The recent brouhaha over what the kids wear is a civil liberties issue. I am a grandmother of a student and will not tolerate dictatorships ANYWHERE. You cannot dictate what the kid wear except in "dres code" that is agreed upon by the school board. The matter of "yoga" pants is ridiculous - everyone wears them and they are fine. ALL pants today have 5% spandex, and thank God for that. There are no jeans today that are NOT "skinny" jeans, and so what. Get over it.
