School suspends over 20 for tribute shirts

Story: Local ACLU Joins Millard South Shirt Fight

Every day more and more students are facing 1-3 day suspensions for wearing a t-shirt that pays tribute to a classmate who passed away. Since it is well within the administrators rights to decide when and where teens can grieve and memorialize a friend, they plan to continue punishing these children for "disrupting the learning environment." On the other hand, the ACLU sees nothing offensive or distracting about the shirts, and plans to fight this case. In a related note, the school principal plans to spit on the grave of the fallen boy.
