I was reading News Reports on msnbc.com. ( I don't know how to post the links if some one has the patience to show me. I would like that.) The report stated:
Boy wears dress and heels to school, gets suspended.
In Port Orchard, WA, A 15 yr old boy wore a dress and heels to school on Wednesday. It was kinda a challege form his mom. He told her that it wouldn't be that hard to wear heels and she basiclly told him go ahead and try. So he did and decided to wear a dress as well.
When he arrived at school he was suspended until the end of the school year. Later it was changed to 3 days and he is not allowed to participate in the 9th grade dance or field trip.
In the report the show a picture of him in the dress and the heels. The dress was lose fitting and went to his ankles. I realize he is a boy but I eally think the punishment was rediculous. He is a teenage boy that was trying to prove his mom wrong. Isn't that what all teenagers want to do?
How do you feel about this? Was he wrong? His mom? Or the school?
