Person County Student Suspended For Wearing White T-Shirt

Posted May 4, 2005 3:53 a.m. EDT

— A Person County mother is appealing her son's suspension.

She claims the school unfairly suspended her son for 10 days -- just for wearing a white T-shirt.

The woman claims her son did not violate school dress codes.

But school administrators interpreted the T-shirt as a gang symbol and therefore as a direct violation to school dress codes.
