    That's why your opinion is invalid, you're trying to compare two different things. Those kids can wear those shirts in public. The school didn't want them to wear it on their property, that's fine. School board sets the rules for the school. What people do abroad or even in public or other private establishments has no bearing on the school, its rules, and their decision to have the children remove their shirts.

    Hell when I was a kid, we couldn't wear those Big Johnson T-shirts to school.

    You know the time is right to take control, we gotta take offense against the status quo

Perhaps wearing them at school was a bit extreme, but schools ban all sorts of clothing for ignorant reasons. There used to be a time in this country when people were free to say what they wished as long as they did not impede the rights of others.
    Schools are not there for political statements. It is their for education and they have their own rules that must be followed.

    I would not accept any form of politics or religious statements to be entered in school time.
    If someone wishes to make their voice heard in UK, Go protest. Or lobby your MP, or even better! Go speakers corner.

    Just not in school.

    Why can that shirt not be worn on the street? No one is preventing them

    I was attempting to be the opposing voice in this thread, though I am not very good at it. I agree with you guys, just trying to spice-up the conversation.

    This is a pretty well established area. School officials have the right and obligation to make calls about what is and what is not acceptable behavior and dress in their schools.
    I may be wrong.

    It is debatable as to whether or not hey should have been sent home etc.
    However, it's not because of FoS grounds. The only issue is whether or not it was actually disruptive to teh learning environment. The FoS is not absolute nor does it apply equally under all circumstances.
    I may be wrong.

    Islam is a religion, not a race, therefore it's not a racism.
    It's more than a religion. Political Islam is what we have to fear.

    Our laws keep them in check and they do not intend to overthrow our government.
