Pull Up Your Pants Day

Teachers Diana Carter and Dona McKenzie are fed up with their students wearing clown trousers - y'know, pants that sag to their bums - so they came up with this: "Pull Up Your Pants Day."

Following in the footsteps of President Obama, who last year told MTV that "brothers should pull up their pants," the school is encouraging kids to hide the underwear and hike up their trousers.

The day was devised by two teachers, Diana Carter and Dona McKenzie, who had become frustrated with the low-hanging look in the school's hallways. The two even managed to get a Pompano Beach Wal-Mart to donate belts for teachers to hand out to offenders.

"The young men need to be educated based upon where it originated from, which it came from our prisons," McKenzie said. "They need to be aware of how they're looking when they're out and walking around, how people perceive them."
