Principal Makes 5 Year Old Turn Michigan Shirt Inside Out for Fear of Gang Affiliations
Kid definitely looks like a gang member to me. Probably the ring leader of that Toddler fight club. Anyway, in this Oklahoma school the kids can only wear OU or Oklahoma State gear. You can’t even wear a Thunder shirt which isn’t a problem for James Harden.
All other sports related shirts prohibited based on a 2005 change to the dress code policy. So, when the Principle was asked why he made the kid turn his shirt inside out, he mentioned the policy.
“This has presented an opportunity to review the current OKCPS District Dress Code Policy that has been in place since 2005. It states that clothing bearing names or emblems of all professional and collegiate athletic teams (with the exception of Oklahoma colleges and universities) are prohibited. In cooperation with the Oklahoma City Police Department Gang Task Force, the policy was approved in 2005 after concerns that nationwide gangs used popular sports clothing to represent individual gangs. As when any policy is questioned; OKCPS administration will review the policy to determine if changes need to be made.” –Karl Springer, Superintendent
My reaction to that………
Common sense is lost on so many people. Maybe he thought the kid was going to smoke weed before class like the Michigan football team.
