Update: High School Apologizes, Changes Policy After Backlash From Student Forced To Remove NRA T-Shirt
A high school principal has apologized for forcing a 16-year-old student to remove her National Rifle Association shirt last month.
Haley Bullwinkle, a sophomore at Canyon High School, said she was asked to change or face suspension because her T-shirt, which featured a buck, an American flag, and a hunter’s silhouette, violated the school’s dress code and promoted gun violence.
Bullwinkle’s father, Jed, emailed the school’s principal, Kimberly Fricker, about the situation.
Fricker responded saying that the gun on the shirt wasn’t allowed.
