After previous failed attempts, the Tennessee State legislature finally succeeded in March 2012 in passing a bill to stop children from wearing their trousers too low.
Unlike a previous attempt that specified a $250 fine on students who wore their trousers a specific distance below the waist, the new bill leaves it to the discretion of teachers to judge whether trousers are too low and baggy and also to decide the appropriate punishment.
The law still awaits the governor's signature but if approved will take effect on 1 July 2012.
