    The seniors at my high school have something like that on their shirts...and our school didn`t care.

    lol...I`m really concerned though...why do people have to be so uptight these days? it seems that no one can take a joke and everything has to be serious.

    That shirt was hilarious! I give mad props to the guys that came up with that design and I wish the kids at my school had that much creativity.

    Completely inappropriate for high school students to be wearing AT SCHOOL. On their own time, whatever, but the school has a duty to promote responsible behavior. My kid wouldn`t wear that shirt period. (with me knowing about it anyway)

    They take a lot of things too seriously, and then the principles think they are defending the school from TERRIBLE things when nothing really happens. Such as a 5th grade boy who hates school is asked what would he do if he was trapped in the school forever, and he replies I would try to break out. And if I need weopons I would turn the rulers into swords and make the pencils really pointy. And then he nearly gets the police called, and nearly gets expelled. (This happened to my brother, so it IS true.) Or like right now seniors getting in trouble for wearing a shirt, which is a joke!

    It doesn`t matter whether or not you feel that the T-shirt slogan makes teenagers want to drink (would it have made YOU want to drink if you saw that as a teen?). Whether or not you think the students were dumb . . . it`s their right to free speech. The amendment says they have a right and to allow people to take that right away from THEM, gives them permission to take rights from you.

    Anyone who says `Those kids deserved that` or `They shouldn`t have said that` are completely retarded.

    And I know some of you might be parents but honestly, keeping them from seeing that t-shirt isn`t going to keep them from drinking. Like the kid said at the end: kids are going to drink or not drink regardless of the t-shirt.

    our country sucks, that school sucks, props to creater

    Uh yeah. School dress code says not to promote drugs/alcohol/sex/whatever. If you don`t like it, try homeschooling. None of these kids look like they`re financially hurting so it`s not like if they really had a problem with it, they couldn`t afford to be homeschooled. If you want the opportunity to go to school with your peers, you have to adhere to the school`s rules.

    I don`t understand why this is an issue.

    Heh, this isn`t far from me, saw it on the local news before they got suspended, still were waiting.

    I find this stupid on the news this morning a kid said that they`ve worn acutal shirts with acholol logos on them.

    And yeah, they get busted for a .?

    Ugh. >.< Give them (us teens as well) a break! I mean it`s like the adults were perfect as well. B-|

    I`m sure my class (`10) could do worse though, seriously.

    The only thing different between being a teenager today and years before is that teenagers today have the false mindset that they deserve to be disrespectful and get whatever they want. Yeah it`s just a shirt, but someone told them not to wear the shirts, yet they insisted. It`s given that you should do what authorities say or you`ll be punished. How hard is it to just accept that you can`t wear a shirt?

    Is this really preparing anyone for college? Why do high school students need such excessive shielding from real life? People wear PJs, miniskirts, and next to nothing to my classes constantly, and I`m an electrical engineering student ("severe nerd" in layman terms). Going high/drunk to class gets a chuckle at the most and is entirely forgotten about 5 minutes later. And let`s not even touch the Liberal Arts department - I`ve heard several stories of english and philosophy professors definitely smoking the ol` grass, if you know what I mean. And this in one of the top 1 business, top 9 engineering (varies depending on specific program), and top 3 architecture schools in the country. I don`t even dare ask what`s going on elsewhere. It`s just silly, and to assume people are driven to illegal actions based on... THIS bullpoo? Ugh.

    I think what`s important to look at is that the kids understood the reasoning behind the school`s decision, and the school seemed like they understood that the kids had no malicious intent.

    Yeah, as an in-joke, it`s like, "Ha ha ha, .08," but really, it`s a non-issue. This whole thing is going to blow over before too long, and nobody will even care.

    Chalk it up to kids being young and stupid. That`s the whole thing here.

    I was about to say they overreacted, but it`s understandable considering they were already warned.

    Seriously, schools in this country are gradually failing. Eventually, students won`t bother coming to school with so many restrictions.

    And yeah, schools nowadays (in USA) suck. In fact, there was an announcement on the P.A. at my school today saying that throwing water balloons will not be permitted. WTF?

    BINGO! Smartest post so far. It`s about respect. All I see here are a bunch of PUNK kids that think they are entitled to throw mtheir nose up at whom ever they want.

    You come from a generation where it was a must that you had to give respect to adults, you figured...okay, when we are adults then we get the respect. We grew up in a generation where age is just a number. You feel like you aren`t getting respect, and we feel like you are keeping us down. With that said, Generation Y is going to probably be more successful in the work force because they see themselves as commodities where if one company doesn`t like them, another we pay just as well. Sure we may sound silly, but we will get what we want.

    Respect is often a downfall. Generation Y is able to get more out of the workforce than Generation X was able to partly because generation X had more respect towards co-workers and the company. Generation Y is more selfish and wants to get more tools to work with and more opportunities. Companies dont want to hire them because of this but they are forced to and the workers get more out of the company than previous generations. The "ME" attitude is what has helped them a lot.

    I understand because your "workplace" right now is Burger King.. When you grow up and make it to the REAL workforce, you will soon see demanding from a corporation will get you a one way ticket to the unemployment office.

My gf almost got suspended just for standing up during lunch. i have a friend who was suspended for a day because the teacher thought his tic-tac was a drug. This angered me when I heard about it.

    what happened was they wore the shirts one day, and the teachers complained about them, but no restrictions were actually put on them, so when students showed up with the shirts the next day they were all suspended, even though they were given no fair warning.

    ..and people wonder why so many students drop out of school. My school was just as retarded as this place, I wouldn`t stand for it.. so I left and got my GED. Looking back on it I regret not getting an actual diploma, but I don`t regret leaving that sh*thole. Principles should encourage ethical decisions, but they shouldn`t punish a large group of people for a play on words. A person preaching that their morals are higher, and more correct is pointless, because you need only to pay attention to your own. You`ll influence more people passively.

    I am starting to doubt the argument, (looking at you DrewK) that i am inferior to older people and must respect and obey them, regardless of the logic of their commands, or their level of reciprocal respect, simply because they were born before me. Although it may be true that teenage brains are still developing, the societal subordination of young people does not seem to be a result of intelligence disparity: a brainy 17 year old would be expected to defer almost unconditionally to an idiotic adult. Rather, the science of human development seems to simply be a rationalization of teenage oppression, suspiciously similar to reasons given for the disenfranchisements of women and minorities found throughout history.
    The result of this suppression, predictably, is rebellion; manifested in ways such as risk taking, blatant disrespect, and drug-use, all which paradoxically validate the controls put on teenagers in the minds of adults.

    `10 sounds kinda cool if you say "class of twenty-ten".

    But seriously, schools are so uptight. My sisters friend just got suspended. He`s Asian, and he was joking around with this other kid about how he was going to go kamikaze on the school because he got a detention for chewing gum. ahahaha. Three day suspension for saying it.

    This is typical of the Livonia, Michigan school system. I went to a rival school of Stevenson and the same s#!* went on 10 years ago. I may be one the `older crew` here but I know lame and uptight when I see it. DAINTY makes some valid points about teenagers drinking, but promoting it(if .08 really is promoting) isn`t against the law.

    I was suspended for dying my hair `cuz my life may have been in dangr from gangs. At the time, there was one legit `gang` member in our Livonia school, and he was white and from the `burbs. So I redyed my hair the same color as the lunch lady, which was purple. Got called into the office again and brought her with me. `Nuff said. Perhaps the L-Town school system should concentrate on their alcoholic teachers, the art teacher who smokes pot, the touchy-feely gym freak and the football coach whose shorts were way too tight. Screw Livonia Public Schools.

    The fact is teens will drink underage anyway. I have always thought that 21 was a bit old to start drinking, in fact one of the highest levels in the world. I can see how the school has an issue with the shirts, I work for a school , as a teacher , of course it is a kindergarten so I never face these issues, but many schools now face a higher point saying treat school as you would a full time job. Dress in the right clothes, be on time etc. Still such a large number of students got in trouble for such a thing is a bit odd, I mean just tell them not to wear the shirt at school anymore.

    Agreed.

    Wow, that school is retarded and strict, just like mine! My freshmen year, we were going to make shirts saying, "The jokes are old but we`re still fresh" but the school said fresh could be taken sexually or some other bull. They did the same thing to us sophmore year, shooting down an awesome t-shirt idea, so our junior shirt simply stated "Juniors: because everything else was `inappropriate`" Luckily no one was ever suspended over a class t-shirt.

    i agreed with the students until she said they were warned in writing. At that point if you still want to break the rules, you have to accept the consequences. If any students didn`t know about the warning, then they should not be punished as harshly

    After sifting through comments and finally understanding how it was relevant to drinking (was uber confused for a moment there), I ask how will that promote alocholism? It`s no different than advertising beer on TV, but they don`t make a fuss out of that do they.

    thats the thing, they weren`t told they were gunna be suspended. they just said "its disrepectful to "

    nowhere did it say "you`re gunna get suspended LOL"

    and at any rate, it`s still highly overreacting

    I`m so glad I live in England. Not only that, but in a little countryside town in the North East

    We get away with everything, I`ve been out in the local pubs since I turned 17, now I`m 18 and am quite bored with alcohol to be honest, I still go out to the local every saturday but it`s more of a social thing

    I don`t know if I could cope if it was 21 - we would have nowhere to hang out

    At 18 you`re mature enough to be able to handle whether you drink or not

    And no wonder there are so many underage drinkers in America, they have this big thing on alcohol like its so bad

    Its always been around me here in good old yorkshire

    And also, whats with the school? So uptight

    I`m in my last year of sixth form, going to uni in september, we all get on with the teachers and wear whatever we like. we gave my english teacher a bottle of jack daniels for a leaving present, and we went on a school trip to do an essay and we all just got wasted

    England is great. Where i live anyway.

    that`s funny! i can`t wait to see people get suspended for wearing the wrong color socks/shoes now.
    and who really cares about drinking age? it should be that if you can go out and protect your coun try (18) you should be able to drink-but no...if a state lowers its drinking age, then the gov`t will take away the $$ they`re giving the state for highway/transportation "repairs" etc.

    "
    I understand because your "workplace" right now is Burger King.. When you grow up and make it to the REAL workforce, you will soon see demanding from a corporation will get you a one way ticket to the unemployment office."
    Excuse me? What you think the kids that go to college are any more respectful than others? There`s a lot of articles going around about how today`s college graduates entering the workforce are in fact more laidback, chill, etc.

    You try and head a company and turn down an electrical engineer or something. You don`t have a choice but to hire us because the demand is insanely high and only growing over the next decade. If a company doesn`t give me full benefits, vacation time, and at least average starting pay ($65K) then I`ll simply take my skills to europe, which is making great exceptions in immigration just to allow more foreign engineers to enter the workforce as easy as possible.
    The next generation will be much worse, but hopefull

    This is why i like England so much, a minimum age of 18, and the law is pretty lax about it, in fact the minimum drinking age is 5, you just cant buy it till your 18, not that that stops most, (btw, i`ve never met a parent who gave their 5 year old alcohol)

    Dainty: "I look down on people under the age of 21 who drink."

    What about countries that have a lower legal drinking age?
    And also,
    "And age has nothing to do with being mature. Nothing whatsoever. It`s the individual them self." - then why did you say that you look down on those people?

    They deserved it. You wear something that promotes/makes light of underage drinking, especially after you were warned not to, you should get busted. Now, did they deserve to have to earn the right to go to prom AND walk the stage at graduation? No. But they deserved at least to be suspended. Idiots.

    The kid who designed the class shirt for the grade above mine when I was in high school made an inappropriate shirt, but the advisor caught it before the shirts were printed up. It was a simple design on the front of the shirt on the left breast, and all it said was
    Seniors
    2003
    However, the `I` was positioned directly over the 00`s and made to look like a penis.
