13-Year-Old Boy Suspended For Carrying Purse In School
13-year-old Skylar Davis of Anderson County Senior-Junior School in Kansas has been suspended indefinitely for wearing a purse to school. That suspension is "indefinite" because apparently he isn't allowed to return to school until he agrees not to wear his purse and, well, it doesn't sound like that's happening anytime soon.
According to Skylar's mother, Leslie Willis, Skylar had been bringing the purse to school for weeks without incident. No explanation was given regarding why he suddenly couldn't carry it and there's nothing in the school's dress or conduct code that prohibits him from carrying a purse. Girls are apparently allowed to carry purses in school.
Willis says, "I was a little furious, and I called the school [and spoke to Hillard] to reverify the story, and yeah, he refused to take off his Vera Bradley bag, nothing more to do it."
For his part Skylar just wants to be treated fairly, saying, "I don't think everyone should be treated differently. Everyone should have the same privileges."
The school has provided no comment.
What do you think of the school's actions, Instincters?
