Aug 17th 2009 11:07AM For students in JR. High & up I recomend using a student planer. My daughter uses it every day & having it has saved her more than once! =)

Inflammatory language like "grabbed" and "marched" is foolish. She was WALKED from the lunchroom to the office, no grabbing, and told to call home and get another shirt- standard policy. Political or racial shirts are not allowed either. The parent of that kid would be the first one in the principal's office if someone were wearing a pro-choice shirt, or an emblem promoting the muslim religion. Idiots.
Well let me tell you that most of the dress code issues are handled on a case by case basis. It all begins with a "judgement call" by a teacher or any other staff that sees the shirt first! After that steps will be taken as far as a call home to get a new shirt, or giving the option to wear the shirt inside out, or wearing a shirt from the lost & found. Again it's a "judgement call" for who ever is handeling it.
By the way during the last election 2/3 of my daughters Jr. high had on "Obama" shirts, or "No More Bush" on election day. Not 1 kid was ever told not to wear a "political" shirt. Not 1 kid got in any trouble! Perhaps this school staff has nothing better to do, but seeing as they are not far from us and in California, I can think of a few ways to better spend their time! They would do well to sit in on a 7th or 8th grade history class & learn about FREE SPEACH! I'm sure they they could learn a thing or 2!
Jul 8th 2009 12:06PM I can't answer for this child but I can tell you that I formed my views on abortion at the age of 10. I heard about it in a conversation my parents & grandparents were having. It was an election year & as we all know abortion is always a hot topic in politics. I simply asked what it was & was given a truthful answer along with the views of each side. I made up my own mind & have NEVER changed my view on abortion, and that was several decades ago!
Further more, I have a child in Jr. High in California not far from this school & during this past election 2/3 of the school were wearing OBAMA t-shirts to school. I don't see how 1 is better than the other!
I'm sure their parents got them the t-shirts as well.
If rappers can use curse words in their so called songs then the rest of us have the right to wear clothes with our views on them. Free Speach is just that.... FREE to ALL!
I truly hope the girls & her family win their case.
Sep 2nd 2008 2:43PM Are you kidding me??????? You must NOT have a daughter! I have 3 & let me tell you they are constantly bombarded with pictures of under weight woman & girls in the media. my girls are tall & thin but when seeing a 6 foot 90 lbs. girl they think they must be FAT because they don't look that way. The ONLY answer is to premote good health not skinny people. God made us in all different shapes & sizes for a reason. Good health dose not come with a size on it. I wish I could get the designers of todays clothing lines to sit down & rethink the message they are sending to our next generation! I for one am getting sick of undoing the damage the media & designers are doing to my girls! People like you don't make it any better either! P. S. NOBODY said it was ok to be FAT or eat whatever you want!

Jul 9th 2008 10:07AM Not one person on here has ask for that mother to be perfect! We simply asked that she infact be an active parent. By active I mean that SHE should be active in teaching her kids how to behave on a plane or anywhere else in the world. Honestly I've traveled by plane ALL my life & let me tell you my mother taught us how to act BEFORE we became a problem. We knew from an early age that you only get up to use the bathroom. We were taught to respect others. She also planed ahead, we had books to color in & read & small games to play. Was she perfect? No. Were we perfect kids? No. Did we behave & respect all the others on our flights? YES!
