    We got that **** abolished in 1970. What happened after that, I do not comprehend.

    I've never been a fan of unions. The good ones are extremely rare.

    As far as tenure? Not a fan of that, either. Jobs and job stability should be based on how good you are at your job, and no other reason. If you suck at your job, you should be removed - just like any other job.

    Public schools.
    Howdy radcen ....

    Schools dictated clothing and hair styles when I attended school. (It was public school not a uniformed school). Boys pants needed belts at waist height, shirt tails tucked in, sleeved and collared shirts, no t-shirts of any sort; and hair styles were tightly controlled. Girls had similar restrictions for appropriate dress i.e the fit, style, and length of dresses and skirts; blouses and how they buttoned.

    I knew a H.S. senior who was suspended for three days (off the school grounds and unable to make up missed work.. meaning: if one missed a major test one might flunk the course and be required to repeat same course next year) ... His three day suspension was caused by his hair style... the latest fad for boys ... the style was exactly the same as the President of the United States ( John Kennedy ).

    In retrospect, while often unpopular with students, the seemingly harsh restrictive practice of schools at that time taught a very valuable life long lesson.

    In business, when dealing with persons of high income (and self importance), I may choose to wear an easily recognized tailored high value suit and physically comport myself appropriately. I do not don the same clothing to straddle a Harley Davidson or climb onto the saddle of a horse.

    The Lesson of school clothing restrictions:

    To be successful in life, In differing situations, one must exhibit an acceptable modicum of comportment for that specific situation be it attire, physical demeanor, or language usage.

    While children should not be treated as chattel, as often the case when I was young, they have no and should not have 'freedom of speech' to excuse inappropriate demeanor;
    It allows them to perceive an incorrect lesson and narcissistic view of life and social interaction.

    Yes, the school should be able to dictate hair and clothing styles.

    That's mighty ballsy of you. And rude. You don't get to dictate what is, or is not, good parenting.

    High schools should be run like businesses. Proper business hair cuts, clothes and attitude. Maybe we would have less people that just cant understand why they can wear a Guy Harvey fishing tee shirt to a job interview.

    Maybe not, but like me. He may be looking over your child when he or she comes in for a job interview with "bad ass" tattooed on his neck or something similarly stupid.

    My children are not idiots, thankyouverymuch. And wearing a different hairstyle does not make them idiots. If a teacher can't handle something as simple as a purple Mohawk, why is it anybody else's fault?

    Times change. Teachers and school systems should change with them. If hair styles hadn't evolved, everybody would still be wearing hair styles from the 50s.

    We all did idiotic things in high school. My hair was almost down to my belt and as much as I would let it get that way again. I have to work.

    Sieg Heil!

    Did you dress like a nerd when you were in high school? Proper hair cuts, clothes and attitude?

    Didn't you say you were a cop?

    It's all getting clearer - you became a cop so you could get back at all the kids who made fun of you for your clothes, and your Beaver Cleaver haircut.
