Top Ten Worst School Rules


The Top Ten

1 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

But we can’t help it! - 3DG20

2 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 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

3 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.

4 No saying kill or any other "violent words"

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

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

5 No hoods

How is wearing a hood or hat disrespectful

What is the motive of this one? - Scr3aM

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

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

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

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

The Newcomers

? Only healthy food is allowed

We are all exposed to junk food all the time. It's unavoidable. DEAL WITH IT! >:(

The Contenders

11 No phones even at break and lunch

My high school wont let me do this - ihatetrump

12 No hats allowed
13 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

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

No wonder so many kids are out sick

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
