Should one be allowed to wear a T-shirt with a political statement to high school? Why or why not?


Many schools prohibit this now. What is your take on that?

    But they can wear a t-shirt that is about hip-hop music and it could be controversial. What's the difference? Isn't this an opportunity to open a discourse for people who will in 2 years time or less be voting?

    Schools are known liberal strongholds. There must be rules outside of political bent. Schools can't make that decision.

    But that happens anyway with non-political t-shirts. This is an opportunity to teach students how to constructively deal with disagreement---debate, etc. How to agree to disagree but respect the other side. Something we all could use, no?

    Parental authority. We have a winner. The parents should decide what is acceptable in schools, not the government. The teachers and admins must adhere to the wishes of the parents.

    So if I am a citizen of Germany AND the United States (dual citizenship), I can't wear a German flag on my t-shirt to school? But, I can wear a Bible quote on my shirt? Where is that an American value? I thought we were a secular state?
