A school is a place full of rules. But the only thing we always hate about school is the set of strict rules. While rules are necessary to make students obedient, some schools around the world take it too far to stop the school days to be the best days of students.
Even though the rules are meant to be getting casual with time, some of them turned too strange. Starting from banning on hugging, having best friends to wearing yoga pants and even birthday invitations, the rules in schools around the world are beyond your imagination.
