There are lots of limits I impose on my students before we ever get
to creating art. The school tells them what to wear so I wear the
same thing even though I deplore uniforms. I limit what they can say
and do in my classroom. They are not allowed to cuss or call others by
racial slurs. They can't smoke or drink and they get in trouble if they
say "NO" to me. Freedom of expression is very restricted in my art room.

Is any of this part of the question about being "school appropriate" ?
