47. public schools CAN (and some do) have dress codes
actually, all have dress codes. they don't allow kids to come to school in bikinis, for example. but you get my point. public schools can even have uniforms. what they cannot do is make content based decisions like "we don't like military stuff, so military themed clothes are out" etc. the cases that are tougher are when schools censor certain clothing messages which according to case law they can do if they reasonably suspect it will be disruptive. a perfect example would be a t-shirt that said "hitler was right". clearly, that shirt would be legal in public, but not in public school.
