Daxx Dalton (5th Grader) Suspended for Wearing an Anti-Obama Shirt

Dann Dalton, An 11-year-old in 5th grade, was suspended for wearing an anti-Obama shirt. When officials saw it they told him he could change shirts, turn the shirt inside out, or be suspended. The school had an interesting explanation for the suspension.


"Aurora Public Schools would not talk about the case but said the district "Respects a student's right to free speech, such as the right to wear specific clothing," but administrators say they review any situation that interrupts the learning environment.

Paperwork submitted by the school district says Daxx Dalton was not suspended for wearing the shirt, but for willful disobedience and defiance.

This seems like a political stunt or an attempt to stoke some controversy on the part of the boy and/or his father. Still, the school handled this wrong and the kid should not have been suspended. The family intends to pursue legal recourse.

It would be interesting to see what would happen if his friends all decided to wear the same/similar shirt as a protest, or someone else wears a political shirt with the opposite message (pro-Obama or anti-McCain).
