We're a group of parents struggling to oppose mandatory uniforms in our
otherwise excellent local public schools. We hope to provide some
on-line help (such as links) to others in the
same struggle, as well as hear from others who have had to fight this
Sadly, we were left with no choice but to take our school board to court to resolve this issue...
If you believe, as we do, that having a governing body mandate how citizens
should dress is just flat wrong, then read on, or
send us your thoughts.
Read the recent Supreme Court ruling about parental rights RE: visitation.
Has your Texas ISD tried the weasel-tactic of specifying a "Standard Mode of Dress" or "Standardized Dress Code" to avoid allowing exemptions as required by the TX law enabling mandatory school uniforms? If so, read this startling bit of common sense from the T.E.A. and make sure your ISD sees it too!
Does your Texas ISD board of trustees or administration have trouble grasping what "bona fide" means? Ours did, despite several recitations of various dictionaries, but now the TX State Commissioner of Education has cleared the fog in this ruling granting a uniform opt-out denied by FISD trustees - it's worth reading!
"What can i do to help?" First, don't shy away from stating
your concerns and/or beliefs when the subject comes up in conversation.
To avoid that "glazed-over look" from your
audience, avoid mentioning the obvious parallels to communist rule,
or any relation to Nazi activities.
Second, contact your congress-critter! Since state laws allow these policies, they could be a place to modify the enabling or exemption criteria.
And, if you want to help financially, make a tax-deductible donation to the A.C.L.U., and include a note that you want some or all of the donation to help pay for the Forney uniform lawsuit.
How about some notable quotes from famous,
deceased, weird, wise or otherwise influential folks?
Or maybe you prefer more current generally-related
quips & quotes
from magazines, newspapers, etc.?
Are you working on a school report, or involved in a
school uniform debate? You might find a little help on our
debating points page.
Here are some meager tips on
filing a complaint with the
Commissioner of Education.
Please be patient with us as we slowly build up this site - we are still trying to have the mandatory uniform policy overturned, and it is a very time-consuming task...
