Things That Are Banned In Schools Which Don’t Make Any Sense


Bizarre Things Students Are Banned From Doing
At Schools Students, whether you’re in high school,
elementary school, or even university, listen up! When it comes to teaching the next generation
of students, there’s a long line of history of certain objects that may be banned from
your classroom. From skinny jeans to yoga pants, there are
all sorts of things which are banned from schools in hopes of creating a more family
friendly environment. If you’re a teacher or know a teacher, you
probably know that they have a love/hate relationship with all of the students they teach. Teachers have been around since the earliest
civilizations, however, the natural predilection of children finding ways to goof around has
surely been around for just as long. Well, some schools have taken matters into
their own hands and have banned some things that they find inappropriate. From fidget spinners to different types of
clothing, there are all sorts of crazy and ridiculous things that schools have banned,
and you might just be surprised to find out what some of them are. If you remember some of your favorite things
being banned when you were in elementary school or high school, then you will totally be able
to relate to the things in this video. Before we begin this video, make sure you

have been banned from schools for one reason or another. 16) Snowball Fights: Many different schools
across North America and the United Kingdom have banned snowball fights in schools to
ensure the safety to all the children. Sometimes snowballs can contain pebbles, ice
shards, or debris. Okay, so this is a pretty reasonable ban,
and it is totally understandable. Snowball fights can result in injuries if
the snowballs are big enough and hard enough – and especially if they are thrown at a close
distance. And although any kid who has ever participated
in a snowball fight can probably agree that they’re a lot of fun, when it comes to safety,
the schools might have a point here. 15. Yoga pants: are you guilty of this ridiculously
comfortable fashion trend? Most of us probably are. But you might be surprised to find out that
yoga pants, along with leggings and jeggings, have been banned in some places across the
United States! That’s right, similar to another ban on
skinny jeans, the ban on the stretchy comfortable material that yoga pants are made has been
implemented across many schools in the United States. The grounds for banning these clothes are
that they are not family friendly enough for young teenagers who are learning to become
adults. Speaking of crazy, ridiculous things that
have been banned from schools, did you know that some schools have a ban that has something
to do with making friends? Yup, you heard me right. It’s absolutely ridiculous – but you’ll just
have to wait until the very end to find out what that ban is! 14) Hugging: In an effort to teach the children
at a Northampton school personal space and boundaries respect has banned hugging from
in the building. This decision has been met with some controversy
with the children’s parents. Seems like people can’t really do much these
days without getting into trouble. 13) LOL, WTF, and Other Acronyms: A school
in South Yorkshire in the UK has banned students from using acronyms like “LOL” and “WTF”,
noting that all student bodies must use proper English when communicating with teachers and
each other. Watch out millennials – this ban is for you. Whether you’re in elementary school or high
school, you may have a hard time making sure you don’t get in trouble for breaking this
rule! Surprised by any of these ridiculous bans
so far? Well, keep watching as we continue to count
down the top ridiculous bans in schools around the world! 12) Tag: Believe it or not, this legendary
game has been banned from some U.S. schools due to the physical and sometimes emotional
turmoil they cause children, but isn’t that the point? What are the kids supposed to do during recess
if they can’t play tag?! This is a travesty that must be overturned! 11) Toilet Paper Tubes: Some schools in the
United Kingdom have banned the use of toilet paper tubes in fear of them spreading germs
or bacteria to the children. Luckily, you can still use paper towel tubes. Not entirely sure how students are supposed
to access toilet paper if it’s not in a tube, but I guess we’ll leave that to our own imaginations… 10) Shorts For Boys: A school in Britain declared
that shorts for boys were banned, and boys should be forced to wear pants. There is, however, no ban on wearing skirts. So, according to CNN, the boys who attended
the school that banned shorts protested by wearing skirts, causing a change in the dress
code to allow shorts. Not entirely sure why a school would ban boys
from wearing shorts, but good for them for protesting it! 9) Birthday Party Invitations: In an effort
to make everyone feel included and to put a stop to exclusive behavior, birthday party
invitations are not to be handed out unless everyone in the class is invited. Not sure what to make of this one. I mean, it makes sense, but you can’t really
expect a parent to invite all of the kids in their child’s class to a birthday party
– that’s a lot of cake! 8) Fidget Spinners: The device originally
designed for ADHD sufferers, has quickly become a must-have sensation. However, signs that this addictive device
is not selling as much as they used to have already begun. The toys were considered to be too distracting
in the classroom and so they were banned from several schools. I can totally get this one. There was a time where fidget spinners – much
like any other fad of the past – was all the rage. Every kid and their mom had one, two, maybe
even five of them! Ranging from different colors to cool designs
and even flashing lights, some fidget spinners were decked out! Seems like the fad has died down now – as
they all tend to do – but many schools still hold a ban on them. 7) Dodgeball: This action-packed game with
a rubber ball has been banned in some U.S. schools because it will sometimes make a student
who is playing it act too aggressive and unsafe. Dodgeball is a super fun sport to play, and
banning it just seems like such a drastic thing to do! But it kind of does make sense – I mean, dodgeball
can get pretty violent at times, especially when people are whipping instead of throwing
their balls at people. But what’s a childhood if you don’t get to
experience playing dodge ball at recess or during gym class at school? Well, looks like yet another thing that only
90’s kids will be able to relate to – oh, the good old days. 6) Uggs: Believe it or not, According to the
Daily Mail, these fashionable boots are the perfect way to hide cell phones in the classroom. Girls would hide them inside the boots and
use them in the classroom. Not sure why they wouldn’t just ban cell phones,
but alright. Watch out fashionistas, because your favorite
winter wear may no longer be! 5) Red Ink: A British school has actually
banned their teachers from marking their tests with the fateful red ink. The school feels the use of red ink is too
intimidating or stressful. So…sorry if you’re a fan of red ink, but
if you go to a British school, or are even a teacher in a British school, red pens are
absolutely out of the question. 4) Hoodies and skinny jeans: A school in Connecticut
has banned the use of hoodies and skinny jeans. They banned hoodies because students were
using their to hide their cellphones during class. The large front pocket on the sweaters is
a perfect hiding spot. Skinny jeans were banned because, similar
to yoga pants and jeggings, they were seen as too tight and not family friendly or appropriate
enough to wear at school. 3. Rubber Bands: Quite possibly the first classroom
distraction, rubber bands have been banned from use by students certain classrooms across
the U.S. for their extremely distracting nature. I mean, forget about cell phones, ipads and
laptops…but rubber bands, those have got to go! 2. Facebook: A Jewish school for girls in NYC
has banned the use of Facebook in their schools. The teacher who placed this ban seems to think
that the website invites inappropriate behavior. What kind of inappropriate behaviour, it’s
hard to say. They might as well go ahead and ban the whole
internet while they’re at it, don’t you think? Now that you’ve made it to the end, here’s
the number one craziest thing that has been banned in schools, and it has something to
do with friends! 1. Best Friends: A small school in south-west
London, England has banned their students from becoming best friends with anyone because
if those friendships end it could be traumatic for the kids. This is by far the strangest thing to ever
have been banned in any elementary school or high school. It’s difficult to understand why schools would
even think of banning children from having best friends, but I guess that in this day
and age, almost everything is considered “politically incorrect”. So there you have it! Weird things banned from schools around the
world. From yoga pants to hugs to social media to
even skinny jeans, some of these bans seem just outrageous! Whether the reasoning be that something is
unsafe, not very family friendly, or just plain old inappropriate, you have to admit
that some of these bans are a little over the top. What do you think of these bans? If you’re a student, which one do you think
is the craziest? And what was the weirdest or strangest thing
your elementary school or high school ever banned kids from doing or having? Let us know in the comments section below! Enjoyed this video? Hit the like button and share with your friends! Also, subscribe to our channel for more videos
