In May, The Oracle reported on a bill sent to lawmakers regarding a ban on sagging pants.
“Sagging” is widely believed to have been adopted from the United States prison system where belts were prohibited to keep prisoners from using them as weapons.
The style was later popularized by hip-hop artists in the 1990s, and from then on, it has been a popular style in Florida’s public schools and society.
Florida’s legislative body passed a bill on May 13 prohibiting males (or females) to let their pants “sag” and expose their underwear and any body parts in a “vulgar” way.
Dress code has been a big part of the Hillsborough County school system since day one.
The new law is being enforced further since society took such interest in it.
Even though the punishments in Florida’s school systems aren’t as severe [as the state law’s], they will still follow the handbook guidelines.
