Kids with saggy pants being "Urkeled." Good idea?

Threat of being "Urkeled" keeps students from sagging.

http://www.wmctv.com/Global/story.asp?S=13625348

Westside Middle School combined a popular TV character, an award system and zip ties to turn their campus into a no sagging zone.

Staff members walk the halls with zip ties.  If they see saggy pants, the student gets "Urkeled."

"You slide it over, take out the remaining slack," said teacher Shaka Greene.  "It's almost impossible to get it off."

"They can put your pants as high as your chest," said Vann.  "And they can put as many as three or four on you."

The school even has an Urkel photo board for all the students to see.

  • I don't think thats right.. They can ruin the students' jeans and if they yank em up to high..it can hurt.

    I do think that they should maybe have sweatpants or something there.. and make the kids change or maybe have the parents bring them other pants if they are not following the dress code.

  • Sounds like a good idea. I wish I could do that to some people in public. What is sad is that alot of them are adults.

  • Funny but the kids that wear their pants on the ground won't comply. They'll think it's stupid.

  • I think it's an excellent idea. Much better than mine which is to use a staple gun to keep them in place!!
