These Public School Administrator's should be required to spend a month at Walter Reed Medical Center or any local VA Hospital before they make stupid, non-legal decisions such as this.:angry:

In my opinion these students should be allowed, no not allowed, encouraged to wear their uniforms. State Law should be written to this effect and all School dress codes should reflect it as well.

I challenge ALL of you reading this to attend your next School Board meeting and bring this to the School Boards attention, bring your buddies as well as members of the local recruiting staff, make a stink about this and get it addressed.

Write your state legislator to get this on the state laws.

Let's not just bitch about this, do something!

Right on Wichman! Great words!

Actually, it's quite logical.  You see what kids wear these days?  Schools have been structuring tighter and tighter rules to limit disruptive clothing trends*.  It's part of the school uniform trend:  similar to Scouts:  when you put on the suit, you put on a behavior.  The problem comes down, of course, that you write the rules and forget exceptions, or simply ignore the possibility of needing exceptions.  "My way or highway" thinking will do that.  But I've never been impressed with the flexibility of educators; they tend to be very Establishment, like so many people who don't really understand what they're doing.

 

In the case of a military uniform, the original clothing rule was backed by logic of "if we let him do it, they'll all want it".  Original logic doesn't really apply to the situation, but the administrators are incapable of seeing their way out without a fuss.

 

*and when did two undergarments constitute proper clothing for young ladies!?  Why, I was walking through a shopping mall (before they closed) with my teen daughter and I noticed that all the young girls wore short shorts with the top two buttons undone**.  When I turned to my daughter to scorn this practice....well, you can guess the rest, right?!  Yup.

 

**am I distracting myself?  Well, anyway, one might ask why I noticed?  Where did my eyes automatically rove?  I suppose every generation comes up with new bait for an old hook.
