The Parkland Florida school shooting has inspired students at schools all over the country to participate in school walk-outs as a form of peaceful protest against the government's inaction regarding gun violence.

Is the University of Utah teaching students what we need to know for the real world? This is a complicated question.

I highly doubt there is any student in America who has not been “dress coded.” For those who don’t know, a dress code is a set of rules, especially in K-12 schools, that outline what a person is allowed to wear. Some of the most common dress codes include no hems more than two inches above the...
