School Sued Over Teen's 'Winnie the Pooh' Socks

FoxNews reports:

A seventh-grader might end up in court for wearing

Winnie the Pooh socks to school.

Toni Kay Scott, 14, was sent to an in-school suspension program called Students With Attitude Problems last year for violating a dress code, according to a lawsuit against the Napa Valley Unified School District and Redwood Middle School.

She had donned socks with the Tigger character from the Winnie the Pooh cartoons on them, along with a denim skirt and a brown shirt with a pink border.

But the school's policy requires students to wear clothes with solid colors in blue, white, green, yellow, khaki, gray, brown and black. Permitted fabrics are cotton twill, corduroy and chino. No denim is allowed.


Comment: If you don't know anything else about this case, what do youu think about a school that names their in-school suspension program, "Students With Attitude Problems?!"

So, was this student reprimanded for the socks or the denim skirt?
I believe that it had to do more with the skirt. The school system said no "denim". She had on a denim skirt.
