    at least it was only one teacher, who is not being supported by the administration.

    maybe "common sense" will prevail after all.

    I would expect no less from that state though.
    Just sad.

    I was expecting the shirt to have something at least slightly offensive.

    But nope, just a couple of crossed rifles and MARINES.

    What the hell do people think the Marines do, host tea parties? They are instruments of death and destruction and I hate when things like this shirt get scapegoated and people use doublethink to mask their own insecurities.

    Same with the French Foreign Legionaire in Mali or wherever the French are intervening, who had the skull mask on and it was seen as offensive. Do people think that the Legion has been dispatched to Africa and not intending harm on their adversaries? If his commanding officer reprimands him for being out of regulation gear ok. But to placate some wussie, I think not.

    Crazy, kid should have said no if he's worn it before multiple times before without a problem.
    You gain strength, courage, and confidence by every experience in which you really stop to look fear in the face. You are able to say to yourself, "I have lived through this horror. I can take the next thing that comes along." . . . You must do the thing you think you cannot do. Eleanor Roosevelt

    And to think, the Marines have defended their right to be stupid for over 200 years.

    Since the "administrators" were not consulted, who threatened the suspension?? Sounds like a teacher overstepped her authority and owes this young man a public apology.

    That teacher needs to be reminded that the military is responsible for his or her right to teach and being able to speak english.

    Well, I probably have a different take on this issue. Obviously, the Marines T-shirt is not a problem in and of it self, but it then opens the door for other symbols that might not be well-accepted. If you allow one, then you better be prepared to allow them all.,,and people/students WILL remember who was allowed to do what. Believe me, some students will wear items JUST to get attention or cause a stir. Simplicity with the dress code is the easiest to enforce.

    Many of the schools in this rural area of FL have not allowed any symbols on shirts at all, no alcohol symbols, no weapons symbols, no gang symbols, nor other symbols that could cause a disruption to the learning environment...no KKK symbols, no sexual in nature symbols, no foul language or 'work-arounds' (just like on this forum) i.e., "Bucked Up", a T-shirt with this wording and a picture of a nice buck, was not allowed.
    People would be very surprised how quickly disruptions over clothing can occur among both students and parents. Not allowing such apparel seemed to have kept disruptions to a minimum.

    That's my 'experienced back' $.02

    It is a nice feeling to be retired from all of this garbage' (french pronunciation).

    But if burqa's are worn into that school I'm sure it is a non-issue.

    Apparently, this was not a teacher... It was an "indoctrinator"

    You will find them in school districts all around the country.

    Perhaps the teacher will be "re-educated" and moved to a more supportive environment.

    Probably not the marine wording but the picture of the assault rifles that got the teacher all fired up....heck we have marine ROTC classes in our schools....
    The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.

    When it comes to dress code for schools I'm more worried about what it doesn't cover up than what's on it.

    I know I'm being the little old hen who can't mind her own business. But it's so short it can't cover much of anything or his belt line is below his A** rather than above it.

    It wasn't too long ago that they tried to suspend a young boy because he had a picture of his uncle in uniform holding his weapon.

    Too much B*** S*** anymore.

    The teacher should have to wear a USMC tee shirt for a week as part of the apology. Semper Fi.
