Honestly, what the fuck is wrong with the school board to even attempt such heresy? What sort of fascist school is that? How could any school district impose such a law that would ban the freedom to wear what you want (within reason)? It's unthinkable! Even in Nazi Germany the dress codes weren't that strict. This young man is a hero for fighting the good fight and finding a loophole in the rules. Luckily this sort of thing could never happen in America, since we'll never have uniforms or strict dress codes here. Discuss this boys heroics here.
1. Germany did not have any particular dress codes within a regular civilian life during Hitler's rule. They were actually quite free as long as they were not jewish/black/other things Hitler didn't like.
2. American schools had strict dresscodes up to several times.
3. I do agree that's pretty stupid, but I ask, how can a school district be fascist? Are you just throwing it out to make it more dramatic?

First they took away their guns, then they took away their knives, then they took away their airsoft/fake guns, then they took away their pornography, now they're taking away their clothes, and in a few months they're taking away their internet (the British government passed a law to allow them to monitor and censor the internet for any of their citizens).
England was always a mess, and so is yours and every other government out there. In fact the censorship-law Britain passed was a suggestion by the US, it's called ACTA (Anti-Counterfeiting Trade Agreement
A few recent links:
Do you seriously think that's freedom? I can find many many more links on stuff like that, and to be honest, US is the worst on censoring after North Korea and China. Don't think US is so much better than everyone else, they're not.
Did you know US has a large station in Scotland dedicated to sniffing phone calls, SMS, internet traffic etc. in Europe?
Also, Totalitarian is when there is one single leader, otherwise it's called Authoritarian.
