No longer allowed to wear Air Force clothing

AUBREY (CBS11) – From the flag outside their Providence Village home to the photos inside, the Rolens are a proud military family.
Eleven-year-old twins Kaidence and Abigail were even born on an Air Force base.
So the new fall jackets they bought to wear to Aubrey Middle School shouldn’t be a surprise.
“The Air Force ones they picked out — we might’ve nudged them a little bit,” says Phil Rolen, their father.
But the girls didn’t expect the reaction they got from teachers once they stepped into their classrooms.
“She yelled at me and said that’s out of the dress code and that she would get me in trouble if I wore something out of dress code,” says Kaidence.
“It’s political correctness run amok,” says their father.
He is a disabled Iraq War veteran who immediately called the principal and was told the Air Force logo was fine, just too large for the district’s strict dress code.
“The district has a blanket policy doesn’t allow administrators to make commonsense exceptions to rules that I think most Texans would agree are absolutely superfluous,” says Rolen.
The school district told CBS 11 News in a statement that “Aubrey ISD has a student dress code to follow, just as our military personnel are expected to wear uniforms.”
The Rolens say the dress code policy needs to change, not their daughters attire.
“We’ve certainly fought bigger fights in life,” says Rolen.

lol is there a news site that specializes in patriotic clothing ban stories?

 

sounds like these guys dont think the rules apply to their kids if it is truly against dress code

I actually have no problems with this. The logo is too large not "scary" or any of the other shit schools complain about.

This is probably the first instance of this I can agree with. Phone Post 3.0

What the hell does this have to do with political correctness?

The logo is allowed but too big according to the dress code. Why is this even a news story?

It's a crappy thing to make a point on both sides. The school has a stupid dress code but if you want to go there you have to follow the code. Those girls probably have other jackets they could wear to school. Wear those and when you come home and are out wear the other jacket. School is a place to learn and sometimes stupid rules need to be enforced. Phone Post 3.0

Back in my day jacked went into locker before 1st class and couldn't come out until after last class. Now these babies need to cuddle with their favorite jackets all day.... political correctness run amock indeed.

For when I put my damn glasses on......fuck, I can't see shit! Phone Post 3.0

Par for the course with the OP. Phone Post 3.0

This is a public school with that strict of a dress code?

It is becoming increasingly common. I work in a public high school and the kids aren't allowed to have a logo on their shirts larger than a quarter.

No longer allowed to wear Air Force clothing *

If nothing else I have to commend DDS for including the source of an article for once.

Dress codes are dress codes. It's a non story. Phone Post 3.0

But what is the point of that? Ex. How can having "NIKE" or Star Wars or superhero symbols be offensive?

Fuck if I know, I just teach. I don't write the dress codes.

 

I would assume it isn't a matter of offense, but of uniformity. A lot of polo shirts have small logos embroidered on the breast, like a little polo horse or a lacoste alligator. Our kids aren't allowed to wear shirts with designs on them (they have to be black or white collared shirts... either button ups or polo) so I assume by making a size restriction for logos it differentiates what consitutes a logo and a design.

i wore a uniform my entire schooling from pre k through high school

 

it's always funny to see how public school kids react to any sort of dress code
