3. Supreme Court Case :In recent years, the Booneyville, New Jersey, public school district has established a dress code for their students. The Booneyille School District students must wear the school uniform. The students are not permitted to wear hats, “hoodies”, or sneakers in school. In 1996, then President Clinton, in his State of the Union address, supported school uniforms in public schools.

A student decides to take Booneyville School District to court stating “the dress code violates his/her 9th

Amendment right”.

Under the 9th Amendment – you are guaranteed all

rights not directly expressed in the Constitution.

Under the 10th Amendment – states are given all

rights not directly expressed under the Constitution

This case went before the Supreme Court who do you think the Supreme Court would side with the student or the school district? Why or why not? Explain your answer in 1 well written paragraph.

  1. I think that the Supreme Court sided with the school. Even though the the 9th amendment says that ” The people have all other basic rights not said in the Constitution. ” The student would still have to follow school rules. So I think the Supreme Court sided with the school.

  2. I think that there should be no uniforms because kids should be able to choose what they get to wear not the school

  3. I think that the student had the right to where her own clothes because what if it is really cold out and she wanted to where a hat or a hood she should have the right to

  4. i think the supreme court choose the ditrict side because president clinton also agreed that there should be school alfits and all rights said in the constition go back to the states

  5. I think that they had the right to choose for the school to have a dress code because the state makes the rules and the students have to follow those rules even though they are unfair

  6. I believe that the student had the right to be against he dress code. Although the tenth amendment states that all rights not said in the constitution goes to the states and the state has all the right to have dress codes the student has all the right to be against them. The ninth amendment says all rights not said in the constitution goes to the people. So even if the teachers have the right to have a dress code the students have the right to be against the dress code. That is why I believe that the supreme court sided with the student backing up her rights with the ninth amendment. -Bridget

  7. I think the school should not allow kids to wear uniforms.I think this because the people have the right to were what ever they want according to the 9th amendment.

  8. I think that the supreme court chose the kids side because the government can not tell you what to wear and the other side got supported by the government. So then because of this the dress code was taken down but if this wasn’t supported the government the the dress code would be on because the state is in charge of their land.

  9. I believe that if a student goes to a public school, they are allowed to wear what they want because if someone goes to a private or charter school, they must wear a uniform to school. My cousin goes to a charter school and she must wear a uniform to school. Her sister goes to public school and she is allowed to wear what she wants.

  10. I think that the supreme court decided to go to with the student because the kids should have the right to wear what they want to wear at school.I think this because you are not at school to be at a fashion show.You are there to learn.
    That is why I think the supreme court choose the student.

  11. I think the supreme court said that she didnt need the uniform because the state didnt decide to wear uniforms to school. The district did. In the consittution it didnt say “had to wear uniforms to schools” She had rights to wear a sweater

  12. i think the supreme court didnt allow the students to wear what they want because its violating the schools rules, and a fraction of the school follows it

  13. I think the supreme court sided with the students because i think the supreme court would see that with out the students there would be no schools and with out the schools there would be no school district and the students should be able to decide what they can or can not wear
