    Pennsylvania School Sued for Banning 'Boobies' Bracelets - FoxNews.com

    Schools are permitted to enforce dress codes as they see fit. It amazes me what people feel are the most pressing issues in education today. :cuckoo:

    Definitely silly. You can understand the message on the bracelet immediately. It is a cute strategy to focus attention on breast cancer.

    But is a ban worthy of a lawsuit? Schools make judgment calls every day. Some people may disagree. Oh well. Should administrators have to waste valuable time giving depositions on such silliness? Should taxpayer dollars be wasted on lawyers fighting the ACLU?

    While I do understand where you are coming from....

    It seems to me that the school board or Admin of the school should probably NOT HAVE A BAN on bracelets in the first place...I mean, what the heck?

    Why in the world would there be a ban on a bracelet such as this?

    I do think suing is going overboard and a waste of money, but 10-1 the parents of all children in the school, would probably NOT object to anyone supporting the cause of breast cancer awareness or wearing these bracelets.

    Why did the school feel the need to be overbearing in this manner for something like this?

    Being childless, maybe I am missing something?
