Droopy Drawers

A measure to do away with droopy
drawers in Florida schools is headed to the Senate floor.
But that's after the Legislature convenes its regular annual
session in March. The measure cleared the Prekindergarten-12th
Grade Education Committee yesterday.
It states that youths who let their pants sag to expose
underwear, G-strings or worse at school will get a verbal warning
after a first offense or face suspension if they continue.
Senator Gary Siplin's bill calls for a warning and phone call to
parents the first time a student exposes his or her sexual organs,
even if covered by underwear, in a vulgar or indecent manner.
A second offense would result in a three-day suspension and
additional violations would draw 10 days.
An identical House bill has not yet had a committee hearing.
