On this vote they Yays are 27%, the Nays are 73%. The bill is not passed.

CORRECTION. The Yays shall be taken as yeas instead due to the recent change in the term for a vote in the affirmative in the Virtual Congress.

Half of it yes, and half no. Since I can't say yes to all of it, I must say no.

nay for sure, the first 4 are wildly irresponsible policies. and the last one should only apply in criminal cases where it already does. the second to last one is fine if it somehow don't already a right

No!
12 year olds will fight against braces or taking medicine, they don't always know what's best for them. Also if the kid is in the principles office for bullying they get a lawyer! I'm not paying for a 12 year old to get a lawyer!

They have the right to an attorney. They don't automatically get one.

Why do they need an attorney?

A 12 year old doesn't need one. A 17 year old maybe, depending on several variables such as was there a crime, drugs, etc. And even then, they should pay for it. Would a student ever use an attorney? Probably not. But you never know if you need one.

Well if a kid is arrested he has the right to an attorney away

True. But I think with this you are allowed an attorney before charges are set. Such as if they say you have weed and a school trial goes down before a police investigation, you get an attorney during that process.

The moment you are detained you have the right to answer no questions you do not want to (5th amendment) and you have the right to an attorney throughout the whole process already

It's a authoritarian regime at school. Strict rules should be followed or chaos could the lesson of the day.

Should not be legislated by the federal government. A state concern.

So if I wanted to, I could be able to wear a T Shirt with a naked person on it (not that I own one). That's ridiculous.

Against: Public schools are government property. Anybody on government property is subject to being searched, right?

Im not even sure what the first point really means.
The second and third points just seem silly and should be up to the discretion of the school.
I'd support the last three points if they were worded better.

I think it's a good idea to combat corruption in the public schools. I wouldn't want it to apply to private schools though. So yay for public, nay for private/other.

Some graphic t shirts should not be at school and can actually disrupt a classroom. Some kids bring guns and knives to school as well as drugs. The lockers are state property and should be allowed to be searched. Nay.

So they can wear shirts promoting sex, violence, amd hate?
They can deny a search if its been reported they have drugs in their locker?

Good ideas at first glance but I have to say nay

I oppose this bill. Students should learn to act professionally. Students should not wear shirts that depicts sexual material, advertising drugs, use profanity, etc

Would there be an exception for private schools and home schooled children?

Most likely not because it is not a government school.
