    A school district where a black student was upset that a classmate was allowed to wear a sweatshirt depicting the Confederate flag said on Friday that after more students went to class wearing Confederate flag clothing, it must be banned. Earlier Friday, Plum Borough School District Superintendent Timothy Glasspool had told the Pittsburgh Tribune-Review that a high school student had a right to wear a sweatshirt depicting a Confederate flag even though it upset the black student and her father. He said courts had determined school officials can’t prevent a student from wearing a sweatshirt unless it’s disruptive. However, when...

    A high school student was threatened with suspension from her classes after wearing a T-shirt declaring Hillary for Prison 2016. Maxine Yeakle, who is voting for Donald Trump, said she was pulled out of class at Boca Raton High School in Florida because of what she was wearing. The 18-year-old posted a video on Facebook on Tuesday, saying the school’s assistant principal had admitted there were no rules against clothes with political slogans on them, but said she faced in-school suspension (ISS) because of the disruption it was causing. …

    A reader writes: I was able to get a summer internship at a company that does work in the industry I want to work in after I graduate. Even though the division I was hired to work in doesn’t deal with clients or customers, there still was a very strict dress code. I felt the dress code was overly strict but I wasn’t going to say anything, until I noticed one of the workers always wore flat shoes that were made from a fabric other than leather, or running shoes, even though both of these things were contrary to the...

    A high school student wearing a Ku Klux Klan costume in the classroom of a Wisconsin high school has sparked outrage online. A classmate at Westosha Central High School took the photo of the student, who wore the KKK outfit while making a presentation about crime in the 1920s. "Once I heard it - I just can`t believe someone would actually put that on," said Brett Sandberg, an alumnus of the school. That was the reaction from many as the image circulated on social media Monday. "I would have said something - like maybe, instead of putting it on, I...

    A Texas high school student was punished with in-school suspension last Monday after a teacher discovered he was wearing an American flag T-shirt, FOX 4 reported. The student, a junior whose name is Jaegur, was wearing the shirt -- which featured an American flag design with an eagle in the foreground -- at Seagoville High School in Dallas when an administrator determined the shirt violated the school dress code. Jaegur’s mom, Shelly Goode, fears the suspension will show up as a permanent mark on his record, ruining any chance her son can earn a scholarship through the ROTC program. “He...

    Henderson State University in Arkadelphia, Arkansas, is facing accusations of racism after attempting to crack down on people wearing saggy pants on campus. The college has not officially banned saggy pants in its dress code, as the school has no official dress code, but signs warning that saggy pants will not be tolerated have gone up around campus and in the student center, the Daily Caller reported. A spokeswoman for the college, Tonya Smith, said that the signs, which also warn against profanity and rude behavior, were intended to discourage disruptive behavior on campus. “Our faculty in particular had experienced...

    A college’s attempt to crack down on the wearing of saggy pants is being attacked as racist against black people. Henderson State University, a public college in Arkadelphia, Ark., hasn’t officially banned such pants in its dress code, but recently signs appeared in its students center warning that saggy pants, along with profanity or rude behavior, would not be tolerated. Tonya Smith, a university spokeswoman, told Inside Higher Ed that the signs were intended to discourage disruptive behavior on campus. “Our faculty in particular had experienced an increase in inappropriate classroom behaviors that were disturbing the learning environment,” Smith said....

    A California school dispute that arose when students wore shirts emblazoned with the American flag on Cinco de Mayo could prompt the Supreme Court to take a new look at free-speech rules for high schools. Ever since students protested the Vietnam War by wearing black armbands, the justices have said the 1st Amendment protects the rights of students to peacefully protest at school, so long as their actions do not lead to a "substantial disruption." In recent years, however, some school officials have moved to curtail political fashion statements such as wearing T-shirts with Confederate flags or anti-gay slogans. They...

    ......over a month after signing the controversial saggy pants ordinance, Ocala Mayor Kent Guinn said Tuesday he no longer supports it..... His stance comes after criticism by the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. The groups claims to be taking direct action against the city, which can mean a lawsuit, according to Dale Landry, with the NAACP Florida chapter. "I'm sorry, it's going to be black males that are the subject of this," Landry said.

    An Edmonton woman who says she’s being discriminated against because she has 22 visible piercings is reigniting the debate about workplace dress codes. Kendra Behringer, 24, complained that one prospective employer threw out her résumé in front of her, but lawyers believe her chances of establishing discrimination are slim to non-existent, while employment and image experts say businesses are entitled to set rules on how workers dress. “The [employer] is going to perhaps wonder, ‘Will this person be able to conform to the rules that we have, or is this somebody who is more rebellious?’” said Diane Craig, president of...

    Islamofascism: Caving to pressure from Muslim groups, the Pentagon has relaxed uniform rules to allow Islamic beards, turbans and hijabs. It's a major win for political correctness and a big loss for military unit cohesion. Also, the sharia-compliant regulation threatens to expand the jihadi Fifth Column that counterintelligence already is dealing with in the wake of the Fort Hood massacre. The FBI is tracking more than 100 suspected jihadists within the military. Making special accommodations for Islam will only attract more Muslims into the military at a time when two recent terror cases highlight the ongoing danger of Muslims in...

    Robert Chambers has been fighting cancer for 10 months so he occasionally wears a beanie to warm his cold head. Morton's staff apparently thought the cap did not fit the restaurant's dress code and ordered him to take it off. Morton’s Steakhouse will donate thousands of dollars to a Tennessee children’s hospital after staff at the restaurant’s Nashville location kicked out a large group when a cancer-ridden diner covered his head with a wool beanie. There was immediate social media backlash after the 16-person Christmas party at the restaurant rang up a $2,500 bill at the chain steakhouse Friday and...

    A Chicago-area high school pulled a senior student from class on Thursday after he showed up to school wearing a Jesus costume for Halloween. Shortly after, the school then reversed its decision and allowed the teen to return to class wearing the costume. Angenetta Frison, mother of Marshon Sanders, a senior at Highland Park High School in Chicago's northern suburbs, said in a statement to a local news outlet that her son was asked to remove his Jesus costume after two teachers at his high school reportedly complained that the costume was offensive. The costume consisted of a long white...

    This isn’t the Los Angeles Unified School District, either, but a school in relatively conservative Orange County that seems to have a strange and inconsistent notion of stamping out images of firearms. Sophomore Haley Bullwinkle had already worn the NRA t-shirt she received as a gift from her father to her high school several times without anyone questioning her about it. Last week, though, she got sent to the principal’s office and was told she had to remove it because the T-shirt from the nation’s largest gun-safety instruction organization promoted gun violence. What about the school’s drill team, Haley’s father...

    Move over Trayvon Martin. Big Labor has a new favorite group of victims of social injustice - the teaching staff of Lewis County, West Virginia. Citizens have been complaining to school board members about the “way teachers dress,” according to school board president Paul Derico. As a result, the school board unanimously passed a dress code for teachers, banning blue jeans, faded jeans and shorts. Of course the teachers union is not taking this grave injustice lying down. Union officials have threatened to sue the board. "We're disappointed in the actions of the board. We don't believe it's in the...
