One suspects the old expression "You can always tell a Harvard man, you just can't tell him much" applies to high school kids (and their parents) with tattoos. Magnet school for tats anyone?

Wow. How great for Texas. Now if they would allow students to develop independent thinking skills, we'd really be making progress. Considering the Texas textbook fiasco, I have no hope for the 100's of thousands of students who will "graduate" from the Lone Star state with a sub-par education and ill-prepared to function in the real work where fact, science and truth exist.

A dress code is a reasonable thing. But for heaven's sake, tattoos and piercings aren't really distracting anyone. If the school's enforce the tattoo guidelines that the article mentions, there should be no problem. Tattoos are so commonplace now, I'm really surprised at some of the reactionary comments on here. I see lots of tattoos every single day, oh, and I'm a teacher :)

More liberals dragging all of us to the abyss. I think we need to start handing out clean needles as well. At least they own't get aids when they are shooting heroin.

Hey, you have to nurture the hoodlums and dregs of society too. Way to encourage, oh hallowed annals of the DOE.

Tats and colors, are difficult for many districts to deal with, because of the possibility of violence that results, but it is good to see common sense, compassion and freedom of expression winning today.

Oh, seeing that this is Texas we're talking about, I naturally assumed that it would only be OK to wear tats and jewelry with images of Jesus.

There is nothing wrong with establishing a dress code and rules. However, Texas education system cares more about the length of a boy's hair or if he shaved that morning before he showed up at school than it does about actually teaching.

So...parent's want the school to stop their kids from having tattoos and they are afraid they are losing THEIR CONTROL of their kids? You're still the parent, you still control whether or not your kid get's a tat before they are 18. Teachers are not parents and shouldn't be expected to act like them. Make your own kid your own responsibility and leave mine the heck alone.

Yet they still won't allow a young man to have a mustache. They're a bunch of backwards hypocrits.

"...allowing seventh through 12th-grade males to sport facial hair, earrings and hair past their shoulders, and both genders to display visible tattoos,"

Where do you grow a mustache that it isn't considered facial hair.

Now, I do concur with the sentiment. Texas cares more about hair than education and that yanks me off. It also explains why their education system is at the bottom nationwide.

Youth have to understand that the school is to learn how to better their life and culture not to be garbage.

And Texas needs to learn that hair isn't as important as education. They spend more time being concerned about hair length and facial hair than they do teaching.

Baggy pants down to the ankles and plenty of cleavage should be welcome too. After all, it's just an education for the rest of your lives.....lol.

Not in Texas. They care more about shaving than they do educating. They actually sent a 17 yr old home for the day because he forgot to shave that morning. Nevermind that they should have focused on teaching him. It was more important to Texas that he didn't shave that morning.

Well, whada we expect from the state that thinks asprin between the knees prevents pregnany--in spite of the billion a year they spend on labor and delivery.

I understand a school imposing restrictions to what ever degree ya all, however, I believe also it is the parents who hold primary responsibility on how their children dress for school. Parents should enforce the schools dress code before their child leaves for school. Parents also need to become involved with the PTA to discuss policies and procedures of the school such as this.
