    Why shouldn't they be? It's not as if the school is endorsing the religion. I would think this would be protected by the first amendment.

    If it isn't private or a specific religious school, then it shouldn't be a problem.

    It IS allowed. There are NO laws to prevent it but most people don't know their rights. CLA will defend their right to do so.......FREE of Charge ! It has been challenged many times and won !

    Religious freedom is one of the things this country was founded on.

    Yes, it is not the schools business about what religion or beliefs our children have. This should not even be a topic in our schools, but sadly it is .

    I just would not wear the wrong piece of religious jewelry to the wrong school. You might start conflict.

    I don't think parents should be allowed to teach their children about religion until their brains are a little less soft... say around 18. That would take care of this whole religion thing in a generation or two rather than the 4 to 6 that it's going to take at present.

    Why not? They aren't forcing anyone else to do it. Unless the item was a weapon, then let them wear it.

    But if theft is the concern then no or at least the parents should be warned of the concerns and have to use their own discretion.

    I don't see how it can be harmful, except for maybe getting teased. But if the kid is willing to put up with people who might tease then I see nothing wrong with it.

    sure why not? they believe in some form of god hell even if they didn't its their form of expression, as long as they don't shove it down my throat I really don't see a problem.

    With the caveat that as long as it isn't so large or garish that it's distracting. I wear an angel necklace my mother gave me for Mother's Day. I've had kids very proudly show me a crucifix which was given to them.

    They had just better be prepared to defend their faith and not use them in an elitist manor.

    Just so the schools realize that they can't pick and choose which religious symbols are allowed. All or none at all.

    Yes! As long as it isn't causing distraction to the other students. Some people like to wear large jewelry. They can sometimes reflect and slightly blind others.. Lol!-lol!

    If it is good for one religion, it is good for all religions. Conversly, if it is bad for one, then it is bad for all religions. Now that is simple as I can make it, just so the most politically correct individual can understand.
