Student rights[edit]

In October 2012, nearly two dozen students were told by the vice principal to remove their shirts that supported gay rights. The American Civil Liberties Union then issued a statement urging school officials to reconsider their censorship of pro-gay attire.[2] The assistant principal said the shirts were distracting. Students said the pro-gay shirts were no more distracting than other shirts supporting different causes. As of November 23, 2012, it was reported that students were permitted to wear the pro-gay shirts.[3]
