Student asked to change out of kilt seeks dress code change
BETSY TAYLOR
Associated Press
JACKSON, Mo. - When Nathan Warmack wore a Scottish kilt to a high school dance, the senior wasn't trying to make a point. He just wanted to honor his heritage.

But then a principal told him to change into a pair of pants. And what began with a few yards of tartan has sparked an international debate about freedom, symbols and cultural dress.

More than 1,600 people have signed an Internet petition seeking an apology for the student. Scots in the United States are assembling a traditional ensemble they hope the student will wear to the prom. And his family is trying to change the school's dress code policy.

"It's a kilt. It's going to turn heads, but I never believed it would have become what it is," Warmack said.

"I had a teacher say you weren't really wearing it to honor your heritage. You were wearing it for the reaction. No, I wasn't," he said.

Warmack is a defensive lineman on the football team, the sort of student whose grades are "in the alphabet," he said - not too high, but good enough to get him to college, where he'd like to study to be a police officer or a history teacher. He lives in Jackson, a growing, largely middle-class city of about 14,000 people about 110 miles from St. Louis.

He got interested in his family's Scottish ties after seeing Mel Gibson's 1995 movie "Braveheart," about William Wallace's battle to overthrow English rule in 13th century Scotland. Warmack reads books about Scotland and checks Web sites to learn more about his family's genealogy.
Then, he bought a kilt off the Internet to wear to his school's formal "Silver Arrow" dance in November. Warmack said he showed it to a vice principal before the dance, who joked he'd better wear something underneath it, and Warmack assured him he would.

The student's parents, Terry and Paula, helped him piece together the rest of his outfit, a white shirt and black tie with white socks and black boots.

"We knew it wasn't the formal regalia," said Nathan's father. "We wanted it to be acceptable for the occasion."

After Nathan and his date posed for pictures, Principal Rick McClard, who had not previously seen the kilt, told the student he had to go change. Warmack refused a few times and said the outfit was recognizing his heritage.

Warmack said McClard told him: "Well, this is my dance, and I'm not going to have students coming into it looking like clowns."

McClard later said he had no recollection of saying that, Nathan's dad said. The principal did not return phone calls seeking comment.

The school district's superintendent, Ron Anderson, said under the district's dress code policy, McClard has the authority to judge appropriate dress for extracurricular activities, including dances.

"It's mainly to protect from the possibility of a disruption or something that could be viewed as a disruption," Anderson said. The superintendent said he doesn't see the school board taking that authority away from the principal.

But several Scottish heritage organizations are angry, pointing out that a kilt is a symbol of Scottish pride and considered formal dress.

"It comes down to symbols, right?" said Tom Wilson, a Texas commissioner for the Clan Gunn Society of North American, a Scottish heritage organization.

"To say the traditional Scottish dress makes you look like a clown is a direct insult to people of Scottish heritage and those who live in Scotland." He wondered what would have happened if, for example, an Indian girl wore a sari to the same dance. "Would she have faced the same restrictions?"
Another Clan Gunn member, Beth Gardner, started an online petition seeking an apology for Warmack. It questions in part the notion that the kilt was a distraction.

"From what? From the intense concentration it takes to dance?"

Nathan's parents think the principal should formally apologize to their son, and the family is trying to figure out how to get the school's dress code changed so that students could have the right to wear formal cultural attire and so that the principal alone doesn't have power over those decisions.
"We have to have guidelines, and they have to be equal for everyone across the board," Terry Warmack said.

Around the country, other schools have wrestled with the appropriateness of kilt-wearing.
A principal in Victoria, Texas, ordered two boys into "more appropriate" attire when they wore kilts to school in 1992, saying: "I know kilts. Those weren't kilts and the boys aren't Scots."

In 1993, a student in Fayette County, Ga., was not allowed to enter his prom at McIntosh High School because he showed up in a kilt and refused to change clothes.

And while they weren't trying to dress in kilts, a few boys were allowed to wear skirts to class at Franklin Community High School in Indiana in 1997, when a superintendent said different people express themselves in different ways.

In Warmack's case, Scottish groups are hoping they can help him to establish a formal Scottish ensemble that more fully reflects his heritage, including pieces that are being handmade for Warmack in Oklahoma, Georgia and Florida.

Warmack said he's concerned that school officials are just waiting for the situation to blow over, and that the policy won't be changed.

"This has picked up a lot of steam," he said, "but it hasn't really gotten anywhere."

I don't remember if it was the Navy or Marines, but a few years back a guy showed up in his dress uniform and got turned away. He was supposed to wear a tux.

Back then many on arfcom blasted him for "not following the rules"
Link Posted: 12/22/2005 8:11:35 AM EDT
Heck, if he really is Celtic, why not? As long as he's wearing the appropriate tartan for his clan/locale (Or one of the two 'generic' ones).

He probably shouldn't wear something underneath though, if it's going to be done right.

I debated showing up at Ft Knox in a kilt, for Basic. I figured with my accent, height, age, rank and prior experience I was going to stand out anyway, why not do it right? A rare, but surprisingly strong bout of reality hit me shortly before the date, however, and I decided that it might not be such a good idea.

Not wearing kilts on a daily basis is pretty irrelevant. I'll wager much of the Tartan Army (Scottish football/rugby supporters) don't wear kilts every day either, but that doesn't stop them wearing the gear at matches. (and to pick up women)

Standard military dress uniform does not qualify as formal attire. That's actually specified at least in Army regulations. Other services might be different.

In the Army, Mess Dress qualifies. It's bloody well expensive, though. Mess dress is the coat with tails and all the little itty bitty mini medals and that jazz. It's sharp, but unless you're a field grade officer, you can't afford it.

At least with the Army, there was also an intermediate stage, "dress blues."

I'm not sure what traditional formal attire for Scots might be. My heritage is Irish. As far as I know, we didn't do formal things. We just got drunk a lot, as far as I can tell.

I could care less what these kids wear so long as they don't have private parts hanging out of whatever they are wearing. Far more concerning to me are prom dresses that leave 75% of a girls's breast hanging out in the open. At least the kilt would cover that dude's cock and balls, so it serves the purpose.

If women can wear short skirts, men can wear shorts or kilts, as well. Otherwise that's just bogus sexist bullshit.

Agreed.

Most people don't wear thier tuxedo on a daily basis either. However there was a time when they were regularly worn to dinner. Hence the proper term dinner jacket. British military officers routinely 'dressed for dinner' even if they were in the middle of Africa.

Kilts in Scotland can be worn with formal attire or a more casual attire.



Prince Charles on his way to church in Scotland. Here the kilt is largely worn simply in place of pants.



Formal wear, notice the short jacket similar to mess dress with little diamonds, wing collar shirt, bow tie, different sporan.

Thanks for the pic!

I can see him not being allowed to enter because he isn't wearing a jacket or any sort. A prom is a semi-formal event and as such jackets should be required.

So there is a reason to not let him in, but the kilt isn't it.

Another question is, if you aren't allowed to wear a kilt to the prom, then what does thier Highland Games team wear? Do they toss the caber in a wrestling singlet?

FWIW there is a county in NC called Scotland County, where there is a Scotland High whose mascot is the Fighting Scot. They always have Scottish foriegn exchange students and I suspect kilts would be well recieved.

One of the worst-looking "kilts" I've ever seen. No sporran, no hose- what are those, white socks and Doc Martens? No class!

He'd been better off going to www.utilikilt.com.

If he's serious about the kilt, then he's an ignorant goof. Otherwise, he's pulling everyone's leg.

FWIW I asked Mrs 95th Foot, who, unlike anybody here, is a REAL Scot. She was born in Jamestown, raised in Balloch, Dunbartonshire, attended Glasgow Univ., class of 1987.

She says the kilt is for tourists and weddings. You see more kilts in Scotland on English, Canadian, Japanese and US wannabe Scots/tourists than on actual Scots.

As my missus said at an over-the-top Scottish Festival in Quechee, Vermont a while back, "You lot are more Scottish than I am....."

If his school allows people wear the Gheto crap then he should wear his Kilt, otherwise stay with the dress code IMO.
