That's ridiculous.  I remember in my HS the sports team members and cheerleaders would always wear their uniforms on game days, or the day before if it was a weekend game.

Field Hockey game days were the best.

I'm confused by the story -- exactly what might a "cheerleader" look like?
 
2013-08-27 12:47:14 AM
FTFA: In past years, administrators turned a blind eye during football season to the cheerleaders' sleeveless uniforms with short skirts.

Heh, Sure they did. More likely they found it harder to hide that they couldn't

Countryside principal Gary Schlereth said he is working with the cheerleading team to find a compromise. Before the school year started, his administration asked the girls to order special jackets to cover their arms.

So, the conclusion was: the cheerleaders were at fault, and not the idiotic dress code and the creep of increasingly Nanny State intervention to preserve the "children"?

Yup. Brilliant administratin' there, Lou...

 "And why can they wear it in front of thousands of people at a football field if they can't wear it on game day at school?"

Only honey, they are wearing it in front of millions of pervs once the videos get uploaded.
But dont worry, no one looks at your young daughter in her tiny skirt and tight sweater.

I agree. They should remove them immediately.

No cheerleader uniforms?  That's farked up man.  We've gone over the edge.

I think the objection was that every other girl in the school is required to wear 'modest' clothing, but the oh so farking precious cheerleaders can wear teeny skirts to school.

Now that I think about it, I think the cheerleaders at my school also violated the dress code.  Now I feel violated!

I wish the cheerleaders would violate me some more.

that argument is logical and hence cannot be applied.  It is similar to not being able to wear baseball caps in school even though the baseball team does.  Should swimmers be allowed to wear their swimsuits around school because they wear them at competitions?
 
2013-08-27 06:09:58 AM
If they are going to enforce a dress code, it should be for everyone, including teachers and administrators.

Can you also wear your school approved swimsuit to normal class? No? Then why should you wear a cheerleader uniform to class?

2013-08-27 06:15:08 AM
I remember this being brought up at my high school every year by students who got in trouble for violating the dress code, particularly girls who were told their skirts were too short.  It did seem kinda silly to me that the school administration apparently thought kids dressing sexy was bad, unless they had the school's name prominently emblazoned on their not-yet-legal chests.

^this. Remember that really pisses off nerdy girl who kept losing student government elections? She's what happened.

Came here to say this.  My kids were all on the swim team.  The girls wear one pieces but the boys wear those tiny speedos.  In either case, they're ridiculously skin tight since they're all about about 2 sizes too small in order to reduce drag.

If it were about reducing drag and not about trying to sell kids as sexy, then they would be put in unflattering, yet very efficient at reducing drag wetsuits... full body, with gloves.

In my school the cheerleaders just wore warm up pants under their skirts on game days. The cheerleaders got to do their teenage arousal thing and administrators got to feel as though they were universally applying rules. Problem solved.
 
2013-08-27 06:26:31 AM
Forget the cheerleaders, I think the girls swim team should be able to were their "uniforms" in class on days that they have swim meets.

To drum up excitement for The Big Game! Cheerleaders are nothing but eye candy to give the bored dads in the crowd something to ogle while pretending to give a shiat about the game.
 
2013-08-27 06:32:56 AM
If I recall correctly, because it's been quite a long time, where I went to high school they had some ridiculous clauses in the dress code that allowed teachers and administrators to tell a student to not wear something again and/or turn it inside out for the rest of the day...  as far as cheerleaders went, I'm pretty sure they wore the same style warm-up pants like basketball players do, and since it was in Wisconsin,their tops had sleeves.

This does make sense, regardless of how you feel about the actual, dress code, there is a point that it should apply to all students the same.
Those comparing this to the Taliban are boring me, being suspended or made to wear something w/sleeves or that goes at least to the knees isn't the same as being stoned to death.  My god, the horror.

The changes to the dress code I mentioned were unannounced before the first day of class, they only applied to girls, and they cited about a hundred students.

As for the Taliban reference, I take it you haven't lived in suburban/rural Pennsylvania.

In a perfect world, every father would think his daughter is beautiful. David Fraser agrees. "Yeah, but she's actually beautiful," he says of his own daughter, 15-year-old Jeana. "I mean, she looks like a cheerleader."

Hmmmm... Ok there, Creepy Dad...
