I guess I'd leave that to the school adminstrators.

I agree w/ what pax said, seems to me those kind of outfits on girls and guys w/ their droopy drawered butt crack hanging out would be much more distracting than PJ's

What is in the imagination is far more distracting especially when you're a teenager and even PJs can be sexual (well they can when you're an adult too but that's a whole other story), but that's a product of natural human thoughts.

I got in trouble for wearing PJ pants to school one day my sophomore year of high school. Of course that was the first day they decided to start cracking down on it. It was during exam week, and it had been sort of a tradition to just go to the exam in your PJs. I was only going to be in school for 1 exam, and i still got my name taken down by the principal. My friend who was with me, who was also in PJ pants, managed to run away before he could get her name too

Nothing ever happened to me though

At my school, if you wear PJ's (or break dress code in any other way) to school they make you change into an old P.E. uniform that is always too big. But it's really funny if a guy's pants are sagging, because an admin. will tie pink rope around their waist to hold the pants up...

I wore PJs to class yesterday.
I'm here to learn, not to look good.

they need to find better ways to occupy their time on the school board. Of all the silly issues, this is the most foolish. These school districts probably have also banned playing dodgeball and christmas parties.

Take on some real issues, like discovering what cafeteria chicken nuggets are really made out of

So would I.

If what we wear reflects our inner state, and I believe it does, what does wearing pajamas to school suggest? Like if my house is a mess it's usually because my mind is in disorder (not true for everyone, of course). When I shower and put on clean, ironed clothes I feel more clear-headed and ready for the day's challenges. When I'm in pajamas I am definitely comfortable but also in a lounge around the house mood--or going to bed. I think if I were a parent I'd probably not interfere too much with current fashion trends but I'd probably ask my kids to at least think about it and to monitor their attitude/state of mind when wearing pajamas to school, for example, vs. wearing better clothing, and let them decide for themselves if there is any difference in their learning/attention span/etc.

This has caught on at my college--which is ironic, given that we all have to commute there as there are no dorms. I can understand it if you live on campus and have an early class, but when you have to drive there? It's only girls who do it, I guess guys sleep in their underwear.

Weirdly, on my campus, we then have the opposite of girls decked out like they are going clubbing, down to the stiletto boots and fringe tops.

Girls like me, in t-shirts and jeans, are freaks.

Pajamas are instruments of Satan. They should go to school wearing only the suit that God made them in.

Perhaps NBC was referring to what you usually sleep in being distracting....

Putting on "good" clothes never worked that way for me...it just made/makes me uncomfortable. And if I'm uncomfortable all I'm thinking about is how miserable I am.

Guess it's different for each person.
