    Father wants school dress code changed after son asked to remove Marines T-shirt

    An Illinois father wants a school district to reconsider its dress code after his son was asked to remove a U.S. Marines T-shirt or be suspended, FoxNews.com has learned.
    Daniel McIntyre, 44, of Genoa, told FoxNews.com that his 14-year-old son, Michael, was asked to remove the T-shirt by eighth-grade teacher Karen Deverell during reading class at Genoa-Kingston Middle School on Monday. Deverell, citing the school’s dress code, said the garment’s interlocking rifles was problematic and had to be removed from sight, McIntyre said.

    I though the cons were all about following the rules and laws of society? I mean, just remove the damn shirt.

    Like the cons are for smaller governemet, i guess it's just another myth.


    i just love this part:

    “He was upset, he couldn’t understand it,” he continued. “He couldn’t understand why a teacher would make him do that.”

    LOL, playing the "VICTIM".

    What seems to be the problem with a USMC shirt with interlocking rifles?

    Well, obviously he has broken a school rule. It's not for me to determine what is wrong with the shirt.

    How is having a dress code fit in with small government to begin with? It doesn't appear you understand the concepts behind any of the tenets you think you're blasting. Unless the dress code is school specific and decided upon by the local parents groups, it's a big government decision. In this case, it's definitely a sign of nanny government in action.

    Was the liberal teacher scared that one of the rifles depicted on the t-shirt would go off or something? gheeze.

    Long before all this started my husband gave the kid's shirts that said "stand back 100 feet or you will be shot" in arabic. . . no way in hell was I letting them wear it to SCHOOL.

    Time to start selling T-shirts that say, "My other T-shirt has a gun on it".

    you have obviously not read the article. why would you comment on an article you have not read?

    do everyone - mostly yourself - a favor and read the article before continuing to discuss it.


    Brett McPherson, the school’s principal, referred questions to Genoa-Kingston Superintendent Joe Burgess, who reiterated that the shirt is not in violation of the district’s dress policy.

    Sorry, but in this case the teacher was wrong. Not only did the shirt not violate school dress code policy (As per what the superintendent said in the article), the teacher did not even report the incident.
