ACLU Challange uniforms in public school R.I.

PROVIDENCE - The state commissioner of education's office is poised to set a hearing sometime within the next month to determine whether the Woonsocket Education Department has violated the constitution with its new uniform policy.

Attorneys from the R.I. American Civil Liberties Union and the Education Department met at a preliminary hearing last week at the Rhode Island Department of Elementary and Secondary Education headquarters in Providence. The hearing was set shortly after attorney John Dineen, representing the ACLU, filed a formal complaint on behalf of four Woonsocket parents fighting the implementation of uniforms, part of the department's School Readiness Policy this year.

Dineen said he firmly believes he can win the appeal before the ACLU delves into the issue of how the statute allowing implementation is unconstitutional.

Dineen told the commissioner's hearing off

    • Don't forget their Fuck Bush and gansta t-shirts, their below the butt pants and their ghetto walk.

      Folks, can't we move towards a more progressive and liberal society where kids do what they want, wear what they want, say what they want? (sarcasm)

  • A little too late to have uniforms. Parents already bought the kids regular clothes for school.

  • ACLU=Commie organization. You think this is what Kruschev meant when he said, we will destroy you from within?

    ACLO could you sue the government for promoting the ground zero mosque?
    Could you sue the government for not sealing our borders and allowing illegal immigrants to continue to commit crimes in my country at my direct expense and direct peril?
    Could you sue the government for discriminating against me in reference to the use of affirmative action?
    Could you sue the government over the u More..

  • BTW, school uniforms are a great idea. We wonder why we're becoming a ME first society. Promotion of individualism should be done at home with younger children. Not in grade or high school. IMO.

  • Our education system is a perfect example of how the government would treat adults, if it had the authority.

    Think about that.
