    There's got to be a amendmant against this. But I remember in government that schools are allowed to implement certain rules because it's like a private rules kind of deal? I forget, where is Aero?

    I believe it has to do with schools having what amounts to parental authority when the student is on school grounds during school hours. Don't quote me on this though.

    Similarly, a few years ago, schools (I think they were local, even) prohibited eyebrow piercings because they were distracting.

    There's a really easy solution to this. Just make up a few shirts that associate shaved eyebrows with drug usage and put the rumor out there that people with shaved eyebrows are the ones you go to to get pot.

    Soulja Boy has this much influence on kids? At the rate that America is getting stupider, I fear for my future kids.

    Well as long as you realize you need to counter stupidity yourself, rather than leave it to the schools...

    I'd say they can't force a kid to shave his eyebrows, but they can refuse to let him into the building, just like they can't force you to submit to searches of your backpack upon entering the building, but they can refuse you entrance if you decline.

    Re: School tells kids to shave their eyebrows

    pretty lame way of the school to press their beliefs. Should this go to court, like the controversial tshirt cases that have come up in the past, this would (imo) get thrown out and protected via the 1st amendment rights.

    It's not illegal to belong to a gang, even if the gang itself is known to engage in criminal activity. I also found the distraction policy arbitrary and reeking of personal opinion.

    Can they really say some person minding their own business with a "13" shaved into their eyebrow is any more distracting then the emo kid with the foot high mohawk , pink lipstick, fock the world t-shirt and "insert cliche angst tatoo" . They have got to be a little more consistent in enforcing or not enforcing "distraction dress". A symbol or slogan is not a distraction just because you or someone disagrees with it. A distraction is action taken that is disruptive.

    There is all kinds of "wacky" dressed people, and I'm ok with that. Come to school to learn and do your job. Who cares how someone dresses providing they are clean and covered.


    This reminds me of the town in florida that wanted to charge people with baggy pants that showed underwear and fine them, yet at the same time the same town has a large nudist population and it's not illegal to walk around in just boxers.

    Pfft, some people have way too much time on their hands.

    Soulja Boy? Ergh, I think that eyebrow thing is a little older than whoever this flash in the pan is.

    If I were one of those kids I'd shave off my eyebrows and get that area tattooed.

    Uh...This is some of the worst retarded crap I ever read. Even tho I would never shave anything into my eyebrows, if anyone came and told me to shave of my eyebrows because of some crap, there would seriously be some trouble. The world has become f***ing crazy.

    Children do not get to set the dress code at school. Sorry, children.

    AFAIK in Canada it's illegal to belong to a criminal organization.
    And I think that's a good thing.

    Who said that was allowed? Seems to me you're resorting to making up facts to prove your point.

    Sweet. I'm going to go get me a KKK outfit and a Nazi uniform.
