strange school rules around the world
EVERY school has its own set of rules to keep students disciplined . The rules change from one school to another. Some schools are much stricter than others. There are also some rules that look strange or funny to us. Here are some funny school rules:
Tough Japanese rules
Most schools demand that students wear uniforms, such as sports suits or skirts. But many Japanese schools even regulate the colour of underwear ! They also demand that girls' white socks be folded in a certain way and boys' heads be shaved .
Other Japanese schools tell students that they may not date, go to movies, leave home after sunset or play video games without permission from the school.
Different shoes in US
For safety at some US schools, students must have a pair of indoor shoes to change into at school every day. This makes sure students won't fall over on the slippery floors and keeps the schools clean.
Gum chewing is not allowed in many US school buildings, as it is difficult to clean up. And if students chew gum in class, they may not focus on their study.
No strange hair in UK
Strange hairstyles are not allowed in some British schools. But they might allow students to wear certain hairstyles during the World Cup years. Two students had a special design shaved into their hair during 2002 World Cup. But they were not accepted by their school after that because the school said the rules changed since then.
