I remember when I would go to school and they would have theme days, it would be a pretty cut and dry thing. Not too many things were not allowed.
You almost had to look to find something that would get you in trouble.
Now, it seems that liberals are going out of their way to get good, hardworking kids in trouble all because they don’t believe the way that the school wants them to believe.
Young women can’t seem to catch a break in high school these days. If they show any skin, they’re going to be sent home for violating the dress code. But fourteen-year-old freshman Ciretta MacKenzie found herself violating the dress code for wearing a T-shirt just like any other – except her school did not like the pro-Trump message written across the front.
“I don’t understand why I was dress coded. There’s no reason. I was supporting my president. What is wrong with that?”
Because MacKenzie felt that she had every right to wear the political shirt despite what people felt. However, Principal Brian Ernest felt that her “Make America Great Again” shirt was inappropriate. And he used the opportunity to lecture her on what he felt that way about Trump and his policies.
“He gave me a speech saying how we can’t mix church and state within the school and how President Trump is very controversial.”
The principal said that he was telling her to cover up her Trump shirt because he didn’t want her to be harassed.
“After I covered up because I was kind of ashamed, kids who don’t support Trump, some of them were, like, ‘You get what you deserve. Shouldn’t be wearing,’” she said.
Because the principal singled her out because of her love for Trump, she felt that others were taking notice of her when they otherwise wouldn’t have. Other students kept talking to her about the Trump shirt and picked on her for wearing it to school because it was very unpopular.
Because the teen felt that the school mishandled the situation, she wants to speak to administrators. She also planned to attend a school board meeting to speak out against the policy that she felt squelched her freedom of speech.
