American schoolgirls banned from wearing ugg boots

Pupils of one of the schools in a suburb of Philadelphia (Pennsylvania) are forbidden to wear fashionable boots with fur trim at the school since January 30. In particular, we are talking about the products of the Australian company Ugg. As it turned out, shoes that are popular among teenagers and youth serve ... as a cache for mobile phones.

According to the rules in force in a high school in the town of Pottstown, since January 30, students are required to wear removable shoes, and leave their mobile phones in the locker room for the duration of their studies, local media reported.

The fact is that in ugg boots you can unnoticeably carry a cell phone into the classroom, which, as teachers are sure, distract American youths from the educational process. The head of the municipal department of public relations, John Armato, said that after two warnings, the "cell phones" from the violators would be confiscated.

“I understand that there are some students who carry their phones in their shoes, but why should such measures be extended to another 600 students?” Complains the mother of one of the schoolgirls, Adriana Beyer. “Nevertheless, I told my daughter that this rule has been introduced for everyone, and we will follow it,” ITAR-TASS reports.
