Ok .... I agree with the parents that they should continue allowing Maroon and Green Polo's but even if they want White Polo's Exclusively , it isn't the end of the world.

I see too many parents complaining about the financial burden , just stop buying your kids cell phones , Expensive video games ,high priced Gym Shoes and all that other crap that doesn't help their education.

"Two-thirds of students at Morton East and nearly half the students at Morton West receive free or reduced lunches figures the district said are indicative of the number of students who would require financial help in purchasing the uniforms"

Times really have changed .......... Hard to believe so many kids are getting free lunches, sounds like we have alot of people milking the system and this is being paid by Berwyn Tax Dollars.

I bet half of those getting a free lunch can afford it ........ and if you can't just brown bag it .... as in Tortilla w/ Huevos and Chorizo , which by the way tastes pretty damn good.

Most definitely! I agree with this change! Parents say that they cannot afford anything but there kids have cell phones, bling bling, nicer cars, PSP's, MP-3's,$120 dollar shoes etc. That is probably the first thing they ask for before registering, for free lunch, fee waivers for everything. I just hope that these uniforms are not free.

Also, with so many cars being impounded at $500 a ticket, these kids will need to walk [great exercise] or take the bus.

Oh and lets not forget the Puerto Ricans .... they've been getting handouts since 1902 .

Rico ... to attack the largest immigrant group is just too easy.

I have nothing against Boriquas ... just sending Rico a reality check .... he should think before talkin crap about Mexicans , same goes to all other Hispanics who think they're better.

So now he's getting offended when they start talking about Puerto Ricans. You guys are far worse than Mexicans in getting government hand outs.

On the North Side a 17 year old got killed by a fellow officer and he was a Pork Chop, Last name Colon, he probably deserved it since like freedom said they are worst than anyone else.

As true as Mexicans being half Indian , although I bet there are exceptions to that rule in most of Latin America.

Immigration continued to Cuba , Puerto Rico , and Mexico well into the 20th century so there are still many probabilities of having European ancestry also , in fact Cuba had 100,000 Chinese immigrants which made up roughly 1% of the population at one time.

Funny thing is that Luis Miguel was born in Puerto Rico and Considers himself Mexican ......

I Wonder Why ?
...... oh and before someone says thst his parents are Mex , let me inform you that his dad was born in Spain and his mother in Italy.

Thank you for your input, hopefully Rico reads it and lets it sink in. I believe pointing a gun at an Officer is far more worst than a drive-by Rico.

So pointing a gun at an officer is worse than a innocent kid getting killed cause the gang-banger missed his target. O.k., we are back to normal with Aztek I see.

It's the parents fault that he was outside with no supervision. I see the little kids all of the time by themselves with no adult. If he/she gets shot it's the parents fault, where were they? In our society we can get killed by anything, a car, falling debris, a bullet, knife, etc. The only one to blame is the parents, I never allow my kids outside without my presence.
