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 “thedress 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. No i dont think they should have shcool uniforms because these kids are being forced to do this and there instead should be a vote

  2. Having uniforms is unfair to the students because they have to wear the same clothes everyday! And will get annoyed from it

  3. i think i am on the side of no dress code because there is nothing wrong with wearing sneakers and wearing hoddies but not hats but partly think that you should because i think it is what people say it is disrespecful

  4. i think it is not wrong and have the right to give the school uniforms because still today kids in schools still have uniforms to wear in school. still president clinton in 1996 supported uniforms in her state’s schools.
