but for them to ban band shirts outright is just too much.

A school banned Marilyn Manson shirts. I know worst thing ever.

Christmas Christmas Product Image

Gee, the principal or the school board must have been a real Scrooge or Grinch to ban something like this.

Christmas is the best time of the year! Why would anyone bank Christmas? That's weird!

Probably due to different religions and things, because not everyone celebrates Christmas...

Your not in school for Christmas.

The school that had banned Christmas had probably Ebeneezer Scrooge or The Grinch as the Principal. Or the Principal might be even worser than the guys I mentioned!

Art Art Product Image

I'm that guy that said yay no art but I have to suffer and I'm glad It's summer


that's sad

Yay I hate art

Bake Sales

How you know if someone didn't poison your food or let a dog lick their spoon lol

It's a way students make money for charities, fundraisers, and other good causes.

There jealous that people would rather give money to a cancer research instead of a fundraiser for the shcool to waste on break room coffee and chalk

What's wrong with these? They're for charity.

The Word "Meep"

This has no meaning whatsoever. ITS JUST A WORD LIKE

I automatically thought of meep from phineas and ferb

Two words: the cuss? (Dialga king is my name even though I don't have a account)

Whatever, I'm going to say Meap instead as an excuse.

South Park T-Shirts South Park T-Shirts Product Image

South Park is a good show, but I'm surprised it's ran for how long it has since it's very inappropriate. Makes Family Guy look like a baby show.

Well yeah, south park is for like 17 year olds.

Generally, you would have to be 15 or 16 to watch that show because of it's inappropriate content. So you can't walk around wearing that if you're in elementary or middle school.

Actually, this makes sense.

American Flag American Flag Product Image

A school in California banned clothing with the American flag on it because the hispanic kids felt "threatened"

What's next? They're going to ban the pledge or the national anthem? How stupid can schools get with banning things?

Liberal: You see, the flag that represents the land of the free is a symbol of white supremacy. Because that makes sense.

They chose to ban the American flag because it would offend minorities? How is it offensive to them? How?

The Words "Mom" and "Dad"


This rule is stupid

This is getting weirder by the minute...

I think it's because girls are calling grown men daddy

Air Jordans Air Jordans Product Image

What on earth did Air Jordans do to the principal?

A kid threw them at his principal and he suddenly became triggered. - AlphaQ
