There is outrage after a student is told she cannot wear a commemorative 9/11 tee shirt to school. Now the family is speaking out about the situation.
A Sacramento, California family is shocked to hear that their daughter was banned from wearing a commemorative 9/11 shirt last Thursday on September 11th.
School officials say it didn't meet the dress code.
The student's stepfather, who is a marine with more than twenty-five years of experience, says it means a lot to him for her to be able to wear the shirt to school.
But the school spokesman is still defending the decision and says students are only allowed to wear non-uniform clothing on free dress days. September 11th is not one of those days.
