Education: New Policy on Uniforms

October 20, 1994

The Long Beach Unified School District instituted a districtwide brainwashing tactic in elementary schools a few days ago. Under the guise of positive reinforcement, all children wearing The Correct Uniform were given ice cream; nonconformists were conspicuously ignored.

Shame on the teachers who did not protect the non-uniformed children from this demeaning attack. "I was just following orders" is a shallow excuse.

Let's escalate this to its logical conclusion: Politically incorrect and nonconformist children must wear armbands. It's been done before.
