College Dress Code Debate

Morehouse College in Atlanta, a historically African-American school known for some pretty distinguished and notable graduates like Dr. Martin Luther King Junior, civil rights leader Julian Bond and former U.S. Surgeon General David Satcher. Young men took pride in how they looked and carried themselves across the campus. When Doctor King went there men wore neck-ties and jackets. Well, fast-forward to 2009 where some young men are wearing sagging pants, lewd-T-shirts, pajamas or even women's clothes to class. Now Morehouse is taking a stance and implenting a policy for students to wear more appropriate attire. Do you think colleges should have dress codes? We want to hear your thoughts.
