I'm not 100% sold on school uniforms, but this is one debate that would be avoided by mandating a uniform at school.

Then again, it's sad that one cannot show patriotism for one's own country at a school largely funded by government/tax dollars.

Unfortunately we're getting to a point in this society where everything offends someone and unlike the good old days where being offended by something was part of a normal day and the right to be offensive was still protected, nowadays it seems like everyone has to walk on eggshells... Uh oh, I hope I didn't offend any chickens with that eggshell comment...

As for uniforms, I wore one everyday in catholic school, then I went to a public high school and was totally lost fashion wise...

It's actually illegal to wear a flag as clothing, but OK if the clothing has a flag on it.

Display the flag proudly and often. never let anyone tell you otherwise.

As was previously mentioned, I wouldn't be a bit surprised if the ban arose from some kid wearing the flag of the Confederate States. Odds are he or she associates that flag with being a Rebel and doesn't give a damn about what it stood for, and what it represents to others. Sad but true. History is lost on a lot of kids these days it seems. As for what Flags are supposed to be used for and their meaning, I'll leave that to others. (I have a feeling hb_99 could give us the history of flags, I however am too tired. )

I on the other hand favor unis for kids in schools. And before anyone jumps, I went to yer typical Catholic school with light blue shirts and navy pants. And yes, I DESPISED them... Sadly tho, it seems like more kids, (not ALL mind you) these days put so much stock in the superficial... and the reason they are in school in the first place is lost...

In a nutshell, get a damn education, make something of yourself. Do something for society as a whole... Worry about who's wearing what at the Country Club when you retire, then go back to your yacht/summer home/5 star resort and bang your trophy wife/pool boy.

(hell that's my plan anyway. The trophy wife that is... )

TITLE 4 CHAPTER 1 § 8

8. Respect for flag

(d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker’s desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general.

I just want to be sure I got this. A school in the United States of America, banned the wearing of T-shirt on which the flag of the United States of America is printed. I don't care how you look at this, it is complete and utter BS!!!!

This is what it is all about!

It's not complicated at all for me. Let the kids wear all the red white and blue US clothing they want to.

Edit: Oh, and if you don't like it, don't let the door hit you in the arse on your way out.

When I was a kid (hehe I am only 23) every class room had a flag in it. Now, one of my classes had a flag with 49 stars but, nonetheless, it was a flag. Is this still the case today or is that offensive too? Oh yeah, we said the Pledge of Allegiance every morning and had a moment of silence, damn straight!
