    Jeez... so you want the three socially awkward kids that do wear clothes like that to feel free to do so at the cost of having uniforms that can solve much more important problems? And prove it crushes individuality already or put a sock in it.

    Sports teams have not come up; American or state flags have not come up; religious or political gets dicey; Schools have Home Rule. Teenagers are not adults, mentally. They make mistakes and poor choices. If you give them an inch, you'll lose your school.

    Our high school has NO problem wearing lanyards with their student ID. Many high schools have given up. What does that teach? High schools have added community service to graduation requirements.

    High schools are under tremendous pressure to take ill-prepared 9th-graders and teach them 4 years of Math, English and Science for Junior testing. High school students want Guidance, but of course would never admit this in public. They know that life after high school will be tough. I believe today's teenagers are markedly better-behaved than their predecessors, though not as talented across-the-board.

If you want to teach diversity then you need to allow an atmosphere where it can be experienced.

    What's to prove? When you limit the diversity by making kids choose a handful of approved articles of clothing that does not allow any expression I think that pretty much makes the case for lack of diversity.

    Heck some of these schools that have opted for uniforms have a list of backpacks, shoes and lunch boxes that will be acceptable. God forbid the Avengers or Captain America be on a child's lunch box. Idiots.

    Cell phones are part of school apparel. Get permission to be led around a high school this semester, especially during pass periods, if you dare.

    See if the girls hands can touch their legs below their shorts when standing straight up, breaking school rules.

    Cell phone texting is at the top of distractions, along with the opposite sex and what you're wearing, etc. Unless you remove distractions from kids, they will not learn.

    Neither are the repercussions from bullying new. You may not be aware that bullying now appears on the home page of every school website. There is a reason for this. Have you been to a wake recently for one of your students who committed suicide due to bullying?

    Emotional appeals will get you no where.

    Do you know what it is like for a man to deal with a high school girl breaking the dress code. The teacher is accused of staring and is put on trial while the girl shows it all. When you meet the Mom, you'll understand the girl. Admins checking girls at the front door would stop this.

    An expected comment from one who hasn't been there or done that but expects miracles. Libertarian is just another name for nothing left to lose.

    I don't expect anything. Kids get picked on for being different. Sometimes it's just teasing, but other times the kid is getting beaten up on a regular basis. Most kids get through it, but every once in a while one of them decides to commit suicide. It happens.
