Students Told Not to Wear Pink

by TChris

School administrators love to enact dress codes that substitute conformity for individuality in heavy-handed, albeit ineffective, attempts to keep "gang dress" out of public schools. TalkLeft reported yesterday on a school's misguided effort to prevent a Muslim student from wearing a hijab. Now read about Clifford Pierce Middle School in Merrillville, Indiana where students are discouraged from wearing pink, and where students who wore pink to protest the policy were told to change their clothes.

Perhaps school administrators struggling to Leave No Child Behind might want to focus their scarce resources on educating kids rather than telling them how to dress.
