T-Shirts You Cannot Wear To School...

There is a list of ten shirts that you cannot wear to schools in the USA. You can find the list over at Buzzfeed (here).

The t-shirts have sparked a deal of controversy and the kids wearing them have been asked to remove them or sent home. Many civil libertarians are up-in-arms that this breaches the first amendment rights to the freedom of speech. These are all certainly interesting arguments. However, when it comes down to it, generally the wearer of the t-shirts are children, and not all children would understand the controversy that their (or their parents) choice of clothing may bring.

I will leave it up to you as to decide whether you would send your kids to school in any of these pieces of everyday wear.
