In an effort to support the troops, a 12-year old girl donned a red shirt which honored her father, a deployed US soldier. Administrators objected.
Citing the shirt lacked a collar, and thus in violation of their school policy, Cejai Taylor was suspended. Somewhat understandable, right? But then there’s rub – the incident occurred at Mahaffey Middle School, located on Fort Campbell Army Base in Kentucky.
You read that right folks: a deployed soldier’s kid was suspended for wearing a pro-military t-shirt on a military base.
