YOUR THREE CENTS: Should "I (heart) boobies" bracelets be banned from schools?

An unusual twist to Breast Cancer Awareness Month.
A court battle between two girls and their Pennsylvania school over "I (heart) boobies!" bracelets could go all the way to the U.S. Supreme Court.
               
The Easton Area School District will appeal a federal appeals court's decision that rejected its claim the bracelets are lewd and should be banned from school.
               
The case started in 2010 when two girls, 12 and 13, challenged the school's ban on the bracelets designed to promote Breast Cancer Awareness among young people.
               
They filed suit when they were suspended for defying the ban on their school's Breast Cancer Awareness Day.
               
In August, the 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals upheld a lower court's decision in favor of the girls, saying also that the district didn't prove the bracelets are disruptive.
               
But the school superintendent says that ruling has compromised administrators' abilities to intervene in what is and what is not appropriate in school.

Easton is one of several school districts around the country to ban the bracelets, which are distributed by the nonprofit "Keep A Breast Foundation" in California.
