Good Lord, almost every week yet another incident where 'parents' enable their kid's bad behavior by deliberately flaunting school dress codes.

What is so darned hard about following such rules, which are clearly posted and which are legally protected.

I'm sure there will soon be protests and 'outrage' over something that should never have happened in the first place.

A Nashville father was put into a chokehold by school resource officers after he and his 16-year-old daughter refused to leave her high school. The incident, which stemmed from an argument regarding the dress code, was partially captured on video.

How was she flaunting it? The article doesn't say.

You're certainly right that it never should have happened in the first place, because calling in the police to assault parents over a dress code violation is really stupid and shouldn't happen.

Sounds like the "dress code" is actually a uniform which have no place in public schools.

This happens all the time unfortunately, it is the one consistent thing in education regardless of economic status or race. Even the best public schools have these issues at the start of school.

Ton of parents out here that would rather argue with a teacher than correct the child’s behavior. God forbid your angel act like all teens and skirt the rules. Difference is my parents addressed me for my actions not blame the school.

Regardless of your feelings on school uniforms, the school had such a policy and the student violated it. More importantly their choice of action is what caused all this trouble.

Might be because the police were not called for that. Read the article. Both father and daughter assaulted the School Resource Officer. The cops were called for that, not the dress code violation.
