I just want to say those uniforms sure have brought a world of skills to our community. Don't you think? Since we brought those uniforms in to our schools , we have had nothing but bad in our school district. Teachers having sex with students, and using school to order sex toys, Teacher aides partying with students nd then the stabbing today well well folks of Granite I sure think the dress code has done justice huh. No as a matter of fact, I had three children graduate from Granite School district and not one had anything of this nature to deal with and wore what they wanted to wear everyday. So I really think that those uniforms have done our situation in Granite Justice ha ha, All this has done is make parents spend useless money that most don't have.

Harshany was actually cleared of the adult website at school stuff. Just fyi

Regardless, the school uniforms have nothing to do with the incidences you have mentioned and I think its kinda silly for anyone to relate them. They wouldve happened in regular clothes too.
The point of the uniforms was to stop distracting wear. Honestly, if they wouldve just enforced the original dress code, it wouldve stopped it. I do have to say that since the dress code, I havent worried about people mistaking my 13 year old niece for an 18 year old.

umm i do think that the uniforms have caused a crap load of trouble myself.Kids want to wear what they want to wear to express themselves in different ways, now that the uniforms are gone what ways are they sapossed to express them selves, like the ones we have seen. The principle should have not got charged, the girl he was with was 18 so its legal tendar. i really do think uniforms should be dropped, alot of ppl in granite dont have the money as it is to buy the stupid things.And if kids are mistaken in age its not because of their clothes, its looks.
tired of the drama

I dont think the uniforms and violence are connected other than that we, as parents were told...no I am sorry PROMISED that if we went along with this uniform deal..the society of our schools would change. We would put an end to gang activity, to racial issues...these uniforms would garantee success. Well I for one am sick of it..every dang week something that WAS approved now isnt. So for one year they could wear navy, now next year they cant? Then why did they put it in the dress code to begin with? I think us parents should band together..our teachers need to teach and quit worrying about all this other crap.

I have to agree with the drama. Does anyone realize how many times the school district has made the news this year. It is a disgrace to the school , students and all of us. Some may not think that uniforms have anything to do with any of this but come on now. I have seen the teachers, aides and now students in the news and am concerned about the entire system here. Thank god I have no chidren in this district any longer. They got out before all the crazy drama and all the teachers doing kids and all the aides partying with the kids. OMG Granite District get it together will you.Think about it all is all I know to say here.

He may have been cleared but we or some of us know better. Does he or does he not have a child on the way???? Does he still work for the district? I think not. So point was made there.

Uniforms have nothing to do with "the Drama". It has everything to do with people not being taught how to act in a public education environment. Kids need to express themselves via clothing? Get real, uniforms are cheaper than Abercrombie. Express yourself with creative writing, art, proper speech, public service,etc. Harshany? What does he have to do with this? He quit end of his relevance.

it is simple...

teenagers + raging hormones = heat of passion

ok...

some girl is the object of affection of not one, but two teenage boys...

be glad there was not any more people involved and the scenario did not get worse, it easily could have been WAY worse...

something similar happened where i went to school...

instead the girl was holding her infant with her new boyfriend at her home and the original boyfriend showed up with a rifle and shot the new boyfriend in the nuts and shot the girl in the neck, killing her...

now, mike strader is in prison for life...

this garbage goes on everywhere...

and we did not have a uniform dress code where i went to school, so those theories are BS as well...

it is just what happens these days from time to time in our society...

No one is stupid enough to say what you just said!!! LMAO!
Since when do "looks" not have anything to do with clothes?

Kids ARE thought to be older because of their clothes, makeup, hair... you know, their LOOK! lol

This is why that a few months after my daughter was born, i moved out of that corrupt ridiculous state of Illinois. Anyway, I want to comment about the clothes that our teenagers are wearing. A 13 year old can dress to look like a 13 year old, or dress like a slut and look 18 or 19. The problem is not with the kids but with the parents, allowing their child to dress like a hooker. Parents have done a poor job explaining to their kids what modesty is. Of course we all know that teenage girls, much like their male counterparts, have sexual urges, and dressing a certain way to attract attention is a part of it. Parents nee dto step up, thats the bottom line.

It's not just the parents it's the behaviors of everyone. It takes a community to properly raise children, that's why it's called a community.

For instance everyone got on here to tell a story but noone has mentioned if the boys are ok. So...Are these boys ok?
really cares

According to news five thus far the boy is recouping in stable condition. The other was charged today. Now, instead of just punishing the kid maybe the authority in charge will find a way to teach him how to maintain self control so he doesn't face the punishment that's coming his way only to not learn any better. We don't want him to make the same mistake. If we don't learn any better then we don't do any better. We are all teachers by example.

Our education depends on what is taught in our community. For instance, my son shares many of my personality charachteristics, including timidness and emotional intelligence, and if not for the assistance of the Earlychild Hood Education Program it would've been a lot harder to get him to emerge from his shell all on my own. This is an example how of the behaviors of everyone in the community influence the behaviors of everyone else. It's not just learning how to get along with others, it's also learning how to accept one for oneself as well as the importance of maintaing self control. If many of us as adults don't know any better ourselves, then what kind of example our we setting for the children that observe our behaviors. I may not have a degree in teaching or get paid to teach but it doesn't mean I'm not a teacher.

Glad to make you laugh "not in GC" because I'd rather uplift people or help if I can then to watch them be crushed and their lives left in ruin, especially if it's true that a single voice can make a positive difference. I'd much rather you smile than cry.
