(CaptainBerz) Uggs have been banned in a school in PA. Sure Uggs and other high top boots can hide stuff, but how about instead of banning Uggs they just discipline the kids that get in trouble.

“Uggs may be ugly in some fashionistas’ eyes, but should they be banned?
Yes, according to a Pennsylvania school principal who says the ubiquitous fur-lined, comfy boots and their imitators have become the hiding place of choice for cellphones and other gadgets that aren’t supposed to be brought to class.
The ban takes effect Monday at Pottstown Middle School outside Philadelphia, where the principal, Gail M. Cooper, announced the rule last week in a letter to parents. The ban applies to boots that do not fit tightly around the calf or ankle, such as open-top Uggs. Boots with zippers or laces may still be worn, as long as they remain zipped and tied. ”
