    Maybe choice was more appreciated sixty years ago. I personally don't enjoy oppressive legislation. I'd rather not be forced into your morality.

    It is a private school and they can do what they want. More parents are taking their children out of public schools because of the left wing education taught there,

    I see this as more an issue of morality than legality. These people wish to be seen as a compass...and do not even know north from south.


    If this defines Christian ethics, it clearly sucks doggy d!ck.

Are you asking us to guess what that reason is?

    So far all we can really go on is that the child and her parents seemed to be unwilling to alter the child's dress and appearance to follow standards set by the school. Look, I'm not saying that I like the rules the school has, but the parents don't have to send their kid there either. Nobody has a RIGHT to go to a private school.
    The school's problem with her, is that she looks and acts a boy. Since this a private school they certainly have a right to reject her if they choose to. I explained in the OP that I'm not religious in any way, however it seems to me that rejecting her is un-Christian like.

    I seem to recall there's a Fed law about that... but in any case, they can enforce gender-specific dress codes I'm fairly sure.

    I don't believe anyone is questioning the school's right to reject her. I question why anyone would want to put their kids in a school that has those attitudes.
