School board ignores parents

---- — School board ignores parents

Editor:

District 118 school Students do not need uniforms. Recently, parents were asked to vote whether the kids should be required to wear uniforms to school. The majority of parents voted against it.

Now the board has voted to require a uniform dress code. That tells me the school board really doesn’t care what we, as parents, think. When parents voted on it, board members didn’t get the result they wanted, so they decided to vote on it themselves.

I say if the school board wants the kids to wear uniforms, then the school board can pay for them.
