Top Ten Worst School Rules


The Top Ten

1 Crap is considered a "swear word"

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

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

2 No crushes

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 saying kill or any other "violent words"

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

4 No bathroom breaks

Wow no hate no gum no facial hair no bathroom breaks no toys from home. Whoever created these rules are stupid. They are more retarded since day light savings existed. Facial hair is a natural part of the body. Thank god my school is not like that. But here's a stupid rule. A teacher in one of my classes does not allow me to wear a hat yet all the other teachers in the other classes hate are allowed. I'm in 8th grade. Also I need to ask before going to the bathroom. They are very nice teachers but don't give a damn if I have to go or not. Thank god I'm allowed facial hair.

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.

No rule is worse than one that denies us a basic human right. - Entranced98

I have bathroom breaks before a state test and before a field trips

5 No hoods

What is the motive of this one? - Scr3aM

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

How is wearing a hood or hat disrespectful

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 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

9 No doing your homework during your other classes if you finish work early
10 If your bus is late, your lateness is not excused

11 No hats allowed

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

No wonder so many kids are out sick
