School Changes Policy On Breast Cancer Bracelets
Last week Rod and I talked about a girl in Maine who was suing her school after being suspended for wearing the popular breast cancer bracelets. The "I Love Boobies" bracelets have been very popular but the district stated they were a distraction so they threatened to suspend students if they were caught wearing them. Now they've changed their mind after the girl went to the ACLU with a lawsuit threat against the school.
According to WLBZ, the district said the bracelets violated the school's dress code and told students they would be suspended if they refused to take them off. Students said it was a violation of their free speech rights so after the lawsuit came about, school officials changed their mind. Students should no longer have a problem wearing them as long as they're not a distraction.
