Baned T-Shirt Design

The shirt was banned in Merced, CA. middle-school.

Exactly how I feel. A quote from the source Dad29 provided.

I'm not a lawyer, and I don't think school officials should be expected to be either. The shirt is provocative. It's meant to be. I think that teachers and principals should have the right to decide what's appropriate. Is that 100% fair? No, it's not.

In a perfect world, the school would have had a discussion with the girl and her parents about the issue, and perhaps clarified their dress code. It would not have become yet another litigious opportunity to politicize everything that happens in public schools.

There was another court case made it to the Supreme Court where a kid had a poster that said "Bong Hits 4 Jesus." The school in that instance made the decision to censor the poster. The school won the case, limiting students free speech. I think it was a good decision.

Even when the speech is for an issue I agree with.

Banned, not baned. That's ok, we all make typing errors.

Another reason for school uniforms.
