Top Ten Weirdest Things Schools Have BannedKiteretsunu
The Top Ten
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. - Kiteretsunu
The Dictionary can't be banned! They are important for our English and of course, our SPEECH! - Adamshane1999
The dictionary is great for learning. That is so stupid that they would ban it.
"Teacher, what's a silhouette? "
"I'll get the dictionary."
"But this school doesn't have dictionaries."
"God dammit! " - CloudInvasion
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. - PositronWildhawk
I think this might actually be true! One of my teachers used red ink and I got a bad grade! :( - funnyuser
I get good grades in red ink and bad grades in blue
Well, why not blue ink?V 7 Comments
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! - SirSkeletorThe3rd
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. - Goatworlds
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.

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! - EpicJake
Father’s Day is in the summer. Kids are usually off school before Father’s Day - KingSlayer93316V 6 Comments
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. - Maddox121
Schools are retarded. Grounders and Red Rover I can understand. But tag? Come on! You're just running around and you have to touch someone else so they become it. (okay that sounds wrong) - SammySpore
After my school banned this, we started playing Grounders. After my school banned Grounders ( they're eyes are closed and they're on playground equipment? What if they fall! ) we started playing Red Rover. Then they banned that too so now we have nothing to do.
This actually happened to me. At this point, I think it's a law for King County, WA. Maybe even the state. - CyriV 15 Comments
I thought it was illegal to do this! - funnyuser
Wow. teachers must really want to kill us
Are there teachers who do this actually do this. If there are, they're monsters! Students don't have to starve. - 906389
At my primary school lunch wasnt banned but the teachers would check if u had eaten everything. if u hadnt they forced u tooV 14 Comments
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!?!?
Why the heck can't we wear regular clothes in schools!? I'm so tired of wearing the idiotic school uniform! Dammit! - PlatinumTheHitgirl
Yeah my uniform has a very uncomfortable jumper and trousers - which hardly fit me! (I work out by the way) - sryanbruen
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!
Schools with uniform supposedly want to make sure someone can be identified as a student if they have the uniform on. I think that's fair in all honesty. But some schools go their way to ban things that aren't really that inappropriate. And that's when things get ridiculous. - CloudInvasionV 35 Comments
It's not Darwin Watterson. It's actually Charles Darwin. - Kiteretsunu
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 - ethanmeinster
Charles Darwin, Not Darwin Watterson. - aarond09
Schools influenced by the FFRF (Freedom FROM Religion Foundation, a hyper-atheist, hyper-Darwinist group) ban Christian phrases yet ban Darwinist shirts?! Hypocrisy of hyper/militant atheists.V 4 Comments
The teachers are just afraid that the students will out-dance them! Chickens! - NerdyPweeps
Are the teachers afraid that kids will fall and hurt themselves or something? - funnyuser
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.
What is this, Step Up - RustyNailV 14 Comments
This is a truly bizarre thing to ban. But it happened. - PositronWildhawk
NO! Pokemon is awesome and should be allowed anything. - letdot52
What good would banning Pokemon socks do - Gamer4life
This is very strange, why would they ban these? What else is next? Pokémon shirts? pants? hats? shoes? UNDERWEAR?V 20 Comments
They're all out in the open now, because of "stuff"
Are you serious. Everyone would see your junk. - SammySpore
Why do schools ban those. Is it because they're trying to ruin students lives. I mean it's bad enough they ban dancing and regular clothes but bathroom stalls! What has society come to.
This is literally everyone watching you take a deuce. - AnnieCallieV 21 Comments
I actually understand that they banned this. It's because of nut allergies.
If it was the comics, I would blow up the school. - Maddox121
This is understandable. Maybe you should stop only caring about yourself because there are many people that are allergic to peanuts. - 3DG20
I can understand benefiting kids with nut allergies, but banning them altogether? What? - CloudInvasionV 9 Comments
Secondary School we have a school break, its not kiddy recess. Its just a break we have in school.
For older kids it's ok to not have recess, but I think students at least from kindergarten to 4th grade should have recess, possibly even 5th grade - _Annabel_
I don’t miss recess that much to be honest. - 3DG20
Phones? I guess I see why they are banned in some schools. They are distracting, and they make kids less social. Unless they are texting. And they barely even TALK while playing POKEMON GO. PLAY THE REAL GAME PEOPLE GO VERSION IS SO UGLY
I understand why it would be banned in some aspects if the students are abusing the privileges and playing on their phone instead of listening to the teacher, but what if an emergency happened? - 3DG20
You should see our form room at lunch! All anybody does past two o'clock when we can have our phones out is play games, and it's like living with a bunch of human phones! I don't have a phone, so I tried to create the same effect with my tablet, and the phone geeks ripped into me real bad. I think they should be banned at our school,and if you use your phone for a reason that's not welcome, you should either have it confiscated or get a period six. There! That's what I think of phones!
It makes sense because students would take advantage of it and use phones during class. It would be distracting, but one time we had a Grandparents' day performance at my school. I just was going to take ONE PICTURE with my 2 best friends after it since that would be a good opportunity because we didn't have class afterwards. My music teacher is very short-tempered and doesn't tolerate much. She kind of a sour person and is very negative and quite rude at times. She said anyone who wants to needs to help put away chairs and clean up. I just was taking one picture in the gym really quickly and she comes barreling over to me and at the top of her lungs says, "If I EVER see that phone again it's going STRAIGHT in my purse! " We ran off to take the picture elsewhere. I don't know why, but I've always had crabby music teachers. Sorry for the long story, I talk/type a lot. 😬☺️ - _Annabel_V 6 Comments
What are roller bags?
What is that? - AnnieCallie
They are like a cross between a suitcase and a backpack/bookbag. I can understand why these would be banned.
They can be hard to maneuver.
In a crowded school, the can be a nuisance
When things get chaotic, like during a class change etc. these can make it harder for students to get to their destination, and can get in the way of those with disabilities, in wheelchair, or on crutches etc. - emeraldfennekin
WHAT?! People’s birthdays are special things that should be celebrated!
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. - emeraldfennekin
If my school banned band shirts, I wouldn't have a wardrobe. - Plonderss
What if they need to tell their mom or dad maybe family member something, or what if two people are alone and one of them is having a medical emergency but they can't take out their phones then that person has to just stare at that person... think about it
A school banned Marilyn Manson shirts. I know worst thing ever. - AnnieCallieV 1 Comment
Well yeah, south park is for like 17 year olds. - SammySpore
Would you really want a 5th grader walking around with Eric Cartman on his shirt? - CloudInvasion
Actually, this makes sense.
I can understand because SP is for a mature audience and I guess the teachers don't want little kids to get the big idea..V 6 Comments
Gee, the principal or the school board must have been a real Scrooge or Grinch to ban something like this. - ModernSpongeBobSucks
That's so stupid
You’re a mean one, Mr Principal - Lunala
You’re a mean one, Mr. Grinch.V 1 Comment
What on earth did Air Jordans do to the principal?
A kid threw them at his principal and he suddenly became triggered. - AlphaQ
It's a way students make money for charities, fundraisers, and other good causes. - Connor360
It's a waste of time
Aw come on! whats wrong with having fun in the kitchen for school? - LAURENRL
Two words: the cuss? (Dialga king is my name even though I don't have a account)
This has no meaning whatsoever. ITS JUST A WORD LIKE - LAURENRL
Whatever, I'm going to say Meap instead as an excuse. - Maddox121
What even... - emeraldfennekinV 2 Comments
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. - SammySpore
That's just cruel... I guess some schools don't want friendship to be real..
Well me and Hunter won't be in the same school
Banning strong friendships. Lovely. - AnnieCallieV 2 Comments

A school in California banned clothing with the American flag on it because the hispanic kids felt "threatened" - ryanrimmel
What's next? They're going to ban the pledge or the national anthem? How stupid can schools get with banning things? - ModernSpongeBobSucks
"The flag of the country I live in is offensive, please ban it"
That's disrespectful to our country - AnnieCallieV 2 Comments
Tell me... WHO TF BANS BIRTHDAY PARTY INVITATIONS? - AnnieCallie
Lol, when it was FRIDAY and we were at school, it was nearly the end of the day. And we always have this thing called "Golden Time" and we go and do stuff like that. So yeah, the teacher said we were having Golden Time. And then some boys got paper and 2 pencils to do the Charlie Charlie challenge and it kept turning to yes, then the teacher asked why we were screaming and shouting that Charlie is real, the teacher said Charlie is real and he's alive. (There is a guy called Charlie in our class so...) And they said that it was a demon and the teacher told us to stop doing it over and over again. So... Charlie Charlie is banned from our class then. -
This is so understandable someone did it once and it scared almost everyone because he was blowing the pencil so it weird people think this is weird
Yeah, because it is a horror game, kids should NOT be scared over pen and paper - Maddox121
I agree it's bad luck to disturb the spirits in their restV 2 Comments
I am Jewish, so I don't believe in Jesus. But when something shocks me, I still say it. - 445956
I remember back in Grade 5, I literally got in trouble for saying that.
I say this and I'm Jewish - Ihateschool
I'm LIKE A JE$U$ CRI$I$! - AnnieCallieV 3 Comments
I live for books! In fact I couldn't survive if our school banned books!
Books are anti-literacy. Watch movies or be illiterate!
Books what the I don't get why books are band I love books
School is about books :-(V 5 Comments
Banning these can be helpful, but it also takes a useful tool from kids who actually are benefited by using one, like myself. - emeraldfennekin
I remember there was a PLAGUE of these things in my school...
My school banned them but before the ban everyone in my grade had one. - Lunala
My school banned them in 3rd grade and in August I will be a 5th grader. Aaah everyone and their mother had a fidget spinnerV 6 Comments
I don't have an MLP backpack though. - Chromium
I remembered that I watched the news and they said they the principal from the school putted an boy in detention JUST BECAUSE HE HAD AN MLP BACKPACK!, they even bullied the poor guy, many people in internet are on the boy's side, and the boy even made an Kickstarter campaing so he could bring his backpack again. - GumballWatterson
I have a Loungefly one…
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) - Kiteretsunu
This is one of my favorite foods - PatrickStar
"alarming red color" OH NO! THE COLOR RED!
Oh no.V 11 Comments
Okay, hold on. You're telling me that schools, which mind you, give tons of textbooks, papers and other supplies are not allowing students to carry a bag to put their supplies in? Umm okay... - emeraldfennekin
In the 6th grade, the school tried to institute uniformed backpacks. They weren't even backpacks, they were poorly made drawstring bags. By the way, we had to take all of our material home with us everyday.
My middle school wouldn't allow carrying backpacks around, and they want us to stuff backpacks full of stuff in really skinny lockers and bring only what we need. Very stupid. - NuMetalManiak
In 1st Grade We Used Plastic Bags Instead Of BackpacksV 7 Comments
When I was in 4th grade, whenever someone said "what the" they had to run a whole mile around the track. Stupid teachers
In my school someone said "what the" in class and the teacher told them to not say that. Another time most of the boys in the class said "deez nuts" all at the same time and the teacher didn't say anything. School makes no sense. - Imreallyboredrightnow
Two very common words in the English language and some adult in some school thinks that they're words of the heathens and blasphemers. Seriously? - NuMetalManiak
They can ban "What the f***" or "what the h*ll" but what the... is just dumb - Maddox121V 19 Comments
Schools banned French fries and bring exactly the same thing only to call them "Freedom Fries" - SirSkeletorThe3rd
Why would you ban French Fries? This list is so funny - JaysTop10List
From a high school in Ontario...
What on earth. this is getting worse by the second... - LAURENRL
Like the hair decoration or the old form of weapon?
Jojo Siwa (a crappy singer) would be mad if she found out about this - Lunala
In science some kid kept playing a distorted version of Sweatshirt, Dark horse and Heathens over and over and the teacher didn't care - Lunala
I play Marilyn Manson for the class sometimes. If they banned him it would be the worst day ever. - AnnieCallie
So I can't play clean versions of Melanie Martinez during class parties
Aren't schools normally supposed to teach music and famous composers? Stupid libs.V 6 Comments
When I was in the 4th grade I made a joke saying I smoke weed everyday. So someone took that seriously and told the teacher. So there was a drug inspection. Now that I'm almost a 7th grader I know how serious this is. - AnnieCallie
Yeah, drugs are so not funny.
This SHOULD be banned!
This is understandable! Drugs should also be banned. - 3DG20V 2 Comments
In grade 2 we had to draw a picture of war and we were not allowed to draw guns. You weren't even allowed to draw TANKS AND JETS. Other than that, the school would scold anybody who made the "gun" gesture with their hands. - Lunala
We were doing a World War 2 project in grade 6 and our teacher said to draw all things related to it. So the kid next to me started drawing guns and stuff, and he got detention.
This dude said that he was drawing a gun and the teacher raged. E_e
Once my friend made a gun gesture with his hands and got yelled at. - AnnieCallieV 7 Comments
So we what, go stinky all day especially for kids in marching band, gym, and athletics? - SirSkeletorThe3rd
That ban is incredibly stupid because if a lot of people that stink really bad are in the same room than it could reach toxic levels
Cologne and perfume I understand because some people have trouble breathing near them, but DEODORANT?!? This IS UNACCEPTABLE. - shawnmccaul22
That's why they made invisible spray people!V 4 Comments
My school won't even let you wear ANY type of clothing on your head! Hoods, hats, beanies, tinfoil, everything! All because they think it's disrespectful. Apparently my school is full of hillbillies who are still living in 1910 - SirSkeletorThe3rd
My school banned hats AND beanies. That is stupid. "There are gangs in the area" yeah right. - Pegasister12
The only gangs in our school area is the hillbillies who live in the trailer park next to school - SirSkeletorThe3rd
There's a no hats rule at my school but sometimes boys come to class wearing hats and they let them get away with it. So unfair - _Annabel_
Do hairbands count? because if so my school don't rage when I wear them. I wear them like every day. - LAURENRLV 7 Comments
In MY school, we are allowed to play any game we WANT during breaks. Even Grand Theft Auto!
I think they mean do NOT talk about video games - Th3Zm0nst3r
Video games are not school stuff
How CAN this be banned? There isn’t any video games in school anyways! - Untildawn8V 2 Comments
This is weird because sugar and energy are as important as vitamins and iron, there was a kid that was kicked out of his primary school because he had a chocolate bar, an apple, mini cheddar and some other food I don't remember, anyway this kid was underweight and his lunch is literally the most healthy lunch I've ever seen, even his lunch was healthier than school dinners - Harri666
My school doesn't mind what you eat. - Lunala
That's a sad story Harri666. - funnyuser
Oh my god in primary school they yelled at kids for eating “junk food”.
It was super duper traumatising. - Lunala
My school has done this. But kids in my school still wear tank top though. - EpicJake
In my school tank tops are only banned for boys - NicholasYellow
How are tank tops bad? - 906389
It is heritage not racism it stands for the men who fought for a unified confederacy! Yankees!
The confederate flag has evolved into a hate symbol and should be banned
It is not racism it stands for the men who fought for a separate and unified confederacy! Yankees!
Why would a school have a confederate flag anyway unless it was the school of the kkk or something. - Sunflowerswag
I don't see a problem with this ban. - emeraldfennekinV 1 Comment
