and that is somehow my fault? if people want this to be a capitalistic society they have to stop thinking that everyone cares about them...

I never said this was your fault. Read it again. I said, in a perfect world your idea would be great, but as we know, this is not a perfect world and as such, certain things work out differently that we think they should. Because of that, schools have to take on more roles than just information centers.

Where did you get "that is somehow my fault?" No one blamed you for anything. But, you are the one who said it's up to the parents to handle their end. I just said that they aren't doing it, for the most part.

Also, if we stop thinking anyone cares about us, we may as well throw decency and common sense out the window and do whatever we want, because "who cares?" Right?

i see the whole thing as a freedom of expression issue. in 6th-9th grade we had required school uniforms (damn North Carolina...trying to tell everyone that gang violence starts in middle school, and forgetting the majority of the high schools...) and i've been to schools with really lax dress codes, so ive been on both sides. the thing is, the administration thinks they know whats best for the students, but let me tell you this: i've seen just as many fights in a school where uniforms were required as ive seen in schools that didnt enforce the dress code. goths, "gangstas," punks, preps, nerds, you name it, i've gone too school with them and probably befriended most of them. at the school i got to now, there have been maybe 2-3 actual fights in the 2 years ive been there. the only example that i can think of when appearance would be the main cause of a fight would be when it involved gang colors. if people want to change their appearance, they should be able to, they have that option in the "real world," which is supposedly what high school is supposed to prepare us for anyway, right?

thats all ive got to say for now...

Anyone who says "schools aren't made to teach modesty" obviously lives under a rock. Public school has to conform to standards that allow kids to learn..and not have distractions such as girls dressing in provocative clothing among other things. If so much as one kid is distracted by gauging or grillz then they have to get rid of them. I for one see no reason why you'd want either one other than to look different than every one else and to be a rebel because you know older people don't approve of them. For that reason, I also believe that adults and authority figures should have the right to prevent you from doing this. I see nothing wrong with a school banning something that they deem against their rules. If you don't like that, find a different school. But I can assure you if you think public school is bad, try private school. You show up to a private school with abunch of junk on your body and I promise you a stern warning isn't all you would get.

Then there's the racial matter..I don't care who you are or where you're from, there's always going to be certain people who dress certain ways and do certain things..and you can't NOT stereotype them..

As far as spankings, I'm a strong supporter of them. If I hadn't been spanked as a child I can tell you for sure I'd probably be alot different. When a young child does something wrong he needs to remember what the reprecussions for doing that certain thing were. If he did something that he had repeatedly been asked not to do, and he got a spanking, I guarantee he'll remember that spanking and not do it again..but if the parent just yells, of course he's going to do it again..

It's really hard to talk with a grill in your mouth anyway.

Sidenote: What's with everybody typing page long posts lately? I feel like I'm reading something Claus wrote .
