    I've listen to the proponents of school uniforms claiming they would instill discipline and prevent gang-related violence. They say uniforms and some dress codes lessen peer pressure aggravated by socioeconomic divisions. This debate has been raging for over a decade and there is no proof that is the case. But what it does do is teach these minds of mush making them all dress like one another is that everyone should be socioeconomically equal. That spread the wealth and social justice (the foundation of socialism) is just and right.

    In Tinker v. Des Moines Independent Community School District (1969). In this famous decision, the Court ruled 7-2 that public school officials could not censor student expression — the wearing of black armbands, in that case — unless they could reasonably forecast that the student expression would cause substantial disruption or material interference with school activities or would invade the rights of others. The black arm bands were in protest to the Vietnam war. Several school distrists have overcome zealots in their communities trying to implement school uniform by using this case. May they continue to have success.

    And as for you dress your kid(s) in their uniforms and let their little minds of mush be indoctrinated.
    I am going to say this really slowly for you... wearing a uniform does not indoctrinate kids. They have minds of their own. They express themselves.

    If you are talking about my kids in that last sentence then we can have a discussion about that if you like. We could even meet up if you like. Don't talk about my kids who are already vastly more intelligent than you appear to be.

    Your socio-economic argument is off point since people know who does and does not have money. It does reduce gang pressures. It helps lower socio-economic families as they don't have to purchase as much clothing.

    Last thing... kids don't have 1st Amendment rights. A parent would understand this...

    I suppose you support kids texting all day at school also. BOEs, spineless adminstrators and worn-down parents have given up on many of their teenagers. Start the period at your door greeting students, then go stand behind them, then tell them to look forward.

    Tell this nimrod to try wearing a hat into any of the pricey suburban high schools around Chicago, whether it be for a sporting event--parent-teacher conference or whatever. These schools have "non-stop" police presence and they "open-carry". Gang-bang 101

    Nimby, I understand the need for a dress code. When a girl shows up in class in a pair of shorts with half her ass exposed it's an issue. When a young man comes into class with his underwear showing and his pants are down to his knees, that's an issue. But to deny a student to wear a teeshirt depicting his favorite sports team, or an American Flag, or something religious or political that depicts who this individual is, it shouldn't be any skin off of anyone's nose. If you want to teach diversity then you need to allow an atmosphere where it can be experienced.

    So? Kids get picked on and girls wear sexy clothes. None of that is new.

    No nimrod, I don't support kids texting all day in school. But I do support students having the right to wear clothing that may express political, religious, and other personal views. How in the hell you managed to take that to texting is beyond me except for the possibility that you had to dig for the ridiculous instead of addressing school apparel.
