    Right on. Officials have just relaxed the atmosphere a bit. High School is as much a social environment as it is a learning environment, like it or not. Removing harmless, pointless regulations boosts morale for the kids. Freedom of expressing themselves is important to them, and while not all means of doing so is always okay, little things like these are completely harmless. They have the rest of their lives to have to cover up their ink, keep their hair conservative, and get rid of the damn beard. They'll grow up and out of it, just like we all did. Young adults these days are held to a much higher educational standard than most of the older folks here were. There's talk below that article of "back in my day" or "if I was the superintendent it would be like the 60's and 70's"....well, I'll be willing to bet back in the 60's and 70's (and I mean no offense to any of my elders here), calculus and trig weren't the standard classes for majority of the student body like they are today were they? Maybe we should have kept everything the same hm? Say what you want about the youth, but the kids work hard. They earn it. Things are done differently now, like it or not. I'd rather have this than have my kid sent home and be out of the classroom for the day because he finally grew out his peach fuzz and wanted to wear it out. Choose your battles. Let the school teach the books. I'll take care of values, morals, and good discipline.

    "It will be policed o a case-by-case basis. Tattoos can't have gang signs, facial hair must be neat and clean and no excessive body piercings will be allowed."

    -- Call me old school but what's the point of teaching these youngsters discipline if they're allowed to do whatever they want at such a young age and then wonder where things went wrong when they screw up? Isn't 18 the legal age for tattoos? Be on the lookout for more school fights involving kids displaying sweetheart tats.
