Yep. There has to be a "balance" somewhere on this issue. And we also have to realize that these are kids (going through adolescence), inwhich some are searching for identity/individuality (and attention).
This girl's example is pretty tame compared to some that I have seen with the body peircings and especially the full blown Goth look.
My oldest boy (a junior) goes to JVS (which supports several neighboring school districts). When I look at the way some of these kids are dressed, I just shake my head that their parents let them out of the house looking like that.
I can remember in my day when schools frowned on Beatle haircuts.
