At my kid's public school there are two 10-11yr. olds that continually come to school in Obama t-shirts....I am a McCain supporter and would never consider sending my kid to school in a t-shirt showing that support....where is the level of appropriateness in regards to us as parents and our kids....I hardly believe ANY 10-11yr. old has full knowledge of all the issues in this election and should the schools allow this type of campaigning by innocent kids?Answer Question

First of all, I teach 6th grade so I know quite alot about kids this age and their political views. I strongly disagree about them being uninformed. Some of my students know more about how the candidates stand on some issues than many adults I know. I have students who strongly support Obama with good reasons to back up their stance.
Second, as an Obama supporter, I have to say I do agree with you. Teachers and other staff are not permittted to wear any campign apparel at school. The same rule should be applied to students. Especially because this election is so volatile. Kids shouldn't wear anything to school that is disruptive. I have to tread lightly every day as my students get into political discussions. If the kids wearing the T-Shirts is causing a disruption they should be asked to change them.

Next question overall
Do you think that bring the layaway plan back into our stores is a good idea?
