Top Ten Worst School Rules


The Top Ten

1 Crap is considered a "swear word"

Schools also considered "stupid", "hell", and "d***" as swear words.

Well I didn't feel as bad after I read about a school who banned the use of the word Shrek. - Scr3aM

2 No crushes

Who the hell made this list? a bunch of 5th graders?

But we can’t help it! - 3DG20

They may not have some of these at your school, but they sure do at mine. Anyways, this makes no sense at all. How in the heck can they control how you feel about someone? that's why this makes no absolute sense, but yet, they made it a rule. - Scr3aM

How is this even a rule? It's not as if we have an 'off' button for our hormones for when we're in school. - Entranced98

3 No bathroom breaks

No rule can be worse than this, during passing periods the bathrooms are so crowded with jerks that I can't even use them, that's why I always ask during class, and when it comes to limited pass or straight up no bathroom, that's a BIG problem! my 6th period teacher forbids us to use the bathroom during class, period, that's why I hate him - BlueBobYT

Exactly would you rather me pee in your classroom - BreakFastBeast2005

If you're a middle school or a high school female then this rule is just cruel. Girls having their periods NEED the bathroom more often. Girls may get a bad rash or infection from sitting in a bloody pad for too long, it gets smelly, and sometimes when periods are at their heaviest times, if they don't change, they will leak and blood will get everywhere. Gross and unhygienic.

4 No saying kill or any other "violent words"

Some examples
gun as in imaginary gun in my school
"shut up" seriously can't classmates shut their mouths for once

What if you’re just talking about a game you like with your friend? - 3DG20

Jeez, how paranoid can you people get!? - Scr3aM

5 No hoods

This is the stupidest dumbest why just why... - BreakFastBeast2005

My school says it's a safety hazard because it covers your face! but does it though? does it really teachers?

How is wearing a hood or hat disrespectful

I honestly don't understand the point of this rule.

6 No playing tag

Yes, this is still happening. - Scr3aM

7 No bringing toys from home

Principal : "here at blah blah blah we want our students to be productive. Oh and well you're at it, no toys from home! " - Scr3aM

8 No doing your homework during your other classes if you finish work early

Teachers be like 'I want you all to be more productive'

9 If your bus is late, your lateness is not excused

A week after one of my teachers said he wouldn’t get us in trouble for being late if it was a legitimate reason, my bus was almost an hour late and by the time I got there, I was supposed to be in the same class, but then when I got there, that same teacher lectured me, even after I told him what happened. - 3DG20

10 No gum

To be honest, I don't care about this rule. Plus, I hate it when people stick gum under the seats or wherever, so I kind of actually like this rule. - ModernSpongeBobSucks

Yes, I have to agree that it's annoying when I find chewed up pieces of gum under lunch tables and seats - Scr3aM

How does it affect them if we're chewing on a flavored piece of rubber? - Scr3aM

The Newcomers

? No swearing
? No sunglasses

The Contenders

11 No hats allowed
12 No phones even at break and lunch

My high school wont let me do this - ihatetrump

13 No jackets allowed, even if the building is super cold

No wonder so many kids are out sick

14 No tank tops

I think as long as it covers your bra and it's not too low cut, then that should be fine.

Why, I don't get it! - Scr3aM

15 No playing in mud

You want school to be fun... - Scr3aM

16 Hugging is considered sexual harassment

Don't really have that at my school. I sometimes see kids hugging my math teacher, does he yell at them? No.

I do it sometimes too, and does he yell at me? Nope - Stazemar000

What if it’s just a friend hug? - 3DG20

17 The only hats or beanies allowed are ones with the school logo
18 Lunch is only 40 minutes long

Mine is 15 min long

Mine is 45 minutes. - 3DG20

Mine's less than 40._. - BlueBobYT

Mine is 30. - Ilovestephanie

19 Elementary school gets out at 3:15 PM

My elementary school gets out at 2:45

My elementary school gets out at 3, and my current school gets out at 2:45. - 3DG20

My elementary school gets out at 3:45 PM - BlueBobYT
