Issue: Looming flip-flop ban creates flap: Federal Way School Board mulls dress code change to enhance safety (may require free subscription)/Joseph Montes, Tacoma News-Tribune
More Info: “The Federal Way School Board appears ready to change the district dress code so students can no longer wear the cheap, backless flats. Board members won’t take a final vote until at least next week, but for now students and local officials are weighing in. … The board decided to give flip-flops the boot because they consider them dangerous for working in school laboratories and for walking in crowded halls.”
Question: Should flip-flops be banned at school, as a safety measure?
