    Yes, and that is caused by a need for _____________.

    Kids are in school for one purpose and one purpose only: To learn. They need to dress in such a way as not to call attention to their manner of dress, as that is a distraction to learning. Teachers and administrators don't need to waste time figuring out what the latest gangland styles may be.
    They don't need to waste time doing that anyway.

    Further, the argument that dress codes, or even uniforms, are against individuality are just so much hot air. Kids are, and will be individuals, after all regardless of their clothing. Moreover, teens dress not to be individuals, but to conform to whatever their peer group finds cool.
    So what if they do dress to conform to the group? Some do and some don't, but that hardly calls for a system that makes that decision for them. Uniforms are designed for exactly what I said and they have always been used for such. This is in fact no different.

    Worrying about this just seems like conspiracy stuff to me. No rights are taken away.

    No, they don't, and wouldn't have to if the school required uniforms.

    No, they don't, and wouldn't have to if the school required uniforms.
    They don't have too either way. Silly point really.

    That was not my point. Rights are lost in either situation mentioned.

    And I haven't been wrong once.

    The parents and school board say that they do.

    Well I guess you aren't reachable then because you are wrong.

    They work for the school board, which represents the parents, so yes.
