The Slow Death of Individuality

"SAN FRANCISCO -- Public schools don't violate students' freedom of expression by requiring them to wear uniforms, a federal appeals court in San Francisco ruled Monday.

In a 2-1 decision, the Ninth U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a Nevada school district's clothing rules against challenges from students, including a high school junior who was suspended five times for a total of 25 days for wearing a T-shirt with religious slogans." (source)

I find this very amusing. The MOST liberal court in the land rules that uniforms aren't a violation --the same court that probably admires the uniformity of communism and subscribes to the "we're all winners!" mentality... Let's turn our kids into the North Korean army --maybe if we make them indistinguishable it will be easier to mold them into one and keep their minds from straying to thoughts of their own...

I know many of you don't agree and are cool with uniforms...but you're wrong --it's the first step.
