  • I believe that all schools should have a set uniform this would solve the problem.
  • No. Taking religious rights AWAY from students is just as much an intervention as forcing prayer before class on the entire student body, regardless of religious preference. The school should not be involved in the students' religious practices whatsoever.
  • yes - when in Rome, do as the Romans do!
  • Yes, but only if they have a rational basis for the prohibition that is not based solely on religious grounds. The 1st Amendment's establishment clause prohibits congress from passing laws that "respect an establishment of religion." This has been incorporated against the states through the due process clause of the 14th amendment. When it comes to regulating religious "speech" (including clothing) the establishment clause requires that the state's treatment of religious speech be neutral, both between types of religious speech and between religious and secular speech. In this context, if the school bans all clothing which is controversial or which causes a disturbance, a kid wearing a "God doesn't like gays" shirt that causes controversy can be prohibited from wearing the shirt as long as they would stop a kid from wearing gang colors or something similar. As long as the school has a secular purpose for the regulation and is neutral in its application, it doesn't violate the establishment or free exercise clauses.
  • No what differance does it really make wearing it or not... its not like by wearing it they are enforcing others to believe, so there is no problem
  • If the school dress code policies are not being broken, then they should be able to wear what they want.
