It's August... when we should all take the time to stop and say aloud those three special words: "Back to school."

Back To School Month -- Soon the kids will be heading back to school and God bless those teachers who have to put up with them all day. Still, while it's tough being a teacher in 2019, it's still better than it was in 1915. The following is a list of rules that American teachers in 1915, were told to obey.
You will not marry during the term of your contract.
You are not to keep company with men.
You must be home between the hours of 8pm and 6am, unless attending a school function.
You may not loiter downtown in ice cream stores.
You may not travel beyond city limits, unless you have the permission of the chairman of the board.
You may not ride in a carriage or automobile with any man, unless he is your father or brother.
You may not smoke cigarettes.
You must wear bright colors to school.
You may under no circumstances, dye your hair.
You must wear at least 2 petticoats.
Your dresses must not be any shorter than 2 inches above the ankle.

Of course this all really sucked if you were a guy!
