but seriously... I understand the need for dress codes and all that but does a dress code that says that butts and boobs need to be covered have to do with slogans on a t-shirt? How does a t-shirt with an American Flag and a patriotic slogan interfere with the learning process? Sure, if thats the rule then the students should abide by it, but if it's a rule just for the sake of having a rule you can expect people to push it. To me it sounds like the type of thing where they made a rule in over reaction to some problem in the past and rather deal with the specific problem they made soem wide spread blanket policy in an attempt to be "PC" and to have to deal with specific issues.

BTW this is the dress code for my kids school:

The primary responsibility for appearance and grooming rests with the student and his/her parents/guardians. Students
should avoid dress and grooming styles that can be hazardous to themselves or others in their school activities; such as, shop,
lab work, physical education, and art. Grooming and dress that prevent the student from doing his/her best work because of
blocked vision or restricted movement should be discouraged, as should be styles that create or are likely to create a
distraction or disruption of classroom order.
Provocative clothing is inappropriate in our educational setting because it is distracting to the teaching and
learning atmosphere at school. Examples of unacceptable dress include, but are not limited to:
Short shorts and/or low rider pants

Tube, halter, or spaghetti strapped tops or dresses
Skirts that are too short (above mid thigh)
Blouses with revealing necklines, bare midriffs or shoulders
Transparent or revealing clothing
Garments that expose underclothing
Further, clothing that advertises or promotes alcohol, tobacco, drugs, weapons or a related activity is considered
inappropriate because this is contrary to our basic school policy regarding alcohol and drugs. For example: "beer Tshirts
or hats", are not acceptable. Students are not to wear items considered potentially dangerous such as chains,
pointed rings or metal spikes.
Building administrators reserve the right to request a student to change, send students home or to in-school suspension if
they come to school inappropriately dressed. Student attire should not interfere with the educational process.

not to much different than when I was in school.

A community as a whole needs to work on such rules and limitations.

I agree the parents should be in control of there childrens education and the envronment in which they learn, but unfortunately the government is in control and that's how the government like's it.

Here's an interesting link with an interesting view on government schools....

Liberty is your right.

This is socialist behavior at it's finest. And to think they teach in school that the US fought hard to end communism only to have it reborn right here.
