Cheerleading Dress Code Controversy

Y'all usually side with the students on stories like this, and I don't blame you:  At a lot of high schools, cheerleaders wear their shirts and skirts to class on the same day that the football players wear their jerseys.

Now guys don't usually wear football pants to class - just the jerseys.  So there's no risk of any dress code violation there.  And it's important to point out that, at the Ohio schools mentioned in Tuesday's show, the cheerleaders are still allowed to wear their skirts - but only at games and assemblies.  So no more uniforms during class hours, unless they're worn over long shorts and T-shirts.

So I guess it comes down to how important you think it is for cheerleaders to be able to wear their uniforms in class.
