DOE forcing kid to wear uniform
From Fox 5:
Over the past few years, public school uniforms and dress codes have become more common than not in public schools. The New York City Department of Education says wearing uniforms promotes better learning, student performance and conduct.
But that same DOE also gives parent a choice to opt out if you don't want to follow the dress code.
In Queens, one grandmother says her grandson wasn't given that choice. And she says instead of going to class with the other kids, he sits in a room by himself for the day.
