As I suspected..

It's definitely a policy that one would reasonably believe would disproportionately affect blacks.

agreed. I wish the public schools would adopt this. anymore public schools become a fashion show and turns into bullying. Children are there to learn not show off. Too many school officials and liberals always cry that "Children should be allowed to express themselves". Well they can, after school.

Everyone should be entitled to wear their hair the way they like. On the flip side, a grown man with cornrows looks pathetic.

If you think this makes me a hypocrite, I guess it makes you a liar for making a FALSE accusation.
I guess the truth hurts.

No braids? I'm pretty sure I see braids in the student photos on the school's website. Am I missing something?

I also went to a Catholic school.

In my humble opinion, Love it or hate it, different style of clothing, hair style, etc are going to be a part of modern life. May as well learn to deal with it as soon as possible instead of singling it out as a bad demon that needs to be killed to normal people who wouldn't make much of a fuss about it otherwise.

For your information, uniforms do not make this (bullying issue) go away.

While uniforms may seem like they would do away with bullying based on what you are wearing, all uniforms do is make kids focus on smaller things to make fun of others for. I have been bullied by bigger girls, once or twice, I learned to defend myself. That (self defense, fighting back) solved the problem.

By the way, I also learned how to work around skirt rule quickly. =)

I agree
the Catholics used to say, if you dress like little ladies and gentlemen, you'll act like ladies and gentlemen and I agree....
I wish all the schools would actually demand uniforms...that way there would be no room to bully b/c someone can't afford clothes...
