I stopped over from Dirt and Lace Designs! I really appreciate your story--very inspiring! I scrolled through many pages! I relate to you in many ways--I've been a 5th grade teacher & my degree is in teaching--but I'm no longer teaching...too much stress for me! :) My husband is also in the ministry here in Louisville! Fun for me to stop by your blog! Hope you don't mind me adding you to my google reader & following! Nice to 'meet' you!
Holy moly!! I see the dress code there is pretty lenient, huh? Nearly all CPS schools wear uniforms, thankfully, so we can avoid this exact thing. However, the few that don't (like where my son went to grade school) had a very strict code for what is appropriate. That kid would have been sent home in a hot second for wearing that!!!!
Unreal...back in the day (about 15 years ago when I was in HS), there was a no tolerance policy. You had two choice - you were forced to wear your shirt inside-out the rest of the day and suffer the ensuing embarrassment or you had to wear a shirt from the Lost & Found. And that was HIGH SCHOOL. Shirts with such a message never found their way into the earlier grades. This world is so depraved, and sadly, people think it's "funny".
I don't understand what is going on in the mind of a parent who 1. buys a child a shirt like thator (if they didn't buy it) 2.allowed them to leave the house wearing it. (simply unbelievable).I am a teacher too and am often amazed at the (lack of) parenting skills that exist in society now. I had one wee guy who use to walk into class on a regular basis eating a chocolate bar and drinking a can of coka cola, and his mother actually gave this junk to him as breakfast. (felt like saying "can you please bring him back at mid-day when the sugar high has worn off).
